Daily Feline Prompt: Feline box of yarns


“Mrs. Human, I’m bored.”

“I found your box of toys today, perhaps you can play with them.”

“Toys? I never had toys.”

“Of course you did when you were a kitten. You would love to play with a ball of yarn, all felines like playing with yarn.”

“Mrs. Human, I am not “all felines” I am Tabby. Do not forget, I was once worshipped as a god in the olden days and the yarn always got mixed up with my claws. ”

“How could I forget it Tabby, you are always reminding me.”

“Show me the stuff you found, perhaps there is something there to relive my boredom.”

Cat Toys

“Look my mouse family are all there. I remember I had such fun pawing them all over my home. the fluffy one in the middle was especially sly. It would never lay down, but allways stood on it tail.”

“That was because it had a weight behind the tail to fix it in an upright position.”

“No Mrs. Human, you are wrong. Mice do not have weights in their bodies, it was a characteristic of that mouse to always stand upright.”

“But Tabby it is not a real mouse, just a toy.”

“I told you Mrs. Human, I do not have toys. They are the real thing. And look, my big roly ball is back and still has the little bell inside. So out of the way Mrs. Human, I have places to go and things to do.”

“Be careful Tabby. Look your mouse has now fallen into your water bowl.”

“I will rescue it Mrs. Human, otherwise it will drown.”

“No Tabby, it will just get wet. It is not a living thing. Tabby where are you going with that ball.?”

“I am pushing it next to my bed. If I wake up in the night I can play with it.”

“No Tabby, not in the night it will make noise and I will not be able to sleep.”

“Not my problem, Mrs. Human. but you can arrange the mice in my bed, so that I will not feel so lonely if I wake. I like that collar with the stars and moon on it, you can fit it around my neck and take the old collar away. Just imaging how Roschti the cat next door will be jealous of my new collar.”

“But Tabby, you have now spread the toys all over your home.”

“They are not toys Mrs. Human, necessities of daily life.”
