Cats and Writing

Some months ago I started a novella about a woman who attracts cats wherever she goes. This all ties in with the secret she eventually discovers about herself and the man she's been dreaming about...and searching for (no spoilers here!)
Hence the picture of my cat, Bundy (who is in purfect health at 10 or more years of age).
I do intend finishing that story, and three or four other's that need a little TLC. But writing cats (any animal) into my plot has certainly opened my eyes at how much harder it is to get them *right* on the page!

Mel, LOL. Cats! the one thing I know about cats is they just do what they want. I gave up years ago and now our Oriental cat, Morpheous, rules the house. I like the idea of getting him to behave on paper though, it would be the only way, sigh.

I can't wait to read your cat story.

Bundy is beautiful. Short for Bundaberg???

Hey Sandii!!!
Yes, like men you just can't help but love them, hey! (sigh)
Yes, Bundy is short for bundaberg rum, we also have a Ginnie (gin) and a Yammy (purrs like a yamaha)
And thanks for wanting to read my cat story, Sandii =)
