I don't know what I'm doing. I've never written a book before. I don't have a perfect concept, and I don't know whether it'll ever get published.
So I'm encouraged. I have 4 important things in common with JR Rowling, Dean Koontz, Tolkein
and everyone else who ever Sat down to write their first book.
I wrote a few chapters a while back but got bogged down. I got lost and discouraged. I didn't know where I was going. New idea. I'm writing a short story. I'll but down the whole story, then I'll be able to move things around, and I'll have a complete idea down on paper. Not precisely A short Story. A short Story is a different art form with different exigencies. More like a summary. I'll post some of my real short stories here later.
The basic idea is that I'm just gonna sit down and write this thing.
I'll make a new blog so I can organize the blook chapter by chapter.
If writing this as a blob is too much of a hassle, I'll need to write it in word or whatever and then part it as a blook later.

Cut out some felt. Um, collar size.

Please excuse the fuzziness of the photography. In a clichéd attempt at authenticity, my model decided to get stoned OUT OF HlS MlND before our photo shoot. The 70's are over, Twitch.
The back is felt. This gives it body.
This picture shows how the length of the collar is adjustable. This is a prototype, hence the visible stitching. The center piece of Velcro is for my cats´ radio beacon. Cat owners with less advanced obsessive compulsive disorder can attach an ordinary ID tag to the button on the front.

Epiphany. The healing rays of an electronical UV Stinkfinder also cause the subtle transformation
Can you spot the problem below? Correct. I have a reddish, mouth-like opening and have failed to create felt teeth and tongue. Not to mention felt tonsils.
The water dish for the true feline connoisseur The idea is to put a stick an upside-down bottle of water into the "tank." Then the "bowl" is self-filling.
The Cat Genie. Self cleaning - you hook it up to your toilet. My cats loved it right away. I was still setting it up and they were trying to use it.
The Cat Genie is awesome. The cat pollutes, the Genie scoops, fills itself with water, agitates, rinses and blow dries itself. It rarely has problems, but when it does, they are big ones. Think "poop soup." Yeah, you old Litterfree veterans know what I'm talking about. There's nothing like cleaning out a Poop Slurpee at 3 am while your cat blithely fertilizes your bedspread because his toilet is out of commission.
Thus, we have a luxurious alternative. Who wouldn't love to eliminate his or her bodily wastes upon the glimmering crystal gems of two Scoop Free self-cleaning litter trays?
The one on the right is covered, for those shy, contemplative calls of nature. The one on the left is al fresco for the happy-go-lucky powderings of the nose.
