Lucy Leaf / Betsy Bean
It’s raining cats at my house! I’ve got a stack of new urban fantasy books to read, but my cat keeps climbing on my tea table, then leaping onto my lap, right on top of the open pages. How am I supposed to escape into this great story?
Sincerely, Raining Cats and Cats
Dear Raining Cats,
Try to gently whisker away, or if that doesn’t work, paws for a catnap until you’re feline better, then hopefully she’ll have wandered off and you can return to your book. It’s possible she just misses you and needs love and affection, in which case maybe you could give her some cuddles? It could be worse. She could hiss and growl and refuse to come near you, which would be catastrophic.
Tea is relaxing, refreshing, and way classier than coffee.
I’ve brewed a pot of Scottish breakfast tea, and I’m percolating with all kinds of advice and wisdom for you. I have no problem with coffee, mind you, and I am not here to spend oolong time changing you all into tea lovers. (But I’ll try). I can matcha Betsy leaf to bean with an additional dose of varie-tea to my column. Read on for perfectly acceptable responses to readers’ questions. I’ll leaf you to submit your question below for wise and thoughtful advice.
