Feline Writing Buddies

   On Friday, I lost my writing buddy Casey. I have been lost and
   heartbroken since. He was an older kitty 16 years old to be exact. He
   has been my friend and writing buddy for a long time. I learned how I
   took for granted my feline friend and writing buddy who motivate and
   inspired me to be my very best. And how I miss him now that he’s
   Casey was a wonderful feline who made it so much more inspiring
   and motivating to get my writing done each and every day. He lay
   either at my feet or on a chair beside me and made sure that I got my
   writing done each and every day. And he insisted that I do my
   On Friday, I took him for a routine physical and to get his yearly
   shots. As the Vet examined Casey, he found a lump under his chin. I
   never saw it or felt it before. He ran x-rays and other tests and found
   that Casey had a virulent form of bone cancer. I was devastated and
   still am.  He had to be put down right away.
   So, here I sit in my study, ready to write, but my muse isn’t here.
   As I sat longer and reflected, I realized that my Casey wouldn’t have
   wasted much time moping about. He would probably grieve and then
   he would move on.  So, I think I will do the same. I will take a few
   days to grieve the most wonderful feline I have ever had and then try
   to move forward.
   I tell you this story fellow writers because I think we all need
   writing buddies that give unconditional love. Most writers have a dog
   or cat that they can rely on. I know for myself, after a period of
   mourning, I will get myself a new little feline so that he too can
   become my writing buddy.
   I sure hope if you don’t have a fury friend that you will acquire one
   as well. You will never regret it!
