Companion Cat

Cats are dangerous companions for writers because cat watching is a near-perfect method of writing avoidance.
Dan Greenburg, American author

I feel like I have sat in the living room chair for two days straight, computer on my lap, writing and re-writing a job application. Let me re-phrase that, my back feels like I've been sitting in a chair for two days straight. Through it all, Cat has kept me company, stretched out across the back of the chair. Although she can be a distraction, Cat helps me maintain a sense of perspective. "Don't take life too seriously," she reminds me. "Watch my tail curl in a question mark. Isn't it time for a treat?" Indeed it is. Thank you, Cat.
