Daily Feline Prompt: At night we all look alike

Tabby 04.06 (3)

Uniform? I am me, unique, exclusive. This is not a uniform, it is a designer dress. There are no two felines with the same pattern: even the MacDonalds “M” on our forehead varies, according to the location of the various coloured fur particles, although mum said I did resemble my dad, but this is doubtful.

It was a dark night, the moon was not even shining, although she said it did. She loved to add a bit of romance to the story. I do not really think there was very much romance involved. She was black in colour, looked quite a bit like my litter sister Nera (may she be happy catching mice in the eternal corn chambers) and according to mum I look liked dad, but who knows. There was no paw holding, or meowing to the shade of the moon, I think dad had a sniff, meowed “move over” and in a few minutes they parted, not without mum giving him a paw swipe on the nose before he left. She had no time, Nera’s dad was waiting on the next roof tile.

And so is feline life – we might all look alike, but not really. We all have our little differences. Although I often wonder where the reddish hue on my fur comes from. Oh well, who knows, it was a dark night and mum is colour blind in any case. And Nera’s dad was nothing better. I think she moved onto the next tile afterwards.┬áThere were four of us in the litter – so who knows what happened on that dark night, all felines look alike.

  1. Dear Tabby, My sister Mindy is the only one of us who wears a “uniform” because she is a purebred dog and they breed them to look a certain way. But under her uniform, I can tell you, there’s a completely unique canine. She doesn’t do a single interesting thing, but everyone loves her. Maybe that’s why? Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      We felines tend to have different uniforms, but mine is naturally the best. Nera had a very big uniform, but was carry snails and other strange objects in her fur. Perhaps they were something special. I am also unique, but no-one seems to believe it. They all think we tabby cats look alike. I have a black stripe from the top to bottom of my tail, not everyone has that.
