My mews, my distraction

I figured it was about time I uploaded a video to my YouTube account.  What will it hurt this world to have yet another funny cat video?  I figure it’s payback for the wasted hours I spent watching other people’s.  Well, they were good for a laugh and we all know this world could use a little more laughter – as long as it’s not at anyone else’s expense.

This video was taken in 2009 while Geneva diverted our attention from a family gathering.   She has a habit of doing this – especially around dinner time.

Geneva has been a family member, an inspiration and distraction since 2005.  She has especially been a comfort while I worked on the novel and used writing as a form of therapy.  She may be the reason there is a tabby cat character in The Year of the Rabbit named “Tiger”.   In the novel, Tiger is a male tabby who has taken a liking to Aunt Georgette.

Geneva is soft, a little on the plump and furry side and open to pats on the back.  You have to let her sniff your hand before you try to pat her.  She’s cautious and selective.  If she is annoyed or angered, she will not hesitate to use her sharp teeth and claws.  Me-ow!  She is alpha cat in our home, often showing who’s boss to Snuggles, the affectionate and overly-accommodating male.
