Daily Feline Prompt: Grainy Feline


Mrs. Human said I must be quick today, because she has to go to the hairdresser. What does that have to do with being quick? I must first of all compose my masterpiece about grainy. What does she know about walking through sandy areas and having grains of sand wedged between the claws. It needs a very special manicure. I have to examine every claw carefully and rid it of irritations and that takes time. That is why I prefer walking on earth or even nice flat ground. Some time ago Mrs. Human had her front garden refurbished with large stones and pebbles in between.

I was quite happy about the large stones as when it rained the water would collect and it was a welcome drink in between. However, she did not ask my permision to fill up the spaces with small stones. These are not so pleasant for walking purposes and were more than grainy. Do not forget, my size in proportion to these stones causes them to be something like the Rocky Mountains and we felines do not wear shoes.

“OK Mrs. Human, I can hear you, you want to go to the hairdresser” and now she is getting all iffy and impatient. I think it is better to take a nice comfortable sleep for the next few hours when she returns looking like a sphinx cat, not quite, but with shorter fur than usual.

  1. Dear Tabby, Sorry for my long silence. We were gone to visit my cousins by friendship in Colorado Springs, then we came home and my human got carried away doing something in the back room. And then all these other humans — her human pack, I guess — have come to visit. Once more you’ve shown me another side of how humans are inexplicable. Yesterday we took our walk and for some reason my human took a bag with her and stopped every once in a while to take something out of the bag and lay it down. I have NO idea what was going on with her, but it was all right with me. We were together outside and that’s all that matters. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Humans are strange creatures, although they also have thei secret missions to accomplish as we felines and canines. We do not tell humans everything. My human also gets carried away with something called the computer, which is really not paw friendly, but without it I would probably not be able to communicate. I am sure you deposit hints and scents when you take your walk, but it is no business of the human. Perhaps your human is also depositing things on her walk and wishes to keep it a big secret. She may have a mission to accomplish. If possible have a sniff at her bag and you may discover what it is all about. You see another difference in cats and dogs, we only have cousins in dislike, rare in friendship.
