Language Tips from a Well-Spoken Cat, Part II

April 23, 2014

My home is filled from top to bottom with books, which means that my cat Pappy has spent his entire life cuddling up amongst thousands and thousands of pages.

It turns out that all this language has rubbed off on him – not only has he somehow learned to talk, he’s developed outspoken opinions about writing and grammar – and he’s not afraid to share them (as you can see in this past Ketchum video).

Recently, he spoke about a topic that troubles even the most seasoned writers: the commonly confused differences between the words “lie” and “lay.”
