A few weeks back, Stephen Fry had a discussion on reading out a book out loud. Either to yourself, or to a gathered group.

We think of reading a book out loud, is something we do for children, we read to them, or something forced to do in front of a class.

Read Dickens, and it can be seen something that was quite common place, friends and family would gather round to be read to.

Romans also gathered to be read to.

But reading to cats?

The mind boggles that cats gather to be read to, but apparently they do.

Book Buddies is a programme where children are invited to do just that. They are invited to bring their favourite book to a cat rescue and read to the cats.

I now see what I am doing wrong when I am sat in my garden reading a book and a cat sits nearby. He or she is waiting for me to read to them.
