Study aids

Top o' the mornin' to you, feline friends and human pets!

Lately, my human pet has been studying a lot for a test called G-R-E. It seems like it is going to be a tough test as the pet has listened and studied various words and worked on many mathematical problems.

Of course, being so brilliant, I decided to help her by sharing my knowledge!


I decided to use familiar objects to review basic mathematical concepts with her. I believe this will be successful since visual clues typically jog her memory. For example, while she was reviewing fractions, I developed the following problem for her:


Who wouldn't remember how to perform operations with fractions while having tuna as an aid?!

Brilliant, I say!

Excuse me for now, though, friends, as that tuna looks too tasty to ignore!

Yep very tasty, and very good visual (and smell-ual). Hope you got the tuna juice from it too!

Heehee, Zeus. Too bad they can't hire YOU to write that test. Good luck, Mom! You can do it!!!

Subtraction leafs you wif less, an I haf a feeling she now has less tuna! My beans took that nasty test bout 15 years ago (WOW, they must be really old) an said sum of the study aids were harder than the real fing. You're a good helper, Zeus. Smart moms always haf a smart cat sleepin on their books.

Cats don't do fractions. If a can is opened the entire can must be given. No withholding Stinky Goodness from a cat.

Did you get to eat the visual aid? And have you tried reviewing subtraction using treats? It could help her even more!

We never GET a whole can of tuna to help with our math. Mom eats the tuna and gives us the tuna water to share. 1/3 of water = how much each? NOT ENOUGH!!
