Daily Feline Prompt: Take a Feline chance on me

What’s the biggest feline chance you ever took? Did it work out? Do tell!

Tabby meeting a sphinx cat

“Yes this was definitely the biggest chance I took.”

“What was so special?”

“Hey Fluffy, try and make friends with a naked feline. That is not easy.”

“Why not, I had no problem. His name was Koshka and he purrs and meows just like us. He even used the garden as a recycling depony. Just because he is naked it does not mean that he is not a feline.”

“You mean you actually had contact to this feline that is different.”

“No problem, he didn’t even laugh at my corkscrew whiskers like you do. I found him quite pleasant and he said he did not choose to have no fur like us, it just happened.”

“Oh, I see. I was a little careful with it. I had a sniff and did a hiss.”

“He is not an it, he is a feline just like us. And so what happened?”

“He ran away of course, I applied my ferocious hiss.”

“That was not nice Tabby. All felines are the same under the fur.”

“I know Fluffy, but the problem is that he did not have any fur.”

“All the better, then you saw the naked truth.”

“Anyhow he is no longer here.”

“It seems that his human has moved away, and he decided to go with her.”

“Oh, that’s a shame.”

“I thought you did not like him.”

“But he was a challenge, and I love challenges. Anyhow there was the advantage that he ran away from me and I did not have to run away from him.”

“I thought all felines were equal.”

“Almost, but some are more equal than others.”

“I read that Aristotle Cat said “The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal”.

“There you have it Fluffy, it always results in a disagreement of the feline kind.”

  1. With the line "some are more equal than others' I thought perhaps the felines had been reading George Orwell.
