Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Marathon


I am completely exhausted. It all began in the morning when I heard Mr. Swiss moving in my territory. That usually means he does human things like drinking coffee and feeding birds. I love the part with the feeding birds, but as soon as I appear they fly away – no idea why. So Mr. Swiss returns and I begin my day of hard work. My paws are tired, my whiskers are drooping. I had left my No. 1 sleeping position, the one where I curl up and bury my head in my paws and had taken some refreshement. Believe me it is hard work chewing on those vitamin pellets, but early in the morning humans are not capable of serving anyhing better.

It was time for phase 2 of my marathon day, and so I decided to make myself comfortable on Mrs. Human’s grown up kitten’s bed, as he was not there. This time I repeated the curling position but anticlockwise. My first laps of sleep are usually clockwise. A few hours later I realised that there was again movment in my household and decided to make investitgations. The remainder of the vitamin pellets in the bowl had been topped up with a new layer, full of tempting bait, so I decided to take a sample. I forced them down my throat, but due to the exhaustions of eating, I decided to partake in lap 3 of the daily marathon. This time I decided on a stretched out position in the bathroom on the nice fluffy carpet. Of course I checked first of all that my humans had already had their daily lick from the shower.

After another few hours, I was ready for something completely different. Perhaps a walk, but the dreaded enemey was still waiting for me outside. Everything was white, full of snow. I had no chance, so decided on No. 4 marathon, but this time on the nice comfortable settee with my favourite blanket. Did I hear the sound of a tin opener. I forced my eyes to open and entered the kitchen to find a bowl of yes, tuna fish. It must be that day of the week I thought.

After completing my meal, I was weary, absolutely tired out, no strength left. Marathons can be exhausting, expecially when combined with sleep. I sank into my favourite cushion at the top of the cupboard and decided to stay awhile and then I heard Mr. Human in the kitchen again – was it really already the next day, yes time flies when you are running marathons all the time.

  1. Dear Tabby, The Vast Monster of Snow made another appearance over night and our human doesn’t even want to take a picture of it. It’s difficult for me to comprehend, but I think she’s over it and wants to move to Tucson. Even my little sister doesn’t seem very interested, which I find very strange. Spring will come, Tabby. My human has promised and I’m sure she has the power to make it so. Yours forever and always, Dusty T. Dog

    My human is constantly taking pictures of snow. I think she is joining the snow gang. She does not even bother to shovel it away, and kill it. I think it is taking over. She now measures it – it is taller than me. If I went out in the snow I would sink and never be found again until Spring when the monster disappears again. I have not been for a walk since at least a week, I am getting catstraphobia, I have to get out, but am surrounded. Is Tucson that place that the humans call “toosun” I have heard of it. Hope it does not mean that you are no longer on my wave length. It is always good to receive your news.

  3. Woof, y’all! We haven’t got any snow at the moment, but The Television Snow Predictors are saying tonight it will come, mostly as ice. OUR humans do not seem particularly happy about that. I guess neither are we. Snow can be fun, but ice between our paw pads, not so much. But spring will come. We’ve been promised.

    Forever, The Gang of Two
