This cat is very strange...

Last week's prompt for the students in Holyoke was "This cat is very strange ..." I did a couple of illustrations to go with some students' descriptions:

This cat looks like a dog. The cat ears are hanging to the floor, has a long tail but the cat skin is red and blue.

Then there was this cat:

I was in the park and I seen a cat with three eyes looking at a bird.

What did you think when you saw this three-eyed cat?

He has a better chance of catching the bird! LOL

A few students were suspicious of black cats, though when I asked one if black cats were bad luck, she said,
No, cats are not bad luck, they just cats. They are good of seeing ghosts around, though.

When looking for an image to illustrate that woman's writing, I found this fun story about Sable, the crossing-guard cat, who comes out every day to watch the kids safely cross the street to school in the morning and leaving school in the afternoon.

Sable has been watching over the students from across the street for about a year. Tamara Morrison owns the cat. She says one day, Sable just walked outside to greet the students, and he's been doing it ever since ... [Tamara] has now bought a safety vest for Sable to make him an honorary member of the Enterprise Safety Patrol.

The three eyed cat reminded me of the three eyed cook from Venus in the Twilight Zone episode "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?" You weren't a former consultant to Rod Serling, were you?
Neat writing prompt and drawings.
You tagged your entry school volunteering. Like Sable?

I thought the red and blue creature was a dog. Some kind of shih-tzu with long ears.

I love the three eyed cat drawing.

Black cats are among the cutest kind of cat.

I'm glad you thought it looked like a dog, because that's what the student said: it was a cat that looked like a dog.

I love black cats--our cat is black.
