Writers and Cats

My cat, (and me,) making a guest appearance in today's blog post at 'Isn't it Romanctic?'

I'm about halfway down the page, my cat appearing with the cats of such greats as Mary Jo Putney, Anne Stuart and Theresa Meideros.

We meet Hemingway's cat.  There's also a beautiful screen shot from Breakfast at Tiffany's. 

I do not know what it is about writers and cats. They just seem to go together.
Is it because cats are graceful and restful? Because they are quiet and do not disturb the writer while she is working? Or is it that they seem to expect so much from us? I don't dare stop working early when I'm under my cat's eye.

. . . 

For the rest . . . see here.  I'm way down the page . . . and . . . ok . . . it's in Italian mostly.  But the cats are fascinating.


  1. I think it's all of those things - and maybe the fact that even when they're being needy, you can still type or write across them. Can you imagine trying to get a story written or edited with a dog leaping about? But then, you'd know better than me [g] I've got two cats...

  2. And they're fuzzy. Do not discount the awesome power of the fuzzy.

  3. And how!
    Mine's yelling at me at the moment.
    "Now! No - o - w!"
