Twix the Cat, and writer Joanne Sher — 8 Comments

  1. Many of my horses and pets have ended up in my books, so go for it! 🙂

    In fact, though the conventional wisdom is that one should never have a pet snake in a book, our son’s pet albino corn snake, Ssssid, was a significant part of my very first published book, Her Sister’s Children. The heroine’s orphaned nephew had issues with all of the turmoil in his life, and Ssssid became the boy’s pet, Igor. The first line of that book was, “If she’d known about the snake, Claire never would’ve left New York.” 🙂

    But I definitely think a fluffy cat with personality would be a better bet!

    Thanks again for joining the blog today!

  2. Ahh, Joanne – we lost our 18 year old Mitzi several years back and since then our 13 year old Katy and 15 year old Stormy – each time Mick says “no more cats, I can’t take this anymore….” We still have 4 and got our new Christmas Kitten this past Christmas….GRIN Nothing better than a furry-purry! Thanks for sharing yours with us!

    • Our kids were inventive. 🙂 Andy’s tarantula was Ned. One of the last of the bunnies was Cadbury. Then there was Zane Grey ( a gray pony), Michael Jordan (a pony), Sir Hiss (a cockatiel with anger management issues), and Gimmis the guinea pig, whose triplets were Nibbles, Kibbles and Bits. There were dozens of other pets–furry, finned and reptilian–but these are the first that come to mind.

    • Marijo, so sorry to hear about the loss of your kitties. 🙁 It’s always so hard when that happens.

  3. This brought back memories. I remember Twix. Awwww, bless her heart. Like others who posted, it brings back memories of my Henry. There are certain animals who are so special. They will live in our hearts forever, special little furry friends sent from our loving Father.
