  13. May I add a comment, Miss Mad (raising paw)? I find another trick is to pretend to be hard of hearing. Let the humans say your name over and over and just ignore them and keep napping. Works every time.

    Thanks for the booster chair. It's giving me a paw up to the buffet!

    Your pal, Pip

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well done Madi we are going to go and find a sun puddle now and get a quick nap before popping over to attend the other classes. Nice one. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. WOW! That was way to much learning for me girl! Think I will just go and take a nap in my Cindrella Coach! See ya later.

  17. WEll that sure was such a good class. We sure are glad that Smoke and Joe didn't try the napping while we were sitting on them. They are pretty darn comfy. Madi, your Mom has been so very busy. Our Mom had to change her undies, she laughed so hard. Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sorry I can't take off my hat....I have hat head and then I will look weird....and I don't want Puddles to take my football so I will just hold on to it.... So how do you like teaching? Quite the class you have, my friend! Hey, someone is drinking beer under the desk again....not tattling....just stating a fact....

    ReplyDelete
  19. Dis nappin class is a breeze. I tinks I will major in nappin when me gets to college.

    ReplyDelete
  20. you are so very talented Madi, this is quite the lecture and tell mom she did a great job pulling this together so you could teach.

    ReplyDelete
  21. OMD Miss Madi Ernie and I are gonna try EVERY ONE of these techniques. BUTT furst I gotta take Ernie out to RECESS. He is really excited about THAT beclaws he has NEVER had recess before.
    THIS was a WONDERFUL Class. We learned soooooo much. Isn't Classroom Management a Pain Under the Tail? Young'uns today ... have NO Respect. Sorry about wearing our tighty whities to class. I was afraid Ernie would get excited and DRIBBLE.
    BRAVO on the SUPER CLASS.

    ReplyDelete
  22. i was interrupted before i read the instructions oh how not to be, and did not finish my comment. i was surprised how many of the class were familiar to me already. and i can see by all these priceless photos of you, that you ARE the right lecturer for this class, you have the nap down really well.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I must have been the silent one sitting in the back. Glad you didn't notice I snuck in because I over slept.

  24. OMC and OMD, Madi! That is the most precise class on Napping!
    I'm worn out with all of the work Mom must have done writing it!
    Absolutely loved the incorporation of all the critters I already know!
    Now you both need to rest up after an exhausting post!!
    Hugs, Kathy

  25. Madi the level of napping expertise was amazing you are a most excellent teaching on the finer arts that are most often forgotten by lay kittens and dogs.

  27. Oh my goodness! Continuing education for kitties! Looks like everything is covered. What a wonderful idea :)

  28. We are all so happy we made it to class, Madi. Today's lesson was just pawesome. We have been practicing our napping skills for many years now but there is always more to learn every day. In fact, we are hoping you can hold class very often because we NEVER get lunch at our home, but we truly loved having the lunch break with all our fellow classmates.

    Psssst, Phantom, wake up, please - it is rude to sleep during class.

  35. So much information....we tuned in through 'School of the Air'. You make it look so easy....but trying to remember all of that, and put up with HER putting the flashy box in our faces....sheesh! It's a wonder we EVER get in a good nap.

    Love the Visuals, it makes everything so clear. Thanks for a great lesson.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
