Daily Prompt: Feline Inhabiting

Tabby 24.08 (3)

Just to get things straight, felines do not just inhabit, that would be a waste of purring time, we move in and take over. There is nothing as demoralising as moving into a space especially prepared for you. There are some humans that are of the opinion that a soft cushion in a corner and a bowl of food is all that it needs for a happy feline. Felines are never happy, it does not exist in meow, we always need that extra care and attention and we dictate the organisation.

A cushion? that I do not laugh in the meowing sense of the word of course. One cushion in each room is the minimum to expect and in higher places. We felines generally look down on everything else. A food bowl is naturally important, but positioned in a clean place on its own. We do not like to be watched when eating. Of course not any food bowl, there are various designs now available. I noticed on my pawpad there is a food bowl with Versace design now availble, I am now working on that. Mrs. Human finds it too expensive, so I am persuading her that nothing is too expensive for the feline that chose her as personal slave. She does not yet agree.

Of course I chose Mrs. Human from the various applications I received when I was searching for appropriate living quarters. My mum said choose carefully, and make sure your chosen human has tuna fish in the kitchen. This was the driving force behind my choice, but mum did not say you neeed a can opener and human with opposable thumbs to open the tins. She also forgot to say that some humans live by the motto “hard vitamin pellets are good for you”, I am still working on that one.

Otherwise I am basically satisifed. She moves out of my way when I need a clear path, I have my own private entrance and exit, although there are times when I wish for more attention in opening windows for other places.

As said, I do not inhabit, I own. It is cats first and don’t forget it.
