Daily Feline Prompt: Dignified Feline


“Tabby, could you perhaps just lift your front paws a little more.”

“Do what Mrs. Human?  My paws are comfortable in the position they have at the moment.”

“It is not a question of comfort, but of dignity. They are looking very awkward as they form a closed circle over your tummy.”

“Mrs. Human, have you ever seen yourself when you are sleeping after lunch.”

“Of course not.”

“Yes exactly, well I have when I accompany you on your after dinner sleep. Dignity does not exist. Your have your arms strentched out in all directions. Imagine the problems I have searching for a comfortable corner to rest my weary body on your  bed with arms and legs in undignified positions.”

“Then you can move and sleep on one of your many favourite places.”

“No, that does not suit me. After human dinner I prefer a human bed. I have more room. And now I am feeling very comfortable with support on my back from your flower box. At least the workmen have pity on me and have now placed a nice soft comfortable cloth on the ground, radiating warmth.”

“That is only temperary Tabby. It is there to protect the tiles if objects fall on them.”

“You mean I am laying in a danger zone. I could get injured by a falling brick or stone, or even be punctured by a screw or nail. Mrs. Human you could take more care of me.”

“It is not so dangerous Tabby and we now have the week-end so nothing will happen. With your connections to the wall I am sure the wall will warn and protect you if anything might happen.”

“Don’t be silly Mrs. Human, Walls do not hold conversations and they only protect themselves. They can be very selfish.”

“But you constantly stare at walls and you said it is all done by telepathy.”

“But only telepathic creatures can hold conversastions with walls Mrs. Human.”

“Oh, I see that explains it.”

“And now I will rest my head on my paws if that meets with your approval. We felines know how to sleep with dignity, unlike other inhabitants of this planet.”

  1. If you have cats — or dogs — there IS no dignity. You cannot BE dignified when your beasts completely defy your authority, not to mention steal your breakfast and use your computer to write their own blogs. Dignify? Here? There? Where?

    • Tabby tells me in the meow dictionary dignity has a completely different meaning and is strictly a feline characteristic. Felines invented dignity, but they own sort of dignity. If there is tuna fish eat until you are finished. If you sleep, then sleep and ignore everything around you and if you eat a mouse then always leave the tail and the bit at the end. I never worked that one out, but there must be a meaning somewhere.

  2. Dear Tabby, My “little” sister, Bear, can look quite stately and dignified but the truth is she is a goofball and if you ever see her run around the yard you’ll know what I mean. I never laugh where she can see me because I don’t want to hurt her feelings. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I know what you mean. My litter sister Nera was the biggest of us all so she gave the orders. I think It was really just fluff, she was the first to run if a dog barked (no offense meant, today being day of the dog). Admittedly I was the second to run, but this was an exception as my motto is Tabby first.

  3. There is a scene in the movie ‘Singing in the Rain’ where the parallels of dignity come into play. The furbabies in my house have a totally different view than the one in the reality of the twoleggers.
