Queries are done! Let’s celebrate!

Feed me!

Well, it’s Friday and Sofia has finished sending out queries for the week. This is a good thing, because now she’ll turn her attention to me. It’s hot here in southern California, so I hope she’ll take me out for a walk…I like going on a harness and leash or in my stroller. As a Sphynx, I love the warmth, even though she complains that it’s too hot. I also love my food. We Sphynx have a faster than normal metabolism, so I eat more than other cats…you know, those weird felines with fur. Sofia will sometimes tell me that I’m a pig because I eat so much. Excuse me, but I’m not a pig, I’m a Sphynx, and I eat a lot because I need to generate extra heat to keep my adorable body warm. You think she’d know that by now, wouldn’t you? I think I’ll go to the food bowl and meow until she gives me some food. That’ll teach her a lesson!


Put down the phone!

This is on my first birthday. See what I mean, I'm cute!

I’m annoyed. Sofia was chatting on the phone to one of her writer friends about this thing called ‘genre’ and how she likes to write in different genres. Well, I don’t know what I genre is and I don’t care to know, all I know is that she was talking too loud and laughing so much that it woke me up! I gave her a look, but she just made kissy sounds and said I was so cute. I am, but that wasn’t the look I was going for!

Now she’s sending query letters!


This is what Hermes and I do when Sofia is writing

Just when I thought I’d get a break and get some much deserved attention, Sofia is now querying agents for her newly revised historical romantic suspense. She’s been working non-stop on the revisions, which takes time away from me, so I was happy when she cried out that she was done. But, alas, it was not to be. Now she’s researching ‘agents’ and submitting these things called query letters. How unfair. I need attention, I need to be played with, and as much as I hate to admit it, I need a bath!

Take me outside!

Me snuggling under my blankies

I’m a little upset right now. Sofia (her whole name is Sofia Diana Gabel) hasn’t taken me outside in a long time. She bought me, and Hermes, a really comfy pet stroller because we love to go out and meet people, but it’s just sitting in the trunk of her car! What good is that? I think it’s because she’s always typing on her laptop. I’ve tried everything to get her attention, from jumping onto her shoulder and purring in her ear to prancing across the keyboard. Oh, sure, she notices me all right, but all I get is a ‘Monty, not now!’ from her. And just now, she mumbled that I look dirty and need a bath. Sphynxes, if you don’t know, have to be bathed every week or so because without fur, the oils on our skin collect dirt. Hey, that’s not my fault, she should keep a cleaner house!

Hello everyone. I hope you like my site and come back many times to learn more about me and what it’s like being a Sphynx cat living with a writer. Trust me, it’s not always easy!

Sphynx cats are the best!

For those of you who don’t know what a Sphynx is, you simply must get informed. We are the best cats in the world. Yes, I know all breeds claim this illustrious title, but they’re wrong. Sphynx are best. We don’t have fur so you won’t have hairballs on your carpet and you won’t have cat fur in your food. We snuggle and play and love you to hold us. What’s better than that? That’s right, nothing. Come back often and you’ll learn how amazing we Sphynx truly are. And you’ll learn how I annoy my human companion, especially when she’s writing. She’s an author, so I really enjoy strolling across her keyboard!

This is me when I was a baby. Cute, eh?
