“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
Oh, indeed. It's simply amazing what one cat, let alone two, can do to interrupt the flow. But this one tends to cause the most disturbance. Ain't he cute, though?
What about you? Any pets around while you write? What other sorts of disturbances do you have? It seems that the second I get really going in something, I have to yell, “Nimitz, get down!” He's usually trying to climb something he shouldn't.
Have a great weekend! I'm off to wine and jazz at the Bishop Museum tonight, so getting a good start.
oh he is lovely. 🙂
Thank you, Cynthia. That’s my Nimmy. Or Nimmy Pimmy as I sometimes call him. Mike catches himself saying it and then glares at me. Not very manly for a man to say Nimmy Pimmy. LOL!
He doesn’t replace Miss Kitty, but he sure helped with the hole in my heart. Thumper is still Thumper, but Nimitz is so much like Miss Kitty it’s amazing. He reminds me of her and that makes me happy.
What a sweet picture! He’s beautiful.
My writing routine is disrupted now, without Shadow at my side, but Storm scratching at the window to be let inside (I posted a picture of that once) makes sure I stop to take coffee breaks. It’s part of my rhythm.
Thanks, Terry. I hope you find comfort in Storm. I know that losing a kitty isn’t easy. 🙁 My life is very full with Nimitz around. 🙂 It takes time to open your heart again though.
