Daily Feline Prompt: If I ruled the feline world

You’ve been given the superpower to change one law of nature. How do you use it?

Tabby waking up

I do rule the world, along with a few million other felines. We have our own territories, which are generally as far as the eye can see, and being a feline that is quite a distance. If a mouse would appear in front of my paw and dance a samba, I would probably not see him, being short sighted and having no music appreciation. If the same mouse decided to move to the end of the field and wave, it would be his last wave because I would see clearly every move he made and it would be a good supplement to my food. Speaking of food:

“Mrs. Human I am hungry.”

“What would you like to eat Tabby?”

“Just a morsel of fish garnished with a sprinkling of chives.”

“But I thought you did not like chives Tabby.”

“It is not a question of liking, but we felines eat with our eyes and just a plate of fish with nothing is like a mouse without ears.”

“Oh, yes Tabby, I am sorry. How is this?”

“Perfect, you may go after filling up my bowl with some fresh water.”

You see that is the way to prove your status in a feline life. Train your human to be respectful and available at all times of the day and night. Sometimes it might be necessary to apply some paw respect which always works.

“Mrs. Human, Mrs. Human.”

“Yes Tabby.”

“Before you go can you close the blind. The sun is shining outside and is disturbing my effort to sleep.”

You see, just a little friendly persuasion is needed.


  1. Perhaps a superpower for Tabby would be one where her hair magically gets itself off furniture and into the bin!!

    1. We are actually lucky with Tabby, she rarely deposits fur. It is probably too short to leave a mark.
