My Homeschool Cat

Whisker Woes
I'm really missing Minga... so I thought I would share a cute photo of her from before we moved out of our house. She was helping me grade papers. Ever so thoughtful of her! Cats are so smart. As my daughter always says, "Cats rule and dogs drool." No offense to you dog-lover types out there. I think dogs are cute, but WAY too much work. Cats are so much more like people - each with his/her own personality.

Famous Cats
My favorite scene in Stewart Little 2 is where Snowbell is trying to convince Stewart to give up on his search for the birdie. Stewart's little red car breaks down and smoke billows out of the front hood. Snowbell surveys the damage and says, "Oh, boy. This is a sign, Stewart. Like the burning bush. Except it's a carburetor and I'm not Moses... but it's tellin' us somethin'!.... Let your people go!"
Stewart the mouse ignores Snowbell's speech and retorts, "I'm not giving up."

"Oh, why not?", Pleads Snowbell, "Giving up is fun! And look at all the time you save! I'm telling you Stewart... if more people gave up, there'd be fewer wars."

Seems like something a cat would say if they could talk (other than "Hand over the tuna and no-body gets hurt").

We love cats here, too, and the cat's presence in my daughter's studies is just as important as her books! You might enjoy this post from a couple of months ago:

The Scarecrow Festival looks like a delightful way to enjoy a fall weekend.

Thanks Patricia, for stopping in and commenting. Nice to know of another cat-loving homeschool family. :) Thanks for the post link, as well!

Yes, I wish we could go to the Scarecrow Festival this year, but I've spent way too much time on the road this past month - putting almost 3,000 miles on my vehicle! No driving for me!
