Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Dormancy


“Come on Tabby, wakey, wakey, rise and shine.”

“What is the emergency? Has war broken out between the felines and the canines? Oh I forgot we live in a permanent state of war so nothing new.

“It is time for your daily blog Tabby.”

“I know, no problem. Today I am doing it by telepathy.”

“That sounds interesting, how does that work?”

“You take the photo and write the words and I sleep.”

“But it is your blog, you have to do the work.”

“I am working on it Mrs. Human. I am pulling the whiskers from a distance. Take my photo with your opposable thumbs. I am have a dormant pose especially for the occasion.”

“But what about pawing a few words.”

“Sleep is sleep Mrs. Human, what more is there to say. Don’t forget to mention that my brain is active even whilst dormant. I register every single action taking place, although my eyes are closed.”

“Tabby where are you going, I though you were sleeping.”

“I am, this is called feline sleep walking. We felines invented it. Roschti the feline next door is waking from his dormant phase and is approaching my territory.”

“Where, I do not see anything outside.”

“Of course not, you are human and have limited brain reflexes. Look out of the window.”

“Yes, you are right he is approaching.”

“Of course, but he will return.”

“That is true he has turned and has disappeared through his cat flap.”

“Of course you just have to have things under control, and now let me sleep. I am now entering REM stage 5 of my dormancy.”

“I though there were only 4 stages of REM.”

“That is one of the differences between humans and felines. We have a few more. When I reach REM10 it means get the tuna fish ready.”


“Sleep makes hungry Mrs. Human. And close the door when you go, there is a draft from somewhere.”

Daily Prompt: Feline Dormancy

  1. Hi Tabby, Martha here. I didn’t let Dusty read your post. I think it would hurt his feelings. He’s very sensitive for a big, black barky dog. Yesterday on our walk we saw a feline crouched under a car. Dusty wanted very badly to meet her and didn’t bark at her at all, but I kept him beside me. You never know how a feline is going to react to a canine and I didn’t want Dusty T. Dog to get his nose or eyes scratched. The feline canine war is real, I know, but some canines would really like to make a truce with the felines. I know they’re not in the majority… Your pal, Martha T. Person

      Of course Dusty is something completely different, we have space and that is always good. I am sure if Dusty lived with me I would make allowances, but once we are outside, then anything goes. Unfortunately truce does not exist in meow, even between felines. We have a reputation to maintain. Of course you know how a feline reacts to a canine, with many hisses and paw swipes and an arched back to put them in their right place.
