Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Penchant


“Mrs. Human, let me in, open the window.”

“Tabby you can walk to the other side of the appartment, I am really busy with something else at the moment.”

“I am also busy Mrs. Human, there is no time to spare, I am on my way.”

“Tabby, you are annoying me. I was sitting comfortably at my computer and now I had to open the window. Just a moment, where are you going?”

“Outside of course.”

“But you just begged to come in. I opened the window, you leapt into the room and now you are going out again.”

“Mrs. Human, I am not a canine (sorry Dusty), “beg” does not exist in meow. It was a command, which you obeyed due to my training programme for human beginners. You have now got top marks for window operations. Now I am outside again, so you can again open the window.”

“Tabby, I am not your servant.”

“I know Mrs. Human, you have not yet reached that level. You remain in the slave status. You should be happy, that is promotion.”

“You mean there is something less than a slave.”

“Of course, that was the serf level. Remember I used to give you a scratch and a hiss when giving orders. That is no longer necessary, you are making progress. Just a little more attention when I am leaving my realm and entering my outside territory would be appreciated.”

“And then I will progress from slave to servant?”

“Not yet, we do not want to rush things. Is my tuna fish ready?”

“Yes of course Tabby, according to your wishes.”

“Good. You may now close the window. I have decided to take a walk to the other side of my home through my outside territory. Just be ready in case you will have to open the window.”

“But you have a cat flap on the other side and can come and go as you please.”

“Mrs. Human, it is all a matter of training and the walk to the other side keeps you fit. See how I look after your health.”

“Of course Tabby, I am on my way.”

  1. Dear Tabby, I went to the vet today to get shots and a checkup. The shots didn’t hurt, the vet’s assistant scratched my ears the whole time, and the vet was very nice to me. They got a new feline at the vet — a small black feline — my human said, “Dusty T. Cat”. I wanted to meet it but it ran away. The vet looked at my teeth and said they were good for an old dog like me. I won’t have to go back for a long time now which makes me happy, even though I don’t mind them. They are nice to me and give me treats. That’s my news. As for canines begging, some do. None of us do. We have arrived at a perfect balance with our human and we know when we get treats. For a while my “little” sister, Bear, thought she could get more treats by asking to go out when she didn’t need to, but she’s given that up. It doesn’t work, apparently. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      As a member of the superior feline race, we never give in to the vet. It begins when the cage appears. I then dive under the nearest bed and my humans try all sorts of tricks to entice me from my safe place. It is when a broom is pushed under the bed, I am forced to flee. If I am caught the try to put me into the cage. I then spread all four legs to make it more difficult. After some time i am forced into the cage and the lid is closed. They have won, but not without a fight to the bitter end. That is the way to put the humans in their place.
