Daily Feline Prompt: The Great Feline Pretender

Are you full of confidence or have you ever suffered from Imposter Syndrome? Tell us all about it.


“Are you studying art Tabby?”

“Studying, of course not. I just want to improve my artistic talents and make an attempt at painting the Furry Mona Lisa to hang next to my bed.”

“Which bed Tabby? You seem to have so many.”

“That is the problem. That is why I chose to study this book. Perhaps I will gain some ideas from it for various paintings.”

“I have a nice photo of Garfield in a magazine. That would look nice next to your cushion on top of the cupboard.”

“No, Garfield is no longer in. He is getting old and his fur is turning slightly grey.”

“What about Grumpy Cat?”

“No, I do not want to have catmares when I awake. I have an idea, give me a tin of tuna fish unopened.”

“Unopened? Tabby are you not feeling well, shall I take you to the uncle vet.”

“I beg your pardon. No, Mrs. Human, What Andy Pawhole did with the tin of Campbell’s Soup, I can do with a tin of tuna fish. I will become famous. I will sign my paintings with a pawprint, and my first exhibition will be a sell out. Felines will be queuing at the gallery to see my unique painting. Yes, that will be my trade mark in future. I will be interviewed. the “Tuna Fish Tin” painting will be reproduced, highlighted with various theme colours. I will become famous.”

“Err, Tabby, it has all been done before.”

“But not by such a gifted feline as I am. Just give me a paw friendly paintbrush, no better a tin to spray the paint onto the canvas on the floor. I then only have to push the lever with my paw and the masterpiece will be finished. Perhaps you could shape the outlines of the tin afterwards with a brush Mrs. Human.”

“But I though it would be all your own work.”

“Shhhh, you don’t have to tell everyone. I am sure that Andy Pawhole did not paint the letters on the tin of Campbells soup himself. The human that he owned also helped.”


  1. Hmmmm.....seems like Tabby has 60's syndrome. Next symptom will be Tabby wanting to ride a motorcycle the length of Route 66!!

    1. She already does, but only in her dreams up to now.
