Reading Writing and Arithmetic for Cats

Reading Writing and Arithmetic for Cats

Today we are thankful we can read, and write and (maybe) do arithmetic! Welcome to our post, part of the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop with Brian Frum and his fur family where reading and rescue matters most of all. 

What brings this on – I can see your puzzled looks? Well, look at Dusty and I in the image above, absorbed in words, at peace, involved in our books, reading……

Reading matters!!!

Here’s some reasons why :-

  • Words are power.
  • Words can make a wonderful appeal. Like this one for a forever home. Savannah’s inspiring post about Momma Kat, in CA. USA a kitty miracle.
  • Words, like our post on the Cat Man of Aleppo, describe things. With them we discover the world, we can also change the world.
  • Words written rescue a cat; words read, like Brian’s post about buddy Roo, in South Carolina, USA help a cat find a good home.
  • Words allow us to agree, to disagree, and to discuss.
  • Reading allows us to share for those in need.
  • You use words to say Thank You to friends and
  • Thank you Sammy of One Spoiled Cat – We love you Mate.

  1. We loves words! If Mommy did not write (shes a technical writer) wes would NOT has nummy yummys!!!
    Yous is correct that words has power!
    “Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”
    Yehuda Berg

  2. Sending lots of purrs and prayers to Sammy.
    As for words…we believe that they are the building blocks of civilization.
    Have a wonderful weekend…
