Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Toothbrush


“Time for a territorial inspection Mrs. Human, how do I look?”

“The same as always Tabby.”

“Do you think I should clean my teeth?”

“No, felines do not clean their teeth.”

“But humans are always cleaning their teeth.”

“But you have healthy vitamin pellets to eat Tabby, and they keep your teeth nice and clean.”

“You mean the ones that are good for me.”

“Yes Tabby.”

“If they are so good, why don’t you chew on them as well. If I had opposable thumbs I would defintely clean my teeth, but our breath always smells sweet and perfumed.”

“Not quite Tabby, but I don’t really get close enough to smell it.”

“I could give you a smell.”

“No Tabby, don’t bother, I am sure it smells as feline breath should smell.”

“Meaning full of the perfumes of nature.”

“Someting like that, although sometimes it gets a little too natural according to where you had the last lick.”

“The problem with humans is they are not agile enough. I can wash myself everywhere.”

“So can humans, but we need the help of a shower and not the tongue.”

“Another human imperfection.

You see, we can do it all by ourselves. That is the reason why we always smell so clean and fresh. Are you sure you don’t want a whiff of my perfume Mrs. Human, it is very exclusive.”

“I am sure it is Tabby, but keep it for yourself, otherwise it will not longer be so exclusive.”

  1. Dear Tabby, Every morning out human gives us what she calls a “toothbrush” and we love it! She said last night that my teeth look good for an old dog. I don’t know what this “old dog” thing is, but all my life I have only eaten vitamin enriched dry dog kibble so I guess it works. My human says animals in nature eat bones and that helps keep their teeth nice and strong and the kibbles are like bones. I don’t understand “like” used in this way but what can you do? Humans are humans. We had a nice walk last night and I was a good boy again. Another canine was free in a yard with its person. It barked and took some steps toward me, but I only barked once and kept moving. My human petted me and petted me and said, “Good Dusty T. You’re really getting it.” My nemesis, Ace, was in his yard and I didn’t bark at him, either. Perhaps this barking thing should be saved for moments of real danger. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Every morning a human just checks to see if I am still around, but I doin’t get a toothbrush, I have my wonderful vitamin pellets. You can call them kibble, but I just call them “yuck”. I much pefer a nice dish of mushy juicy tuna fish. It might not be healthy for my teeth, but healthy for my good humour. Mrs. Human always removes the bones of chicken because she says I could choke on them. Feline teeth are not made for bone crushing, we are a gentle animal unless someone invades our territory.
      I take a walk often during the day, but rarely see other felines. We like to avoid each other as it could get complicated. I must now go, there is a crash bang outside and a fight between something called fireworks and a storm. Have to seek refuge beneath a human bed where I cannot be seen, it is safer.

  2. Dear Human,

    You are lucky that Tabby does not feel the need to include you in her daily bath. I am sure I am far from the only human to have woken up in the morning covered in cat spit with skin that feels distinctly sand-papered. At least when the dogs decide to re-cleanse me (they don’t like the smell of bath products — insufficiently earthy, I think ), they don’t also clear off the top layer of cells from my skin. Although, come to think about it, you can pay a Spa a lot of money to do exactly the same thing, so maybe it’s not such a bad idea after all.

      Luckily Tabby keeps her licks to herself. Now and again she might lick the floor according to what was there before she arrived. She does not lick everyone and has a sniff first of all to see if it is worth it. She is very sensitive as she says you never know where a human has been and some licks are just not so appetising. A good lick is when ice cream arrives.Tabby enjoys licking it off my fingers.
