Illiterate No More

People, have I told you that Brad can't read or write yet? Let alone blog! Must say the boy is a slow learner. No, he's not autistic or dyslexic, it's just plain laziness. Poor Mama pulling her hair trying to get him excited about the world of letters... Shameful, really!

Recently, while walking towards the North Sydney train station, Mama saw this large hardcover with a picture of Brad in a bookstore! Actually, some other cat that looks disturbingly just like Brad. Same tabby-ness, same green eyes... The only difference is the nose. Brad has an asymmetrical face with some splash of colour on his nose while the cat on the book has a white unblemished nose.



Now, compare the picture on the book cover with Brad's mug in this photo below. See the resemblance?



Anyway, now that Mama has managed to get Brad interested in the book, the next step is to get him interested to also read the book. I'm satisfied to report that Brad's progress is very very slow.

I'll rue the day when he's literate enough to start his own blog. Grrrr......

O my..I love that touch of colour on Brad's nose. Its like as though hes good at smelling perfume!

If Brad is slow at reading then maybe he can learn to leap and dance ballet?

Please help me!!!

Help! Help! Help!!!!

Brad is soooooooooooooooooooooooo elegantly handsome, so much poise and carriage. My goodness! And he can really pose. I think I might be falling in love with this one!!!!

For the record, he makes a better model than the one on the cover...

*cuddle and tickle*

Take care and enjoy your little darlings, dear friend.

Have a great weekend!

Mamasita, he's good at sniffing food, that's for sure! Leap and dance ballet? What a sight! Brad in tutu....hahahahahah......

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Oh no! Masterwordsmith, don't tell me you've fallen in love with Brad? Again? After all my persuasion to do otherwise? Wait till you live under one roof with him...purr purr.....

My deepest apology to Victor! In my excitement upon seeing your comment, I inadvertently click on the "reject" button instead of "publish"....Blame it on the mouse....How can I make it up to you? Blogger doesn't allow me to undo that "rejection". Drat! Grrrr....

Oh well, if he's too lazy to learn to read or write, maybe just get your mama to teach him some tricks... like... ermmm... how to play dead maybe? hehehehe....

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Pi, he's already very good at playing "I want your attention" trick! He never fails to annoy me every single day too....I wish he'll grow out of this naughtiness soon... purrr purrr meow meow meow

Hi Cat-in-Sydney

I confess. I had to come back to feast my eyes on the princely Brad and his regal look.

Er...I hope his other buddies do not know of my prejudiced affections LOL!

Take care and please give Brad a big cuddle and lots of magnum on my behalf.

Thanks!!

Have a great week :-).
