Daily Feline Prompt: Shining Feline


“Tabby you are sleeping your life away.”

“Which one, Mrs. Human? 4 of them have already disappeared and I now only have five left. It cannot be No. 9 life, as I am not ready for that one yet.”

“It is just a figure of speech Tabby.”

“But definitely not Meow speech. I suppose I should rise and shine as we felines say, after a long meditation. I have places to go and things to see.”

“Oh, I did not realised you had such a full apppointment calendar.”

“I always have stress Mrs. Human. First of all I have to check my food bowl to see if something intersting has arrived whilst I have been sleeping.”

“I topped up your vitamin pellets Tabby, to make sure you have enough to eat.”

“I was thinking more in the lines of something special, something to brighten up my day, to make the sun shine on my fur. Vitamin pellets are not exactly a highlight. They have no “umph” and certainly do not activate my taste buds. Any tuna fish around?”

“Today is not tuna fish day Tabby.”

“Every day is a tuna fish day Mrs. Human.”

“Not in my calendar Tabby.”

“Another human mistake. We do not have calendars in Meow, we do not need them. We feel it in the whiskers and my whiskers tell me tuna fish.”

“I do not have such wonderful shiny long whiskers Tabby, that seem to be a feline radar system for trapping tuna fish signals.”

“Another mistake in the human construction. In that case you leave me no choice but to do what I must do.”

“You are going places?”

“Yes, I am searching for a feline bed.”

“But you have just been sleeping, I though you were going places.”

“I am, I am going places to find a different bed. It is boring sleeping in the same place all the time, I have to have diversity in my life. It is monotonous to sleep on the same round cushion, I am now looking for something long and soft, like a human bed.”

“No Tabby, my bed cover is afterwards full of feline fur.”

“You should accept that as an honour Mrs. Human, I do not leave my fur on any surface. I choose very carefully. Wake me up if the vitamin pellets are replaced by something more tasty.”

“But I said today is not tuna fish day.”

“And I said today is tuna fish day. I like to have the last meow in a human-feline discussion.”

“Yes, I noticed Tabby.”

        • If Tabby was around when we were eating in the evening, we would give her a piece of ham to make her happy. Now as soon as we sit down at the table, she waits silently at the door and looks with pleading eyes. Generally Mr.Swiss is first in the kitchen and gives her something. Then I arrive and she makes a repeat performance, and gets a second helping. That must be feline psycho analysis of the human.


          • Dogs do the same thing, but they add running in circles and singing and yipping so it’s quite entertaining. They don’t seem to think we remember that we just GAVE them something, so they will try is several times on the same person if you leave and reenter the room. Pretty funny stuff. But it works. Damned if it doesn’t work.


  1. Dear Tabby, I hope you remember the stragedy employed by my little sister to ensure she gets tuna every day. It did work. I know you say “hunger strike” doesn’t exist in Meow, but… Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      No problem Dusty, thanks for the advice, but I have to handle this in the feline way. She might get suspicious if I beging to use canine tricks and see through it all. I will succeed eventually, am still searching for the perfect solution. In the meanwhile I will chew on the hard vitamin pellets and produce hairballs, leavning them for a discovery when she might tread on one.
      Your sister in pawful friendship – Tabby T. Cat.
