Thought I’d post a picture of my boys here on this snowy day. These are my writing companions. Usually the moment I really want to get working, they plop themselves next to me and demand attention. Or try to get on my lap. Or lay on my manuscript.
This is Spike, named for the blond Buffyverse vampire. However, my Spike is a big, awkward wimp with no bite who likes to whine, literally whine when I’m not giving him attention. Well, I guess he is a bit like the real Spike in that regards. But he’s just so lovable even when he’s being annoying. Just like vampire Spike.
This is Sammy, named for the serious younger brother in Supernatural. Even though he’s the youngest, my Sammy is the alpha of this house, and usually gets what he wants by being equally demanding and adorable. He always stretches one of his legs out like this. It’s very posh. Sammy is all grown up now, but he was the cutest kitten I’d ever seen in real life. Which is how he conned me into getting him in the first place.
