How Cats Like to Help Their Writer Friends
Mom decided I should break from the book reviews this week and share how cats like to help their humans write. First of all, I like to either cuddle on Mom’s lap or sit on the back of her chair to encourage her. Of course, when I am behind her head, I am establishing that I am alpha kitty. Sometimes she needs to be reminded that I’m in charge.
Another method I use to help is by walking across the keyboard. You humans always think that we felines are needy enough to want attention when we do that. Really? Maybe we’re trying to show you where you need some serious editing and rewriting done.
And I love to hold one of Mom’s hands between my paws, while I curl up on her lap. This way I have fun watching her try to type with one hand as I pretend I’m sleeping. Oops! What I meant to say is I just want her typing to be slow and purposeful, so she doesn’t make so many mistakes.

I'm such a big help to her.
One of my favorite ways to help Mom with her writing is to put my paws in her water glass and tip it just enough so I can take a drink. What I can’t figure out is why the glass falls over and spills every time. Anyway, Mom has to get up and wipe the water up, thus giving her a much-needed break. She’s onto me, though. Now she sets out cups with lids on them. Oh well.
How does your feline friend or canine pal help you write?
