The Ancient Egyptians nearly had it right when they regarded us as Gods. Where they fell down was entombing us along with the Pharaohs who worshipped us. While it was OK for a while catching all the mice and rats that were down there too, it wasn't a good idea to let us pass before our nine lives were up. Maybe if we'd been allowed to carry on we could have educated more Longlegs and Egypt would still be a power. Maybe they'd still be worshipping us too which wouldn't have been a bad thing.
Napoleon loved his horse but if he'd loved a Superior maybe his bad temper wouldn't have sent him off to try and claim Europe as his own and help himself to the treasures of Egypt. ( Serves them right for forgetting to treat us as Gods). This reminds me that I should tell you about Longlegs Sciences. It's been proved that Longlegs feel much better and less angry and stressed if they can stroke a Superior. This leads on to Superiors Science that maintains every Longlegs household should have at least one Superior to stroke then maybe they'd stop fighting each other and shouting at each other. When they've all settled down maybe it's time they resurrected the idea of worshipping us again.
Now I don't like to brag, but I'm quite a handsome chap. Though the Egyptians of old used to have statues of the Superior Bastet to worship,(I am of course a direct descendant) I'm sure that there's an idea that she's a little out of date now ( I'm spreading it). Therefore I offer myself as a model for the new Longlegs to worship even though my natural modesty would normally not allow this. But, we need to act quickly and I think it would be better to use me than waste time holding competitions. Of course you would always need a reserve and my friend Ginger says he's willing too ( Though I suggest you look to Smokie or Gizmo first, maybe even Millie).
So, anyone interested in making a model of a Fine Superior would be welcome to contact me via this blog, please don't expect an answer in a hurry as I am sure Thousands of Longlegs will apply for this honoured position. World Peace is within your grasp here when you all worship me and my Superior fellows and allow us into your homes.
My dear Sir Oscar,
I had no idea that your level of education and knowledge of history was so impressive. I support your ideas and yes, your natural beauty and distinctive personality would make you the perfect model and Long Legs could do worse than choose you; I would suggest keeping the Bastet image alive as well, since she is still very much with us.
Your friend, Wise Cat
Ever since I went into retirement, I was waiting for someone to take my place as a deity. Since you are my direct descendant, as you know, I simply cannot think about a more suitable candidate. You have my blessing, my child, and you can count on me for advice and help as needed.
