Daily Feline Prompt: The feline quickens


“Tabby you are speeding through the home like a ┬áracing car.”

“It is time for my spring training. Nature is quickening, the mice are stirring and the birds are gathering new strength and energy. I have to keep up with it all. So, out of my way Mrs. Human, you are standing in the centre of my training lane. I have to have a clear path to be able to exercise all my muscles and whiskers. You know what they say “you snooze, you lose” and I must┬áremain fit.”

“Yes, Tabby, but don’t you think you might be overdoing it a little. No, Tabby, not over my feet.”

“It is not my problem if your feet are in the wrong place at the wrong time and I can train my jumping abilities. The feline Olympics always take place in spring and I have to collect my prizes.”


“Yes, a sleeping lazy feline will never win anything. Last year I only found 10 mice and they all got away, because they were faster than me. Perhaps I could try some press ups, and aftewards a few rolls on my back. Of course I must have the corret food to build up my muscles.”

“I can help you there Tabby. Look a nice dish of viatmin pallets. They are full of goodness, and protein.”

“Protein? Is that a new breed of mouse. Do they move fast?”

“No Tabby, protein is part of the vitamines contained in those wonderful pellets.”

“Does tuna fish also have protein?”

“Yes, but it is not so much.”

“No point in rushing things Mrs. Human, I do not want to overdo it. You know what they say “slowly and surely wins the race”. I think I will stay with tuna fish. Vitamin pellets would be too much at the moment. So out of the way, and time me with that phone thing.”

“Ok, Tabby, 1 mnute from the beginning to the end of the corridor.”

“Oh, I sill have to train more, and bring it down to half the time. Those mice do not wait for me. I do not want to be the joke of the mouse holes.”

“Of course Tabby, perhaps it might help if you eat less. You have put on some weight during the Winter.”

“No problem Mrs. Human, my speed training will help with weight loss. Out of the way, I am coming.”
