Daily Feline Prompt: Radiating Feline


“Mrs. Human, I am burning alive.”

“I cannot see any flames.”

“That was cataphorical. How would you like to wear a permenent fur coat in this hot weather.”

“But your fur coat belongs to you, otherwise you would not be a feline.”

“There are felines without fur coats.”

“They are a special breed, and in winter they probably have to stay indoors in the cold weather.”

“Do not change the subject. I am talking about me and not various feline freaks without fur. We had one once in the neighbourhood, I remember. They have a funny smell and lots of wrinkles in the wrong place. Thank goodness he moved away.


Although perhaps he had a zip somewber to remove his fur coat in summer.”

“I don’t think so Tabby, Felines do not have zips for removing their coats. Why don’t you just lay quietly in a shady corner, to save your energy and cool down”

“Ok, but perhaps you could remove the sun in the meanwhile. That is the cause for my discomfort. Push one of those clouds in front of it.”

“Tabby, the weather does what it wants to, and I cannot influence it. Now what are you doing with your paws?”

“Searching for the zip. There must be one somewhere. I am sure it is probably at the back of my neck.”


“Beause it is the only place on my body that I can neither reach with my tongue or my scratching claws..”

“I can assure you there is no zip at the back of your neck.”

“You humans are really superfluous sometimes.”

“I thought we were quite useful to fill your food bowls and empty your recycling dish.”

“But you cannot switch off the sun.”

  1. Dear Tabby, As you know, I am a black dog so the sun gets very hot on my fur coat. In summer I intentionally release some of the winter insulation and this frustrates my human no end because it just falls wherever. Now she’s decided that if she does this thing she calls “brush” it will be better for everyone. I honestly don’t enjoy that much, especially when she brushes around my tail. I think she could just leave it alone until it’s all fallen out, but no. She has to molest my coat. Oh well, she’s my human so she must know best. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I have never been “brushed” by my human, although the vet has brushed me but said she did not find anything, although no-one told me what they were looking for. My litter sister Nera (who is now in the etnernal corn chambers) had this brushing thing, but she was not happy and Mrs. Human said it was a danger to do it. Why bother? Humans think they know best, and who are we to destroy their confidence. I find a good scratch in the right place and perhaps a few bites between the claws does the job quite well.

  2. If we could switch the sun on and off, we could really do some interesting things in this creaky old world. Right now, I would LOVE to turn on the sun and see if we could make the roses bloom! Even a day lily would be a nice touch.

    • As I write this on my mobile telephone I am sitting on a bench in front of the local castle. The sun ☀️ shining , there is a wonderful view of the alps and a pleasant breeze. What could be better?
