Daily Feline Prompt: Ordinary Feline


“Mrs. Human, I am bored.”

“Take a walk outside Tabby, I am sure you will find something to do.”

“I need something new, something dynamic, something I have never done before.”

“Why not practice walking up the ladder to your bed on top of the cupboard, instead of taking a dangerous leap.”

“No, I don’t feel like it and that would be boring. Any feline can climb a ladder, but not every feline can take an exact jump and reach the top of the cupboard. Only gifted felines like myself can do that.”

“Until you miss the top and fall Tabby.”

“I never miss the top, I am too good for that. Perhaps you could organise some birds or mice for me to play with. That would not be boring, something completely different.”

“Tabby you can go outside and find your own mice and birds.”

“That is not fun, they run away when they see me, no-one likes me.”

“Perhaps that is because you chase them and try to catch them with your claws.”

“Of course I do, that’s what cats are for.”

“Look Tabby, there is a nice doggy walking along the path, perhaps he is also bored and would be pleased to play with you.”

“Mrs. Human, I might be bored, but I do not have a death wish. Cats do not play with dogs, we fight.”

“But it would not be so boring.”

“I think I will take a sleep for a change for a few hours to give you time to think of something to amuse me when I awake again.”

    • My mum always said she pitied “my old man” which is cockney for future husband, as he would only be living on fish fingers. Everytime I offered to help she said no, because I could not do it as good as she could. I have up eventually. I must have learnt something as Mr. Swiss has never complained, and now he is too old to complain.
      Tabby has often offered to lick the plates clean to save the expense of the dish washer, but I told her I prefer to do it myself.


  1. Dear Tabby, I’m afraid our day is going to be very ordinary. Yesterday we had some extraordinary excitement. Some guy came up on our front step and stole an envelope that my human had put under the storm door where there’s a gap. He ran away. I barked fiercely, showed him my big teeth and sprayed saliva in his direction. Our human saw him, so I don’t think he’ll be back. My human was very upset and called the police. Now everything is back to normal and I don’t like that kind of excitement. Our human was emitting “I’m upset” vibes all evening. That worries me because it’s my job to see that she’s always happy and safe. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Yes my Mrs. Human said something about it. When humans get excitement vibes everything is upside down. They are not a cool as we are. As a feline it is a little different. It is Mrs. Human’s job to see that I am happy and safe, but we often disagree on happiness, I say happiness is a bowl of tuna fish (preferable a Versace designed bowl, but that hasn’t happened yet) and freedom to go where I want, which is more or less OK, until the evening. Then my cat flap is in lock down condition, never did understand that one.
      Be a brave canine Dusty as always and defend your territoriy to the last bite.
      Tabby T. Cat
