Writer's Block: AKA

What's the story behind your username?

kiramowett: Kira is my cat. Mr. Mowett is a favorite character from Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels. No story, really. I just use Kira as part of my username just about everywhere.

If you could ask your pet any question (and they could answer you), what would it be?

I would ask Kira why she stares into space all the time, and what she's seeing. It's odd behavior, even for a cat. And I'd ask Eddie why he "chose" me- like he somehow knew I would take care of him when he showed up as a lost and hungry kitten. Cats seem to know when someone has a good heart, I guess. Eddie showed up, and I just melted. I just had to take him to the vet and then adopt him!

Cats really do choose their people.
My cat chose my mom in the middle of nowhere during a sleet storm - she was in the road and when my mom stopped and got out of the car, Vespa ran to her, and she's been ours ever since. Not the first cat that's done such a thing with my mom, either, though possibly the most dramatic instance.
We have another cat we share with our neighbors, and he also chose us - his family, other people in the neighborhood, weren't taking good enough care of him, so he started coming to visit both us and our neighbors, looking for food, and a warm place to sleep, and affection. He probably just knew we had food, but he definitely attached himself to us - cats know how to find people to take care of them, and they also know a good thing when they find it!

Yeah, that is definitely Eddie. He just sort of latched on to me. Even at 14, he still needs to be babied. He likes to wander off from time to time, but he knows where home is and who his mommy is!
