Harsh Critic

Have you ever had a critic who was so harsh they actually told you to stop writing? Well, that's how I interpret this:
It's that glance of disapproval which really drives the point home, really makes this criticism sting. Et tu, Ginger? Do I now have to evaluate all of my life choices? Luckily, I was able to buy her off with a saucer of milk. She's a harsh critic, but she is bribeable.

Ah, dear Ginger. Cats are always honest about what they think :)

Have you ever known a cat that will allow you to center your attention on anything else? We had a marmalade boy, Charlie, as a family pet (he taught himself how to pee in the toilet), and he was infamous for plopping himself down on whatever book or newspaper you would be reading.

Well, I have two cats. One is a weedy, needy, and greedy girl who will do everything possible to make sure I am paying attention to her at all times. She will stomp across my stomach, my keyboard, and anything I am using if she deems me insufficiently worshipful.

The other girl is younger and more independent so, apart from the occasional stroll on my desk (maybe once a week) and walking past my leg to scent mark politely, she's pretty chill. She likes attention, but she doesn't *crave* it like the other one. I suspect she thinks the older one is a bit wet ;)

The felines, they come in all kinds :)
