Daily Prompt: Hesitating Feline


“Tabby, don’t you want to go outside?2

“No, why should I?”

“You have been laying around all day inside and sleeping most of the time. It would be more healthy to get some fresh air and take a walk.”

“It was raining, my whiskers will get wet.”

“It stopped raining some time ago.”

“What about my paws. I will have muddy paws and will have to wash them.”

“It is only muddy on the grass. If you keep to the path, they will stay clean.”

“But there is no fun walking on a path. The action is where things are growing, creeping, and moving. No, I think I will stay at home, or shall I risk a walk outside. Oh the decisions to be made in the life of a feline. What little delicacy are you serving me this evening. It might help me to make  decision.”

“Your bowl is always full of healthy vitamin pellets Tabby.”

“I know Mrs. Human, and I am eternally grateful, but I was talking of delicacy. I am now in that happy comfortable state that I do not hesitate to indulge in any fancy in regard to diet, but watch the consequences, and do not continue any course which adds to weight or bulk and consequent discomfort. In other words, any tuna fish?”

“Plain or garnished with a flavour of your choice. By the way that statement just now, was that one of yours.”

“I found it on my pawpad, said by some cat William Whiskers Banting. He was one of the most famous for ensuring that our ancestors had a comfortable 10th life in the pyramids where we were preseved during the time that we were worshipped as gods.”

“Sounds morbid to me.”

“You are just jealous Mrs. Human, because you do not get a tenth life.”

  1. Dear Tabby, We had tuna last night! All of us! Our human, me, Mindy and Bear. I got to clean out the tuna can, too. I don’t know what the special occasion was, but I’m glad for it. Today we get to have kibble! Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      You clean out the tuna can? I must have a serious meow with Mrs. Human. I am definitely being deprived of my feline rights. Sometimes Mr. Human throws Kibble for me to catch and eat, but i only do it to make him feel wanted. It would be so much easier for us both if he just pu it in my bowl. All the chasing and running for food is so childish, but humans never learn.
      Yesterday may have been international dog day, hence the feast.
      Make the most of your turna when you get it we felines always say.
      Tabby T. Cat
