It’s April 1 (almost)
by Sharon Ashwood on March 31st, 2010

My human is out of service. I am her cat, also known as the Demon Lord of Kitty Badness. I have no idea why she calls me that. Not one.


Today, I am blogging on her behalf, which means typing on the silly black box on her desk. I wasn’t very happy about it until I figured out that there are other things this black box does, too. I went to eBay and bought 5,000 pounds of fresh mackerel on my human’s credit card account. I hope she doesn’t mind. The fish should be lovely and smelly by the time it’s delivered—just right.

But I’m supposed to talk about her writing. What do I know about that? She comes home, throws food in a bowl for me, and sits at the black box. And sits. And sits. Sometimes she makes faces at the screen, or laughs hysterically. That’s really disturbing to watch.

Human plots are stupid.

“He’s a hero,” I say. “Make him pounce on something. He’s probably hungry by now.”

Instead, she makes her hero strut around in tight leather. No pouncing there, unless he does himself an injury. Like, get a fur suit. It’s comfortable and looks good in all seasons.

If that’s not bad enough, half the book is talk. No wonder it takes 400 pages to tell a story. It would be two sentences if a cat wrote it. Whack the villain on the head; jump on the girl. What’s left to do? They talk about beastly Alpha males, but a real beast would have the whole business wrapped up by the end of the prologue: Whack. Girl. Fish dinner. The end.

I guess that’s why cats aren’t writers.

The human will be back soon.

    I, Minou, the cat-owner of Annette McCleave, for once feel inclined to comment. Normally, I prefer to lounge on the keyboard, not type on it. Although I do enjoy adding “character” to my human’s writing from time to time.

    Fish is good. Pouncing is good. Especially on anything that comes out of that paper producing toy she calls a printer. Excellent post, Demon Lord.

    You write the book, Demon Lord, and I will use my human’s apple box to buy it from Chapters. I’ve already trained her to read out loud to me, so I’m all set :smile:

    I, Monster Girl the kelpie/black lab, am at least the same color as the Demon Lord’s soul, which counts for something in my fiendish attempt to reclaim the world from kitteh badness… Ooh, look! Squirrel!
