Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Egg?


You expect me to talk about eggs. Of course, the old question of what came first, the chicken, in my case bird, or the egg is an eternal ponderable. We felines do not eat eggs, disgusting objects, but left to their own device they are an good source of nutrition. If there were no eggs, there would be no birds, so the question that the lower class human race has been pondering for many years is obvious. The egg came first, the mother bird sits on the egg and the egg hatches. The result is a little bird that spends its time in a nest with an open beak ready to devour the worm of the day.

How do I know this? I have spent hours sudying the development of a bird. Some might even fall out of the nest and I am always ready and waiting. A fallen bird has no hope of survival so I might be in the right place at the right time and help it on its way. It is all in the name of evolution.

If the bird survives  the egg  stage it will grow and develop and play a part in life’s cycle. It will eventually lay its own eggs and produce more birds. It is an ideal situation for a feline as we have a permanent supply of food. Who cares if the egg or the bird comes first. As long as there are birds, it makes no difference.

As the famous feline writer Paws Christen Anderson said “Being born in a human garden does not matter, if only you are hatched where felines live”, or did I get that one wrong.

  1. Dear Tabby, Every spring the birds return to our house and they build nests. Sometimes eggs fall out of the nests and we eat them. Our human buries the shells in her garden and if we try to get the shell (yum!) she yells, “No!!!” Truly, those humans are strange. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I used to look after the garden for Mrs. Human. You know clearing away the birds, they can make such a mess. But no recognition for my hard work and she tells me to leave the birds alone. I am still wondering why the birds are there if I am not allowed to enjoy their presence. If Mrs. Human can eat a chicken why can’t I eat a bird. It is just not logical.
