Daily Feline Prompt: Timely Felines

Tabby 12.04 (1)

“Mrs. Human, I am waiting.”

“What are you waiting for?”

“It is time for my dinner.”

“Your dinner is in your food bowl.”

“That is not dinner. Dinner is something that you can eat with your eyes. An arrangement of meat and spices, perhaps garnished with a pinch of tarragon to encourage the taste buds.  A bowl of dehydrated brown pellets that I have to choke down my delicate throat is not food.”

“But they are healthy.”

“Mrs. Human, do I look unhealthy? No, I am in the prime of my fourth feline life and my lives improve with every new one that I get. I am a picture of health.”

“Of course Tabby, but we want to keep it like that, so eat you vitamines and you will grow to be a big strong feline.”

“I am strong and do not want to grow bigger, otherwise I would have problems getting through the cat flap. And stop changing the subject. My digestive juices tell me it is time for food, F O O D, the real thing.”

“No Tabby, you have your vitamin pellets.”

“Mrs. Human what did you have for lunch?”

“I made some spaghetti with a tomato prawn sauce.”

“Did you garnish it with vitamin pellets?”

“Definitely not, but the feline that lives next door, likes your vitamin pellets.”

“How do you know?”

“Because he arrives regularly every day and helps himself to the remaining pellets from your bowl.”

“He does what? But they are my vitamin pellets and belong to me.”

“Then I would quickly eat them Tabby, before he returns for more.”

“Ok, but afterwards it will be tuna fish first, Mrs. Human.”

“Of course Tabby, now hurry before he returns and your bowl is empty.”
