Photo Hunt - School (Baby Praline)

When I first came to live with my mom (almost 15 years ago), she was in graduate school working on her Ph.D.  I used to climb on her computer all of the time and mess up her papers and books.  My favorite thing to play with were pencils and mom had a lot of those because she was teaching mathematics to college students while she was working on her degree.


Mom also had these really thick books that she had to study while she was in school.  I was always there to give her a break from her studies.
 

One of the funniest stories about me and mom's school was when I attacked some of the mathematics exams my mom was grading.  When she went to give back the exam to her students, there were teeth marks in the paper.  Mom said she told the students that instead of the dog eating their papers, that I showed them what I thought of their work by biting their papers.

Oh my Praline, we want to give you a little kitty hug. You sure were cute when you were little but now you are gorgeous. Good for you to put the bitey on those papers. Hope you have a super day and week end.

We think you were telling your mom what you thought of her working at home when you left teeth marks on the papers.

Praline, I think you have always brought so much happiness into your Mom's life. There's nothing better than a face full of fur! And all those purrs! I still help my Mom with her applique. 15 years old? You don't look a day over 6.

Teeth marks in the students' papers, huh? Just makes everything a little more interesting.

What a cute little kitten you were Sweet Praline...you were a Pralinette!

Love seeing that old computer :-)

Kat's Kats said...

LOL!! I always had to explain the bite marks on my papers. At the time we had both a dog and cats, but it was usually the cat.

I have to say that I'm sure Praline was correct in her assessments!

I missed re4ading your post yesterday, Praline! Good for your Mom! My Mom also has to grade papers, and sometimes I sit on them and make butt prints, or crumples. She always tells me she will be embarrassed when she has to give the papers back!
