Daily Feline Prompt: Meddling Felines

Tabby 05.06 (9)

“Tabby, are you planning to make yourself comfortble on that sunbed?”

“I am thinking about it, why. Any particular reason.”

“I would like to sit there for a while.”

“How long?”

“I don’t know Tabby, perhaps an hour.”

“You mean that when I have finished my wash, which is a very importnt part of being feline, you want to sit on this chair. Are you going to wash yourself there?”

“No Tabby, I am not going to wash myself on the chair, for that I have a bathroom. I was just thinking it would be comfortable to relax on that chair, put my feet up and read a book.”

“There again you see how wrongly constructed humans are. If you were based on the feline style, you could hop onto the sunbed, curl up and sleep. there would be no problems about putting feet up. You could even make yourself comfortable in a shady place on the lawn.”

“Humans do not make themselves comfortable on the lawn, we would have grass stains on our clothes.”

“Another fault in human construction. If you had fur and a nice long rough tongue, like me, you could just lick away the grass stains and lay down where you are. No messing around with sitting on sun beds, where I want to sleep.”

“But you can sleep on one of the chairs, they are also comfortable and there is enough room.”

“True Mrs. Human, there is plenty of room on a chair. It even has a nice soft cushion. I would suggest that I will now make myself comfortable on the sunbed and you can sit on the chair.”

“But Tabby.”

“No buts Mrs. Human. I am sure you can read your book sitting on a chair.”

“But you can sleep on a chair Tabby.”

“That is not the same, it would be below my value as once being worshipped as a god in the old country. We felines do not make do with second choices, we take the first choice. However I do not want to be selfish, when I have finished sleeping on the sunbed, you may take your place here.”

“Thanks Tabby, but I would need time to clean away the cat fur remaiders before I could settle. I will make do with the chair if that is OK with you Tabby.”

“Of course it is Mrs. Human, no problem.”
