Cat claims she is victim of animal abuse—a case for the SPCA?

Photo of cat looking at a crumpled table napkin. Thought bubble says, SPCA! Help! She beats me with a napkin!

Drama queen Ursula the social media cat claims she is a victim of animal abuse. It’s true, I do flick at her with a table napkin when she tries to muscle into my porridge before I’m done. But she’s quick and I don’t think I’ve ever managed to touch her with this floppy instrument of doom. Also, her thick fur coat protects her. Is this a case for the SPCA? You be the judge.

    Feline felicitations to you, Ursala. I do, however politely suggest that you may be slightly exaggerating your problems. I would lay off the porridge in any event, as it is not so great for your kittenish figure. I know, easy for me to say, but I do wish you the best and bet your whiskers that you are appreciated and loved more than most. Judi

      Dear Judi, I will use your response as a model of tact and lay off the napkin attacks. However all Ursula says in reply is, No comment. Sorry!

  2. It’s quite obvious that Ursula is a much neglected and abused pussy cat and should be given extra treats every single day………………Fluffy Felix.

      Oh no…is that a class action on the horizon?

      1. Sorry about that. I left my laptop logged in and it was pounced on while my back was turned!

        Vigilance, eternal vigilance, my friend.

      3. I’ll be miaow careful in future!

  3. Porridge? She tries to steal porridge? I’ll send my cats over to give her a lesson on the good stuff to steal like a nice pork chop.

      There’s a reason I only allow one cat at a time in my home, and that’s it. I’ll be watching the roof, too.

    2. Rachel McAlpine says:

      Your criminal cats are banned from my place. And from my roof. Here dwell the deserving genteel. Well, one of us, and I’m working on the cat.

      1. 🙂 Well, cats be cats!

  4. The kin of naps sounds more like a cat’s life than an instrument of torture.

  6. Sounds like Ursula’s humans are just trying to get her to eat healthier stuff. It’s all good, Ursuala. Tuna tastes better anyway!

      Thank you for your kind words. It’s always worth a try.

  7. She looks SO distressed
