Daily Feline Prompt: The Feline Dash


The decision in a feline life are so difficult. Shall I make a dash for it or not. It is not cold outside, so I will not freeze. On the other paw the skies are grey: got you there didn’t I? No, I am not completely colour blind, as far as I am concerned I am not colour blind at all, although Mrs. Human finds I am missing the wonderful reds and orange of the sunset. How I am supposed to miss them, when I do not see them. Sunsets are sunsets and the sun always goes down. That is the time for mouse hunting and earth sniffing.

I am wandering from the theme. The main problem with weather is that it might rain. I know it is only water and I love water, but it has to lie on the ground. Water I can lap with my tongue and absorb. The water that is falling from the sky is problem water. It hits me on the head in heavy drops, and collects in my fur. No feline is a happy feline with wet fur. It clings to the body, and my wonderful perfumed fur begins to smell. And now the question is will it rain or not. According to my whiskers there is a certain humidity in the air, but my paws tell me that the humidity will pass and I will be safe. I think everything will be ok for a short excursion into the unknown. My whiskers are now beginning to curl and curling whiskers are a sure sign that the  it will not rain.

Now it is time to go, I will depart one paw after the other. No, just a moment. I cannot even depend on my whiskers, I distintly felt a drop of rain on my head. I think I will stay at home and postpone my journey until later. There might even be sunshine. I will watch the wall, the wall always knows how the weather is. If the wall is wet it will rain – yes feline logic is always the best.

    • For Tabby no sun means out to the light of the moon where there are discoveries to be made and things to watch that only she can see. Tabby spends most of the day hiding from the sun.


  1. Dear Tabby, My human is very considerate of us. In winter, if the sun is shining, we go out for a hike. Now it’s summer and if the sky is cloudy and looks like rain, we go for a hike. I’m not sure how this works, but I think it has to do with the temperature on our paws and I think she’s thinking of Bear and me. I hope you have a very nice day with a cool breeze and that you get all the information you need from the wall. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I do not go out with Mrs. Human for walks. I decide when to go and I go. I have my own private entrance and exit. Mrs. Human only wants to go to uninteresting places and she stays on those places called paths. I prefer to feel the real substance of nature beneath my paws, to sink into the odours surrounding me. Mrs. Human just says “yuck” if she treads on recycling matter – no appreciation for the meaning of life as such. My body has its own air conditioning system, something felines developed in the olden days. My problem is not so much the weather at the moment, but humans known as builders that keep invading my territory. They even tamper with walls – no respect.

  2. Reminds me of a favorite book, “A Door into Summer”. Our cats are always looking for that door. They get miffed when the back door opens on the same weather as the front.
