The latest report from “Tulgeywood”

I typed part of this back in earliest July. For those of you who are missing the “kitten updates” posts and such, at least this one is (mostly) about kitties.

About the title of this post: Paul has started addressing Smudge as Jabberwock, because she burbles around the house all the time. “The teeth that bite, the claws that catch… the meow that keeps me awake at night!” And since in the famous poem, the Jabberwock goes burbling through the tulgey wood… Eh. It makes sense to me, anyway.

Topics WordPress thinks I should be interested in today: craft beer, motivation, and zombies. Feel free to use those words as a writing prompt; I’m sure you can think of some way to connect them. 🙂

My cat Tabitha’s children (Una/Floofycat, Mr. Tip/Doodlecat, Ashley/Greybaby, and Harmony/IttyBitty) turned nine yesterday, so for the birthday celebration, all the cats had a treat: shredded chicken mixed with pumpkin puree. Floofycat wouldn’t eat that — she doesn’t like tuna, either, or yogurt, or anything else the other cats love — so I gave her a generous pinch of catnip instead. She partook of that the way she always does: she rolled in it and then groomed it out of her fur. Meanwhile, all seven of the other cats  stood around plates on the floor and ate together, with no hissing or shoving or trying to deny food to the new cats, Smudge and Logan. Smudge ate from the same plate as Ashley, and Logan and IttyBitty (smallest cat no more!) shared a plate.









About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live 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 eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  1. Sugar/Fat Cat would nearly knock me over with his aggressive leg twining whenever tuna was on offer. I can’t imagine fending off seven.
