Daily Feline Prompt: The Guilt that haunts me - Huh?

Share a time when you were overcome with guilt. What were the circumstances? How did you overcome your guilt?


“It wasn’t me Mrs. Human, it was the feline next door.”

“But there is no feline next door Tabby. The next feline is two doors away. A feline buried their recycling material where my rose bush is.”

“But Mrs. Human I thought rose bushes like recycling material. It makes them strong and resistant. They develop king sized flowers and I am sure all your neighbours will be jealous.”

“Tabby that is almost a confession.”

“It is all a matter or interpretation. I was just saying.”

“But it is buried next to the roots of the bush.”

“All the better, absorption of the positive fertilising elements will be much quicker.”

“Not if the roots are damaged.”

“How do you know if they are damaged. You have not even looked closely. There were too many thorns on the rose to get closer, so I am sure they are not damaged.”

“You see Tabby, that is proof, you have admitted to burying your recycling matter next to my rose bush.”

“You humans are never satisified. I was convinced you would be pleased, proud, happy, but no. No appreciation for the felines.”

“But Tabby, it smells.”

“The great feline playwright William Catnipspear said in one of his great works, Romeo and Juliet on a roof at full moon “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet as feline recycling matter”.”

“I seem to have that quote differently in my memory Tabby.”

“That is because you are a human and do not appreciate the sweet scents of a feline life.”
