Daily Prompt: Feline Rebuild


“Tabby, what are you looking at in my garden.”

“Just a small correction Mrs. Human, it is our, no my garden and I think there should be a few alterations made. It used to be grass and now it is stones. This is not very feline friendly. How am I supposed to bury my recycling material and perform the perfect formation of a hair ball with stones as a basis.”

“But it is much easier to care for and there are less weeds growing.”

“Does it occur to you that felines are more comfortable with grass and things you call weeds Weeds are a solid basis for hairball formation. I made two perfect hairballs yesterday evening.”

“I noticed, on the carpet and the floor in the living room.”

“Mrs. Human I live everywhere and my hairballs appear where I am. It would be so much easier to maufacture a hairball if I had the framework for their establishment. Perhaps you could remove one or two of those larger stones and plant something more interesting. Dandelions are quite good and a patch of Dactylitis Glomerata.”

“A patch of what?”

Dactylitis Glomerata, every feline knows what that is. Perhaps the human knows it more under the primitive human name of “cat grass”, although I really do not why that grass is named after such special creatures as felines. After all we were worshipped as gods in the old country and it is quite insulting to be name a grass as “cat”. Dactylitis Glomerata is the pricipal ingredient of a good well balanced hairball.”

“Tabby, I am not sure if I want quality hairballs. They are messy and I have to dispose of them.”

“That is the mistake you make. You should put them in a special place, perhaps the cellar, on a shelf where they dehydrate and label them with the date.”

“You mean a hairball collection. I do not think so.”

“Mrs. Human when you do things on the computer that you want to keep, you save them, name them and they have dates. My hairballs are my files, my own manufacture and deserve as much respect as your files.”

“But keeping them in the cellar on a shelf is something different than on a computer hard disk.”

“That is a matter of interpretation Mrs. Human, just meowing. Of course I could use the pot where you have that horse chestnut tree growing in the garden………..”
