WordPress Daily Feline Prompt: Do or Die - with 9 Lives

You have three hundred meows to justify the existence of your favorite person, place, or thing. Failure to convince will result in it vanishing without a trace. Go!

Tuna fish 1

“Felines it says favourite person, place or thing and I see a photo of two tins of Tuna fish.”

“Of course Mrs. Human, one for Fluffy and one for me.”

“But Tabby there is more to life than tuna fish.”

“I know, but tuna fish is a large piece of life, and if I do not justify its existence it will disappear and no self respecting feline would endanger a tin of tuna fish.”

“Tabby is right Mrs. Human, tuna fish forever.”

“Ok Fluffy and Tabby, so what are the justifications.”

“Mrs. Human we do not need justifications for tuna fish. Tuna fish is a necessity in the life of a feline, agreed Fluffy.”

“Yes, Tabby. It is one of the Bastet commandments, I believe No. 236 “when choosing a human, be sure that she always has a regular supply of tuna fish”.”

“Oh, I didn’t know that.”

“Yes Mrs. Human Fluffy knows her Bastet commandments. No. 237 goes further to say that “a paw friendly tin opener should always be in reach” and No. 238 says “if supplies of tuna fish are getting low, apply your human’s credit card and your pawpad and order them online by Pawnnet“.”

“So what are the qualities of tuna fish felines.”

“It tastes good, has accompanying juice and makes a change from those boring vitamin pellets that you are constantly filling our food dish with.”

“And Bastet said let the felines find tuna fish and eat it and be happy.”

“I didn’t know you were so religious felines.”

“Of course we are Mrs. Human. It is written on the tomb of Bastet, in hieroglyphs of course. It can be translated as “I, me and myself and the tuna fish”, although many egyptologists disagree, but they never learnt to read meow did they?


  1. Bastet must have been able to see into the future!! No tinned tuna in ancient Egyptian days.

    1. Bastet was way ahead of her time. Her civilisation beamed her up to planet earth. She showed them how to build a pyramid She deliberately emptied the tuna tins and hid them from the humans, so as not to confuse them.
