Feline RDP Friday: Feline Tool

Tabby

I carry my tools
wherever I go
They are attached to my paws
And that you must know
Your human ignores you?
She thinks you’re a bore?
Just put out your tool
And scratch on her door
Some call them claws
Keep them pointed and sharp
If you scrape them on wood
they sound like a harp
They are multi purpose and versatile
between my toes they are attached
Very useful for irritations
you have a flea, then you can scratch
Beware of the vet
He likes to cut them short
Luckily they grow again
Keeping them sharp is a feline sport
We felines would be lost
Without our claws to leave our mark
If you scratch them on some metal
you can even make a spark

Tabby

“Tabby what are you dashing around for?”

“I am not dashing around Mrs. Human, just exercising my paws, tail, whiskers, ears and nose, as well as my claws.”

“But you do not have to combine it with leaping from the bed and trying to climb the wall.”

“Of course I do Mrs. Human, it is all part of the feline action plan: be prepared at all times.”

“But what do you have to be prepared for?”

“For the case that it might happen.”

“What might happen?”

“No idea, but it is better to be prepare it case it does.”

“That does not sound very logial Tabby.”

“It doesm’t have to be logical, just feline.”

“Oh I see. How are you going to fit eating and sleeping into such a busy routine.”

“No problem.When I am exhausted I will collapse for a sleep and in between eat. And now out of my way, I need a straight path to the chair, from where I can jump down to the floor and climb the wall. Move, I am coming, I am having a cyclonic hour.”

“Oh I see.”

Feline RDP Friday: Feline Laundry

Laundry

“This is overwhelming Mrs. Human. Piles of laundry and folded and I now have the agony of choice.”

“What did you meow Tabby? There is no choice. They are the clean towls and linen and will be put in the cupboard until I need them.”

“What a waste Mrs. Human.”

“Not at all, so find somewhere else to relax, but not on my laundry Tabby .”

“But it is so inviting. What a wonderful place to have a feline sleep.”

“No Tabby, your feline sleeps take hours and afterwards my clean washing is full of cat fur.”

“But you can brush it off if it disturbs you, although I find it a good finishing touch.”

“Tabby you have cushions to lay on, and blankets. This is my washing.”

“It would be something completely different and it smells almost perfect. It just needs a touch of feline aroma.”

“Tabby we have enough feline aroma here. I do not need it on my clean linen.”

“OK, no problem.”

“Tabby what are you doing in the cupboard.”

“Just preparing a bed for a sleep.”

“But I wanted to put the linen in the cupboard.”

“No problem, I will move over and leave you enough space.”*

Feline RDP Friday: Feline Spring

Tabby

The seasons are changing
I feel it in my paws
Time to go hunting
I need something in my jaws
The birds and bees
they are humming
Mice are tasty
their tiny feet running
Oh what a lovely time
of the year
Meat to eat,
I have no fear
If it breathes
and is not still
I know what to do,
move in for the kill
I love the spring
with the smells in the air
Fresh meat and a choice
on the menu to share

Feline RDP Friday: Feline Book

Tabby

I do not need a book,
I can look outside
There are things creeping in the garden
Very carefully eyed
Why should I read about it,
I prefer the action
Books are full of words,
outside I have satisfaction
On page one there is a worm,
followed by the slugs
Some insects fly with wings
and there are so many bugs
I can take a walk in my book
and paw amongst the grass
turning leaves for the next page
No need for magnifying glass
I never need a book mark
To find the part I saw
I see in the dark better than light
I really do not need more

Feline RDP Friday: Hopeful Feline

Tabby

Hope does not exist in meow
We do not need it, we always know how
We influence our humans with telepathic waves
Never forget that they are our chosen slaves
If I want tuna fish, I refuse to chew the rest
Let us be frank, vitamin pellets are not the best
If I want to go out, the window must be open
I send a signal to my human, the command is never broken
So why should we hope, it happens all the same
Hope is for humans, for felines not part of the game

Feline RDP Friday: Feline Avalanche

Tabby in snow

I was known as Tabby of the Antarctic. I would fight the snows bravely when they came. Undaunted I would paw my frozen paws into the masses. I was a victim of the avalanches from the trees. First of all the leaf soldiers arrived beating down on my head in Autumn. They soon realised that I was not to be overcome by the leaves and then they sent the snow masses. It would tumble down from the branches, but I fought my way relentlessly through the tons of snow. Yes the life of a feline can be dangerous , but I braved the snow masses and won the battle.
