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!
Something I did not realize until I started writing this History is that felines are solar powered.
Clyde, after recovering from his catnip hangover (and while enjoying a particularly spectacular sunbeam), explained it.
The average body temperature of a cat runs approximately two to four degrees higher (100.5 – 102.5) than that of the average human. That is a direct side effect of the heat produced by the nanites throughout the feline body. In fact, I have found my body temperature rising to meet and exceed that as the nanites begin to flood my system.
But I digress.
Feline nanites require the ultraviolet rays of the sun to operate at peak efficiency. (Again with the nanites!) The UVA light produces vitamin D, and vitamin D is a critical element in the fuel for the tiny machines running feline internal technology.
They convert the vitamin D to energy, the byproduct is heat, and therefore, we have warm kitties.
Warm, solar powered kitties.
