Daily Feline Prompt: Mushrooms and a cat


I now have my own private entrance to my territory. I told Mrs. Human that this could not go on, I deserved more attention and better living conditions. I do not know where she gets her ideas. At last she has organised a suitable path for me.

It was not easy to persuade her, but she designed the exit according to my plans. It is very paw friendly.

“Where are you going Tabby?”

“Exploring my territory Mrs. Human, there are places to see.”

I thought I would visit my friend, the wall, we have many interesting conversation. Humans have destroyed him, removed him, they said he was a victim of the mushrooms. I noticed them growing out of a crack in the wall, but the wall was feeling ok. It then began to rain. I only like water that comes from the ground, but water falling on my head is an omen, because the sky might also fall on my head.

The wall also did not like the rain. It prefers the dry weather. I was staring at the wall and the wall stared back and then I saw the mushroom growing between the ground and the wall. It continued to rain and more mushrooms began to grow. The wall stood its ground but I noticed it had begun to crumble at the edges. It was then that the men arrived and killed the wall. The wall groaned as it fell and they gave it no chance to defend itself.

I wanted to help, but what can a mere feline do, my wall had been killed and has now been buried together with the mushrooms.

I am now very careful about washing myself regularly. Mushrooms are dangerous. If they can kill a wall, they can kill anything. Mrs. Human eats mushrooms, shall I warn her. No, she is there to protect me and can look after herself.

  1. Toadstools are pretty lethal, so it is VERY wise for Tabby to avoid them completely. I crush them whenever I see them lest the dogs take a bite and die before I can get them help. The woman who wrote “Hunting The Wild Mushroom” died of mushroom poisoning — yes, it’s a true story.

    • We have lethal mushrooms growing here, but luckily not where we live and cats being carnivores, it is not such a danger. I can imagine more for dogs. The most lethal in Switzerland is the so-called death cap (had to look for the english name in the computer). It looks almost like a normal mushroom but has a few differences which often only an expert can see and are extremely poisonous.

  2. Dear Tabby, Where I live it’s usually very dry so mushrooms don’t grow, but last summer there were a LOT of them! Mostly in Mindy’s yard. Our human kept picking them up because they looked like Mindy’s recycling matter, but when she did, they just POOF went to dust. And then there were MORE! Very strange. I’m sorry to hear about your wall. It’s very hard to lose a friend. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

    If it is not eatable I am not interested, but there are strange things growing in the yard. We felines always bury our recycled stuff to hide the traces that we are there. We like to remain incognito, you never know who is watching. My fluffy sister Nera used to sit on slugs and Mrs Human had to remove them from her fur with scissors.
