C is for Cuteness!

C is for... cuteness! Just the thing to get us through this month's Insecure Writer's Support Group. A good chuckle or awww goes a long way towards balancing your self esteem!

I try to keep this blog from getting swamped by cats, and usually succeed. (Though if you'd like to snag a Kedi's Paw award, feel free!)

But it's harder to resist on Twitter, since my iPod camera is only two clicks away...

Here's Sam, lead singer of #SamandtheFoodBowls.
That's the name of his band; someday we'll get that hashtag to trend!

My favourite part of Twitter is still the interaction with authors and other notables. I still fan girl squee when I get a reply.

I don't remember what was going on back in January, but I suggested that a puppy might help, and author Sam Sykes obliged:


Later, I was able to help Wil Wheaton's wife when a headache hit:


Then there are other animals, for instance, a goat from Joan of Dark:


Kermit:


And a squirrel:


But it always comes back to cats. Here's photographer Kyle Cassidy. Er, I mean his cat, Roswell:

I love the idea of a goodbye photo!

Cassidy also has a wonderful flickr group devoted to MorningCatface. I've joined, and tweeted a few photos myself, but haven't had a chance to upload on flickr. Here's Roswell again:


As for ROW80, I'm doing my darndest to get Druid's Moon in shape for beta readers.

Meanwhile, here's some more MorningCatface:


Lead singer of Sam and the Food Bowls


Frodo, the genius behind the curtain

Hard to feel insecure with so much cuteness! :)

Cats? I don't know if we can be friends anymore. We'll just have to rely on our mutual affection for Neil Gaiman.

I heard a quote from an actor once about who was his worst co-star. He said, "kids and animals. The cuteness factor would steal the reviews."

I can't stand it. Those pictures are too cute. Must. Look. Away. I can't. I have to look!

Yesterday my son decided we need to have LOTS of cats. We told him the three we have were enough but he didn't agree. Now he's on a campaign.

I so miss soft, silky, shedding cat fur. Don't get me wrong, the poodles are nice, too. ; )

Why don't I have a goat in a coat? Besides being adorable, it also rhymes.
I'd love to take home that little baby goat! What a sweetie :)

Biggest squee of my life occurred after Billy Corgan acknowledged something I said on his Facebook page back when he had one :)

I love the cuteness pics! And yeah, I'm a big cat fan. hehe

Thanks everyone!
Well, guess what, Joshua - we might be adopting a dog soon!
Ooh, Trisha, I just squeed vicariously through you :-)
