{caturday} teach your cat to read

oh yes. you are not mistaken. i happened upon this little gem a few weeks ago whilst i was browsing the shelves of my local pdsa charity shop.

i actually didn't buy it at first, but it was one of those 'instant regret' moments when i left the shop without it, luckily it was still there when i went back a few days later!

i'm not really sure what i was expecting, as i didn't inspect it too much in the shop, but from first appearances of the packaging alone i expected it to be pretty naff. naff but fun.

i was happily surprised to find some really beautiful illustrations inside by sophie backall

the pack contains an alphabet bowl/bookstand combo, for kitty to enjoy some leisurly reading whilst partaking in his favourite activity (second to sleeping)

i especially love the cat dictionary in the back, my favourite entries are :
catacomb, n. grooming aid.
catalogue, v. to stretch and claw at a piece of wood or furniture.
catharsis, n. private parts of a cat.

i hope to use this with all my future cats, to have the most educated felines in all the land

in related news *and any excuse to talk more about cats* have you seen the horizon special 'the secret life of cats'? if not you should definitely check it out whilst you still can! truly fascinating
