A year ago I took on two gorgeous kittens that had been rescued by my author friend Kylie. They have had quite an impact on me ad my writing. I was not a cat person but now I can feel myself slowly turning into the mad cat lady. I love their company. They are the perfect pet for a writer. They do not disturb me while I write and demand I take them for a walk, they barely need me apart from the basics of of being fed and watered (way less demanding than my children.)
They were the inspiration for this poem when someone told me that when cats blink they are sending you a kiss. There is now a lot of blinking going on in our house.
You will find KITTEN KISSES at the wonderful blog Australian Children’s Poetry.
