Sachiko considers it very important to keep on top of the news.
She is, without question, the most dedicated butt-reader in the family.
And, while her choice of reading material speaks well of her determination to stay informed, the sad truth is that–appearances notwithstanding–much of the content is over her head.
I said in Tuesday’s post that I give my novels to a crew of beta readers. What I didn’t mention is that not all of the readers are human.
Here’s Kaja reading Splat Squad. As you might expect, she’s reading with her butt. Judging by her expression, she either just found a typo or she read a scene involving swimming. Both give her an urge to wash the offending material out of her eyes. No matter how hard she tries, though, there are some things that, once seen, cannot be unseen.
For the record, no, Sachiko is not a beta reader. She is still a kitten after all. Aside from the fact that there are child labor laws to consider, she’s still more interested in picture books.
