Daily Feline Prompt: Feline elevation

Tabby on her ladder

I like to sleep in high places, they elevate me to my rightful status in feline life, after all felines first. I can look down upon everything. What is more important the others have to look up to me. Unfortunately the construction of a human spoils the effect as they have to look down on me because they have two legs. However, I maintain my importance by ignoring them most of the time proving that four legs are better than two. It was then I decided to persuade Mrs Human to organise steps to enable me to reach the higher places of my meowdom.

The photo was just to make her happy. In the meanwhile I have discovered that a simple jump enables me to reach the top of the cupboard, where I not only look down on the humans, but my entire meowdom. I can keep my eye on human movements, and register the filling of the food bowl with tuna fish and the emptying of my recycling tray.

We felines are the perfection of elevation. It lies in the whiskers and the paws.

    • Meow, yes, very interesting, your feline is almost as intelligent as I am. I have not yet chosen which tap would be suitable, we have many. Mrs. Human is not so keen and tells me that two bowls of fresh water should be enough. I will have to do something about that.

    • You must divide the years between 9 lives she told me. One of the feline advantages over humans. As soon as there agility begins to rust, felines swop the life they have for a new one. She is now on the fourth life.

  1. Dear Tabby, I also like to leap into the air. I can leap two meters, straight up into the air. Canines don’t jump to land on anything; we jump to see OVER things. My “little” sister, Bear, likes to climb on things so she can guard the house from a higher elevation, though. Maybe there is a feline in her lineage somewhere. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I don’t just leap, it is a calculated graceful movement, with exact precision applied with a four point landing on the paws, a feline ballet. It is a natural talent that I possess. I don’t want to show off, but many call it poetry in motion.
