Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

I have no street cred at all anymore
Not a single person hinted, initmated, or wink, wink, nudge, nudged about the possibility - no matter how remote - that the scratches on my face and neck today were from anything OTHER than my cat.

Noooooo....just a long, deep whistle, and then a puzzled smile with "What did on earth did you do to piss off your cat?".

Sultry single woman with wild side and romantic weekend tryst = 0

Overworked career woman with cats = 6

My life so sucks.

    It's better that way. Scratches on the face indicate some kind of twisted S&M scene that went horribly awry.

    Just don't let their perception of you progress into that of the Crazy Cat Lady. Next Monday, come in with a knee brace and tell people, "I don't care what you hear. The bedroom is no place for a trapeze."

    tfg: That's why I have a stripper pole instead of a trapeze ;-)

    Okay, okay... I am an amateur at stage makeup, but I've given myself a nice-looking black eye before. Just say the word... ;)

    That's six cats?

    Since I've started cat-sitting, the charm of cats is more in evidence. Though I am lucky that this cat of mine is de-clawed.

    Hope things look up for you!

    Geeez maktaaq! Not six cats! SIX comments about the scratches. No, I have but two cats, and they are plenty.

    Yes, six cats are excessive. I have one (temporarily) and His Majesty is enough.
