When you want to learn things, you don’t go to professors or parents or Google. You go to “Sesame Street.” OK, you probably don’t go to “Sesame Street” unless you’re a toddler and your parents want you to learn about letters and numbers, so a representative from the Muppet-filled program is coming to us by way of Simon’s Cat.

Elmo visited the cartoon kitty recently and received a lesson on how cats play — the results of which were posted on Simon’s Cat YouTube page. Simon’s Cat is less explanatory than he is demonstrative in his lesson-giving.

Lesson No. 1: How Cats Play With A Ball

Given the mobility of said ball, the plaything is often lost under things. Like the couch.

Lesson No. 2: How Cats Play With Yarn

Yarn is a fun toy, but be careful. Nearby boxes are huge distractions… which brings us to the third lesson.

Lesson No. 3: How Cats Play With Boxes

Cats love boxes.

Lesson No. 4: How Cats Play Peek-A-Boo

Note: A box is required.

We’re pretty sure Elmo took what he learned back with him to share on “Sesame Street.”
