Empowering Little Learners!Hum... what problem... It might be hard to climb being square.

Empowering Little Learners!A certain problem that I believe a square cat might run into is while chasing a mouse into a round hole. Just saying!!

All of our cat trees have round openings. That could be a problem.

ReplyDeleteLife with Mrs. LI think a square cat would have a hard time landing on her feet, chasing mice, and curling up.

ReplyDeleteLife with Mrs. LMy first thought is that a square cat would have a hard time curling up into a ball to sleep. :)

It would be hard for a square cat to curl up and sleep.

Awww, sweet kitty! How will you snuggle on your mommy's lap with your sharp edges? That is a problem!

ReplyDeleteGreat giveaway!

Square cats would have trouble cuddling in their owners' laps, because they can't curl up into a round ball!

Just have to make sure that any toy tunnels are a bigger circle than the cat is square! My guess though is that being square will help keep him OUT of trouble!

It would be hard for a square cat to get through a round door. Thank you

ReplyDeletecandieluster(at)gmail(dot)com

I can imagine it would be hard to hunt for mice being square...I can't see a square cat being able to get into that stealth mode :-)

ReplyDeletekhmorgan_00 [at] yahoo [dot] com

What a great looking book, I would think a square cat would have all kinds of adventures while chasing mice in and out of small round tunnels and holes, and equally challenged to arch their straight edged backs.

ReplyDeleteI follow your blog. I have the book on hold at the library and am looking forward to reading it and doing the lesson with my boys!

ReplyDeleteteresaguel(at)yahoo(dot)com

One challenge of being a square cat would be that you couldn't roll down a hill to get away from a dog. dacoulter1(at)gmail.(dot)com

ReplyDeleteWhat if Square Cat was on a ship that was sinking and she couldn't fit out the round windows?! Or, trying to hula hoop would be difficult too!

Cute book; I would think she might have problems getting places-up or down-because of not being able to roll!

I think Square Cat would have a problem doing summer salts.

I think it would be hard to put on a t-shirt. lol Thanks gahome2mom/at/gmail/com

I wonder what it would be like to sleep - not a lot of variation. Ick! :o)

a round tunnel

ReplyDeleteThat looks like a fun book! I don't know about problems, but I bet a square cat would fit into boxes, which is something our chunky cats love. Square might not fit so well into a lap, though, and laps are very important to a cat.

It would make it harder to chase a mouse down a round hole.

Looks like a great book. Great idea about the cat

ReplyDeleteA square cat might have a hard time grooming herself.

ReplyDeleteA square kitty might not fit with the "in crowd" kitties and be made fun of.

ReplyDeleteA cat can squeeze under and into anything normally. Being square would certainly hinder any of that sort of thing.
