Daily Feline Prompt: Crafty Felines


“I think you will have to leave this challenge Tabby.”


“Because you do not have opposable thumbs and cannot craft.”

“Who says I cannot  craft. I produce the most beautiful, aesthetic and perfectly shaped hairballs.”

“No, Tabby, not in my garden.”

“No problem Mrs. Human, the neighbour still has some room.”
