This adorable little kitty is the latest addition to my writing life. His name is Elmo, he has a tragic back story, and he keeps trying to catch my fingers while I’m typing. Could a writer’s cat be any more perfect?
This also brings me closer to becoming one of my favourite characters, Uncle Rogi from Julian May’s Galactic Milieu trilogy. I’ve often dreamed of being Rogi, with his second hand science fiction bookstore, his demanding cat and his laid back lifestyle (at least by the standards of his galaxy-shaping family). Next step, develop psychic powers.
