Guest Writer's Cat Of The Week: Pyewacket, Owner Of David Quantick
Pyewacket (after the cat in Bell Book And Candle).
All embarrassing. Pye, Poopensteiner, Porkjacket, Paypacket, Michael Nyman.
Lovecats, by The Cure.
Jenna, David and Nosni.
I started life in Canton, Cardiff, living with a barmaid who got me from a customer. When I left the flat it was so flea-infested she had to call the council. I was six months when Jenna got me, and now I live in Hastings with David, Jenna, a baby and a dog.
“Please let me out of the utility room. Please. Please let me out of the utility room. Please let me out. Please let me out. Please let me out of the utility room. Please. Please let me out…”
Knocking over wine glasses with my tail while fighting the dog. Puking inappropriately.
What constitutes a perfect evening for you?
Lying on the arm of the sofa with the dog dead in a corner.
Defining moment of your life?
Climbing up Jenna’s jeans with my claws while she was doing the washing up.
Jim the dog and Queenie the cat.
If you could do one thing to make the world a better place for cats, what would it be?
Tell other cats to stand up to dogs while they’re still puppies.
If you could meet a celebrity, who would it be and why?
I don’t know what they are.
Which one of the cats in Under The Paw and Talk To The Tail would you most like to be stuck in a lift with?
I can’t read. I’m a cat. Please let me out of the utility room. Please. Please let me out. Please let me out of the utility room. Please let me out. Please.
Read David Quantick's latest book, Sparks.
