Teaching the cat to read

Teaching the cat to read
Originally uploaded by alpharat
When teaching a cat to read, it's easier if you focus on a topic they are interested in, like fish.

My understanding is that the process with children is similar, but not as easy.

My cats are illiterate. Their hobbies are keeping freshly folded laundry warm and decorating the front porch with vermin carcasses.

Do you, perhaps, keep company with an elitist cat?

(not judging, not me)

She's not elitist at all, just looking to pick up new hobbies in her golden years.

Are you sure your cat's not a reincarnated relative?

Well you know what they say...
Give a cat a fish and you feed him for a day, TEACH a cat to fish and you've altered the fabric of the space-time continuum and put the universe in peril...or something.

[side note to kitty: It's a cookbook...a COOKBOOK!!!!]

Reading? Hell I'd just be content if my damned cat would hunt a mouse or two. Wait, hunt, I mean KILL a mouse or two hundred, that's what I mean, kill.

Now Moses, he tries, Lord knows he tries, until he gets scared, you know, if there are more than one coming at him, and I have some bold mice, and then forget it, he's off and running to the back bedrooms for safety. Then when the coast is clear he'll come out and act like he's patrolling again, but we all know he's ineffective as a mouser.
