“I should really so something different with my lives Mrs. Human. Just laying around, sleeping and eating is not the non plus ultra of a feline life.”
“That is true Tabby, perhaps you should take more exercise, a nice long walk. It would be very good for you.”
“You mean like walking That can be very exhausting. It could kill me.”
“Of course it is Tabby, but afterwards you feel much better and probably can sleep better. And it never did any harm.”
“But I have never had sleeping problems. All I have to do is curl up in a suitable place, and sleep. I do not have to exert myself with walks. Just imagine if I fall asleep whilst on a walk in a strange place. I should never wander too far from my territory. I mean I should embark on a new project. Perhaps I could write my life story, but that could get a little complicated.”
“That would be a good idea Tabby.”
“The problem is which life shall I write about. The first one ended after my first meeting with a dog, the second one was when you shut me in a cupboard and forgot I was there. The third one I prefer not to talk about, it involved a vet. And the fourth was my first meeting with Roschti, the neighbour’s cat.
I have a brilliant idea Mrs. Human.”
“Good I can’t wait to hear about it.”
“There is a small problem.”
“Yes I have to sleep it over first of all before I make a decision. You have to think over the novelties in your lives, no good rushing. You can easily make a mistake and lose another life on the way. In the meanwhile give me a bowl of tuna fish. Food always helps to develop the initiative. As the famous feline Audrey Paws Hepburn said “Let’s face it, a nice bowl of tuna fish does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me”.
“You think so?”
“It is an established fact, tuna fish makes happy felines. Even humans like to see that their felines are well fed and content.”
“I thought “happy” did not exist in meow.”
“It depends on my mood.”
