Daily Feline Prompt: Human or Feline Replacement?


“Tabby, where are you?”

“I am viewing the extent of my territory outside.”

“Ah, yes I can see you, sitting in front of the window again.”

“Actually I think it would be time for a makeover. Spring is arriving and my paths should be improved upon.”

“You will have to be patient Tabby, I will organise the gardener and he will come in a month to organise things.”

“In a month, by then the mice will be out in the fields. I want to take my chances whilst they are still building their tunnels. Every human should know that.”

“Tabby I am no longer as young as I was, and cannot manage the gardening work on my own.”

“Mrs. Human I think I will have to find a new human who is fit enough to care for me and my territory. You used to read the wishes from my whiskers, now I have to remind you of your duty.”

“You think so Tabby?”

“Definitely. I saw a shout out for someone wanting a kitten in your Facebook last week. I could make a call for a human slave to take care of my needs in Pawbook.


Human needed for 100% care of feline, no free time allowed and permanent residence permit.
Regular filling of food bowl when empty with tuna fish – no vitamin pellets allowed
Care of recycling tray
Regular care of hairball collection
Regular cleaning of various sleeping cushions
Permanent observation of window for opening when necessary to allow entrance of feline.”

“You mean my services are no longer needed Tabby.”

“Decisions must be taken Mrs. Human, even presidents have to be firm. We cannot have humans sleeping on the job and moving around all the time. I have to have a control of all movements at all times.”

“Oh, in that case you could perhaps move to where Roshti lives. He heard that you are unsatisfied with your feline kingdom and said he would not mind taking your place. He loves the healthy vitamin pellets, and likes to stay in places where he is needed. He will even take care of his own hairball collection and is quite happy to take over your territory as it is, with no alterations. Yes, I think I could easily adapt to Roschti, we would get on like a human-feline house on fire. He even has a wonderful red coat.”

“Do what Mrs. Human? Does not come into the question. I am not letting that red coated horror feline put a paw over my cat flap. Forget it. I am not letting anyone into my territory, it is mine and is to be preserved as it should ┬ábe.”

“I thought you were moving out Tabby, and searching for a new human.”

“I changed my mind Mrs. Human – for the time being.”
