Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Expectation


“Err, Mrs. Human, that is not me.”

“I know Tabby, it is Roschti, the feline that lives next door, he paid a visit in our garden.”

“Correction Mrs. Human, he invaded my territory. What are you going to do about it.”

“Nothing Tabby, it is your territory, not mine. If Roschti wants to take a walk through our garden, he is not doing any harm.”

“Of course he is, he is leaving his scent everywhere he walks, he is offending my personal possessions. Tell him to go.”

“Tabby, you can tell him to go.”

“But he will start a fight.”

“Then let him walk through the garden. He is really not doing any harm but just crossing our garden to get to the other side.”

“Of course he is, look he is sniffing at one of my personal tree stems, and destroying the scent of the lotus blossoms that grow where I walk,  but what else an you expect from a different feline.”

“But he is leaving the stalk where they are, and I have not seen any lotus blossoms.”

“Only felines see lotus blossoms, and now he knows where my stalks are because he has left his scent on them. I now have to reposess them by leaving my scent on them.”

“Does it really make any different Tabby? You are not taking the stalks anywhere.”

“Of course it makes a difference, they now smell different.”

“I cannot smell anything Tabby, It is a wonderful day, the sun is shining and there is Spring in the air.”

“Correction, there is Roschti in the air.” ¨

“Where are you going Tabby.”

“I am going to Roschti’s garden of course I have a few scents to leave on a few plants in his garden. That will show him that he cannot do as he pleases in my territory.”

“That is very childish Tabby.”

“Childish does not exist in meow Mrs. Human, only kittenish, one of the biggest insults you can give a feline.”

“But it doesn’t seem to bother Roschti.”

“Of course not, it is all a matter of feline psychology. He has now taken possession of my territory by sniffing at my branches.”

“But you are now sniffing in his territory.”

“But he was there first hissss.”

“i will never undestand felines.”

“Mrs. Human, if you try to understand humans you will see that is a psychologicyl impossibility.”
