Daily Feline Prompt: Loopy Tabby


I should really do something with my life, go places and see things. It cannot be the meaning of a feline existence to only sleep and eat and look for somewhere to sleep.

On the other paw all the other felines I know do not do anything else. If we meet we hiss and glare and exchange paw swipes and sometimes discuss the best sleeping position and places.  Some are even something completely different and come closer for a sniff, but they cannot be trusted. It is not normal for a feline to come close and meow something like “let us be friends”. They are the suspicious ones to avoid, to ignore and show that you are the boss.

So now back to my feline loop. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and what am I doing. Laying next to some sort of plant that Mrs. Human waters. If it was catnip I could understand her motivations, but a green grass lookalike that she tends to with love and sprinkles on something she calls salad. It doesn’t even smell good and I would not dare to eat it. She should be passing her time tending to my needs and not to her own – typical selfish humans, they never spare a thought for a helpless feline like me.

So I will now move, stretch and yes, lay on the lawn. The sun has shifted, it is now beating down upon me and I need shade. I must break out and do something completely different. Just wake me in an hour or so when it is time for my next meal. After my meal I will definitely do something different, devestating and never before seen. I will try the chair on the right, it has a new cushion and looks ideal for a sleep. Routine is a destroyer of the body and mind, we must always be prepared to change our sleeping places.

  1. Dear Tabby, Things around here have gotten very uncomfortable. All we want to do is sleep on the cool floor in the day time. Yesterday our human took us for a walk in the evening, and I saw a dog I hadn’t seen before so naturally I had to bark. My human got so angry. I just don’t know what she wants. Maybe you sometimes have these problems, too, not with barking, of course, but trying to penetrate the inscrutable mind of your human. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

    Hi Tabby, Martha here. Dusty doesn’t realize he was barking at a little dog that was on a leash held by a kid trying to ride a scooter and walk his dog at the same time. It could have been disastrous for the little boy if his dog had taken off (and he did). I had to hold Dusty back. He takes his job too seriously sometimes. Yr. Pal, Martha

      We felines are perhaps a little more thrifty with our meows. We like to keep them to ourself. Meows are only for humans to keep them happy to show that the feline that owns them are being treated well. You dogs are so active. If I see another feline, I do a cautious sniff and then sit and stare for a few minutes. The other feline also sits and stares, not wanting to be the first to pounce, although to be quite honest, I wait for Mrs. Human to arrive and chase the other feline away – I mean humans must be good for something. If Mrs. Human does not arrive, I am left on my own to sort it out. It could be that we begin to hiss or perhaps growl, although when the growling starts, I realise I have other busines to attend to in my home and leave the other feline to get on with it on his own.
      Your human was being protective of another human it seems, although you were doing the right thing in my feline eyes. What is the purpose of a canine life when it can no longer bark – although I must add I too do not favour canine barks, they tend to hurt my ear drums.
