So, in an effort to establish a space where I can write about my cats (and cats/cat-related issues more generally) without constantly thinking "gah, I'm writing about nothing but cats!", I've started a companion blog. It's called Felines Are Wonderful.
So far I have posted brief (well brief for me...) introductions to all four of the kitties I am fortunate enough to share my home with, and I plan to try and keep any further posts regarding cat furniture, cat food, creative litter-box construction, etc., over at FAW. That doesn't mean I will never mention cats here -- they come up in my brain a lot, and lately have been figuring strongly into any Big Thoughts About Ethics I entertain -- so they're bound to make an appearance every now and then here at EIW.
And of course, this does not mean I am going to stop writing in EIW. I am actually hoping FAW will increase the number of halfway-readable posts that get published on EIW, due to letting me just get My Various And Endless Thoughts On Cats out of my system, so to speak, making room for other posts to germinate and actually get finished.
