Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Identity


“Mrs. Human, Roschti the feline next door, has been sniffing around in my territory again. You should really pay more attention.”

“But I have not seen him in your territory.”

“Seeing him has nothing to do with it, you can smell him. If you would kneel on the ground and put your nose to the earth, you would realise he had been invading.”

“Sorry Tabby, but I am not sniffing around for other cats. They deposit all sorts of objects in the earth.”

“Are you implying that we cats are messies? We are very careful with our recycled material and always cover it. It serves as manure for the garden. Even Roschti covers his deposits, although they have another meaning. He is here to take over.”

“I don’t think so Tabby, he has his own home next door.”

“But he is planning on extending his territory. Look over there in the garden, there is a suspicious pile of dirt. If you dig it over I am sure you will find memories of Roschti.”

“But that is your favourite place for leaving deposits.”

“All the more reason to make a careful analysis and separate Roschti’s material from mine. You can leave mine where it is, it establishes my rights to the territory. ┬áRemove Roschti’s waste to his garden next door, but make sure you cover it up, to prevent mistaken identity.”

“Tabby I am not walking around the garden with a shovel sorting recycled feline remains. It is really not important. Roschti is now sleeping at home.”

“And dreaming of his invasion when he takes over my land.”

“No-one is taking over any land Tabby, and now that Winter is approaching you no longer spend so much time outside.”

“All the more reason for you to defend my property.”

“Where are you going?”

“I will take a sleep. I cannot bear to watch you on your hands and knees digging over my private spaces.”
