Happy International Cat Day!
What a great way to start the week, celebrating our favorite furry friends. There’s a stereotype about writers and their cats–I’m not sure you’re allowed to be a writer without at least one cat.
Mine like to be helpful. They make sure I am nice and warm when I hang out in my writing chair, working on something the old fashioned way.
Even when I’m typing they make certain that my hands don’t get cold. Isn’t that thoughtful?
They are deeply concerned for my health. They make sure I don’t sit too long in any one position. They make sure I get my exercise by ensuring I climb the stairs multiple time a day. Knocking things over is a great way to draw me out of the study!
The dears are entirely devoted to my eye health, making sure I don’t sit too close to the monitor and that I use the ergonomic keyboard under the desk, not the flat one one on the lap top. Aren’t they sweet?
They also help me decorate. See how well balanced they are against the sofa table?
They guard my bookshelves and encourage book selection with a purr.
And they help with the chores, like laundry. See how they make sure we can tell the basket of whites from the basket of colors?
And they make sure all my guests feel welcome. One look at that face, one that conveniently matches the decor no less, and who wouldn’t feel right at home?
I’m sure my kitties are not the only helpful ones. Help me celebrate International Cat Day by sharing how your kitties strive to be helpful!
