As you can tell by my blog header, I've got a bit of a thing for black cats. If you follow me on Twitter you know that I lost my pet of almost 15 years a few months ago. Big Cat was a great writing partner, and a buddy who sat on me pretty much all the time. I called him my muse because he usually camped out right on my chest while I wrote, and I looked over his big hairy back while typing. His purr kept time with my tapping fingers, and we made a great team.
I started visiting shelters a few weeks ago, looking for the next buddy to crack out a novel with. But it was too soon, and while I met some wonderful kitties, I think part of me was still looking for MY cat - even though I knew he was gone. So I gave it up for a little while, deciding I wasn't ready yet. It wouldn't be fair to bring someone home expecting them to be someone they weren't.
Two days ago I popped by the local shelter to see a cat I'd spotted online. Sure, black cats can be found anywhere, but I need a certain type of personality to write with me. I brought this fella home, and as you can see... he seems to be working out.
