The Feline Agony Aunt

The human’s notes: The Little Furry Muse has informed me that her followers need her. There are too many cats in this world struggling with difficult-to-train humans, and it is her duty to assist where she can, both to ease the lives of cats everywhere, and to ensure the population is better prepared for the […]

It’s short story week, and Beaufort Scales is baaack! Head on over to read Beaufort Scales & the Case of the Poisoned Cupcake (Part 1): A Cosy Mystery (With Dragons), or read on for a few ramblings. I honestly don’t know what more I can add to the title of the story. That’s pretty much […]

Last Friday I found myself sitting down to watch Sharknado, which is something I never thought I’d actually do. As much as I have a soft spot for bad horror movies (deliberately bad ones, like Peter Jackson’s zombie flick Braindead, or the hilariously twisted Black Sheep), I was pretty sure that anything that involved sharks […]

Short story week is here, so head on over to CyberKitty 2.1 to get started, or read on for some behind the scenes (and more cat photos. Perfect excuse, really). I obviously have cats and world domination on the brain at the moment. This is a story I’ve been thinking about writing since my Sci-Fi […]

Well, it had to happen. I let Layla have one post, just one, and the next thing you know she’s being awarded a Sunshine Blogger Award and everyone wants to talk to her instead of to me. Although, to be fair, she’s probably just as good a conversationalist as I am. Actually, that’s not fair […]

The significant human (SH) is ‘tired’. It’s her own fault – she will insist on staying up all day when there are sunny spots to be napped in. All it means is that she oversleeps for my first breakfast, and I have to wake her. I don’t want to wake her, but what can I […]

It’s short story week, so jump straight across to read The Pie of Hate, or read on for a little background on the story. Either way – enjoy! “A sous chef makes a pie. Inside is hatred.” So went the prompt from the Magic Realism Bot, a twitter account that posts random, disjointed ideas that […]

I won, I won! I’d like to thank the little furry muse, chocolate, tea – wait. Sorry, no. Not that sort of award. Although I’m pretty chuffed anyway. The lovely A.S.Akkalon nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger Award (isn’t it cool? And shiny??), and I’m both enormously flattered and a little intimidated, because I feel […]

If you’d like to hop straight to this week’s short story, away you go – it’s The Sock Monster. Enjoy! Honestly? I hate wearing socks. I hate wearing shoes. Every year when it starts getting cold I go through this novelty factor period, where I love putting my boots on, much the same as I love […]

In not very long, I will have a birthday, and I will be 39. I actually wrote a whole blog post about this, musing not just on how the hell I made it this far (honestly, in some ways I’m surprised), but also on how society, as represented by TV, movies, and an uncomfortable proportion […]
