Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Colours

Write about anything you’d like, but make sure that all seven colours of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet — make an appearance in the post, either through word or image.

“What’s colours Tabby?”

“Colours are …. well, you know, something that humans have. Look at the picture, you can see felines in all sorts of colours.”

“I am looking Tabby, but only see what I always see.”

“Of course you do, but humans see it all differently.”

“Humans see everything differently. I suppose that is why they do not understand the feline needs. There is more to life than just cleaning litter boxes and getting rid of hair balls on the carpet. Humans do not have such fun as we do. Just cooking a meal in a pan without the fun of the hunt.”

“Fluffy, they go hunting, but the meat is already dead.”

“Yuck, they buy dead meat?”

“Yes, they even eat things that grow in the ground. They call it vegetable and salad. It seems they find it decorative on the plate.”

“But what is so decorative about a few green plants with some brown mixed in.”

“That is the problem Fluffy. Humans talk about reds and yellows. I have even heard the word “blue” mentioned when they look at a summer sky.”

“Do humans originate in this world Tabby, or do they come from another planet?”

“I think they arrived just after we did.”

“Then how come they say all these funny words?”

“They call them colours. We don’t need colours Fluffy. Just enjoy your tuna, bird and mouse. Colours don’t have a taste. It is one of those human things. It makes them feel more superior.”

“Aha, but they still have to empty our litter tray.”

“Of course they do. We have to ensure that they don't have ides about being something better, just because of a few colours.”


  1. oh the dreaded litter tray. My cat is quite elderly now and even though we have a large tray she sometimes manages to miss!
