Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Undoingness

If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.

Tabby eating tuna fish

“Nice action photo Tabby, a real appetising “eat” photo.”

“Yes Fluffy, one of those good days where we got our tuna fish dish, but there was a problem.”

“A problem?”

“Yes, How often do we felines want a dish of tuna fish. We gaze at Mrs. Human with pleading eyes pointing in the direction of the cupboard where the supplies are kept and she ignores us. It is so degrading to have to wait until this brain dead human realises that we have a command to be fulfilled.”

“I know the feeling Tabby, tell me about it. We must find a solution to this anti-feline state of affairs.”

“It is obvious Fluffy. We must uninvent the tin opener. I will have to have a word with Nera. Perhaps she can put in a suggestion in the world of Bastet where she now floats. It is all because of the tin opener. Have you ever seen such an instrument? It is completely against the logics of a paw. Not even with four paws does it work.”

“A very good point Tabby. These humans are so full of themselves putting men on the moon, but they are not capable of making a paw friendly tin opener, or even abolishing tins and inventing something more feline friendly.”

“A very good point Fluffy. I think they could perhaps put the tuna in plastic bags. We could then just tear them apart and Mrs. Human would be spared the work of opening the tins. Just a minute, give me your pawpad I have an idea. Do you have that paw friendly plastic card we ordered from Visapaw?”

“Of course, it is very good, Just place it on the screen and it is done.”

“Look, here is a good site Fluffy. Buy your tuna in the tank. Not only the enjoyment of eating the tuna, but the fun of the hunt. Two live tuna fish delivered in their own tank. We are glad to be at your service, Hong’s live fish Emporium.”

“Yes Tabby, that is ideal. No more tins, no more tin openers.”

2 weeks later

“Felines, I had a special deliver today from Hong Kong by United Paw Service of two live tuna fish in a tank. Could you explain please?”

“Tabby you explain.”

“No Fluffy, you explain.”

“Mrs. Human, just put the tank in our food corner. We will deal with the rest and think, no more breaking your wonderful painted fingernails with a tin opener. The fish arrives fresh and ready to catch.”

  1. I am absolutely convinced that the only power we have over our pets is the opposable thumb. And that every night, when we go to bed, they get busy on the laptops and spend the night tweeting and emailing and ordering stuff on my credit card. I know many other pet owners who believe this too. Can millions of cat and dog owners be wrong? I think now. They are plotting and planning …

    • And they are of course telepathic, so are silent, make no noise and do it all by brain waves. Our fluffy is the only man we ever had, so he has a meow thing regularly about three in the morning just to let you know he is still there. Tabby does it all in her sleep. I was wondering what those scratch spurs were on my card.


    • Hi Dusty. sorry no deal, she took our Visapaw cards and cut them with unpaw friendly scissors. We have ordered new ones, but it will take some time. Just let us now the name of the Swiss dealer for the plastic tuna bags and we will contact Roschti, the ginger tom from next door. He still has his card and will get them for us.

        • Mrs. Human here. This is getting dangerous so I have shut down the pawpads. Ich staune. Wengistrasse 42 was our first appartment when we got married. Otherwise that means that the Migros (you know the Migros, something like the national Swiss Walmart) has tuna fish in plastic because Migros is Wengistrasse 13, although I have never seen it. I buy it in tins.

  2. First – your felines do not know everything – they for sure have never met paw-friendly tins like those from Schesir. And Second – You might want to leave the tuna alone – tuna is HUGE – it might even EAT cat.

      • Tuna one bite – I doubt they know the size of a tuna.
        bullet tuna (max. length: 50 cm (1.6 ft), weight: 1.8 kg (4 lb)) up to the Atlantic bluefin tuna (max. length: 4.6 m (15 ft), weight: 684 kg (1,508 lb)). The bluefin averages 2 m (6.6 ft), and is believed to live for up to 50 years.
