Daily Feline Prompt: Sunny Feline


“No Mrs. Human, I do not want to go outside, I will get a sun stroke.”

“Tabby you have been sleeping all day inside, that is not healthy.”

“It is healthy for a feline. We need our sleep to recover from the engergy we use searching for sleeping places. You cannot be so cruel as to send me out in the burning sun, my wiskers will shrivel and I have still not found the zip on my coat yet. I am sure the opening is at the back of my neck which is impossible to reach with teeth, tongue or claws. If I went outside I would be doomed, exposed to the hot sun beating down.”

“Do not exaggerate Tabby, it is now cooler. It rained all night.”

“I know, and that was another attempt to remove another life. It was not just rain, it was bombs being dropped everywhere: noise and flasing lights. I had to find somewhere indoors to sleep.”

“But it was just a storm and after an hour it went away.”

“An hour? That was an hour of my fifth life. And now you expect me to allow this weather torture to continue by going out in the sun.”

“You can shelter beneath a tree in the shade.”

“I am in constant shade indoors on this comfortable chair and do not need to go anywhere.”

“But the sun has now disappeared behind a cloud.”

“That is a trick, as soon as I go outside it will appear again. You cannot trust the sun. It is all a scheme arranged between the clouds and the sun. And now leave me to sleep. I might venture outside in the evening when the sun switches itself off. Mrs. Human keep an eye on the sun and let me know when it goes away. I suppose in a way I like the sunny weather, I can at last get around to getting enough sleep.”

  1. Dear Tabby, Like you, my sisters and I prefer to stay inside when it is very hot and sunny outside. Yesterday my little sister, Bear, got into one of our human’s flower beds because it was cool, green and shady there. Luckily for her, she didn’t dig a hole. Our human has a strange attachment to some of the spaces in our garden and can be pretty scary if those places are molested. I just stay away from them. It’s the safest bet. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      We felines do not really dig holes to bury things, we dig holes to use the earth to cover things that we do not want to be seen. Humans can get very iffy about stuff they plant in the garden, but as I walk light footed the only problem are the lotus flowers that spring up where I walk, although Mrs. Human does not see them. She saw my hairball this morning and had the impudence to wash it away, after all the creativity I invested in its assembly – no appreciation for feline works of art. I am sure if you would decorate your human’s garden with a few bones it would add to the overall aesthetic impression.
