Daily Feline Prompt: Buffing with a feline

Tabby 30.05 (2)

“I will be back Mrs. Human, just taking a breath of fresh air.”

“But keep to the paths Tabby. Yesterday your fur was full of grass from your walk through the meadow”

“No problem Mrs. Human, a good scratch clears it all away.”

“Yes and afterwards it is in the appartment.”

“You have a cleaning monster that sucks it all up.”

“I have a better idea Tabby. When you arrive home I could run the cleaning monster over your fur. It would remove all the bits and pieces.”

“No way, it would probably remove my fur as well.”

“It would keep your fur free from various insects.”

“I do not have insects, although ants seem to like me and they have a few good stories to tell.  Do not forget, we felines are prefect and have our own cleaning system. I have never seen a human that can scratch behind her right ear with her right foot. And there are other places that we like to lick clean which a mere human could not ………”

“OK, Tabby, I do not need instructions on the cleaning habits of a feline, go for a walk and keep out of mischief.”

“Mischief does not exist in meow, it is all a matter of occupational hazards and who can run faster than the others. See you later, I have an appointment with a wall that needs buffing.”

“Needs what?”

“I have to use this stupid word somewhere in my daily prompt.”

  1. That was a wonderful story as it seems like you have a wonderful relationship with your cats. Instead of buffing your cat, you should try shaving them. I think that they look so cute when they get that lion’s hair cut.

    • Tabby’s litter sister (now in the eternal corn chambers) was big, and fat, although she insisted it was fluff. We had to give up with buffing. She visited the vet in summer for a short back and sides and returned looking like a lion, but it was better for all of us. The snails would stick to her fur and there were other creatures which found it a wonderful place in summer.


  2. Dear Tabby, My human would like to use that monster on me, too. Once I let her. It wasn’t so bad but she seems to think that horrible brush does a better job buffing my fur. 😉 Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I do self-buffing, but Mrs. Human is convinced that she can do it better, like most humans. She has no idea. She buffs in all the wrong places. A good scratch with the back leg and a bite or two in the parts that itch is all it needs. I mean how can she know where it itches, although I think she does not really want to find out. Humans are funny like that sometimes.

  3. Hello, my fellow feline, my name is Hero–a handsome American short-haired orange Tabby. (You may gaze upon my likeness here: https://domesticminister.com/about/ )
    Please forgive my human for her outburst of laughter over your closing statement of needing to buff a wall simply because you needed to use the word. Clearly, there are walls that need to be buffed up; why else would we rub against them? Sincerely, Hero
