Daily Feline Prompt: Timely Felines

“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.”

  1. Dear Tabby, It’s the first rule of canine life to guard your food bowl from strangers, especially if there is food in it — including vitamin pellets. The best way to guard it is to eat what’s in it. I don’t even share with my sisters. I pass this stragedy on to you in case you need it. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Share does not exist in meow, but you cannot trust any feline. I should know I am a feline. They just help themself, no respect. Our way of guarding it is to take revenge. When the feline next door, Roschti, is not at home, I will sneak over and see what he has to offer, although I fear it is only vitamin pellets. He seems to be addicted to them, but his ancestry were certainly not gods like mine.

  2. Tabby, you look especially lovely in today’s photo. Those vitamin pellets might have something to do with it. I would keep an eye on the feline next door. We don’t want him to look as wonderful as you!
