For my class this summer, there is a lot of reading. I hate the textbook, so it makes it more difficult.
We were told that no assignment could be retaken without a valid excuse. Family, work, etc are not excuses. Medical excuses with a note will be considered.
The instructor did not mention cats sitting on your textbook as an excuse. Maybe the photo below will help convince her?
Inky climbed over me to sit on my book as I was reading it. I guess I could get 3/4 of the page read, but that would give me a 75% grade at best on the test.
I eventually moved so I could look at the power point on my laptop at the same time as I was reading the text book. Inky came back to help warm up the keyboard on the laptop. I struggled with her a bit until I convinced her to sit next to me, not on me. We’re both much happier that way.
The artist mentioned in the above linked article is a cat rapper. He raps to cats, and about them. I missed the actual live show, but the interview here entertained me. I hope the live show was good. The cats seemed kind of unimpressed, but I’ve never seen a cat behave so well while getting a bath.
I don’t understand why cats are so fascinated with sheet changing day. Usually, I have to move Inky a few times while changing sheets. Sometimes I just end up throwing the blankets over her so I can get it done more quickly.
Yesterday, it was Mini who was the issue. I moved her about a dozen times before calling for reinforcements. Mini usually isn’t a person cat, and my presence offends her, normally. I guess the call of clean sheets was too much for her. I had to call the family to help keep her out of the way.
What is it with bedding? I thought it might be the smell of the sheets right out of the drier, or maybe the warmth? The sheets had been washed the week before and stored away, so it was neither.
The above linked article tells 5 stories about times when cats in libraries made the news. I have heard about Max multiple times, and there’s a longer story about him floating around the internet somewhere.
The other stories are also cut short but they are still interesting.
According to the above linked article, February 19-23 is Drink Wine with Your Cat Week. I seem to have missed it, but Inky is always willing to sit quietly with me while I read and have a glass of wine, unless she has better things to do. I guess I’ll have to make sure I get to observe next year’s celebration.
I wrote my what are you reading Wednesday post earlier this week, and figured out how to schedule it. I planned on touching it up a bit before actually posting it, but it decided it was good enough. All the info was there, but it wasn’t exactly in complete sentences. It got posted on Wednesday, and that was my goal for the year. So, I guess I started out ok.
I am really enjoying my kindle/library book and hope to finish it today. I woke up because of coughing from asthma and allergies, so I cancelled my other plans for today.
Today isn’t going to be as much of an adventure as I thought, but I can at least attempt productivity. I managed to feed the cats so far. They appreciated it.
