The Daily Feline Prompt: The Flavoured Feline


“Today I would like something completely different for my dinner Mrs. Human.”

“That is ideal Tabby. I was at the pet store today and bought something new for your dinner.”

“But I am not a pet Mrs. Human, you are my pet, actually slave.”

“Yes Tabby, but the human word for animals that we humans care for is “pet”.”

“Pet sounds so degrading, as if we are to be pampered and spoilt and it is we felines that spoil and pamper our chosen human.”

“Oh, I must have misunderstood something that got lost in translation from meow to human.”

“You did, but to continue. What is this new astonishing food that you have discovered in the feline food emporium?”

“Look, here they are.”

“Vitamin pellets? That is pure junk food. You have been filling my bowl with them since I took over.”

“But these are different Tabby. They have a completely new and revolutionary flavour.”

“Tell me, they look the same as the usual pellets, and you know we felines always eat with our eyes as well as everything else.”

“I always buy you tuna flavoured, but these are beef flavoured, a special offer.”

“Mrs. Human I have been living on special offers since I took over, and no matter what the name of the flavour is, they all taste the same. I have been eating fish, and now I eat cow. Why not do the real thing once so that I can see what these animals taste like in their natural state.”

“But I would have to cook the meat and it would not be as hygenic as your usual food.”

“I am not fussy Mrs. Human and would prefer it uncooked. Hygene does not exist in meow. In the meanwhile, just open a tin of tuna fish applying your opposable thumbs, I am not fussy and keep you new spectacular vitamin pellet flavours for Roschti, the feline next door, he will eat anything. His tastes are not as refined as mine.”
