Another Monday

I couldn't sleep last night worrying if I was too tough yesterday, but honestly, I do feel like a person has to say no sometimes. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all just live together without ever having to say 'no' or 'you can't?' I mean, I preach peace and love, but even I have my limits. It probably stems from my childhood where I was the most polite, quiet, rule-abiding child known to man. So, pretty much any kid acting bad gets on my nerves. And kids who act REALLY bad turn me into the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld. "No soup for you!"

Coco has figured out how to get out of the box, even after I tried to make the opening higher with taped-on panels. So now . . . kittens are running wild!!! It's never going to be enough for Coco. No wall, no door, no gates, no windows. She wants out, and out is anything that she's not in.

Grape plays kind of rough with her brood. It's quite scary to see. She grabs them with her paws, and wraps her teeth around their neck. Then her back feet start kicking, like she's killing a bunny. There's been a few times where I felt the need to intervene, but I've also seen where the kittens seemed to enjoy it and I just stay back.

All this kitten talk has probably scared off a huge percentage of bloggers. It's that crazy cat lady blog! What can I do? I could talk about writing every second. I could give you a play-by-play of every word I type, or the loathsome thoughts that run through my mind after reading back a day's work. Do you want that? No, you really don't. I can tell you about marketing. It's going fine. I have a blog tour set up, book reviewers have gotten back with me. That's about it.

Now back to cats!


Coco


Picasso

And kids!

Are you still here? I thought you'd flatlined. Tomorrow, I PROMISE I won't talk about cats and kids.

  1. I'll take Picasso... I love Tabbies. Nice pix of the kidlings; they'll be all grown up before you know it!

    1. "I'd like to send this to France." MEOW.

      "Lady, do you have any hazardous, or breakable items in that box?"

      "Uh . . . not in the complete definition. Let's just say it's not a bomb." MEOW!

      "Lady, do you have a cat in there?"

      "Meow. I don't know what you mean. Meow, meow. I'm practicing for my Meow Mix audition. Meow, meow, meow, meow. How is it?"

      "Lady, do I smell cat pee?"

      "No way. That's just this new lotion I'm using: Eau de Picasso. So . . . send it first class, to Cro."

    1. I could if I put them both in a box and fed the kids cat food and the kittens fruit loops. Not that I've done that. Yet.

    2. Okay, I would never actually do that.

  5. Your kittens and kids are adorable and I can't imagine you losing any readers because you write about them. I have became a crazy cat lady of late and my kids are looking at me like I have moved a little closer to senility. How can anyone resist the sweet face of a child or a little kitten.

    1. It's only going to bad for us when we start having conversations with the cats : )~

  6. Flatlined? Naw. Every now and then it's good to remember that there is a little something more to life than writing. Maybe not a whole lot for some of us - ahem (myself) - but cats and kids are a nice change of pace.

    1. There's nothing wrong with writing being your all. In fact, I think it's great.

  7. More kitten talk! Please! I swear I won't get sick of it.

  8. Dear Amy, being a cat lover, I enjoy your blogging about the cats with whom you live. Today a book written several years ago by the cat with whom I lived was published. I posted about that today on my blog.

    I'm intrigued by your saying that you've been contacted by reviewers. How wonderful! Congratulations.

    Peace.

    1. Actually, I contacted them first and they contacted me back. I was trying to be concise, but ended up sounding like they magically sought me out. Sometimes brevity isn't my friend. No, I definitely did all the work of contacting them first. I'm going to change that line now. ^

      Your book sounds lovely. I saw the cover for it on your blog and think that Grape looks slightly similar to your beautiful angel.

  9. What does Henry think about all of this?

    1. He thinks I spend too much time playing with them and barks the whole time just to be annoying. Grape doesn't seem to like him around the kittens, though I've only ever seen him be gentle. Poor Henry.
