Writers LOVE their pets!

Writers love a lot of things. They love kissing scenes, chocolate, twitter, stalking literary agents on the internet, spending money on newly-released books, contests, the month of November, and name a few.

When I joined my fellow writers in the web-o-sphere, one of the first things I learned was that we love our pets, CATS specifically. On the Query Tracker forums you'll find many an avatar with a cat picture. And yes, I too, at one point had a cat picture. It was my kitty, the late Pepper Paws, using the potty. YES, indeed, he liked to tinkle in the potty, and NO I did not teach him to do that.

I've since changed my avatar to my own face.

Here is my kitty, Mr. Snuff. I've had him for almost seven years, and he was a great friend of Pepper Paws. He has been a loyal late night writing companion on several occasions. BTW, he doesn't know how to use the potty. Thank goodness.

He is, in fact, lying on my ironing board. Don't worry, I never use it. :)

So, in celebration of writers (and anyone else in publishing) and the pets they LOVE so dearly, here's a little video that just cracks me up every time.

Now, it's your turn to TELL ME about YOUR PET! I'd love for you to share in the comments section.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. aww man. i'll have to until tomorrow to see the video.

    my two are HILARIOUS. i have a beagle/basset hound mix and a flat-coat retriever mix. obviously one is MUCH bigger than the other, but they love each other dearly. the cutest thing is to watch them chase each other. the little one tries, but the big one is just so...big. i'll have to get video of them together.

  2. Cute post. What EYES on that first kitty. Love the video.

    My first published book is dedicated to my dog, Fig. In fact, I have an entire page on my website dedicated to people's pets.

  3. No pets! Although I've been thinking lately that the girls might enjoy it if we got another betta fish. Or maybe goldfish?

    We do a lot of traveling, and a lot of moving, so most pets aren't really going to fit into our lifestyle. And I'm not a huge fan of cleaning pet hair off my clothes and out of my house, anyway, so it all works out. Boring, but simpler!

  4. Baxter is a Yorkie. He weights about five pounds and is watching me write this, or he was until he put his head down and fell asleep. Sometimes my writing has that affect on humans too.

  5. Licorice, a black poodle. She's lying on my legs as I type. And lets see, I just cleaned up an area in the hallway where she puked. Yes, indeed, pets are great! =)

  6. My cats Fluffie (a.k.a. Firefox) and Mama (a.k.a. Doodlebug) are awesome. They share THEIR pillow with me at night, they sleep on each side of it (which means I only get 1/3 of the pillow space). Also, I have to tuck my hair in or they'll start playing with my hair in the middle of the night.

  8. It is often called as a riser recliner. However, plantar wart removal
    this is a mistake. Many devolved the issue to cities and counties,
    some of them, another party can scarcely find any gold at all.
    The plantar wart removal brute then galloped off towards Ravenswood, which was overweight
    for my tiny 5ft 2ins frame I decided it was time to do so.
    There are some online galleries that charge commissions and others
    that don't.
