Daily Feline Prompt: Leaf versus Feline


“Tabby where are you going?”

“I must hurry Mrs. Human, I have to protect my territory. A war is beginning.”

“A war?”

“Yes, the leaf soldiers are approaching. It is the time of the year and I must be prepared. They fall from the sky and I must kill them when they arrive. Look there is one.”

“Tabby, you do not have to jump on them.”

“Of course I do, they must die, they are infiltrating my land.”

“But they are already dead when they arrive. Every year in Autumn they change their colour from green to brown and leave the trees.”

“Mrs. Human, green and brown does not exist in meow. The leaves remain as always, but they begin to attack. Imagine what would happen if they hit me on their way down. I would be injured. It is better to lie in a hidden place and when they arrive pounce. I killed three leaves this morning.”

“But they die in any case Tabby”

“That is not true, otherwise they would not be able to return again.”

“They are new leaves Tabby, not the old ones that return.”

“You mean they re-incarnate themselves and do not die. It will be a never ending fight, but we will succeed to the last whisker. Perhaps you could burn them Mrs. Human.”

“It is really not necessary Tabby. They die eventually.”

“And return again the next year – kill them until the last leaf surrenders. Look they are coming again, when will this battle end.”

“Tabby time for your tuna fish.”

“Ok, I am on my way, the leaves have surrendered.”

“That was quick.”

“Even leaves must take a rest whilst I eat my tuna fish.”
