Antisonja the Antimuse

Our smallest and craziest cat (Cleo, a.k.a. Antisonja) is helping me write by smashing her face against mine repeatedly and drooling on my shirt. It’s not improving my word count, but it does have a certain entertainment value.

    One of our cats helps me write by sitting next to the laptop and patting my face with his paw when I’m paying insufficient attention to him. All cats I know help read newspapers by sprawling on them when the reader is paying insufficient attention.

    My folks have a cat who grooms hair. I’ve never been able to decide if she likes to do it, or if she despises shampoo smells and is overcoming her disgust to groom us in an act of selfless love.

      Cats have a multitude of uses, not all of which are obviously useful to the merely anthropoid.

      I read most of my news online these days, and I often find cats standing casually between my eyes and the monitor.

      Back in college, our dorm cat usually helped me with homework after one hour. I guess she figured if it took me that long, I was struggling.
