Daily Feline Post: Feline Saturday Night

Tell us about the most exciting big night out you had recently.


“What’s a big night Mrs. Human? What’s a night?”

“Night is when it gets dark and you need street lights to show the way.”

“Aha – what’s dark?”

“Well it’s like when I switch the light off at home, then you cannot see where you are going and might trip over something.”

“Mrs. Human have I even tripped against anything?”

“No, I don’t think so”

“And have I ever asked you to turn the lights on?”

“Not really.”

“In that case I assume that you now realise that we felines see just as well in the “dark” whatever that is, than in the “light” which is also something that does not exist in meow. If I take a walk at night, the only difference is that life is more interesting in the grass. I might encounter a poor little mouse that has lost its way.”

“And you help him to find the entrance to his mouse home.”

“Are you mad? I help him to find the way to my digestive system. That is one of the reasons why Bastet made sure that her felines are always prepared. As the great feline author, Edgar Whiskers Paw Poe said in a feline reflective moment  “Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before and then I realised that darkness does not exist for a feline, and why dream about it, just do it and if it moves kill it and eat it”, yes, he could tell a few good feline tales about the reality of life. I remember his story The Black Cat. My departed litter sister Nera, who is now in the eternal corn chambers living her 10th life, was a black cat. I believe he wrote the story after meeting her. To answer the actual prompt, every night is Saturday night for a feline, although Saturdays do not exist in meow, but I think I get the idea.”
