Daily Feline Prompt: Mirror, Mirror on the wall

Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?


“That’s a clever photo Tabby.”

“Yes Mrs. Human, just something I pawed up quickly in my pawshop programme on my pawpad. After all it was William Paw Gates that invented the pawpad for his feline Aristotle Pawstein.”

“Of course, how could I forget. And what about your blog, what does it reveal?”

“Mrs. Human I am feline and therefore I exist as such. There are no revelations. Everyone treasures my high intelligence and don’t forget we were once…….”

“….worshipped as Gods?”

“How did you know I was going to say that?”

“You do mention in now and again Tabby.”

“Of course, do not forget our outlook on the human.”

“Which is?”

“We do tend to regard you as warmblooded furniture, but I borrowed that one from the computer, although I did make the suggestion.”

“Would you like to take a seat on my lap Tabby”

“Not at the moment, I have another programme, but I might partake in a rest at lunch time on the bed when you are taking a golden oldie sleep, so leave enough room for me as well.”

“Of course Tabby, no problem. 

“And now to continue, this is one of my blogs. I think I will keep the name Tabby, as my real name, Empress Tabatha Twelve Lives would be too much to paw. The theme choice goes without saying, first of I, me and myself, followed by tuna fish, bird and mouse. I am still working on a design, but a pyramid with a figure of Bastet would suit my importance. My posts are quite versatile, usually all about me, what I eat and my sleeping places, as well as a few territorial battles with other felines which I usually win of course.”

“You win them? I thought you just ran for it.”

“But I am the fastest feline on the block Mrs. Human.”

“OK, through necessity probably.”

“For a piece of warmblooded furniture, you are being a little too talkative today Mrs. Human. I think my fans have now realised what an important feline blogger I am and I will definitely be up for feline blogger of the year. So where is the tuna fish?”

“Coming at once Empress Tabitha Twelve Lives.”

“You can call me Tabby Mrs. Human, we don’t want to overdo it now do we. I might get the reputation of a show-off.”
