Dubby, you are one smart little man to get an A+. I don't think either Truffle or Ouzo would do as well. I'm sure they wouldn't. Perhaps they will come back later and try, but first they will have to stop fighting. Right now they are fighting and sounding like a small herd of elephants.

Hey Dubby
I took your test as a practice test. I have to take the make up test. Did you know that there is Cat School On line now? I help Giver of Greenies all the time with her classes.

Hey I gotta go. Some girl cat is trying to steal my kibble!
