Daily Feline Prompt: Ascending Feline


Ascending is a way of life for a feline. You have to ascend to reach all good places. It is only when you ascend that you can look down upon everything, because felines are always first. Yes, it was our motto, and stolen from a human because he was a copycat. We felines do not like copycats, because we are original and always the first.

So, back to the facts of a feline life. Yes, we were born for high places because we were here first. When the first fish grew legs, we were already sitting in the trees, watching it all happen and thinking where will this lead to. I would add it was a good solution for food when the fish began to walk. We no longer had to swim for our meals. It was a self service supermarket. The biggest shock was the development of the species with opposable thumbs. We were there first, and had to manage with paws and claws.

However, Bastet said not to worry, the development of the opposable thumb creatures was intended. They would serve our feline cause, and so it was. Catching mice in the corn chambers did not need opposable thumbs. We were sly and crafty and had a good life, resulting in being worshipped as gods, our true destiny in life. However humans had only one life (primitive beings) and there was a rapid turnover. The decision to take the felines with them when they departed into their pyraminds was not so ideal, and so we retreated for a while.

We returned with a new target in our 9 lives. There was a small problem of being accused of witchcraft, especially if we had black fur, but even that was overthrown and today we have our rightful place amongst the humans. Where are we going? We are slowly taking over the human race again. Who needs opposable thumbs when the humans are our devoted slaves.

  1. Tabby–another great post. Me being a mostly black cat (I am a tuxedo cat), I do appreciate the validation of no witchcraft. Seriously! Have a great Sunday. Don’t forget to keep your human in line–Teemu.

  2. Hi Tabby, Martha here. I’ve learned that you felines have devised a powerful bacteria called “T-Gondii” that enslaves humans, makes them “adopt” you and care for you, believing that’s what they want to do — nay — must do. I find this an ingenious method for achieving feline ends. Felines first indeed! Your pal, Martha. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/03/how-your-cat-is-making-you-crazy/308873/

      Just a rumor spread by humans. If they cannot understand it then blame it on the poor defenseless felines. The humans developed opposable thumbs, We could do it as well, it didn’t have priority. Our secret weapon will surprise you all, just be careful with those hard vitamin pellets, you don’t know what secret vitamins they might hatbour.

  3. Hello Tabby, Biasini the horse here. We don’t need opposable thumbs either. We get on just find with one “toe” which is our hoof. There is a feline who lives at my barn. Her name is Mathilde. She is very smart. I like her a lot and she has humans well trained to look after her. She is also an ace at catching and devouring mice. Cheers Tabby. Stay well.

      In my younger days I would catch mice, they were a tasty meal, but now I prefer to let my human slave to deal with food supplies. I would try to reward my human with a mouse trophy, but she threw them in the garbage. No appreciation for my gifts,
