Monday Musings With Sassy: Human Education

Kitties - Sassy here.  With all of the CatOlympics and parties going on, I have not been able to post a Monday Musing post lately, and believe me, I have been musing alot!  Here in Texas, the human school is getting ready to start up again.  And this has me musing. 

Okay, the humans like to think that they are the "superior species".  Wait, hang on a minute, I have to wipe the tears of mirth from my eyes!  But lets compare the education process for cats and humans. 

Every store here in Texas is filled right now to bursting with "school supplies".  To go to school and learn, the humans need notebook paper, pens, calculators,etc.  We kitties start learning with nothing, just our fur and brains.
  1. We kitties start learning right from birth.  The humans don't start school until around five years!
  2. After about six weeks of learning from mommie cat we kitties are done.  The humans must go to school for a minimum of 12 years (unless you are from Arkansas, then I think it is about 6 years, MOL!).  So lets see that is 6 weeks for the cats versus about 687 weeks for the humans. 
Kitties learn important things like litter box use and creative nip use.  The humans learn things like:  Little Johnny needs to go east to New York, the train traveling west goes 70 mph....blah blah.  Who cares?  He wants to go EAST, screw the westbound train. 

Humans!

LOL @ Sparkle!

Oh Sassy, you are so right! I could not 'gree more. It's a good fing those Human kittens are not too bright, though, because my Human has been a teacher for almost forty years. If she had been depending on kitties to supply her students, she woulda had to go and learn sumfing more useful, MOL!!

MOL, I almost wish I were still in school, I would be so tempted to use your 'screw the westbound train' answer! Love you Sassy! You really know your stuff! But of course you do, you finished your learnin' a long time ago!
