Daily Feline Prompt: Sorry, I’m Busy

Tell us about a time when you should have helped someone… but didn’t.


“Tabby, are you finished with your bowl of tuna fish?”

“No, of course not, there are still some slivers of fish left.”

“Could you perhaps eat it, so that I can clear the bowl away?”

“Not at the moment Mrs. Human, I’m busy.”

“What are you doing in the garden that makes you so busy.”

“I am burying something.”

“But Tabby you buried something in that place yesterday, there are already two mounds of dirt there. What is so important that you have to bury it in the same place.?”

“Don’t ask, you really don’t want to know.”

“Are you using my garden  as a recycling depony?”

“I am enriching the earth with organic material.”

“I think that is the same thing. You have a recycling tray.”

“Recycling trays are boring and I can spread my aroma much better in the garden. Think of the nice strong plants that will grow next year, thanks to my fertiliser gift.”

“I don’t really look at it from that angle Tabby. When I begin to tidy up the garden I might step in it.”

“All the better Mrs. Human. You will spread it even more when you walk around.”

“But I might spread it in our home.”

“Is that a problem?You have so much time on your hands, I am sure you can clear it away easily. And now don’t bother me, I have to concentrate. I’m busy. And don’t ask because the answer is that the word “Sorry” doesn’t exist in meow.”
