Daily Feline Prompt: Teach your Feline Bloggers Well

We all know how to do something well — write a post that teaches readers how to do something you know and/or love to do.


Here is the first lesson. If you notice your human wants to take a photo of you, then walk away. She will follow you with the camera and you may think there is no escape, but she will soon get irritated  because she has no suitable adorable photo of Tiddles to show all her blogging friends. Eventually your human will lose patience and put the camera down, then is your chance to stand on your back legs, wave your front paws and perhaps even twiddle your ears. She will then take the camera in her hands again for a unique photo, but in that moment when she wants to point and shoot, you disappear into the recycling tray.

Another thing to remember is to disappear now and again. Your human begins a search in all sorts of strange places. She thinks you might have been locked in a cupboard. To be quite honest I have been locked in a cupboard, but it was a nice cupboard: closed in by four walls and on a comfortable soft cushion of pullovers. Scratch on the door when you want to be released and do not forget to draw a few threads from the pullovers before you leave. We call that leaving your mark. In this connection a pile of washing ready to be ironed is also to be recommended, although it could be that the human dislikes feline fur traces left on the linen. Just walk away it is a human problem, and they things called brushes which they can use to remove the fur. Personally I find a fur layer enhances the washing surface.

The human may still be searching for you. If only she would raise her head. She would see that you have taken the pole position in your apartment where you can watch every move the human makes.  In that case a further lesson, always be one paw ahead.

Now the most important thing. If you hear the sound of the tin opener, be prepared. Of course there are tins that humans open for themselves, but you can never be too careful. It might be the tin containing the tuna fish, and we felines do not want to miss out of a dish of tuna fish.
