the cat who writes

Write, take naps, and take another nap

Every Cat Needs a Clubhouse

Obviously a cat needs food and shelter. And several litter boxes. But a cat also needs a clubhouse.

Charlie, my assistant, and I hold our weekly meetings in my new clubhouse. We don’t have a door we can close, but we rarely talk about anything that the other cats or Mrs. Hodges can’t listen too. When we have secrets to tell, we just whisper.

Martha, my bodyguard has arthritis, and can’t walk up the stairs anymore

Martha, a dog and my dearest friend, has arthritis.

She couldn’t get up on her hind legs on her own. My typist, Mrs. Hodges, had to help Martha up. Once she was up she could walk, but it was scary to see my friend so weak. Mrs. Hodges thought Martha might be on her last legs. They are her only legs so of course they are her last legs.
