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  lose 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.”

  1. Dear Tabby, My sister, Mindy, who is kind of elderly and somewhat crippled in her back end, sometimes falls down the steps leading to the front door. She always looks up and smiles, gets up and tries again. I think she is a very noble canine for never giving up and putting a smile on her face. I, however, have never fallen and I suppose it is because gravity, which seems like a whimsical thing, has no interest in me. I can jump very, very high, 2 meters, which is quite impressive. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I have also never fallen, as gravity is just something that humans have. I have four paws and they are always ready to make a perfect landing. Once my litter sister Nera (may she be happy in the eternal corn chambers) had an accident. It was not her fault, but the fault of the wooden climbing apparatus we have. We were playing dangerous games (said Mrs. Human) and it fell on her leg. She was not happy because she had to go to the dreaded vet. She got a new leg covering the old leg, but only for a month. The old leg pieced itself together again. She was not as brave as your Mindy because she never smiled, but growled and hissed, but we felines do not have smile muscles like dogs. We do not smile so much, we are very serious.

    • No problem, I can even turn in the air when I am falling, it is all part on my aero dynamic construction. My tail is always up , unless I have to suit it to the atmospheric conditions.
