Helping by Princess Cat

You’ve probably noticed that once a week we writing buddies write a post so the human can have a day off.

We also help at other times.

The other day, the human was sitting on the recliner in the lounge room, writing. Sometimes she writes at her desk in the art and craft studio, but that room doesn’t have air conditioning. Winter is cold this year so the human has been setting the air conditioner on warm and staying in the lounge room.

Well, Fanta saw her writing with help, and jumped up on her lap to lie down. At first she put her head right in the computer, but then the human helped her move behind it instead.

I saw that Fanta was already there helping, so I got up to help too. I climbed over the keyboard a few times to type a couple of words, but mostly I just sat and supervised, and got a couple of kisses and cuddles to thank me for my work.

It’s hard work being a writing buddy, but Fanta and I have got this under control.

Princess, a sealpoint ragdoll cat.


Princess is a seal-point ragdoll cat. Her hobbies include naps, waking the human in the middle of the night, tummy tickles, knocking things off shelves, evading grooming, and petty theft (stealing paintbrushes, pincushions, etc.) Her special skills include jingle ball and fluffy mouse chasing. Her key goal in life is to be adored by everyone, but not actually touched unless she specifically requests it. She is never allowed outside, partly to protect wildlife, partly to keep debris out of her hair, and mostly because she is so naïve she wouldn’t survive five minutes outside. Also known as Pretty Kitty and Snuggle Cat.
