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┬áproblem 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.”
