In 2010, I began writing Cat Fur to Make Kitten Britches just for fun, for the love of writing, and to document some of the stuff I was up to. The title of this blog is just a sort of nonsensical phrase that my step-grandmother used to use, usually in response to the question “What for?” from one of us kids when she asked us to do something.
I took a two year hiatus from writing when I became involved in volunteer work for a local cat rescue group. In addition to serving on their board of directors, I was managing their Facebook page, running fundraisers, helping with adoptions and coordinating foster care. It took up a lot of my time, and writing fell by the wayside. The connection between the title of my blog and my volunteer work was purely coincidental.
I am no longer volunteering for the same rescue group, and with all of the above-mentioned duties off of my plate, I’ve got some time to do a little more writing. Because just below my passion for animal rescue and welfare lies a passion for writing.
