It's amazing how quickly life can change. One minute you're a reasonably normal person - the next minute you're the foster mother of an infant and a celebrity cat manager.
All's been quiet on the writing front (and will likely stay that way for the next couple of weeks) because I spotted this little fluff-ball on the footpath on the way home from work the other day and took him home.
The story was picked up by the New Zealand Herald and then went global! I'm now spending as much time helping Bruce manage his Facebook page as I am feeding him and getting him to sleep.
If you'd like to find out more about Bruce you can visit his Bruce The Cat Facebook page, check out his New Zealand Herald article or read more on The Dodo or Love Meow.
