Cats are Funny

I have 2 male cats - one born in '99 and the other in '03. The younger one outweighs the older one by at least 5lbs, but he's not the boss.

He's actually a big coward, lol.

Anyway, the younger cat had claimed a box recently. He's been curled up in it every day for weeks and been a better-behaved kitty because of it - until this week. Our oldest and alpha cat decided he wanted the box.

At first, he'd just bat at the cat in the box to annoy him, get him to leave it.
Then, he started getting in it when the other cat left.
This week, they've done a bunch of wrestling again - dominance plays - and Alpha Cat is now sleeping in the box and has been all week.

My poor cowardly younger cat has been restless, like he doesn't know what to do with himself now his favorite place is no longer his. Once again, he's sleeping in the middle of walkways and being a general nuisance.

But I'm sure the dynamic will change again. :-)  Alpha Cat changes sleeping places every 2 weeks.

So, what's your funny pet story?

It's Tuesday and I feel fine.

Sorta. How was your Monday?

Pluses: I slept in, it was MUCH cooler than the weekend, and I watched new "Chuck" and "Gossip Girl".

Minuses: It was the one-year anniversary of my father's death, and I spent several hours on a project that wasn't panning out except in frustration.

In the greater scheme of the month, I'm very grateful for the fans that come to the Facebook page and leave me a note. They're virtual treats, cookies like chocolate chip, or Milanos. Mmmmm, Milanos.....

Prequel short story for "My Once and Future Love". By typical standards, Beth and Jacob should've never been friends, but it's funny what Geometry class and a shared backyard wall can bring about. 12,000 words.

How To Date A Werewolf

Romance can be a hairy business-especially when you're a werewolf.

As the owner of Got a Mate Dating Service, Rylie is more than happy to step in and lend a hand to lonely lycanthropic hearts all over town. No matter how hopeless Rylie might be in finding her own soul mate, she has a knack for helping others find theirs.

Convinced that she is stuck with a family curse, Rylie is positive she will never find her true love. But when drool-worthy Jack Chandler shows up at her door, Rylie wonders if maybe the curse is finally broken.

But Rylie's life is about to become complicated courtesy of the after-dark crowd. When she begins receiving strange notes and harassment from a jilted client, events careen out of control.

Jack knows she's more hassle than he can handle. What he doesn't know is whether she's seriously in trouble . . . or simply delusional.

Rose is also having a contest to win an iPad2 on her site.
