If a CAT was your teacher......

I've just discovered a lovely post, written a few days ago now, on Wounded Bird's blog - entitled 'If a DOG was your teacher', it was sent in by Doug.

Now being more of a cat person myself, I simply had to look at the flip side of the coin and see it from a cat's point of view, so .....

If A Cat Was your Teacher, you'd learn things like;

* Worry about courage, cleanliness and furballs

* Christmas trees are meant to be climbed

* Avoid cleaning your private parts in public places

* Always make sure the lid is down on the toilet before jumping on it

* Look in to people as well as at them

* When depressed or confused, try lying on your back with your legs in the air; sometimes the world just looks better up-side down

* Run and away and hide the moment you hear any group of humans speculating about whether cats always land on their feet

* Surprise the entire household by unrolling all toilet paper at night

* When kneading someone's stomach, stop just short of drawing blood

AND, perhaps most importantly of all

* No matter what you've done wrong, always try to make it look like the dog did it.

Comment:- I must confess, there have been times in my life when, I'm pretty sure, the world would have looked better viewed up-side down - know what I mean? Of course you do.

I should like to point out here that some of these captions actually came from a cartoon book, long since misplaced. However, those highlighted in blue are the observations of either myself or a friend who also happens to adore cats.

Oh, Petty, this is delightful, truly. Just really, really good. And you did it yourself. It isn't a copy and paste job like mine.

I can't tell a lie - some of these ideas were from a cartoon book I once had and can no longer find, the captions I'd obviously jotted down in a note book. However several did come from myself and a friend who is also a cat fan. I should make this clear on my blog.

Very cute no matter where it came from.
