Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Instinct

Roschti 14.03 (1)

“Look Tabby, Roschti your feline friend is sitting in the garden. Perhaps he wants to play with you. Why don’t you ask him.”

“Friend? No idea what that means. Mrs. Human, that feline imposter has no business to sit in my territory, and we felines do not play, the word does not even exist in the meow vocabulary. Just be informed that I do not like Roschti, and he does not like me.”

“But he is always paying visits, I am sure he wants to spend some time with you. I cannot understand why you do not like him.”

“It is pure feline instinct. As one of our great furry leaders Lord Byron Paws said “There is no instinct like that of the claw” and they are very wise words. Mrs. Human, either you chase away Roschti or blood will be spilt.”

“Oh, that sounds serious. Your blood or Roschti’s?”

“Neither nor, Mrs. Human. If you do not chase him away my claws will be put into operation on your arm, and if you chase him away he will probably retaliate and give you a sample of his claws. Both ways you will lose, but I will win. It is all in the instinct you know.”

“But we humans use the word instinct when we do not have a know how to explain why animals do certain things.”

“That is not instinct Mrs. Human, that is human stupidity. Cats first and instinct second and if I explained it to you, you would not understand.”

“How do you know Tabby, I might very well understand.”

“No Mrs. Human, that is instinct. I know you would not understand.”

  1. Dear Tabby, My little sister instinctively knows when the Bark Box arrives. I do not know how she knows, but she knows. And now it’s here and she has a new toy and we have several new kinds of cookies. There are Meow Boxes by the way. Uh-oh, Bear just had an instinctive sense that Bullet is walking by the front of the house with his human. I don’t care about that because I have factual information that tells me Bullet is not my problem. There is a fence between him and me and his owner has him on a rope. Yours forever and ever, instinctively, Dusty T. Dog

      “Mrs. Human where is my meow box?”
      Human said we don’t have them in Switzerland. She said I have everything I could wish for and do not need more. My instinct tells me that Mrs. Human does not understand the simple feline needs of life such as a paw friendly tin opener and diamond studied cat flap. And now I must go, my instinct tells me I must have a tummy tickle. “Are you ready Mrs. Human?”
