Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Symbiosis


Mrs. Human said make it short, because she needs the computer for more important stuff. So there you have it, it is not possible to live in symbiosis with a human. Someone has to do the organising and someone has to follow instructions. I told Mrs. Human that the computer is now reserved for my important views from the feline world and cats are first, humans somewhere lower along the line. I suppose Mrs. Human would be second as there is nothing else here to take the place.

If I want something done, like emptying my litter tray or my food bowl being filled then I give my instructions to my staff, Mrs. Human, and she does the necessary, so forget symbiosis. I adopted Mrs. Human, to work and not discuss technical details on the meaning of life. I am the meaning in her life, that is quite clear.

I have symbiosis with a hair ball and the hairball has symbiosis with my fur. It is a feline circle of necessary recycling. I swallow the fur, form a hairball and reproduce the hairball for a worthy symbiosis. If the hairball is not accepted by me, Mrs. Human disposes of it in the garbage. That is not symbiosis, that is one of her purposes in life. We might live in the same place, but that is necessary as she must always be attending to my needs.

There is perhaps a certain symbiosis with birds and mice. If I catch one, they would be a perfect meal, but they are not easy to catch. Felines amongst themselves do not have symbiosis, as we do not like each other. We have a territorial symbiosis, and every feline has its own. The word “share” does not exist in meow, so it depends on who can run faster than the others, or who has the longest and sharpest claws. I was always very fast on my paws and I find that the best solution. Why fight when it can be solved otherwise.

And now I mushttps://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/symbiosis/t go, not because Mrs. Human is still hovering and waiting for the computer, but I have other things to do. I have a very strong symbiosis with sleep.

  1. Dear Tabby, Bear is having symbiosis with an empty yogurt container. The container wants to be destroyed and she wants to destroy it. It’s a beautiful thing, oh, wait, she’s done. Now it’s trash and our human, who has symbiosis with a giant machine that sucks things up will probably be contending with all this since company is coming. I wish we were having a symbiotic walk. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I know what you mean. You must beware of those human sybiotic giant machines, they are everywhere and make a loud noise. She uses it every day, that is why I do not leave my bed on top of the cupboard in the morning until she is finished. I often have a symbiosis with catnip, but Mrs. Human said that is not sybiosis but addiction.

  2. I believe my Meekah has the same non-symbiotic relationship with me. She Meowands (am I sayint that right) and it is up to me to determine what her needs are. Thankfully she is quite good at meowing at whatever it is she needs (food/water, litter, outside)… Other times she just goes around meowing till I give her some attention, then will be perfectly fine. Or it might be because one of her favorite sleeping spot is otherwise occupied with some object.
