The Importance of Cats

A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It’s a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys. ~Barbara Holland

My cats are very  important to my writing. I use them…

To organize notes.


To keep the keyboard warm.


To provide rejection therapy.



Pro tip: If you are ever stuck in a (political, religious, sports) conversation with a writer  that you want out of, just bring up cats.  You can then sneak away unnoticed while he or she is rhapsodizing about the cute things Lord Vader  got up to last night.
