I Strongly Believe That If My Cat Had an Author Photo It Would Look Like This

Yup, I’d buy a book from that cat.

I leave the title of said book for you to muse over in the comments.

I enjoy pie.

Serial Killing for Fun! (How to predate small mammals, birds, large insects and anything else that makes interesting horkup on carpets.)

It would be a bestseller among cats, I think.

Alternatively, he could go for the high road with Is There an Aslan on Your Sofa?

I previously remarked that in MY day, the three standard Author Photos were:
(1) Standing in front of shelves of books and trophies;
(2) Holding a well-worn pipe, Sherlockian or otherwise, in hand or with stem between teeth;
(3) In the garden.

If so, where are the cat’s trophies?

It took a minute or so for any text to load, so after the post from the other day about LC being missing and having recently lost my own beloved kitty, my first thought on seeing the photo was “oh, this cannot be good.”

John’s author portrait where his head is slightly turned looks disturbingly like a 1980s Lawrence Taylor cover photo. The only difference was that LT had a diamond studded earring with LT hanging off a chain. Makes me wonder… if one of his books gets pushed beyond the option part and gets turned into an actual series whether John will pimp it and get an earring with a JS hanging down. I’m at work, so I can’t google the photo, but they are damn similiar.

The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Lopsided Cat, &c. Who was Born at the Animal Shelter, and during a Life of continu’d Variety for Onescore Years, besides his Childhood, was Six Year a Pet, five times a Wildcat (whereof once of his own pride), Six Year a Farmcat, Eight Year a Transported Feline in Ohio, at last grew Fat, liv’d Honest, and died a Penitent. Written from his own Meowmorandums….by LC DeCat

My first nap on the job coincided with the first day of the Haden Walkout, so I totes missed it! A feed of me snoozing in the FBI building got a fair amount of play on the Haden news sites and forums. This was not a thing I needed on my first day. Still, like I said, missed it!

Obviously the Lopsided one’s author name is Natsume Soseki, and the book is internationally famous “I am a Cat”.
Now read in a Japanese literature class near you!

Exploitative Coevolution; The Dominance of Felis Catus over Homo Sapiens. Hmmm…I may have to enter this in the Bad Ad Hoc Hypothesis Festival. I think I could prove it. Really.
