"There is, incidentally, no way of talking about cats that enables one to come off as a sane person." ~Dan Greenberg
“If you could just see your face,” she told me. “You look like a cat in a bathtub.”
― Patricia Briggs, Iron Kissed
Wet cats are some of the planet’s most pathetic creatures. When I’ve had to bathe my Maine Coon mix, he has shrunk to half of his normal self. He also emits the most pathetic cry ever heard in this house. You would think such a big cat couldn’t make such a tiny noise, but you’d be wrong.
In addition to using a very effective simile, this quote, though demonstrates Patty Briggs’ trademark humor. Her Mercy Thompson series is a must-read for any urban fantasy fan. I have “Frost Burned”, the latest entry on my TBR, so I’ll definitely be reviewing it at some point.
