The Cat’s Eye Gang

 

You may have seen the tag #theCatsEyeGang on all my photos of the cats who share their lives with me. What you may not know is that they are the inspiration for the characters in my manuscript I am currently working on.

The Tales of The Cat’s Eye Gang has been a labor of love as I have created characters that not only share each of the cat’s names but some of their characteristics. I decided when I began this story that I wanted to include my readers in the process and began a blog to share the story as I have been writing it.

Each post takes us into what I have written for the past few days, unedited, just as I wrote it. The first draft in all of its glorious calamity. You can find it on my author’s site here on WordPress or at its original home on Blogger. I have added the links below.

Tales of The Cat’s Eye Gang 

I am coming to the final chapters of the manuscript and thought now was the time to share the story of how the Cat’s Eye Gang was born. You can see all of the cat’s names simply by mousing over the photos. Enjoy!

Silent Observer

Dominic invites the rest of the world to join him in observing his Auntie as she writes about her life as a writer. Join him as he takes  Glimpses of My World. 

Observer

As an observer of life, I find that things are more interesting outside rather than inside. But then you humans do something that makes me look inward again. Oh, well the sun feels good no matter which direction I choose to cast my gaze.  ~Neko

Star of the Show

Why yes, I am the star of the show. Why watch what’s on TV when you can study my handsome visage. What? I’m blocking your view of a pretty good looking steak. Well, why should I care? You wouldn’t share if you had it.  ~Gizmo

Reach For The Stars

Nope, I’m not touching Dominic’s string, you can’t prove it. Okay technically it is touching my paw, but it jumped out and got hooked on my claw. You believe me, right? ~Neko

As much as I dislike the Texas weather. I do have to admit that we have some beautiful sunsets down here. The sunrises aren’t anything to sneeze about either.

This was my view while letting my niece practice her driving skills in a local parking lot. Good news we survived.

Getting Along

We are still seeing some adversity towards Gizmo, the newest member of the gang, pictured on the left. He tries hard to be unthreatening but the others still see him as the enemy. Take for example Miss CeCe. She has always been this timid fraidy cat but ever since Gizmo came to stay, she has become a how can I put this politely? Screw it. She has become a royal bitch. She will attack him eating, going to the bathroom, even sleeping. I have never seen so many cats be so put off by one cat.

The above photos show CeCe and Gizmo on one of the rare occasions when she is not trying to assert her bitchiness. Poor ‘Mo.

Relaxation Technique

I have this relaxation thing down. What if it hampers a writer from getting her work done? I have fulfilled my duty for the day. Now to make sure I don’t relax so much that I fall off the desk. And to answer your question, yes I have fallen off the desk. Talk about a rude awakening. ~Gizmo

Do You Fidget?

My post today is about the latest fad sweeping the nation. The Fidget Spinner. Do you have one yet? I was one of those people who, when it came out, said that they didn’t need one and would never use one. Well, never say never.

Yes, behold my lovely new toy.  I caved into the fad. Mine even glows in the dark. Yeehaw!

I have to admit there is something comforting in watching the little thing spin. The sound of the ball bearings humming as the spinner gyrates between my fingers. The colors a blur as I manipulate it to spin faster and faster.

I think the reason these things are so popular is that they handle a problem that no one thinks they suffer with but in truth they do. Not being able to keep your hands still. Do you remember when you were little and if you were like me, had to go sit for a couple hours every Sunday to church?  I would have killed for something like this. My hands still smart from getting whacked with the rolled up church bulletin for fidgeting in my seat.

I can’t think of anyone who can keep their hands still. They are always spinning pencils, pens, or rings on their fingers. Something to keep their hands busy. Brings to mind the Bible verse- Idle hands are the devil’s workshop ~Proverbs 16:27. Well, we no longer need to worry because now we have something to keep our hands from being idle.

As an additional benefit. These spinners are great for people with Autism. My nephew was just introduced to them and he loves them. He is starting to have quite a colorful collection of all different types of the Fidget Spinners. Check them out on Amazon.com They have many different types and designs.

Anyway, hope you are enjoying your day. and if you have a  Fidget Spinner, have fun spinning.

This is in no way a promotion of the Fidget Spinner, it is just my own observation.
