Daily Feline Prompt: Ruminating Feline

Tabby 07.03 (1)

“Tabby, what are you doing with your head in that watering can?”

“Slurp, meow, slurp, slurp.”

“Tabby take your head out of that can at once and stop drinking the water.”

“Did you say something Mrs. Human. Slurp, slurp, meow. Mmmm that was a wonderful drop, most refreshing, full of the flavours of the past days of rain.”

“Tabby, that water is not for drinking purposes.”

“That is my decision Mrs. Human. It is rainwater, collected over days, and maturing to a degree of perfection. I would say Chateau Chatte 2017, a delicious lingering taste on the tongue.”

“I see that differently Tabby. That water has been collecting and is not clean. You could get ill from drinking it.”

“Cool down Mrs. Human, it is very tasty, a rare flavour if I may say so.”

“It is not healthy.”

“Mrs. Human, I am feline, and we felines are made of stronger stuff than humans. Such water is ideal for the manufacture of hairballs. They add a particularly individual flavour.”

“Tabby, your hairball ruminations are not very appetising.”

“But the next hairballs will be particularly well flavoured, due to this exquisite water. And now excuse me, I am still in the process of absorbing its particular mineral qualities.”

“That water is dirty Tabby, and you could be infected by all sorts of germs.”

“No problem, Mrs. Human, “germs” does not exist in meow, and thus we cannot have problems with drinking the water.”

“Meow seems to be a language of convenience Tabby.”

“As one of our great leaders Martin Luther Cat said “The ultimate measure of a feline is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and choices of water”.”
