Daily Feline Prompt: Partner for Tabby

Tabby

“So, now I have my partner again.”

“Your have a partner Tabby? I thought felines did not do partners.”

“Of course we do Mrs Human, I have my chair again. My favourite place to relax in the later hours of the afternoon. Your overgrown kitten has now left and I can move into my rightful place for a relaxing sleep.”

“Tabby it is not your chair, it belongs to my “overgrown kitten” as you call him and this is his room. You can be thankful that he allows you to use the room when he is not here.”

“Wrong Mrs. Human, all rooms belong to me. Humans are only allowed to use them with my permission. Your overgrown kitten ignores my right of possession, but now I am here, it is all mine. I have spread my scent from my paws onto the cushion to remind him when he returns.”

“The problem being Tabby, that we humans do not have such a delicate sense of smell as felines, and the “overgrown kitten” will probably not even notice that you have decided to take possession of the chair.”

“But this chair is my partner, it accompanies me on my afternoon sleeps.”

“Perhaps you should find another place, outside in the garden. You can spread your delicate scent on the grass outside.”

“It’s not the same Mrs. Human. Outside is everyone’s territory and we must defend it with claw fights and hisses. Possessing a chair is much easier.”

“But my overgrown kitten will return in an hour.”

“No problem Mrs. Human, I will then make your bed my partner for a few hours Changing the surroundings is very healthy, it helps to spread my scent everywhere. ¬†What are you doing Mrs. Human?”

“I am changing the linen on the bed.”

“You cannot do that, it will disturb my possessive scents.”

“Sorry Tabby, but even we inferior idiots called humans, like to have clean linen on the bed that doesn’t smell of feline or is full of cat fur.”

“But that is my trade mark.”

“And mine is freshly washed and ironed bed linen”

“Strange habits humans have.”
