Daily Feline Prompt: Ginger Cat

Roschti 11.09.2017

“No Mrs. Human, I do not want to talk about Roschti. He smells different and his only aim in his 9 lives is to move in on my territory and I was here first.”

“But Tabby, he is a feline the same as you are and I am sure he feels lonely.”

“Of course he is lonely, he longs for an extension to his territory. Just look at him, he is sizing everything up and mentally working out where the best places are. I don’t like the way he is looking at my wall. I am sure he is already having conversations with the wall. And he is not the same as me. I am the best, the most intelligent and have the Macdonalds “M” on my forehead. He looks like he fell into a pot of orange paint.”

“But Tabby I am sure he only wants to be friends.”

“Friends with my wall and my food bowl and my recycling tray. Before you know it he will move in and take over.”

“No problem Tabby, we have enough room for Roschti. He could sleep on the cushion next to yours.”

“But that is my cushion.”

“You only need one cushion to sleep.”

“I need two in case I change my mind and want to use the other cushion. I need a free choice of sleeping place otherwise I will be the victim of feline clawstrophobia: When I wake at night shivering and shaking wondering where I am.”

“Tabby do not exaggerate, you sleep at least 23 hours a day and I have never noticed that you have sleepless days or nights. I am sure you and Roschti could share your territories.”

“Share does not exist in meow, only possess, I will have to sharpen my claws ready for the great feline showdown.”

“You mean you are going to fight Roschti.”

“Just keep him out of my territory and there will be no fight.”

“Where are you going?”

“I am going to spray my wall as a sign of my possession before Roschti has ideas.”

  1. Dear Tabby, Another difference between felines and canines. If another canine is OUTSIDE my territory and I think he might mean us harm, I will bark and show my teeth. If he entered my territory and I see he means no harm, I will play with him. Our human met a. nice canine yesterday named Charlie. I could tell he was a nice canine from the way she smelled after she met him. We canines have different scents that reflect out basic natures. I have only met one canine with whom I could not be friends and that was my nemesis, Joan. Still, I always utter a clear warning when I see an unknown canine on our walks. You cannot be too careful. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Beware of all felines is the motto, never trust a feline, but I have my methods of dealing with it. Plan A is Mrs. Human. Her duty is to protect me and ensure that I lead a comfortable life with no strain or worry. If another feline is approaching and hissing, Mrs. Human must chase it away whilst I am watching in the background, also hissing. Plan B is when Mrs. Human is absent for some reason. It is then that I enter the cat flap breaking all speed records. I then sit on the other side of the flap and hiss at the feline outside, showing how brave I am. We do not bother with scents, all feline scents are meaningless except for my own. Friend does not exist in meow.

      • You are wrong about cats not bothering with scent, Tabby … Just because humans are unable to smell the scent of felines (all those pheromones) that’s not saying you do not bother with it. I have had two cats from 2006 till February and the tom was all about scents. The females a little less so, but they still liked to sniff.
