Oh, I didn't realize so many students would be interested in taking Feline Hydrology 161b! Please read the course description if you haven't already... I'll wait. Don't forget to come back.
Prof. Tabbycat has asked me, Nina, to answer some of the questions we've received about the course. I'll do my bestest, but I'm only the T.A. Technical questions may require consultation.
- Since we have at least 18 cats already enrolled, there's talk of opening a second session or repeating the lecture next semester.
- We make break up groomates and siblings to improve concentration and reduce classroom disruptions. Rasslin and THOE is for before and after class.
- Anyone suspected of attending class while under the influence of catnip will be sent home (except for the Professor). Any catnip or catnip toys brought to class will be confiscated for later use.
- Cups will be provided in Lab, but you may wish to find your own for practice at home. Remember, non-breakable cups ONLY! If you can't comfortably sip from the bottom of the cup, practice dipping your paw. Oh, and cups must fit under the faucet!
- Hydrology 100 (Basic Hydrology for Felines) is offered every semester. Hydrology 160a and 161a are offered in the Spring, though concurrent enrollment is discouraged. 160b and 161b, similarly, are offered in the Fall. The CATalog has full deTAILS on prerequisites and graduation requirements, or speak with your academic counselor.
- For those who struggled a bit in 161a (Nitro - this means you!) or want extra help, advanced students Moe and Billy Sweetfeets will be tutoring. Zippy may also be available to help, if it doesn't interfere with her PhD work. See me to sign up for tutoring.
Please be aware that some Canine Plumbing labs will be meeting next door. If you encounter some of our... less agile fellow students, try to remain civil. Feel free to hide under the bed until they've gone. Litter boxes are located in the big bathroom and basement. Be kind - bury your waste.
Student Services wants me to remind you that they can help if you're struggling with anxiety, peer pressure, and even insomnia. They offer individual and small group controlled gradual exposure therapy for those with some fear of water. You won't receive course credit for therapy, but it will teach you strategies to help you in many real-life situations (e.g., rain - ick!) as well as allowing you to attend classes in the Feline Hydrology department.
Please leave any additional questions in the comments. Purrs and thank you for your interest!
