Daily Feline Prompt: Forward Feline Drive

What is the one thing that drives you to wake up in the morning and do whatever it is you do? Is it writing, family, friends, or something else entirely?


“When is morning Tabby?”

“No idea Fluffy, why?”

“Because it asks what makes us wake up in the morning.”

“Aha, do I wake up in the morning? I don’t know. All I know is that I sleep and when I am hungry I shuffle along to the food bowl, force some of those dry vitamin packed pellets down and then is time to go.”

“Funny question really Tabby. I don’t think it was meant for the superior feline species. We don’t do mornings, afternoons, evenings or nights. We sleep most of the time anyhow.”

“You know one of the feline ancients, Thomas Aquinas cat said “a failed hunting expedition for a mouse can be alleviated by a good sleep, a good lick and a slurp of fresh rainwater”.”

“Are you sure he said that Tabby.”

“It says so in my pawpad.”

“I wouldn’t believe everything in those pawpads, although I think that Tom Aquinas knew what he was talking about. Any feline with the second name meaning Water, knew where to find a good drop.”

“Exactly Fluffy, although we should sleep over it.”

“Good idea Tabby, I sleep over most things.”

“So do I, it is the solution to all our problems.”

“Although I think I will postpone my sleep until later.”


“I can hear the sound of the tin opener.”

“I suppose that would be it, our driving thing."


  1. It has always been cats for me Pat. It is not often I beat them in waking up. Misty is so curious she is into everything. I was cleaning the glass on the fishtank yesterday unaware that Misty was on the table watching...I became very aware when she jumped in it though.I don't know who got the biggest fright, her, the fish, or me. I managed to grab her and haul her out really fast. Called her some very unladylike names too. lol Have a great weekend.

  2. As long as she did not take a slice of lemon with her to enhance the taste :-)
