This is my big boy – Everest.  Aka Everii, dumb cat, oy you, and whatever else he might


decide to come to.  Shaking the cat biscuit packet does the trick too.

As most of you are aware, I am writing a novel for SoCNoC (Southern Cross Novel Competition).  I have my laptop set up on the dining room table.  There is a sheepskin there for the cats to sleep on.  Everest doesn’t want to sleep on the sheepskin.  He wants to sleep on my laptop.

There are many possible reasons.  The first one is that the keyboard is warm.  It isn’t.  I know it isn’t.

The second, and more plausible reason, is that he wants my attention.  As if he doesn’t get enough already.

The third reason, and I that I think is the most probable – he is a writer and wants to express himself.

    I am currently of the firm opinion that all pets are out to destroy any goals of productivity. But, that could just be because I am currently annoyed at my, adorable, though incredibly annoying maltese, Madeline. I am quite sure her need to be on my lap has nothing to do with personal expression through the written word, but cats are known to be smarter than dogs 🙂

    I don’t know about being smarter… lately Everest has been sleeping on my son’s school bag and in a cardboard box!
