Feline RDP Saturday: Feline Egg Search

Tabby

“Tabby are you looking for something.”

“Of course Mrs. Human. It is Cat-easter and time to search for some eggs.”

“Oh, if I had known, I would have hidden some for you, but I did not know that felines eat eggs.”

“Of course we do not eat eggs, we are carnivores and not eggivores. It is not the egg that is important, but the manufacturer.”

“The manufacturer?”

“Known as bird, Mrs. Human. Where there are eggs there are birds: a very tasty part of the feline diat.”

“But Easter, or even Cat-easter, is a time to celebrate and take it easy and forgive.”

“That is what I mean Mrs. Human. I could celebrate by having a bird meal and afterwards take it easy in the digestive process. Forgive does not exist in meow. So where there are eggs there are birds.”

“That must be a strange feline festival. We celebrate a new begin and felines eat birds.”

“Why not. We are helping to maintain the balance of nature. If we did not eat birds, there would be far too many of them flying around. There is a purpose in everything. Enjoy your eggs at Easter Mrs. Human, and if you find some freshly laid, just let me know. There is never an egg without a bird. As we say it is fine to put all your eggs in one basket, but better to find who put them there.”

“Another example of feline logic it seems.”

“You said something Mrs. Human?”

Feline RDP Saturday: Feline Coast

Tabby

Of course I have a coast. I call it the border which separates my territory from the others. Who needs water? I just spray my own supply on the bordering grass to establish my rights. All other felines are aware where my territory begins and ends, they can smell it. The cat next door, known as Roschti, has had his eyes of my part of the landscape for many years, but I put my paw down to warn him. Now and again he takes a walk through to get to his own territory. I gave him a special whisker permission to cross through my area to his territory in return for keeping any other felines out of my place. Sometimes even we felines must reach agreements. I also prevent feline intrusion on Roschti’s territory. We reached a special paw swiping agreement.

As a feline you can never be too careful. Sometimes there might be a territorial dispute with sharpened claws and hisses, but I have my own cat flap for a quick escape. Fight back? You must be mad. I only have 5 lives left from my 9 and am not prepared to risk more just for a coastal dispute.

Roschti 27.05.2017

Here you can see Roschti guarding his territory, he likes to make it comfortable. As his territory borders on mine, it serves both our purposes and I would not like to cross with Roschti, he can get quit annoyed.

Feline RDP Saturday: Feline Kite

Tabby

“And what do you want to write today Tabby?”

“Mrs. Human, forget it. What am I supposed to write about a kite. I do not have opposable thumbs, so there is no possibility that I will ever fly a kite. As far the bird is concerned, I have a a strong suspicion that if I ever met one it would grip me with its claws and fly off to the nest and I would be breakfast, dinner and tea for the baby kites for a week.”

“Then you will not be writing today Tabby.”

“No Mrs. Human, I will remain where I am on the porch enjoying the warmth of the stones and wait until you prepare my food and forget the kites. In the meanwhile I will have a sleep, just wake me when it is time to eat.”

Feline RDP Saturday: Tabus catus

Tabby

Ego sum felis catus
I am not antiquorum
My ancestors built Rome in a day
But disappeared in the forum
We felines were here
when humans were still in trees
So why speak latin
A language freeze
Meow is much easier,
Although it varies in tongue
The Persians have to many verbs
and the Siamese almost none
I am multi cattus
I understand them all
I prefer not to speak it
I have a Tabby accent drawl
Mrs. Human understands me
Especially when I scratch
Claws are so useful
To emphasise a match
So do it ad hoc
And add some catus diem
It is all done in bono fide
Quid pro quo cattus verbatim

Quod Erat Demonstrandum – Tabus Catus

Feline RDP Saturday: Feline Walk

Tabby

Since my kitten days I was always on my feet
Unless I was sleeping or relaxing on a seat
We felines have no taxis and cannot ride a bike
And so we have no choice but always have to hike
And so I wander constantly, I am a feline train
Although sometimes I stay indoors if there arrives the rain
But we felines never complain, just one paw after the other
That’s the way I learned it from my very furry mother
She said just keep moving to where you want to go
but she forgot to tell me where this was, so how was I to know
It seems mum’s work was having kittens all the time
She was far too busy feeding us and ensuring it would rhyme
And so I just take a walk to mark my territory borders
Keeping out the other cats and avoid any disorders
Otherwise walking is hard, and is also very tiring
And so I take a rest in bed because I am now perspiring

Feline RDP Saturday: Feline Iridescence

Tabby

Look into my eyes and tell me what you see
They reflect the light of rainbows, iridescently
We felines are unique, our eyes see everywhere
I might be a little short sighted and so I have to stare
If a fly sits on my nose, he looks so very blurred
But  mouse in a far off field can be seen and even heard
And when the midnight hour arrives and I am following a trail
I see every grass blade no matter if it’s pale
My eyes see it all, at night they even grow
We do not need the daylight to show us where to go
With our super sense of smell and eyes that see it all
I can stare for hours and hours  at a field and have a ball
And if you shine a light, my eyes reflect the rays
We felines are so perfect, we have an iridescent gaze

Feline RDP Saturday: Feline Air

Tabby

There is nothing better than air outside
But five minutes is enough, it was a long ride
My whiskers are shivering my paws are cold
So open the window, I am not feeling bold
How long must I wait, my tail will freeze
It is really not warm, and there is a cold breeze
I can open the cat flap? but that is work
We gods deserve better, Human are you berserk?
