Daily Feline Prompt: Feline on Wheels

Tabby going for a ride

“That was fun Mrs. Human, I no longer need to wear my paws out with walking, you can now push me to where I want to go.”

“Tabby, come out of that trolley. I want to fill it with books to take down to the cellar.”

“But I do not want to go to the cellar Mrs. Human and I cannot eat books. You can push me to my food bowl in the kitchen.”

“Tabby, this is not a new transport system for felines. This is mine.”

“Mrs. Human from the day when I adopted you your possessions were no longer yours, but automatically became my property.”

“No way Tabby. I am not pushing you everywhere. You have four legs that can take you where you want to go.”

“Mrs. Human, I am saving my energy. When you park the trolley in the kitchen you can leave it there. I will call you when I wish to go further. Perhaps you could wheel me into a nice shady place in the garden afterwards.”

“Tabby you have enough energy to go places on your own. Imagine how the other felines would laugh at you when they see you being pushed everywhere.”

“Wrong Mrs. Human, the feline intelligence does not work that way. If we see another feline that has less exhausting work to do, it is when our “copycat” programme comes into action. If I have a human transport system on wheels, then the other felines in the area will also want one. Mrs. Human you could make a  fortune selling this system to other humans owned by felines. I would even be prepared to share the profits. I would pay you with a handful of hard vitamin pellets for each feline carriage that you sell and I would keep the three tins of tuna fish for me. That is a fair deal.”

“No Tabby, that is not a fair deal. What am I supposed to do with vitamin pellets?”

“Typical human, you expect me to eat them, but you would not touch them.”

“Tabby this is another one of those conversations that lead nowhere.”

“I agree Mrs. Human, so now you can push me to my food bowl, to make sure it leads somewhere.”

  1. Dear Tabby, I think you would miss the feel of grass on your feet, the sensation of water from your bowl and the excitement you get from a feline prowl. You might want to reconsider having Mrs. Human push you around everywhere. Yr. Pal. Martha

      I did tell Mrs. Human to plant grass in my home on wheels ti make it more comfortable and to install running water, which I could operate with a paw touch, but she said it would be too expensive and very complicated. I think she was just finding excuses. Mrs. Human has already stopped pushing me around and at the moment she is sleeping. She finds it it too much stress for her. I was hoping for a furlined cushion in my new home on wheels, but she said there is no more room and I could sleep like and other feline. The insults -I am not any other feline, I am Tabby the one that was worshipped as a god in the old country in a previous life. Mrs. Human says I should not dwell in the past so much – typical human, no feelings.

  2. Well Tabby I am surprised that a feline of your considerable intelligence would not know that exercise, and I mean you getting exercise not your human getting exercise pushing you in the trolley, is necessary for good health and long life.

    • Have still 5 lives left. Traveling this way conserves them and saves paw exhaustion. If only Mrs. Human would not take so many rests in between. Humans can be lazy. “Come on Mrs. Human we have places to go and things to see.”

  3. That is so funny. We had to take the dogs and go somewhere for a couple of hours this afternoon while the exterminators were exterminating. We took the Scotties on their FIRST joint excursion to PetSmart. Rather than try to make them walk around the aisles, we put each one in a trolley and walked them around the store. Bonnie whimpered every time we pass another dog. I could hear their mental conversation.
    “Hey, Gibbs!”
    “Yo, Bonnie!”
    “What’s this place? Why are we here? What are they doing to us? Is this going to hurt?”
    “I smell DOGS. I think I smell cats, too.”
    “Gibbs! Maybe we should bark. You wanna bark?”
    “Naw, Bonnie. I’m going to hunker down and worry.”

    • They would enjoy It more if they could walk around on their own. If you train them they would help to choose the food they prefer. One could sit in the trolley and give the directions with a bark and the other would push with the front paws. You would wait at the cash desk to pay. Might be you would have more treats in the selection, but the dogs would be happy and satisfied.
