Feline RDP Tuesday: Feline Serendipity


“Tabby are you stuck on the top of that wall.”

“Of course no Mrs. Human, I can leave any time I want to. I just feel good sitting on top of my world. And my wall enjoys every moment of it.”

“But it cannot be comfortable sitting on such hard stone. A nice cushioned bed would be much better.”

“A good idea Mrs. Human. It would certainly improve it. When are you fitting the cushions on the wall. And there are two walls, do not forget.”

“Tabby, I have no intention of putting cushions on the walls for you. If it is uncomfortable then you can sit on a chair or in one of your beds.”

“That is not the same Mrs. Human. Up here I belong. I have everything under control. If I had a padded seat, even a throne, it would be much better. All the other felines are now jealous of my rise in the world. They are below, although I have to be careful. I noticed the feline next door sleeking around the walls. He even sprayed one of the bricks. My wall was really annoyed. It told him that the wall was all mine. I am the only feline that understands the problems of walls.”

“Tabby, walls are just, well, walls. They do not have feelings.”

“Of course they do Mrs. Human. Do not insult a wall. If you get crushed by a wall one day, you will know why. I noticed there are some plants in my wall, which might look quite good, but of no use.”

“They are of use to me Tabby. I can cook with them because they are herbs.”

“So is catmint Mrs. Human. Just a bed of catmint would be serendipity for me. I could roll in it, sniff the aroma and arrive in another time and dimension.”

“No Tabby. I tried that once and all the felines in the neighbourhood were in my garden rolling in it. The plant only survived a day.”

“But this time it will be different. It will be easier for you to chase them away.”

“Tabby I have better things to do than watch your wall and a cat mint plant.”

“You see how selfish humans can be. Never spare a thought for a poor defenceless feline like myself. I was once worshipped as a god you know.”

“That was your ancestors Tabby, and they are long gone. Just enjoy the serendipitous life you lead at the moment and concentrate on your wall.”

Feline RDP Tuesday: Rugged Feline


I fooled them all with my cunning and dare
Now I’m the queen of the castle , I have found a new lair
From here I see everything and have it all in grip
Mrs. Human is still worried, she is sure that I will slip
We felines are so sure and steady even when we fall
Just turn as you go down, arrive on four paws next to the wall
I have been up and down today, have tried all various positions
Stretching, curled up sitting with style, according to my conditions
I love this new wall and it likes me, we assimilate so well
I tell the wall I am climbing up and it remains so parallel
Looking down is  showing me that I can do it with style
Now I have done it and shown them all, if only I could smile
So kittens if your human says a raised bed in the garden
Be sure to mark it as our own and do not give a pardon
Just take decisions in your paws and make sure it is plug-ged
You will get your just rewards just stay determined and rugged

Feline RDP Tuesday: Feline Contrast


Even we felines need a change of scenery
Laying in same place can get so boring
I have decided to take a break from monotony
There are chairs everywhere, you just have to choose the right place at the right time
Today I decided on a leather surrounding with a soft cashmere blanket
Mrs. Human says it is not cashmere, but it feels like it
I can sink into the folds of warmth and enjoy
The days of sleeping outside on a chair are now slowly disappearing
I am now glad I did not find the zip to remove my fur coat in summer
Yes the days are getting colder, no more lying on cooler stones in the evening outside
I think I will now change my position and have a relaxation on Mrs. Human’s bed
She is not using it at the moment
It is only a few small steps to the bathroom  opposite
That is my refuge during the day where the floor is warm laying on a feline sized carpet
Yes, it is a hard life being a feline, we are continuously having to search for somewhere new to sleep
It is the story of my nine lives, we felines are adventurous, always searching for improvements.
Tomorrow I have planned a sleep in another room, but as long as it has a view I am happy – and of course a bowl of food in the corner.

Feline RDP Tuesday: Feline Migration


I migrated to the next door territory, but it did not smell like mine
And then I pawed my way to a field, but I found it full of swine
Mrs. Human said stay where you are, it is the best foundation
But I want to go places and see other things, I need a long vacation
I packed my cat nipcz and tins of tuna hunger to overcome
In a few minutes had to return I had no opposable thumb
The tuna fish stayed at home, I decided to catch mice on the way
They ran and hid in their homes underground and so I had to stay
Migration is not for felines like us, we like to stay at home
The humans also have their use, I decided not to roam
And now I am sleeping on a nice warm bed, the outdoor life not for me
Mrs. Human is giving me a tummy tickle, better than climbing a tree
Life away  can be very hard and gives me tiresome paws
I must be recognised as the queen that I am, and have my daily applause
