Daily Feline Prompt: Feline 1984

You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.

My friend's Alsatian

“No, Mrs. Human, take it away, it will kill me, eat me.”

“But it’s only a photo Tabby.”

“Ah, in that case you can leave there, but you must admit it is a big dog.”

“Alsations are always big dogs. Like Maine Coons are always big felines.”

“That is something completely different. Maine Coons are felines and you know what you are dealing with”

“By the way Mr. Human just scared Roschti away, he was helping himself to your food bowl.”

“What? Where was I at the time?”

“Sleeping naturally in the bathroom, where it is sheltered and warm.”

“What was in the food bowl?”

“Delicious vitamin pellets of the best quality.”

“In that case, put the bowl outside.”

“But then all the felines in the neighbourhood will help themselves.”

“Exactly. To answer the feline daily prompt - my greatest fear would be locked in a room with a dish of vitamin pellets. Never do that to me Mrs. Human, I couldn’t stand it, I would have nightmares, vitamin pellets chasing me through the room saying “eat me, eat me” with their brown hard cores of vitamins. No, that would be too much.”

“But Tabby, don't get worked up, there are no vitamin pellets left, Roschti ate them all and he seemed to be quite happy.”

“Of course he was happy. Motto No. 1 in the Book of Bastet, “The food always tastes better in the other bowl”.

“So now you are going to Roschi’s home to see what is in his bowl.”

“I don’t think so, today is his vitamin pellet day. What’s for dinner Mrs. Human?”

“Something new from the food suppliers. Special tuna fish flavoured - vitamin pellets.”

“Give me some cat nip to calm my nerves.”


  1. Beautiful dog in the photo. Did Tabby enjoy the tuna-flavoured pellets?

    1. He ate them, that is the main thing I suppose. the dog belonged to a late friend of mine. she would always take him with her when shopping and he would wait outside the supermarket.
