O HAI I MAKE YOU SLEEP NOW

I just got back from World Fantasy (I had a very good time, but like many people, I want to help call attention to the issue of disability and accessibility at ALL cons-read this post from Mari Ness if you haven’t.)

At any rate, I thought I would offer up a cartoon I drew almost exactly 7 years ago, when we had cats instead of kids. The problem with cats is they want to sleep and they want to make you sleep. Writers should really have dogs. I’m told dogs make you get up and go on walks in the morning. Cats make you take naps in the afternoon. You can see why I like cats.

Despite their sleep-making tendencies, I do miss that cat, who was a good cat and lived a good, full cat life. I also miss those pj pants. We still have that futon, though. I think I am currently wearing that shirt.
