Writers and their Cats

Tortoise Cat Thisbe  - a 'fraidy cat
Orange Cat Rulon, a power napper
Friday is traditionally cat blog day, but I wanted to offer a link an alert reader sent about writers and cats.  Above are my two.  Rulon thinks a friendly act it to give chase with maybe a few swipes of his paw.  Thisbe thinks otherwise.  Mostly they ignore each other.  He always horns in when I try to groom Thisbe.  "Horns in."  A great expression which has been reinforced by observing the feeding antics of the Highland Scottish cows.  But I digress.

The Masterpiece Mystery last night (Hercule Poirot) showed a flat with a crazy cat lady.    I haven't reached that stage yet.  In my dotage, perhaps.

In the meantime, here is the link to writers and their cats. Writers and Kitties.  
We enjoyed touring the Hemingway House in Key West and seeing all the cats with an extra toe.

since Rulon is catnapping he has asked me to point out that 'orange' is no word for the colour of a cat.
Or 'tangerine' or 'cumquat' - they're fruits for chrissakes, and citrus fruits at that.
He deserves a spicy reference - let's say ginger - flavorful, robust (when awake anyhow).

yrs truly, An Alert Reader.

Rulon agrees that "ginger cat" suits him very well. He feels quite robust when awake, which is not all that often.
