Greetings and salutations! Please enjoy this selection from A Brief History of Space Cats, and the Care and Feeding Thereof by Sarah Ever. Written by the main character from Space Cats from Space, these entries form a resource for feline companions to help them ease the transition from cat “owner” to their true role as caretaker and, possibly, human slave. Please enjoy!
Space kittens are exactly like the kittens you thought you had from Earth. They’re cute, adorable, born with their eyes closed, and as a result of that can absorb a vast amount of information in a short amount of time.
Shortly after a feline’s birth, its nanites dive into high gear. The tiny machines have spent the entire gestational period forming systems and integrating with their hosts. The few days when kittens are unable to open their eyes is a prime opportunity to shove information in their young, still-forming brains.
As a result, while the kittens will learn behaviors such as hunting and how to suck humans into their web of adorable fur and mews from their mothers, all the back history of their people and their true purpose here on Earth is gained early on.
I mean, they’re still cute.
But they know a heck of a lot more than their age may suggest thanks to those little nanites.
