Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Cacophony


“Tabby what is all that noise?”

“Mrs. Human, I demand entrance and again the window is closed.”

“But you do not have to hiss and meow as is the end of the world was nigh.”

“The end of my world is nigh Mrs. Human. I do not have opposable thumbs and have to jump over a chasm to reach the door which must be open at all times for my entrance.”

“Yes well it is not very warm outside, there is a wind blowing, and if the window stays open it can get very cold.”

“I do not see a problem. Of course, if you were equipped with fur it would be more sensible and you would not feel the cold.”

“It was only the primitive humans that had fur a couple of million years ago, but we evolved to the humans we are today, and no longer need the fur.”

“If you had fur you would be insulated against the cold air. Whilst you were still sitting in the trees we were being worshipped as gods in the old country. Are you insinuating that we felines are primitive.”

“Of course not Tabby, but you cannot compare a feline to a human.”

“Do not flatter yourself Mrs. Human. I would not want to be compared to a human. You might have opposable thumbs, but cannot scratch behind your ear with your leg.”

“I have hands to do that Tabby, my legs are for walking.”

“But you only have two, another faulty design.”

“In that case Tabby, you can walk around to the other side of your home on your four legs and  walk in.”

“And you could open the window and let me in, which would be the easiest solution to the problem. By the way I just noticed that the neighbours cat marked his territory in the flower bed in your garden.”

“What! I must clear it away.”

And now she has opened the window and I can enter. You have to apply these tricks with humans to make them co-operate.

  1. Dear Tabby, You fooled her. Thumbs are NOT brains, I see. My “little” sister has taken your advice and is attempting telepathic communication with the feline at the vet’s office. So far she’s only reached me. It’s for the best. All she can say is, “I come in peace.” What is she? An alien? I’m trying to explain to her that felines are highly intelligent and she can just “speak” normally to the feline, but… OH WELL! The young… Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

    • Meow Dusty
      Perhaps she is using the wrong vocabulary as “peace” gets lost in translation with meow. I would advise to purchase “A dog’s book of meow phrases for feline communication” against a price of two tins of tuna fish. I accept all credit cards and you can also use paycat. Conversations with felines must be tackled from a special angle. You must first of all bow down and wait for the feline to grant permission to rise. It is forbidden to look the feline in the eye as it would be interpreted as a dominance wish, and no-one tells a feline what to do. Perhaps she should learn “permission to speak” in meow, to break the ice.

    • Tabby also uses her cat flap, but she only has one and we have a sind way ou (open window) on the other side. So if she is on that side she waits if the window is shut for us to open it. Sometimes her patience desertsvher and she bothers to walk around to the cat flap on the other side.

  2. My cat has a flap that she knows very well how to use. Sometimes she gets the ‘dumbs’ and pretends she has lost that ability. Then, it depends on which one of us has the patience to wait for the other one to open it.

    • That is when Tabby sits and stares in front of the window with pleading eyes next to the cat flap waiting for you to open the window, although she is perfectly capable of walking through the cat flap. I know the situation very well. They do have their little habits and we are silly enough to fall for their tricks.
