Daily Feline Prompt: Don't forget the felines

Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave? Describe the lasting effect you want to have on the world, after you’re gone.

Lady, September 2001-February 2002

“Who is that feline Tabby?”

“That is Lady, she only lived here a year before getting her 10th life and going to the Eternal Corn Chambers. I never actually knew her, but Mrs. Human sometimes mentions her.”

“So she has never been forgotten.”

“Of course not Fluffy, we felines are never forgotten. We leave our paw marks on the world. It is our purpose in life and in death to continue, although the humans don’t really see us (unless we want them to like Nera)”.

“But when we are no longer here, living our 10th life, who will write out daily prompts.”

“Probably Mrs. Human will do it for us, we will have to change the method of writing as Mrs. Human cannot write on a pawpad. We will have to send our wonderful blog ideas by telepathy while she is sleeping, no problem.”

“Of course Tabby. Do you think Nera will help us.”

“Nera will probably take over and tell us what to tell Mrs. Human. By the time we enter our 10th lives in the Kingdom of Bastet, Nera will probably be in charge of the telepathy department. I heard she is working on the development of a new system known as “Catnip”.”

“That’s an original name. I thought Catnip was something to send us into another world.”

“Exactly, that’s why it’s called Catnip. I heard a rumour that there might even be an 11th life involved, Nera was never satisfied with 9 lives and she found the 10th life is becoming a little boring. As the great philosophiser Ludwig Katzenstein said “The real question of life after death isn't whether or not it exists, but how many lives do we get.””

“Tabby, where do you find all those quotes from those wise felines.”

“Don’t ask stupid questions Fluffy, one day you will be as wise as I am.”


  1. Hahaha! Love it Pat.

    I have got a new kitty that I call Misty because of her colouring. Find myself still calling for Minx now and then but that is happening less and less. I am keeping her inside and because of that am finding her completely different to all of my other babies. Very curious in every little thing I do, is completely facinated with plug holes. If I want her and she won't come when I call, I just trun the tap on. She is also trying to find a way to get at the fish in my aquaremun. I have found that if I ignore when she is naughty she soon stops. She loves my hanging crystals and knows not to touch but very defiant. Very much a smoocher too and has learnt to give kisses already.

    Take care. Hugs.

    1. I never had cats that played with water, but Nera would always be there when I had runner beans. She would take one and play with it like a footballer.

  2. I wonder if Nera is incorporating elements of M-theory in her research. Very clever feline if she is!!! :-))

    1. I think she is now known as gatto di tutti gatti where she now is.

  3. Tabby, I don't think Fluffy asks stupid questions, but then I am only human.

    1. They are only stupid when Tabby does not know the answer
