Daily Feline Prompt: World’s Best Feline Widget

You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build?


“Tabby what are you doing?”

“Shhh Mrs. Human, I must concentrate. This is not an easy job. I have to think it over.”

“It looks very complicated.”

“It is. I had a dream that I invented the first paw friendly tin opener for felines. It was a universal event. They built a statue in my honour and I was famous in the feline world.”

“That is fantastic Tabby, so what happens next in the dream.”

“Nothing Mrs. Human, I now have to think it over. there we have a tin opener and I see the first problem.”

“Which is?”

“There are only two handles, meaning I will have to stand on my back legs when I am holding it in my front paws and there we have the first problem. How am I going to turn the wheel to revolve the cutting edge in the tin. Shh Mrs. Human, do not disturb. I have it. I need the help of a second feline.”

“But I could hold the tin while you turn the wheel.”

“This is to be an all feline appliance. No humans are to be involved. Opening tins of tuna fish should be done by felines only. The human element is to be excluded – understood Mrs. Human.”

“Oh, sorry Tabby, yes of course, but …..”

“No buts. I think I will have to call the feline next door.”

“I though you did not connect with him.”

“On a question of tuna fish, we always connect. Meow Butch come here.”

“Meow Tabby, definitely not. I am not in the mood for a discussion about territorial rights.”

“It is a discussion about the paw friendly tin opener Butch.”

“Will be there straight away. What do I have to do?”

“Take the tin in your front paws and hold it tight.”

“No Problem, like that?”

“Yes, and now I will apply the tin opener with my two front paws. Butch stay where you are. Where are you going?”

“I just heard my human opening a tin of something, probably for my lunch. Let’s do the job another day. Why bother Tabby, when we have human slaves for the work?”

“Mrs. Human.”

“Yes Tabby.”

“I have postponed my ingenious idea for a paw friendly tin opener to another day.”


“Open the tin Mrs. Human, I am hungry.”

    • I do not think that would work. I set up everything for a perfect photo of Tabby with the tin opener and can where she was relaxing. She stood up, looked at the promps and walked away so Mrs. Human was following her in the appartment until she sat and looked at me as if I was mad.


  1. I often show the tuna can to my kitties to and ask them if they want it. Of course they cry back to say they do and to just hurry up and open it already. My cans have a pull tab.. I fear the day Tabby figures it out and spreads the word. I’ll come home to fat cats and no tuna!
