TGI Friday


Say hello to my little friend!

LOL. Okay, sorry! I was in a Scarface type of mood there for a minute. This is my writing buddy, Kitty-Kitty. Or also known as Diesel from Nighttime Wishes.Yes, Kitty-Litty is really his name. The short version of the story is he showed up in our garage Halloween night. I have an idea he was dumped in our neighborhood, and of course he found his way to us.
Of course.
Within two weeks the hubby is sneaking the cat inside. *snort* Like I’m not going to notice this. So why is this a big deal? Oh man, I am *very* allergic. I’m talking ‘had to take shots as a kid’ allergic. Well, we called him kitty-kitty in the beginning and the name stuck. He actually answers to that now. Or I should say he turns his head and graces us with a look when the mood strikes. Other times he actually does come when called; or so he lets us believe. Walk in the kitchen and he’s your best friend, lol.
Most times he sits next to me on the couch if I’m writing. Now this couch is big enough to sit three people. I tend to sit in the middle and he sits to the left of me. As time goes by he will move a little closer. Okay, no big deal. Then he rolls over so he’s plastered right next to me.
Alrighty then. 
Next thing I know he’s using his hind legs and is pushing on my arm. Now we got trouble. But that’s just the beginning. If I stop and say something he takes that as the go-ahead to climb up on me and, ah, help type. Seriously, the last thing I need is that kind of ‘help’ typing. Oh yes, he likes watching the laptop screen and seeing the curser moving around if I’m on Google.
Or Lord forbid, if I stop and just stare off in space he will meow at me. Meow at me, y’all hear me??? Why do I feel like I’m being told to get back to work? So we, the Kitty-Kitty and I that is, have this conversation where I tell him I am working, that I’m working out a scene in my head.
Can a cat smirk? Oh yes, yes they can. Trust me on this. I’m waiting for the day he rolls his eyes at me. Damn cat.
*grin*

  1. He looks impish, like he's up to something. But such a sweet expression, so it can't be something evil. Maybe just mettlesome. :) Admit it now, you're good friends. That's why he looks so comfortable!

  4. I personally am not a cat person. I got nothin against cats, I just don't like most of them, but Kitty-Kitty is a cute one. You said somethin about him bein your best friend when you go to the kitchen? Well I think my mom's cat has him beat. Bob is a white bob-tailed cat...hence the name Bob. She (yes I said she...when mama and daddy got her from Memaw's house, Memaw assured them that bob was a he...they were shocked when she went into heat) She has mama and daddy trained down to a fine art. She won't eat until one of them walks her to her cat food. She ain't like that with any of us kids whenever we go over and feed her when mama and daddy's out of town. All she has to do is just look at one of them through the window and they jump up and let her in. And the funniest thing I've ever seen is when she sits there and gripes mama and daddy out for about half an hour if they've been out of town for a couple days. You can deffinately tell she'd not happy.

  5. Yup, lol, you are either a cat person or you're not! I'm the same way about dogs.

    I got tickled when I read your comment. It sounded so familiar! I swear, one day soon-when I have the time-I'm going to write a story about 2 guys who have a cat, and tell it from the POV of the cat, lol. I've had this idea knocking around in my head for a while now.

    An editor of mine, just here lately, said there are no such thing as cat owners... we are here to serve the cats. *grin*! And what you wrote shows that perfectly!!! Thank you, lol!
