Cats, in their own independent and introverted way, make great author companions. From Charles Dickens to Edgar Allan Poe, authors have shared a special bond with cats.
So it’s little wonder to find that author social media feeds are overtaken by their beloved cats. As ailurophiles ourselves, we couldn’t help but dedicate a special post to our feline friends.
1. Güs PonPon
When a cat has its own Instagram account, we had to find out where all that love was coming from.
Bicotti, when not busy appearing in Yudhanjaya’s tweets, likes to curl up and chill.
Also, it’s unclear whose favorite food she was named after.
I like how we both have the same reaction to the concept of Monday pic.twitter.com/baCM3XufkR— Yudhanjaya Wijeratne 👾 (@yudhanjaya) October 19, 2020

Super weird sleep pattern today. Slept at 1 AM. Woke up at 12? Wrote 1600 words and set a small-sample model to train. And then almost fell asleep again at 6.30 PM.— Yudhanjaya Wijeratne 👾 (@yudhanjaya) July 21, 2020
Biscotti agrees that this is bizarre deviation from our usual 4-5 hour median. Something’s off. pic.twitter.com/ifFbgEEPHI

Melanie Benjamin has a handful of cats and they summon her athourly wit through Instagram posts.
Turns out (not surprisingly) Beatriz Williams’s rescue cat inspired the character “Sandy” in her book Her Last Flight.
Hazel Gaynor hinted that Puffin could be writing her next novel!
Shafeeka Hafeez grew up escaping into a world of books where she discovered a love for writing and a fascination with trees. When she’s not taking up a new marketing skill, or typing out a blog post, you can find her Googling the best therapy for abandoned cats.
