Daily Feline Prompt: Weaving the Whiskers

Paw a post with three parts, each unrelated to the other, but create a common thread between them by including the same item — an object, a symbol, a place — in each part.

“What’s that Tabby?”

“That’s Part one of our feline post.”

“Me and an empty dish. You must be joking.”

“No, it is all very etheric, almost surreal, a thing of impossibility.”

“Tabby can you remain feline, I did not understand a word.”

“Wait until you see part two.”

“Part two?”

“Yes, although you have to imagine it because my paws are tired from the pawpad exercise and I cannot manage a second photoshop. Now your dish is empty, so think. What can you do with an empty dish?”

“Fill it with food?”

“Not very imaginative Fluffy. You can push it around with your nose, sit in the dish, or even find a dead mouse and put it in the dish. You could also dress in a paper hat with a cloak and recite a poem from the Dada movement.”

“Tabby, what is the sense of pushing a dish around with my nose? There is not enough room to sit in the dish and I don’t find dead mice because I am blind, and probably if there was a dead mouse you would have eaten it. Can you eat Dada?””

“But you have to use your imagination. This will be a masterpiece of literature when I am finished, in three parts, and no you cannot eat Dada, it is a thought process putting you in a creative dimension.”

“I can’t wait Tabby, so what is part 2?”

“I thought you could do that part.”

“I don’t do three part things, but OK, fill up the dish with something edible, like tuna fish?”

“That is where Mrs. Human comes into this three part work of art. She will open a tin of tuna fish and fill the dish.”

“What will I do Tabby? Forget it, it is Tuesday today and you get the tuna fish ration on Wednesday.”

“But Mrs. Human, Bastet does not have days of the week. It says in the book of Bastet, Chapter 1095, verse 44, “time is an irrelevant feature of a feline life. We exist, we breathe, we eat, we sleep when we want to.” And Mrs. Human we now want to eat tuna fish. It is all part of a project.”

“It is not part of my project Tabby.”

“But it is part 2 of the Daily Feline Prompt.”

“Then you will have to miss that part out and continue to Part 3.”

“OK Tabby, you heard Mrs. Human, so what is part 3?.”

“We all sleep.”

“But we sleep every day Tabby.”

“But this time we sleep as part 3 of the daily feline prompt.”

“is that a different type of sleep.”

“It would have been if Mrs. Human had filled part 2 with tuna fish. She has no understanding for the artistic talents of a feline.”

“Fluffy, Tabby, go to sleep. You seem to do part three all day sometimes. Even disciples of Dada sleep.”
