Daily Feline Prompt: Candid Feline


“Mrs. Human, I was not ready for that photo.”

“You looked OK to me Tabby. I can see all four paws and both sides of your whiskers.”

“But only the tip of my tail curled around my back right leg. The MacDonalds “M” on my forehead is very blurred. You should really ask me before taking a photo.”

“But the surprise photos are always the best.”

“That is a matter of opinion.”

“I will be entering a feline photo competition “Candid photos of felines”.

“I will be canned afterwards? I do not have opposable thumbs to open the can, and cans are only for tuna fish, although I think you can also buy it in plastic bags.”

“No Tabby, in human candid means informal photos without the subject’s knowledge.”

“Not very flattering. I did not even have time to sharpen my claws or wash behind my ears. What is the prize for the winner of the competition?”

“Yes, it is a great prize and I will even share the prize with you if I win.”

“Share with me? Share does not exist in meow, although I would make an exception in this case as the camera that does not need opposable thumbs has not yet been invented. Take another canned photo Mrs. Human, just to be sure we win.”

“Ok, but stand still and do not look at the camera. Look at something else.”

“Shall I look at my food bowl.”

“Good idea, I just have to top it up with vitamin pellets to give us a better chance to win the prize.”

“Do I have to eat them?”

“No not now, it is just for the photo.”

“Ok, how’s this?”

“Wonderful pose Tabby, perhaps you could put your paw in the bowl.”

“Of course, and what is the wonderful prize – a Versace designed food bowl?”

“Not quite. A year’s free supply of vitamin food pellets at your own choice. Would you prefer chicken, fish or beef? Tabby where are you going?”

“Forget the photo. You do not have to share the prize with me. You can keep it for yourself.”

“But humans do not eat feline vitamin pellets.”

“Yes, and in this case, neither does the feline that owns you.”
