They didn’t get the memo.

Another reward I got for helping Lisa Shafer with the publication of one of her books the other day was a box full of real cotton cloths for waxing and cleaning my cars.  On her way out she made a comment about making sure the box was closed so that the cats wouldn’t get into them.  Something about the cars not appreciating cat fur all over them.

Well, this afternoon I found this:

Seems one or the other, or maybe even working together, the cats got the box off the table and opened.  After I wash the rags, I think I’m going to remember to put them away in a closet.

Hilarious photo.
But I also love your slight grammar mistake with the pronoun antecedants. The way your paragraph reads right now, you're going to wash the CATS and then put the away in a closet.
I don't think they'll like that very much. ;)

I'm glad the kitties liked my old pjs. I hope your cars do as well.

Sheesh! English teachers. Like I tell my students when they correct my English - There's a reason I teach math.

There, I fixed it. I hope that's more correcter.

Stalin with pink pasties. Good thing I didn't see that right before bed last night. Nightmares!

I used this story today when I was teaching pronouns to seventh graders. They LOVED the kitty story. And they LOVED the washing them and putting them into the closet even more.
Thanks. :)
