Photo Hunt - Education (Baby Praline)

Today's Photo Hunt theme is Education.  When I came to live with my mom, she was continuing her education by working on a Ph.D.  Every where I looked, there were books and papers for the first three years of my life.  My mom used to be a middle school math teacher (17 years) and she was a college professor for 10 years.  She now works for a state agency connected to higher education institutions.  Your bet your floof that my mom knows and pushes the value of an education.


Taking a break with a little bath while mom was studying.  I would take her away from her studies all of the time with my cuteness!

Mom Paula:  Praline ate better on Friday.  It's funny (not really), I opened another can of the exact same food she wouldn't eat on Thursday and she gobbled it up!

Praline, it is important to keep her guessing what you want! Of course be sure to eat enough that you don't get little like you are there (cute tho you are!)

Roy said...

Good to hear she is eating again. Never try to out-guess her though.

The baby picture is a treasure, just as the grown kitty is. Praline is gorgeous ..... but I think I've said that before.

O, little Praline is adorable.
Just like her grown up version.
Who could study with all that floofy cuteness around.
Love & Purrs,
Mom ML & KC

I am glad to hear that you are eating, Praline! I am like that too - some days I like certain flavors of food and other days I hate them.

Keep her guessing Praline!

Simba said...

Great post for the theme for today! Praline, you are continuing to educate your Mom every day. She may be a math genius, but you can prove to her that she doesn't know everything about you yet!

Hannah and Lucy said...

It's a wonder you got any studying done with Praline being there. Mum says she would have been watching her instead of looking at books!! We hope both of you have a great weekend.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Father Tom said...

Such kitten cuteness! Cats are great company when there's studying to be done. We can sense when our moms need a break and then turn on the purrs and the charm!

Glad you're feeling better, Praline!

Hugs,
Tom

Mom Paula, kittehs jerk us around with their food preferences! The other day I was cleaning out the freezer and found four tubs of homemade chicken pate that Bhu would NOT eat six months ago! I defrosted them, gave him a bit, and now he won't eat anything else (including Appetizer)!! ISH! I feel your pain! xxoo Patty

Marg said...

Maybe if you aren't leaving food out any more for her, she is now getting hungry. At least we hope she is getting hungry.
Wow, you were so cute when you were a little gal Praline.
Still got our paws crossed for you. Take care and have a great Week end.

Hi Praline, I'm just checking out your blog. It seems like you have lots of fun with your Mom. I hope you start feeling better and I can't wait to read your posts!

Ayla, Iza, and Marley said...

Oh we do that eat/not eat thing alla time. Just when he thinks we like something an buys a case of it, we stop eating it fer a while...

Heh-Heh!

Eric and Flynn said...

Weren't you ust the cutest! Glad to hear you ate better yesterday.

Mumsy, Chancy and Company said...

Oh, Sweet Praline we are so glad to hear that you are eating again. Keep it up and get all better. What a cute little baby kitty you were. And what a beauty you grew to be, you are gorgeous!Hugs and nose kisses

The Creek Cats said...

An education is very important and your mom is super smart!

Glad to hear you are eating better, Praline!

KarenMcG said...

Well, we're thrilled to read your Sweetie (Praline) is gobbling up the goodies!!

And what a cute look down picture lane--Sweet Praline was so little.

Although somewhat late, Paula, congratulations on your Ph.D.

Brian said...

Once a cutie always a cutie Sweet Praline!

Angel and Kirby said...

Education is very important. Mom worries all the time that her education, or lack there of, shows in her blog!

Admiral Hestorb said...

Praline darling, we must give some consideration to our mom's who worry so much about us. My mom has wasted even expensive Royal Canin food when I decided suddenly that no, I was suddenly very tired of it.

Let us think about having some consideration for our moms. Let's eat.

By the way, one of mom's three Hunan kits is a teacher. And mom is a Libra too, just as you are.

Hello beautiful Praline. That's my mom's favorite ice cream! Baskin & Robbin's Praline's and Cream Ice Cream Cake is our birthday favorite!

I hope you're feeling better sweetie.

From one Diva to another, Sweet Praline: It is very important to eat your food! Remember I am not just a Diva but also a Mama, so I know!

Purrs,

Karen Jo said...

I never would have been able to study with a kitten as cute as Sweet Praline around. I sympathize with the food preferences thing. Herman does that kind of thing to me all the time. Eat, Sweet Praline, eat! Herman will tell you that it's the best.

MoMo said...

Eat up, sweetie, we both have to! Love your baby photo, you were sooo soooooooooo cute. Still is, mind you.
