Daily Feline Prompt: It must be true, Bastet said it was

Link to an item in the news you’ve been thinking about lately, and write the op-ed you’d like to see published on the topic.


“Anything good in the newspaper Fluffy?”

“It is the human newspaper, so only has stuff about politics and film stars, although I read they will be having elections soon.”

“Another waste of time to read Fluffy. They never elect a feline as Prime Minister. They are jealous of our gifts of territorial protection. I will have a look at the Feline Times on my pawpad, there might be something interesting there. Yes, look, well I never, Garfield has been awarded the Golden Feline for his role in the film, Go West young kitten.”

“Oh I read the book by Catnip Tiddleywinks. I had to take a dose of catnip afterwards to settle my nerves. It was so emotional.”

“Fluffy, since when do we felines have emotions?”

“Tabby, of course we have emotions, it is written in the book of Bastet, chapter 1066, verse 400a “Felines have a 10th life called emotion. It is to be kept from human eyes as it would be seen as a sign of feline weakness. It may exist after being involved in a book or film. This 10th life is to be kept from non-feline eyes.” You see Tabby.”

“Yes, but it was written as an appendix to verse 400, which says “stay cool and when excited take a dose of catnip”.

“Tabby, Bastet is so wise. She has an answer for everything.”

“Ok, anything else in the Feline Times?”

“Yes, there is. Apparently a flock of swallows will be arriving from other countries, exhausted after such a long flight. They will be ideal as prey for felines.”

“Where exactly?”

“There is a map showing the route. It doesn’t seem to cross our territory.”

“Anything else?”

“Tonight is ideal weather for mice. They will be searching for larger homes to accommodate their growing families. It is advisable to watch and wait.”

“Fine, then I will take a moolight walk this evening. Sounds very profitable. Perhaps I might write an article about my success for tomorrow’s edition. I might even take a selfie of me with a mouse hanging from my paws.”

  1. My kitties LUV the pictures and are waiting for the selfie to be posted. The cats here also love to read the papers, especially when there is a lap underneath said papers. They get excited when I read the pet store adds. They are getting low on catnip. They have little attention for headlines concerning drought or tornados. They have no concept, having lived inside where the weather is always the same. They did ask how the weather is in your country.

      • As a mere human I have never done a guest post and I really do not know how it works. I would be honoured in the name of Tabby and Fluffy to write a guest post, but time is a problem at the moment. I barely have the time to write my own posts, although I will bear it in mind.

  2. Dear Tabby and Fluffy — I was reading the Dog News this morning at the front gate. Looks like the human children will be looking for Easter Eggs in the local park. I thought that would be a great opportunity for me to scare everyone away by barking loudly and jumping really high, but my human put the kybosh on that and now I’m stuck in the house. My opinion is that she is a control freak. Yours forever and a day, faithfully, Dusty T. Dog
