Mentor? An experienced and trusted feline. That is me, I am experienced and trust myself. There is no-one that is more experienced than me. Of course there is my wall. The wall and I have a common denominator. The wall knows everything. I can stare at the wall all day and the wall stares back – what could be better?
My wall is a special wall. Last year Mrs. Human even had it freshly painted, for me of course. There were humans occupied all day putting paint on my wall. She even put plants in front of it to make it look better. Yes I am her mentor, what I meow, she does without hesitation. She believes in me of course. She recognises my wisdom, follows my advice, almost. There is still a disagreement about the hard, tasteless vitamin pellets but one day I will conquer this problem and she will believe.
Now you can see me looking at my wall and the wall is looking at me. I know it is a mystery for humans to encipher our purpose in wall watching, but we are not just watching. We are conversing, exchanging our thoughts and transcendentally meditating on the meaning of life and walls.
Only today the sun’s rays illuminated my wall. The rays rebounded off the wall, sent a signal and I came running. My wall was lonely, and the sun woke her up. The wall needed companionship, someone to stare at, and I arruived to tend to the needs of the wall. We are many felines that adopt our own walls. Walls need followers, they give us a purpose in life. Never ask what you wall can do for you, but what you can do for your wall. Have you noticed dogs never have their own walls. Yes, well that is obvious, they would not show as much respect for a wall as we felines.
