World Domination 101 - Gracious and Humble

Never too busy to sit and talk with my Minions.
Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

Not long ago, the humans in this state elected a new Premier.  The day he was elected, he promised that he would be "gracious and humble" in running the state. That was just before he started slashing public service jobs, cutting out funding for health and environmental groups, taking away rights for marginal groups, and lots of other things that made my humans say bad words.

I must say that I am also a gracious and humble ruler.  I take the time to care for my minions when they need it.

Only today, I offered to help Mum. She was having chicken salad for lunch.  I said if she wanted help, I could take care of the chicken part for her.  She said she could manage by herself - she's very independent for a human - but the offer was quite genuine.

I even allowed Mum to get out of bed this morning to go to her doctor's appointment - even though I had been using her as a warm pillow. It is important to allow humans to have some freedoms, as long as they don't get hurt or lost, and as long as they don't forget to fill the Friskies dish.

Last night, I allowed Mr 18 to share the blanket I was using. Admittedly, he was under it before I found it, but I was still very gracious in allowing him to remain under it.

In fact, my being gracious and humble is enshrined in the International Anthem:

God bless our gracious Cat
long live our humble Cat
God save the Cat!

Give him some stinky fish
Friskies and lots of cream
long may he rule the world
God save the Cat!

You might find it useful to learn this anthem. It will be used on all official occasions. 

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
I humbly and graciously remain,
Mr Bumpy,
Supreme Feline Overlord.
