Cat Thursday - "I Want Yawning Goof"


Welcome to the weekly meme hosted by The True Book Addict that celebrates cats; their foibles and humorousness and the joy they bring. You can join in by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you made or came across, cat art or share with us pics of your own felines, then post your link up at The True Book Addict.

I have A LOT of pictures of Goof on my cell phone; he's my furbaby after all. :D I sometimes share those pics with the kids in my classes. When they're upset and can't be consoled or helped, or at the end of the day when it seems as if everyone else's mom and dad is arriving BUT NOT THEIRS, I pull out my phone and we look at Goof. This year, their favorite picture so far is this one. I was trying for a profile pic but he yawned just as I took the picture.When the kids first see the pic they think he's roaring but then I  explain that he's really yawning.

  1. Cats always seem to want to yawn when they're pictures are being taken! Goof is a cutie though :)

  2. Did you know that cats and dogs sometimes yawn when they are stressed--it can be a nervous reaction besides being tired? That being said, he is a big cutie and I love that photo!

    1. It works very well. Most kids like animals and they love hearing my stories about him. One girl enjoyed them so much she even had an imaginary cat named Goof. :D

  6. Too funny! And it's so great that you're able to comfort the kids in that way. Cats are always a comfort. =O)
