3. THE FOLLOWING TWO EXTRACTS ARE ABOUT THE PLAY AND EXERCISE HABITS OF CATS

PLAYTIME FOR KITTENS

Kittens seem to live to play. Actually, each day is an important adventure which helps the kitten in her development of intelligence, dexterity and her relationship with humans and other animals. The mother cat generally provides the stimulation for the kitten's development.

Play and exercise are important for your kitten's development. Buy her a toy - a ball, rubber mouse, or anything she can play with and not be injured. Her hunting instincts will develop; her reflexes will become sharp. Kittens and your cats, when treated correctly, grow up to be happy, curious, emotionally stable and sure of themselves.

KITTENS AND CHILDREN

Young children can often hurt a small animal because they fail to realise what can cause pain to her. It will not occur to a small child that picking up a kitten by one of its legs, or pulling its tail or making loud noises around her can actually hurt the animal. You should explain to them, well before the kitten's arrival in your home, that their pet should be treated gently. With very young children, supervision is essential at all times.

(a) Points for discussion in your groups

(i) Discuss a game and an exercise whereby you develop your kitten's instincts and reflexes.

(ii) Name different safe toys that your kitten can play with. Also discuss different deadly toys.

(iii) Use your dictionary and explain the meaning of the following in your own words:

  • dexterity
  • relationship
  • instincts
  • temperament
  • reflexes
LO 2.4.2

CRIED DIED TRIED MAGNIFIED CRY DIE DECRIED SATISFIED DENIED REPLIED LIED VILIFIED IMPLIED PACIFIED MORTIFIED DRIED WISE EYES

When her pet, the cat,
Marie cried and cried and
Her mother said that, when pets
it is natural that you should

My grief, my pain
Because I never really

My laziness should be
Indeed, I should be
To tell the truth, I sometimes

And now I feel quite
But mother soothed her, and she
Her tears away, and
Her daughter, saying, "Dry your And let this

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
