Does anyone remember this show? What does this show have to do with education you ask? Well, I’ll tell you . . . today my family became foster parents for two kittens. These kittens were from the streets of San Francisco or at least near there. Here are pictures of our new additions:
They are both males and are approximately 10 1/2 weeks old. They have spent their first day in our family playing with each other. At the shelter, they were kept in separate cages so I think this was reunion day for these two brothers.
These boys are inspiring me! I have all of these ideas floating around in my head for a future pet unit. Plus, I want to write some mini-readers about the adventures of these two guys.
I need your help with naming these cuties. My family has been talking about names today but we can’t find any that “fits” these guys.
Cat #1: He loves to play but hasn’t learned how to share yet. When he gets ahold of a toy he keeps a tight grip. No one is going to take his toy away from him. He is kind of a unique cat because he was born with extra toes. He didn’t want to pose for an up close picture of his feet so I found this picture on the internet to show you what it looks like. It seems like he is going to be a people
person cat. When he’s not busy pouncing on his brother or jumping on my computer he enjoys being petted. His fur is fluffy and I think he might end up being long haired.
Cat #2: He has very sleek, short fur that is extra shiny. He looks like a panther when he walks. He frequently crouches down and pounces on his brother. Many times he is jumping from a high place to
attack play with his brother. The two boys rolled around all over the office today. My office now looks like a tornado hit it. He was getting very rough when playing today so I put him in timeout in a pet crate. He cried loudly for his brother. He quickly learned his lesson and played more appropriately afterwards.
Although I originally thought this would be a wonderful learning experience for my daughter, I quickly found out that I had a lot to learn, too. I grew up on a dairy farm with many, many, many cats so I thought I was an experienced cat-mom. Do you know this book?
Today I learned there is a big difference between a city cat and a country cat. I don’t think my country cats were near this playful. Some of this could be due to these cats living in a cage at the shelter so our office seemed like a big open space. A cat on the farm is used to wide, open spaces.
I would love to hear your suggestions of names for our “boys”. If we choose your name or names, you can go shopping at my TPT store. You can choose 3 lesson packets and I’ll email them to you.
