Love Bites

I grew up in New Orleans and know all about vampires, thanks to Anne Rice and her best-selling series The Vampire Chronicles. Who could forget Lestat de Lioncourt, a nobleman turned vampire? I also am of the Dark Shadows vintage. Does anyone reading this blog remember dear Barnabus?

Though it has taken me a while to get up to speed with The Twilight Saga and the likes of Bella and Edward, I have heard of the actress Kristen Stewart and can easily recognize her picture on the cover of supermarket tabloids. Now, I can report on a recent finding, courtesy of a friend who spotted an item in People.

If trapped on a desert island, Ms. Stewart would designate her cat, Max, as her “must-have.”

“I’m going to be a crazy cat lady one day,” she announces in a “revelation” on a page titled “Chatter,” accompanied by a come-hither photograph of the comely actress and an inset snapshot of her orange-and-white cat. “We have a really strong, really weird codependent, almost Bella/Edward relationship.”

When you’re as young as Ms. Stewart, codependency is probably weird. For the rest of us Cat Ladies, codependency is the new normal.

I’ll take love bites from Alvar (pictured here), who has the longest fangs of our ten cats, over vampire attacks any day, any time, and in any parallel universe.

Query of the Day: Does your cat give you love bites?

  1. Pharaoh definitely gives us love bites! He's even fallen asleep with a finger in his mouth like a baby with a pacifier!
