Daily Feline Prompt: Snack Feline


“Mrs. Human, my bowl is empty. I thought I had left a morsel of tuna fish for later.”

“There was a morsel, but it was so small that it dried up in the heat and I had to throw it away.”

“Throw it away? But it was my rescue from starvation. I left it for later in the case that I would have hunger pains.”

“I thought you were finished with the bowl, and there was only half a bite left.”

“Half a bite is the difference between death by starvation and losing another one of my precious lives.”

“Don’t exaggerate Tabby, you still have a full bowl of vitamin pellets.”

“Vitamin pellets, that is really no comparison. I am talking about food, juice and taste bud enjoyment. I need a snack and not a fully blown up meal of vitamin pellets that I have to force down my throat and drink a bowl of water afterwards to send them on their way. I want my tuna fish snack.”

“No, Tabby, too much tuna fish is not good for you. You eat so much that you leave your vitamin pellets which are more nutritional.”

“Nutritional definitely does not exist in meow, although I think somewhere in the archives of meow it is a synonym for filleted mouse or marinated bird which I never get here in any case.”

“Humans do not filet mice or marinate birds.”

“Ok, then I will have to make do eating the mouse raw, although I might have to cough up a fur ball aftrwards. Same with bird, it will definitely produce a feather ball.”

“Ok Tabby, point taken. How would it be when I roast a chicken for me and Mr. Human for dinner and give you some pieces on your plate.”

“Mrs. Human, I do not do “pieces”, as you describe it. I am a feline, once worshipped as a god and my ancestors were not burnt at the stake or drowned in ponds with their witches to be reincarnated and eat “pieces” of chicken. Try me with a wing, or a leg – fileted of course. The bones might cause me to choke. And to save you work, you do not have to spice the chicken, I prefer the taste pure with no added flavours.”

“Oh I am glad Tabby, it would save me time not having to spice it.”

“No problem Mrs. Human, I am always willing to assist then I can. But don’t forget to debone it.”

“Of course not Tabby, we cannot have you coughing up bone-balls.”

“You are learning Mrs. Human. It is a long process, but you will get there eventually. Do not forget to wake me when the chicken is ready.”

  1. Our dogs do not save anything … or more to the point, we don’t let them save anything. It just invites uninvited 6-legged guests to share the meal. Gibbs likes to share little piece of treat under the sofa cushions, but Bonnie finds them and eats them. No saving around here! Sorry about your bit of tuna. Human moms don’t understand that they only get better when they are left to curl in the sun.

    • Tabby always has a bowl of food, the dreaded vitamin pellets, but in reality she does eat them. She is very sly. She waits for me to top them up in the morning and then she dives in and eats. It seems they are better tasting fresh from the plastic bag, although I think it has something to do with the lure they put in the pellets, it is more active when fresh. She eats the top layer and leaves the rest. The rest also gets eaten whe she realises there will be no more fresh until she eats the rest. You always have to be one step ahead of these pets.


  2. Dear Tabby, My human says you need to watch a human film, “Never Cry Wolf.” There you will learn that you must eat the bones as well. Don’t ask me why, but my human says it is necessary. I’m sure your human says many incomprehensible things as well. Sigh. We canines like the bones, as you know. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog.

      We felines are basically gourmet and we might spend time licking on a bone, but not actually eat one. I never really pay attention to what my human says and as you say it is very incomprehensible. She should pay attention to what I say but sometimes she has problems due to my overpowering intelligence quota, although she does cook a good chicken according to my instrutions.
