Daily Feline Prompt: If you leave

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one life to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?

Tabby leaving

“Where are you going Tabby?”

“Don’t ask, I am finished here, I am leaving.”

“But Tabby, did something happen. Did I insult you.”

“It is my own decision Mrs. Human, just let me go.”

“But where will you go?”

“I will find a place to settle Mrs. Human. There is always an opportunity for a Tabby feline to find its way in life.”

“It sounds very dramatic.”

“Well it’s not like I am leaving 8 lives behind. I am taking what I have with me, but there is one thing I am sure of.”

“What is that Tabby.”

“My attitude to tuna fish has changed a lot since owning humans, and so I will be back. First of all I will have to take the path of knowledge. My feline colleague Roschti told me that burying my recycling process is more rewarding in the neighbour’s territory and they have planted some catnip.  What time did you say dinner will be served Mrs. Human? I don't want to be late, Today is tuna fish day. I will bring some catnip with me as a dessert.”
