Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Interests


The life of a feline is full of stress. We hardly have time for interests. From the moment I awake in the morning I am exhausted from my sleep and I have to sleep a further few hours to recover from my sleep stress. There is no rest for a feline, we are continuously busy. Of course I have interests, mainly in wild life. I could watch the birds for hours if I had the time, but even watching birds is hard work and I often fall asleep whilst cocentrating. Waiting for a mouse to appear can also be very exhausting. I wait for hours with a paw in the entrance to its tunnel, but eventually I fall asleep and then the mouse escapes.

Another interest I have is food. Not the hard vitamin pellets that you have to chew because the chewing actions tire my mouth muscles and I have to take an after dinner sleep. Eating tuna fish is more relaxing. The fish slides down with hardly any vigorous chewing motions, helped by the accompanying juices. I still take an after dinner sleep for the digestion.

I have a territory to guard from invaders which is also very tiring. I have my friends, such as walls and bricks that I must entertain with lively conversations. Staring at walls can be very exhausting, but nothing that a few hours sleep cannot cure. Yes, life is action packed for a feline and we are glad to be able to turn in three circles until we find the most comfortable position, for a sleep of course. We are hard workers and the most exhausting part of life is finding a new place to sleep. Our time is limited. The day has only 24 hours and when you fulfil your sleeping quota of 23 hours, there is only one hour left to pack all the other parts of the feline work day into.

  1. Dear Tabby, Mindy is afraid you haven’t gotten her telepathic sleep messages. I told her you probably don’t speak American Canine but some dialect of Swiss Feline. She said that was absurd. Telepathic messages transcend all language. Anyway, she was communicating with you about the similarities in your stressful sleeping life and hers. I know that twice every evening our human makes her go outside to pee, but as far as I can tell, there is no other stress in Mindy’s life except when I block her access to the sofa. But we can’t tell about others and their feelings. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

    • Meow Dusty
      We felines tend to communicate in meow, but all have the barking bilingual ability. Felines are lucky as we have an indoor recycling tray which we allow our humans to look after, to give them a fulfilment in their lives. I often pee outside, but choose my own places and time. I have two cushions and three chairs at my disposal for sleeping unless I decide to stay in the great outdoors in the shade of a tree on a cushion of grass. Yes the life of a feline is hard, but we overcome our stress.

  2. Our canines get irritated if we don’t get off the sofas so they can sleep in comfort. I think 11:30 is their goal time, but we often exceed that and they get increasingly annoyed. There really IS room for all of them on the long sofa. Maybe they need more tuna.

    • Our problem is that Tabby always seems to get their first and how can you convince a poor little feline that she is in the way. And Tabby does not share, it does not exist in meow apparently.
