I am a trauma poet and kind of an essayist. I write about terribly sad things that have happened to me. My work is biographical. It leaves me vulnerable. It can affect my personal life- my work and how my family views me.
People who meet Drem on my site seem to think they know me because my work is so honest. They don’t know me. I don’t even know me. There’s more to me than just writing about rape and living with a chronic illness. (I certainly don’t appreciate unsolicited advice on how to cope, FYI).
Anyway, now Miss. Miserable is writing a short series on her cat. Why? Because her cat is cute and funny. I enjoy sharing him with you. Not everything needs to be depressing 100% of the time on ArtOfDrem!
I notice a lot of writers and artists of all kinds have dealt with illness, whether mental or physical, a crossover or both. And many of them have cats.
Cats are great. They don’t force you to be happy when you’re not happy. They’re generally pretty chill when you’re in a mood. They aren’t as demanding as a small dog who barks and needs to be walked. Most use the litter box unless they are sick (get your cat checked for a UTI if he isn’t using the letterbox!) Cats are just great. I think more artists should adopt a cat.
So please, let’s laugh a little and read some of my short tidbits about my cat!
And that’s just the beginning!
