Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Rivulet


“Mrs. Human, help. I cannot find the zip or buttons to my fur coat.”

“That is because you do not have them.

“But humans are always removing their fur when it is hot, and as a superior species, we felines should also have a possibility to remove our fur.”

“No Tabby, it doesn’t work like that. We humans have opposable thumbs and can manipulate zips and buttons. If you had thumbs you could not use them, because you have unoppossable paws.”

“And if we had opposable paws humans would have no purpose in their lives. They could not empty recycling trays or fill our food bowls, not to mention using the tin opener. But the sun is beating down, there are rivulets of sweat forming in the lower parts of my fur. If I could remove my fur coat it would be so much more comfortable.”

“And when the sun goes away you would freeze.”

“Then I could put my fur coat on again.”

“Felines are not made like humans. Humans have to wear coats in Winter to keep warm and felines already have their coat. And even in Summer felines can avoid the hot weather by taking shelter under a tree or plants in the garden. If it is too hot, you can go inside to cool down.”

“But I might miss something. Perhaps another feline might invade my territory and I must always be here to protect it.”

“Tabby, if you are sheltering from the sun the other felines will also be keeping away from the sun.”

“Ok, then I will now sleep and you can take your fur off to cool down and keep an eye on my territory Mrs. Human. You can earn your keep. And if an invader arrives, chase him away. .

“Of course Tabby, I am your obedient slave.

    • Did you hear Mrs. Human, a fan at once. Make sure it is the best quality, preferably in a colour that matches my fur and with remote control. I could then just press a paw on the switch and would not need opposable thumbs.

  1. Dear Tabby,

    Although i can understand that your fur can get a bit too warm, those buttons and zippers are always snagging or falling off. Find a nice, shady patch and sleep. I’m sure you don’t want to find yourself trying to sew your buttons back on!

  2. Somethings you just can’t do like taking your fur coat off. I mean imagine all the fur coats lying about in the summer and what if you got mixed up you might end up ginger or black. I’ve nothing against ginger or black im black myself but I wouldn’t like to go about wearing someone else’s fur coat.😸😸🐾🐾🐾

    • No problem, we felines have a limited range of colours, and ginger is not one of them. Everything looks brown or black to us. We do it all by smell and I definitely recognize my own smell.
