A Literary Cat

Mr. Rhett: Currently reading?! (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"Outside of a cat, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a cat, it's too dark to read." ~ Sign at Lilac Hedge Bookshop, Norwich, VT (Variation on Groucho Marx quote)
Mr. Rhett loves books. He loves to touch the pages with his paws, rub his head on the corners, push them with his nose and sit on them, particularly if I'm trying to read. He's also fond of newspapers, magazines and writing paper as well as cereal boxes. Maybe the pictures on the cover entice him to make a book his own or perhaps the scent of the cereal draws him to the box. Surely he's not really reading is he? Who knows! I'm still trying to figure out why he's so attracted to closed bags of scone mix.

Mr. Rhett will be joining the other animals at this weeks Friday's Ark and will join the party at the Carnival of the Cats on Sunday. The Carnival is hosted this week by Begin Each Day. (end of post)
