Daily Feline Prompt: Tabby Adrift

Tabby

“Tabby, I have been searching for you everywhere, I though you had disappeared.”

“Disappeared? Life is no longer secure here. They are coming to get me.”

“What happened?”

“There I was minding my own business, talking to a wall and wondering where to take my next sleep. Wanting to solve life’s little problems. I was not doing any harm, just minding my own business and counting the lives I still have. Suddenly there was noise, and real noise. Not the brumming of a human voice, or the sweet sounds of a birdsong or mouse squeak, no it was something comletely different. I was sure my next five lives were slowly beginning to crumble. I was already thinking whether I would prefer the rainbow bridge or the eternal corn chambers. I suspect it was the new human breed known as “builders” with one of their mencing tools.”

“Now that sounds very serious Tabby.”

“It was.”

“What did you decide.”

“Don’t be offended Mrs. Human, but that rainbow bridge is not my thing. First of all I am colour blind, and secondly it would mean spending my time waiting for you to arrive. Nera and Fluffy are already in the eternal corn chambers, collecting mice for Bastet, so that would be my decision. However, I am still here as you can see.”

“Yes, I noticed you disappeared with a speed of a Formula 1 racing car.”

“Not quite, I prefer to be compared with a cheetah. So I eventually decided there is no place like home, my home and I returned as fast as I could and found a safe place.”

“On your bed?”

“Forget it, that is far too exposed. I spent the best part of the afternoon beneath the settee in the corner waiting for the noise to go away. Again I survived, and fought the evil noise with all my┬ácombined whiskers and claws. It was difficult and now I am exhausted. I must recover from the oppression of the builders. They are a worst enemy than the leaf soldiers that appear every year at the time you call Autumn.”
