Ferdinand ginger cat -Bastet.

Dear God

Today I have been a paragon of virtue,
Today I have not been cantankerous,
bad tempered or rude,
I have not been greedy, nasty or selfish

I have not complained, whinged or whined,

I have not stolen the left over chicken

-On the kitchen table, only lightly covered and with a whole leg...

I have resisted temptation.

But I will be getting out of my box in a moment and I will really need your help!

If I pray to anyone it is Bast, I am Bastet.

What we need is a homeland, a homeland for Bastets, Felixstowe? No! Catalonia, that's it the very place. Warm, ideal for sunbathing; on the coast, perfect for fishing.

We'll need a constitution, a list of commandments. And I as the founder of this state and a direct descendant of The Bast bast egptian cat god gif(the family likeness as shown by this ancient Egyptian sculpture is testament to my birthright) am in the unique position of being entitled to its draft.

All felidae Bastets will be entitled to citizenship: as long as they're not more handsome than me -which is unlikely.

  • Thou shall eat fish on Friday.
  • Thou shall have a new box every day.
  • Thou shall not be moved (from sleeping on the clean washing.)
  • Thou shall purr six times a day.
  • Thou shall chew catnip.
  • Thou shall wash a thousand times a day -a Bastet's body is a temple.
  • Thou shall practice hymn singing at 2 am and again at 5 am.
  • Thou shall rest for twelve hours a day and sleep for eight.
  • Thou shall convert any ailurophobe Bastists to the one true faith.
  • And on the seventh day rest.

Ferdinand ginger cat the biggest Bastet of them all.
