Daily Feline Prompt: Non-Regional Feline Diction

Write about whatever you’d like, but write using regional slang, your dialect, or in your accent.


“Tabby, where are you?”


“That is not an answer, where are you?”

“Meow, meow.”


“Meow, meow, meow. What is the matter Mrs. Human, don't you understand meow. That means I am in my pole position on top of the cupboard keeping an eyes on everything. I thought you understood meow.”

“I do Tabby, but that was a different meow. I could hardly hear it.”

“That was because I was applying my higher powers of telepathic meow. That is the advanced meow. All other felines understand it.”

“But Tabby I am not a feline, but a human.”

“I noticed. Never mind, we cannot all be the chosen now can we? Shame you don’t have four paws, we could visit some wonderful feline hunting grounds. We could hunt mice together.”

“Tabby I do not really want to hunt mice, I have enough to do opening your tins of tuna fish. If I was a feline you would have to abstain from eating tuna fish because your Bastet guy forgot to give you opposable thumbs.”

“Our Bastet was not a guy she was a dame and had her reasons for not giving us opposable thumbs. If she did we would have to open our own tins and the humans would feel even more useless than they already are. MEow, MEow MEow.”

“Ok Tabby I have understood, but you don’t have to stamp your paw. That was an instruction to empty your recycling tray I believe.”

“Yes, you are learning. When we emphasise the ME at the beginning of Meow it means flush the tray in human terms of the word.


  1. Is Tabby's meow with a Swiss dialect?

    1. Actually she has a sort of broken meow. she starts, makes a break and eventually it sound like "wa-u-wau". More a war cry.
