Daily Feline Prompt: Lazy Feline Learners

Is there something you’ve always wanted to learn but haven’t gotten around to? What is it and what’s stopping you from mastering the skill

Tabby through the window

“Not really, I can do it all, after all I am feline and felines are born with the highest intelligence. We were once worshipped as God. Mrs. Human, open the window.”

“Tabby it would be more polite if you meowed “could you open the widow please”.”

“Mrs. Human what is “please”, it does not exist in meow and having discussions about useless words will not open the window for me.”

“But all you have to do is push your nose on the cat flap. It even works both ways now, you can enter and leave as you please.”

“I do not have time for theoretical discussions Mrs. Human, so open the window.”

“And I do not have time to open and close windows.”

“Mrs. Human I do not have the time to sit around outside. There is a plate of food waiting for me, my recycling tray and after a detailed wash I need my beauty sleep.”

“All you have to do is position your special entrance magnet in the right place and the cat flap will open automatically.”

“Big deal, but I have other important things to do than playing with cat flaps that open with magnets. And the ginger tom from next door  is on the lurch, so open the window otherwise I will break through the cat flap, he is getting nearer and hissing.”

“Oh, that is an emergency situation Tabby. As an exception I will open the window.”

“About time too.”

“The word is “Thankyou”. Ok I know it does not exist in meow, so where is the ginger tom?”

“What ginger tom? But now I am inside and ready for food, a recycle and sleep. Who cares about ginger toms, it was my intelligent answer and plan to enter in dignity.”


“Yes Mrs. Human”

“Forget it.”


  1. Is it me or is Tabby getting more bossy with humans now that Fluffy is not around?

    1. She now has to put up with me. I think she does miss Fluffy a little. They were never the greatest friends, but she had someone to hiss at in between.
