Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Mystery


“Tabby, when I ask for a nice photo to show all your followers, you do not have to stick your tongue out.”

“I was showing the real me. You always tell me to smile for the camera.”

“That is not a smile.”

“It is a matter of interpretation Mrs. Human. There are many felines that would find it the perfect smile. Showing our true feelings for having our photo taken. And the word for smile does not exist in meow, it is a question of the distribution of the face muscles. What about you Mrs. Human, can you touch the tip of your nose with your tongue.”

“My tongue is not long enough.”

“You see, another human imperfection. Humans are full of mysteries.  If you could touch your nose with your tongue you would save time in the washing process. I am self sufficient and can do everything myself.”

“Not quite Tabby, you do not have opposable thumbs and I have to open the tins for you and the doors.”

“We are working on it Mrs. Human, wait until the next evolution. You know “where did we come from and where are we going” thing.”

“Have you been reading my book about “Origin”.”

“I did stick my nose into it, that it why I am now cleaning it, but it was all rubbish. The bit where were came from was when our leader Bastet, by the way a female feline, decided to colonise planet Earth, nothing with one celled creatures, we felines were perfect from the beginning. We have decided to take over again when we have at last devloped the paw friendly tin opener.”

“I do not think the felines will be capable of such possibilities.”

“And in the meanwhle you might even be able to touch your nose with your tongue. I could give you lessons if you want to.”

“Oh, Tabby, there are some things that are unique for the felines. Why should we humble humans copy them, you are so perfect.”

“Of course.”
