Daily Feline Prompt: Insisting Feline


“Mrs. Human, I insist on insisting.”

“What is that supposed to mean?”

“Exactly what I say. I have come to the conclusion that my cries for more quality remain unheard.”

“But Tabby, you are a feline and I am sure you would not want to be treated as a human.”

“Of course not. On the other paw I notice that your food is more varied than mine.”

“But I do my best Tabby.”

“Human best is not the same as feline best. Every evening you sit at the table and eat your meal. I sit watching with pleading eyes and savour every bite you take, but only from a distance. To add insult to injury, you toss me a few morsels of what you are eating: the unwanted pieces of meat that are deemed fit for a feline palate.”

“Because I am always thinking of you Tabby, and share my food with you.”

*That is not sharing. You toss me morsels here and there when you think of it. My rightful place is at the table with you with my own plate.”

“But you don’t like everything we eat.”

“I do not get a chance to choose, when you only give me what you do not want. From today it will be equality for felines, no better felines first. I will taste the food and you may eat what I leave.”

“No way Tabby, and that would not be very hygenic after you dip your nose into the food and humans do not eat vitamin pellets.”

“You see. I get vitamin pellets that humans refuse. In future you can write a menu plan at the beginning of the week, and I will give it my paw of approval.”

“No Tabby. I do not want to eat tuna fish every day of the week.”

“But I do, I insist.”

“In that case you will have your food and I will have mine. Tonight I am eating egg and tomatoes.”

“I cannot digest tomatoes Mrs. Human and do not like eggs.”

“I was going to serve you tuna fish, but you insist on the same as human food.”

“No problem Mrs. Human, there are always exceptions to the rule.”
