My cat is hoping to be included in the next edition, which she'd prefer be titled, "Cats and their Writers."
To me, having a cat has always paired nicely with being a writer, in that it feels like something that goes together. Not that this makes any sense. If anything, my cat is probably incredibly frustrated about how often she competes with the computer for my lap. And I get incredibly frustrated when I lay out notecards or typeset page drafts and she runs around on top of them.
But we belong, she and I, the cat and her writer.
