Write Anywhere is a weekly challenge to realize we can discover the fuel for creativity any place we choose. I love finding different places to get inspired and write, then sharing my experience with you on Fridays. Some weeks aren’t as conducive to exploring, with things like illness or bad weather to keep me close to home. But that’s not a problem when the adventure comes to me.
Write Anywhere #63: Kitty Sitting
I’m a cat lady. I don’t have a houseful of cats; Keeper Hubby nips that compulsion in the bud. I have to settle for Pinkerton. Pinkerton pretty much rules the house.
That is, until it’s kitty sitting time. When Artist Daughter and Saint Nick go out of town, the grandkitties come to visit.
Rei and Misa are Tortie siblings they adopted from an animal rescue group. They are the sweetest little ladies.
They love attention, sitting in your lap, or just laying around. They never do anything wrong.
Pinkerton tolerates them, playing with Rei on occasion. He saves all his affection for his best friend Tres.
Tres is a three-legged Calico rescued from the means streets of Jenks, USA. My good writer friend and I have a deal: when one of us has to go out of town, the other watches her cat. Tres got to visit at the same time as Rei and Misa, and it was a week of kitty shenanigans.
They all got to experience a tornado warning together. Stuffing them all in the closet with us would have made a good YouTube video, I’m sure.
The four of them decided the best place to hang out was at my desk, watching out the window for birds, ducks, and the occasional dog walker.
How did this inspire creativity? I was so immersed in kitty culture for the week that I wrote a children’s story starring a cat. It may only be read to Grandson Destined-To-Be-A-Musician, but that’s okay. I followed my creative bliss. Maybe I’ll have to get all the kitties back to visit so I can write a series… 😉
