If you’ve thought the Austen family was just a tad outrageous, wait until you’ve met their pets.
An excerpt of my book, the chapter titled The Bionic Cat, is up at Hazard Cat.
I wouldn’t go so far as to say this was my favorite chapter; that would be like saying I had a favorite child. But I will admit this was the most fun to write, this and the one forthcoming from the same magazine about the same cat titled I Can Kilz Boyfriend.
It’s chapters like these that remind me why I’m not calling my book a memoir. There’s no way I could exaggerate at the level I did if I had to stay within bounderies of accuracy and plausibility. But as you read it might be important to know Smokey was not embellished. The cat was the real deal. You won’t believe it.
