Daily Feline Prompt: Descent of a Feline


“Be careful Tabby.”

“Er, Mrs. Human I am feline, you know, the most perfect creatures. We were designed to achieve everything. Have you ever seen a feline that falls and is laying on its back afterwards. Have you ever had to call for an ambulance because I happened ┬álose a paw on the way.”

“But you have been lucky Tabby.”

“It has nothing to do with luck. If a human survives it calls it luck. We felines do not need luck, because we can do it. We are first and the best at everything. We overcome the law of gravity, it is unnecessary for felines. We only invented gravity to give the humans something to think about.”

” I thought gravity was not an invention, it just existed.”

“There you have it again. You see how much we felines are underestimated. It was Sir Isaac Paws Newton that decided to call it gravity, after a tin of tuna fish fell on his head when reaching for it in his human’s cupboard.”

“Oh, I must have misunderstood the human science laws. But Tabby you once missed a step when descending your feline ladder.”

“I did not, I did that on purpose just to show how clever I was to reach the last step with no problems. I just wanted to make it look more difficult as Roschti, the feline next door was watching. He afterwards spread the word how clever I am and my feline status increased by 10 points in the neighbourhood. I am the best, the most perfect.”

“Tabby, do not overdo it with your self praise, the higher they climb the steeper they fall.”

“That might pertain to humans, but we felines are too perfect.”

“Then be careful when you walk across the grid outside. There is a steep fall next to it.”

“That is to enhance the suspense Mrs. Human. It makes the humans go “oooh” and “aaah” when I succeed in crossing it to arrive at the other side perfectly.”

“But I notice you sometimes descend and afterwards ascend again.”

“That is only to show how versatile I am. Mrs. Human I am just too perfect.”

“Yes Tabby, I must admit. You surprise me every day with your talents.”

“Mrs. Human are you laughing.”

“Of course not Tabby.”
