Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Treasure

Tabby

“Tabby, you will have to change your sleeping place. That chair belongs to my No. 1 son and he will need it when he returns.”

“I also need it Mrs. Human. It is actually my chair. You are again being absent minded. Everything here belong to me. It is only with my express permission that I allow you to use it. Your overgrown kitten can wait until I decide to go somewhere else to sleep. At the moment he is not here.”

“Tabby you cannot just take possession of something because you want to sleep there.”

“I am not taking possession of anything, it is mine. You cannot possess something you already own. And come away from the window. You are blocking my view of the wall.”

“But it is just a wall.”

“You might think so, but a wall is not always a wall. If you had spent as much time as I have watching walls, you would realise the value of a wall. Hands off my fur ball collection.”

“I only wanted to put them outside on the patio, they are beginning to smell.”

“My fur balls do not smell, at least not when they are fresh.*

“But these have been in your room for at least a week.”

“They mature with time, Mr. Human, consider them similar to a bottle of human wine. The older it gets, the more the flavour develops. But come to think of it, they have begun to smell. I will immdeiately manufacture some new fresh furballs to replace them.*

“Good, then I will throw them in the garbage.”

“You will not throw them anywhere. I will perform a ceremonial burial in the garden. They are part of me, my treasures. And now you may refresh my sleepling place.”

“Which one Tabby, you have so many.”

“Do not ask silly questions, all of them of course. I have not yet decided which one is to be today’s sleeping place. Perhaps I might visit them all. There are 23 sleeping hours in a day and I cannot afford to neglect them. You may begin  with the cushion on top of the cupboard. Do not forget to clean the frame of my Garfield photo, it has paw marks.”

“Of course Tabby, anything else? Oh, she is now sleeping. Poor little Tabby leads such an exhausting life.”

  1. Perfect! From one cat servant (to Smudge, 3 yrs old, rescued from certain starvation in the state park) to another. What comedians and manipulators they are–it’s all written in their eyes and those almost imperceptible ‘whispers’ of instruction, reminder, and catty-tude! 🙂

  2. Dear Tabby, I believe I’ve discovered the essential difference between felines and canines. Humans exist to serve felines whereas humans and canines are partners. My human said that some humans consider dogs to be “servile” and she explained that means we are servants. She said she doesn’t see it that way. I know that I take good care of her because today I saw the gate to the front yard was open and I was able to take the opportunity to go out front and bark to scare away anyone who might come to harm my human who is, when all is said an done, an amazingly skillful hunter. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      My human has the duty of taking good care of me. As a reward I allow her to give me a tummy tickle and to prepare my food. I also allow her to go out whilst I remain at home, catching up on my sleep. I often help her to eat her food, by waiting at the side of her table for morsels that she will throw to me. I say nothing, do not beg, is all done by the telepathic powers of suggestion.

      • My sister Bear has those powers, but I’m afraid, I don’t, or not to any really helpful degree. I mean right now I’m looking at my human telling her clearly that it is dinner time and I am hungry, but she isn’t paying any attention. Your very hungry canine friend, Dusty T. Dog
