Feline RDP Thursday: Feline Preen


I am having a preen
put up the screen
A private moment for me
I do not want an audience
Respect my privacy
There are actions that you should not see
A little scratch here
And perhaps a bite there
It keeps fleas and ticks away
So leave me alone
To scratch on the bone
You really do not have to stay
Be careful where you tread
although I am resting on your bed
A tic might fall to the floor
Do not step on it
It could get quite messy
Leave me alone, close the door
And now I am finished
Just a quick lick
To make sure I am very clean
When we felines are nit picking
And indulge in our fur licking
We must concentrate all of the time
I need no distractions
And no over reactions
When removing all of the grime

Feline RDP Thursday: Feline Nurture


“Mrs. Human, according to my nurturing instincts, it would be time for my evening meal. You are late.”

“Tabby according to my timetable it will be in half an hour.”

“Half an hour? I could die of hunger in half an hour.”

“I don’t  think so Tabby. You look healthy enough to me. In the meanwhile you could go outside and play with your feline friends.”

“Mrs. Human the word “friend” does not exist in meow and neither does “play”. We only have the maintenance of the feline race in mind, and you didn’t even ask me about that, although nurturing screaming kittens would not be my thing. So fill my bowl with food and save my remaining lives. And don’t forget to garnish it.”

“You want a garnish?”

“Of course, you eat with the eyes. Just perhaps a pinch of tarragon leaves,  or a sprig of catmint and a side dish of whipped cream.”

“Tabby we are talking about a normal meal and not a 5 star menu.”

“And I am talking about me, the reason that I employed you as my personal slave. In the olden days we were worshipped as gods, and here I can be lucky that I do not starve to death. And don’t forget to serve it at room temperature. Taking from the refrigerator is not ideal, it can give a shock to the feline system.”

“Of course Tabby, shall I warm the food bowl.”

“That will not be necessary, we do not want to overdo it. And hurry, I am feeling very weak.”

Feline RDP Thursday: Drifting Feline

Tabby sleeping between the plants

I am very good at drifting
Because I close my eyes
Floating on a feline cloud
is my favourite exercise
I do not have to paw my way
Sleep just carries me on
Where I am going I do not know
When I wake I am in my salon
I always keep one eye prepared
to keep my territory sure
You never know if a cat might invade
And I must keep an eye on the door

Feline RDP Thursday: Feline Fame


I decided this photo leaves a lasting impression on all. Here I am in a serious mood, but of course I am always serious. I am seated on leather illustrating my importance. What more can I meow? I am unique, fame is my middle name. If you wish for a paw print, write to my Manager Mrs. Human. I have no time for answering all the many fan letters I receive.
