Daily Feline Prompt: Feline breakdown

What habits should felines break?

Tabby paw prints in the bathroom

“TABBY come here”

“Mrs. Human, you do not have to shout so loud. We felines have sensitive ears. We can hear a whisker drop.”

“Yes Tabby, I am sure, perhaps you can tell me if you heard the hair of your fur drop when you took a walk in the bath after first of all walking through the fields outside.”

“Now you know Mrs. Human, I don’t think I did. Did I leave a fur hair after leaping into the bath?”

“Yes you did Tabby, it is stuck to the mud from the paw print.”

“Perhaps it was Fluffy-“

“No, Tabby. Fluffy is blind and cannot find the way from outside to inside. Remember, he is tied to a pole in the garden, otherwise he might wander away.”

“Of course, Mrs. Human, then it was probably me. I was having one of my moments of feline breakdown. As the great feline philosopher Bertrand Russell Paw said “One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the forgetfulness of leaving paw marks in the bath”, so you should not shout Mrs. Human, otherwise you also might have a nervous breakdown.”

“True Tabby, I almost had a breakdown when I had to clean the bath of your muddy paw marks.”

“But you did it, you see Mrs. Human, everything is possible, so no reason for a hissy fit or being a drama queen. Anyhow that was this morning and as you know we felines are known for our short memories. Is that all Mrs. Human? I have to catch up on my sleep. You disturbed me with your loud voice.”

    • I had to go to the bathroom and all I could see were muddy paw prints on the bath. Tabby was sitting and watching me from another room. Luckily I could shower it all away in the bath with no problem, but I was not happy. I suppose I did throw a mini hissy fit when it happened.

  1. Dear Tabby and Fluffy, I sent you something that should show up in your human’s email or Google+. I hope you like it! As for muddy feet — my human doesn’t even care. She says ‘Dogs are dogs,’ which shows how wise she is. Yours forever, Dusty T. Dog

      Unfortunately I did not find it. Mrs. Human said try gerber.pat@bluewin.ch. I know muddy paws are a national dress of canines. Mrs. Human also says “felines are “felines” which does not seem to assist the mutual understanding between humans and felines. That is the problem when dealing with inferior intelligence.

      • Dear Tabby and Fluffy — Thank you for a good email for your human. I’ve told my human and I believe she’s sent my message. I wish I could understand why my human doesn’t take me for walks around the neighborhood. She takes my little sister and Mindy, but not me. Yours always, Dusty T. Dog

          Humans are difficult to understand. Luckily our human has never even thought about taking us for a wal – actually for a feline it would be quite degrading. Hold up your canine head, you are you (and can always bury a bone if life gets boring).

          • Dear Tabby and Fluffy — wow another difference between canines and felines! We like to hunt with our humans and I know you are master hunters and don’t need the teamwork. Yours always, Dusty T. Dog
