There's a New Sheriff in Town

I am now going to demonstrate to you the kind of intelligence and cunning it takes to be a king.  Remember me telling you about how much Adam has been bugging me because he wants to be the court jester of StreetCats?  The boy has been on my heels constantly and just doesn't get the word NO!  And remember me telling you that I'm so tired of my subjects, both feline and human, bugging me with questions and requests and complaints, etc., etc?  Oh my gosh, my brilliance in solving both these problems at the same time amazes me!!!

So here's the deal.  I'm making Adam my sheriff!!  Okay, let me explain.  Adam will be an important official in my kingdom and will leave me alone about the court jester business.  This is a very positive thing because, quite frankly, I was beginning to think he was going to try to overthrow me and take my throne!  Now some might question my choice of him as sheriff because he has no claws on his front paws.  But the boy can bite and isn't afraid to use his teeth!

So here's the deal.  Yes, Adam will still be staying close to me . . . could find no way around that.  But he'll have his attention focused outward, discouraging any creature who wants to interrupt my meals or my naps.  Adam is happy and I'm no longer being badgered!  Brilliant!!!  So I hereby introduce Adam, Sheriff of StreetCats!
Now, as an additional demonstration of just how smart I am, I would like to tell you something that I bet you didn't know.  Of course humans recognize how superior cats are.  How could they not?!  And one of our most superior attributes is our whiskers.  We use our whiskers to navigate and man, that is so useful!  Well, humans thought they could copy us and in the 1950's they tried to put whiskers on cars.  No, I'm not kidding!  They called them "curb finders" or "curb feelers" and they were long, stiff wires installed low on the body of cars.  When a car got close to the curb these "whiskers" would make a loud noise so the driver would know he was close.  Well, you'll notice cars don't have "feelers" these days.  Give it up, humans!  You'll never be a match for felines!!!
