Yesterday I made the decision to start looking to bring another cat into our household.
This isn’t an easy decision to make. I’ve had two writers’ cats over the decades… Opala and Yoshi… and well, I miss having a writer’s cat. And it’s not that the other cats in the household aren’t loved and adored because trust me, Harley lacks for NOTHING. I just bought morsel cat food because she decided pate wasn’t to her liking last night so now we’re gonna donate about 23 cans of pate cat food because she turned her nose up at it. The cat lacks for nothing.
But she’s not a writer’s cat.
It’s hard to describe the difference. Maybe it’s the company they give or the opinions they have. Harley has no opinion about anything other than her food, toys and well, chewing on the dog’s butt while he’s eating. I need an opinionated cat. I think that’s the gist of it. And a cuddler isn’t a bad way to go.
So, the search begins. I have a prospect I hope will turn out. I’ll let you all know. In the meantime, cuddle those around you and well, I’m going back to wording.

I hope you find a helpful writers cat 🙂 I have a puppy who sit at my feet when I paint. He bites my toes when its break time aka belly rub time. He’s very opinionated and freely offers advice in the from of grumbels and yips. There’s nothing like a project buddy. Best of luck 🙂
I totally get the difference. While we had three cats, Beth was the one who actively took part in things and made her opinion very clearly known. These two…really only thing they have an opinion in is their food and that’s it. Occasionally come in to bother me for rubs but no input into things from their part. Good luck with your search
