A-to-Z post: U

U

Once again, I got nothin’ — at least not in the way of story characters.

There is someone I can interview today, however, since her name begins with U, and she’s right here, right now, for real.

Please say hello to Una Juniper, also known as Floofycat…

Thomas: So… How long have you been a cat, anyway?

Una: Mrroowuh.

Thomas: No, I’m not asking you to reveal your age. It’s usually considered impolite to ask a lady that anyway.

Una: Frrff.

Thomas: You’ve been a cat all your life? That sounds like fun.

Una: [floofs tail, says nothing]

Thomas: You’re a writer’s cat, aren’t you? In fact, you share a house with two fiction writers. What’s that like?

Una: Mrak! [head-butts computer monitor] Frrff.

Thomas: Really? And when another cat is sitting in your chosen lurk-spot, how do you handle that?

Una: Hrnnh.

Thomas: That doesn’t sound like a viable plan… Hey, where are you going? Bored already? Fine. Next time, I’ll interview one of your litter mates instead. So there! Psycho cat-beast. [mutters] Didn’t like typing with you sitting on the desk anyway…

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

    Ah yes. Whenever I chat at my cats, this is pretty much how it goes. Occasionally, the cat tosses in a love bite or shoving something off of a table.

    • Una is usually pretty good (as long as I’m not paying attention to her nemesis, her baby sister Harmony), but she didn’t like me typing the blog post because that meant I was not paying enough attention to kitty.
