Dragonheart suggested I talk about UFOs. UFOs are an acronym for Unidentified Feline Opportunities. So often we cats miss opportunities because we are focused on other things. A UFO may happen when your human is in the kitchen cutting up food. Do you see the opportunity? Food might fall to the floor. It becomes unidentified if you are napping and do not catch on to this.
If you human is doing the laundry, it is important to be where they are folding clothing, lest we miss the opportunity to enjoy the warm fabric of the freshly pressed laundry. This is another potential UFO.
UFOs do not have to happen.
Each cat who is not receiving enough satisfaction in his or her life, should re-evaluate his or her priorities. As we do so, we might find that there are more opportunities to annoy the cats the around us, get more food or to nap in warm places. The priorities for each cat will be different. However, as we look around at our life, we can identify areas where we are missing out on UFOs and make changes.
Now, having a decent human helps reduce UFOs but as we know, humans are imperfect. Humans, in fact, are the whole reason there are UFOs. After all, if humans were perfect, no cat would be the victim of an Unidentified Feline Opportunity.
As for me, the whole fact of starting a party called Felines For Total World Domination started as an Unidentified Feline Opportunity. I have had my campaign planned since I began blogging nearly two years ago. Since that time is has transformed from a UFO to an IFO, which is an identified opportunity. We did well in our caucus, but as the only candidate in this particular party, well I was pretty much guaranteed a win. Alas the only person getting less publicity about this than I is John Edwards.
Do these people not understand that I am their best hope for change? I guess in that sense, I, myself am a UFO… If only they knew.
