Five Star Friday: Edition #52

Seeing as I am being thoroughly harrassed by a cat while I try to put today's roundup together, I thought this quote was particularly appropriate:

A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It's a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys.

   — Barbara Holland
