When Cats Take Over

A crazy busy week, so sharing a funny video. I think I need a cat in my office, don't you? I'm reminded of Sassy's "cats rule and dogs drool" remark in the movie Homeward Bound. Remember that?

Also wanted to let you know about a contest called "Pitch Madness" coming up this March. A friend just clued me in, so I thought I'd give it a try--practice pitching my novel and see if my first 250 words are strong enough. Check out the link below.

  1. LOL, those cats are adorable! "The Focus Specialist" especially had me cracking up...

    And I think I remember seeing others do Pitch Madness before. Good luck with it!

  3. Pitch Madness is EPIC. I participated in 2012 and took home several requests--mostly from publishers, not agents. Water under the bridge...

    That was an AWESOME video. My kids (we home school) were standing over my shoulder, giggling at the whole thing. Thanks for the laugh.

  5. When cats take over? What do you mean when? I thought they already did.

    Good luck with your pitch.

  7. I'm allergic to animals with fur...horrid asthma. Long for a dog...used to have a cat - didn't know how sick he was making me until years later...sigh.
    Thanks for visiting my mermaid poem and your very nice comment! Much appreciated.

"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
