When I say we…

I mean me, well, but not really.  Meet my crew…

Hugo (Hurley) was named after the LOST character. He’s a 25 pound, eleven-year-old Maine Coon rescue. He pretends to be a high brow book snob, but I totally see him reading over my shoulder at my cheesy, mushy, paranormal YA romance reads. He’s not fooling anybody.

Loofah Sponge (yes, his full name is Loofah Sponge, it’s on his chart at the vet’s) is a two-year-old, blue point exotic shorthair rescue. He’s a complete romantic (who I’ve seen cry on occasion at the end of a good book) and loves a fast paced urban fastasy or dystopian.

These are my friends. They help me write by keeping me company, providing important inspiration and much needed breaks when my head is about to explode from editing, block or too many ideas at once. Do you have a writing/reading buddy? Who or what is your muse? Do you believe in them? I love my pets and am passionate about animals. Are you? Tell me about them, and what they mean to you. I’d love to hear! 🙂

Next time you can meet my dog Scout and my horse Tucker, but that’s for another day …

    I had two kitty reading buddies but now I’m down to one…my pesky little Oliver. He keeps hinting at me to write a book about him and his adventures. I keep telling him a book about a lazy cat, whose only adventure each day subsists of walking from the computer table to the litter box to the couch, would make for a very boring read. He, of course, protests, knocks a pencil off my desk, and struts off with a flick of his tail.

    My two Australian Shepherds, Toby and Charlie, and my hippie dog, Jahlee, hang at my feet most of the day and occasionally bark their opinions and ideas. At least their scheme to irritate Oliver in some way is a bit more adventurous than watching Oliver sleep.

    Those are some big ol’ cats, well Hurley is anyway since he takes up most of the chair! Hurley has the most beautiful face. And Loofah Sponge, what’s not to love about his perma-frown? LOL Love your literary kitteraries.

    Oooh! Kitties! I have one solid black girl named Dizzle. Had one named OJ (for OJ Simpson because he could get away with anything) who was 25 pounds. 🙂 All my kitties are indoor ones but he got out when my girls were about 3 months old and he never came back. 😦 He was THE sweetest.

    Dizzle on the other hand … is quite the snob. We call her our 5-second cat. She will allow you to pet her for only about 5 seconds and then she’s off to do whatever she wants to do.

    We also have two guinea pigs. Oreo and ‘Not-Oreo’. Yes that’s on his chart at the vet but we DID finally name him ‘Rascal’ and it FITS! 🙂

    Love animals. 🙂 🙂

    I have two, Oscar and Winston. Beautiful long-haired black and white brothers. Winston ensures I take regular breaks by sitting on my keyboard and refusing to budge, and Oscar keeps me clam with love and hugs when I can’t find the right words. Cats make wonderful writing buddies. 🙂

    Aw, I love hearing about everyone’s pets. They all sound so wonderful! 🙂

  • miriamforster

    Yay kitties! I have a black rescue kitty with super soft fur and a fondness for playing tag. Also, I saw you got a RAOK shoutout, congratulations!

  • Julie Antonovich Reece

    Aw, yeah for people who adopt rescues. So nice to meet you, Miriam 🙂

    I have four pussies: Storm (grey & white), Fluffy (scruffy tortoiseshell), Daphne (brown/black tabby) & Grey (grey when he was born but now black with a couple white hairs, lol). They’re all house cats and they all drive me nuts and they only ever get in my way when I want to write, lol. I have to say though that Loofah Sponge’s face in that bottom pic made me giggle. 🙂

    Are those cats as fat as they look? Yikes. What are you feeding those things?

    Any one of them would make a tasty snack for my poodle. Heh Heh

  • Julie Antonovich Reece

    I’m sorry to say they ARE as fat as they look. They are lazy and won’t move let alone play. Don’t let Hugo sit on your poodle or he’ll be toast. LOL 🙂
