Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Cake


“What is that Mrs. Human?”

“It is your food. I thought I would bring it to you, instead of having to walk to the bowl on you own Tabby.”

“Yes, Mrs. Human, very thoughful, but if you really want to be of assistance and make my food times something to remember and treasure, then I would suggest changing the menu to something more appetising. Something smells fishy somewhere. You never bring me anything, I always have to get it myself.”

“But Tabby it says on the bag that these nutritious pellets are recommended to strengthen the resistance to all sorts of feline problems. It is only the pellets that smell fishy.”

“Also there is a problem of having to crunch these wonderful nutrition rich pellets and grind them with my teeth to get them to a suitable size for swallowing.”

“Tabby, there are no “how to eat” instructions delivered with the bag, it is assumed that every intelligent feline knows what to do with them.”

“Mrs. Human, I am not “every intelligent feline” I am the one and only special, gifted feline and I do not intend to bury my pearly teeth into this bowl to prove a point.”

“What point?”

“That they are delicious and healthy for all felines. It is degrading to munch on these imitation plastic food pellets. What would my godly ancestors say when they would see how the dignity of a once worshipped and treasured feline has been reduced to an imitation clockwork cat that buries its mouth into a bowl of tasteless pellets and chew them. Not to mention the aesthetic side of the whole action. They are not only tasteless, but an insult to the imagination. There is nothing positive about this food, it is an insult to the feline feeding customs. Take it away and bring me tuna fish.”

“Sorry Tabby, but I opened the last can yesterday and there is no more. It seems that in human history the humans were complaining that they had not bread and the queen said “let them eat cake”.”

“What does that have to do with me?”

“There is no tuna fish left, and so it seems I must let you eat healthy vitamin enriched fish flavoured pellets.”

“Hissss – that is not even funny, but an insult to my taste buds.”

  1. Too funny. Tabby must come from a sea-faring line of cats that real tuna is the preferred food of choice. I understand, though, about Tabby’s reluctance to eat kibble and the demand for ancestral offerings. My Gibbs can be the same way. He prefers beef and chicken over kibble, but that’s only his treat when he’s being a good boy.

  2. Have YOU ever tasted one of those pellets? I tasted one of our dogs pellets and … well … it was, as far as I could tell, completely without any taste. Of any kind. Yet the doggies still consume them with apparent enthusiasm. But dogs, you know, they will eat (almost) anything.

    • No, I have not tried one. You mean if I would eat them and Tabby sees me, she will follow my example, that is an idea. Although if she gets nothing else, she will eat them. They are supposed to be healthy.


  3. Dear Tabby, My food is similar in color, size and texture. I like it. Maybe it tastes better than yours. Of course, I like it very much when our human gives me some tuna… That’s pretty often now that my little sister managed her coup. I still recommend a hunger strike. As a result of that my little sister gets tuna twice a day on her kibble, and I get to clean out the tuna can. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Hunger Strike? this was abolished back in the old country. No self-respecting feline would go on a hunger strike. That would mean no food at all. Even vitamin pellets are better than an empty bowl. I will have to rethink my tactics. Not that Mrs. Human gets strange ideas. What is good enough for the canines is not always good enough for the felines.
