Which should concern me more?
 
That my daughter (8) read a bedtime story to my cat (for his 8th nap of the day)?

Or that my cat listened and looked at the pictures?

Cute LOL

:lmao: Cool cat. Mine always just want to sit on the book.

I wouldn't be concerned about either! It sounds adorable! I wish my bunnies would sit still for stories. They just try to chew on the book and toss it aside.

:lmao: Too cute. The teacher in me says, "As long as your DD is reading..."

Sounds like something my DD8 would do to her cat. :)

Mine, too.:lmao:

OP -- I think you have a very advanced cat!! And a very sweet daughter for wanting to read to him......

I think she traumatized him. It was a book about dogs, and he's meowing in his sleep. lol

You should be very proud of your DD for doing such a good job at keeping the cat's interest, and very proud of your cat for being the smartest cat in the world and having such a great attention span.

That's cute don't be concerned. It shows your daughter and cat have a close bond. My friend's daughter used to read and sing to their cats. She used to do a lot with one of their cats who was dying. The cat seemed to find comfort.

:rotfl: I think my kitty is on his tenth nap of the day, and earlier he insisted on plunking down right smack in the middle of the newspaper I was reading.

Your daughter reading to an attentive cat would make a cute photo!

I know!! I'm kicking myself for not having taken a pic! The lil angel is awake now...grooming himself in anticipation of nap #9, I'm sure.

DS learned to read by reading aloud to our kitty. DS is now 18 and still talks to Dexter like he understands him. Who knows? He might;)

There is a program now where kids read to dogs because it helps the kids improve their reading. I imagine a pet cat would work just as well. :goodvibes Animals are non-judgmental and don't even notice if we mispronounce a word or something. I read an article that following some children who were reading to dogs and the children all improved their reading skills so that some were well above grade level. Plus, it's just plain cute to watch. Enjoy!

-Dorothy (LadyZolt) (who, just as an aside, read "The Lord of the Rings" aloud to my daughter who was too young to read it on her own, but my pet dog also "listened" to the story every day. So now I tell everyone that I love that book so much, I read it to my dog! LOL!)
