A perfectly good nap ruined just because you want a quiz question? Oh very well. My name? - Master's Cat. I, dear reader have supervised and proofread many a fine novel - just to be sure. I was the brain's trust for the man who fed me. Do you seriously believe humans have such a way with words? Can you really imagine a simple man capable of thinking up names like Scrooge and the Artful Dodger? Phrases like "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"? Hmmm. No matter. I'm guessing that by now you may have some clue as to the identity of this so called writer? I'm trusting there is a kipper for my tea.
My master was truly a mixed bag. He was ready enough to design me a very useful cat door, but have you any idea how long I sat in that apple tree dropping fruit on his poor bewigged head? Of course his name is now synonymous with the word "gravity". No mention of me. No matter. My work here is done. Of course - you do know his name - thanks to my meddling ways.
( Two words, or just surname (surname is 6 letters))
Blatherskite here. My literary talents speak for themselves. You will be well familiar with my characters Tom and Becky. Huckleberry is a wonderful name - don't you think? I chose it because it rolls off the tongue rather like a satisfying purr. My master - now there's a character. I arranged for him to use the new fangled typing machine to transpose my ideas and story lines. My human was an unusual man - granted. I never much cared for his name though - "Samuel". So I arranged for him to change it.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Oh dear - yes I know I'm a large and very furry Persian but my mistress was very fond of me. She had reason to be. Bismarck's the name. I was the driving force behind an amazing woman. She revolutionised nursing practices especially sanitation techniques. Well how could she help but do so when she had me - the scrupulously clean Bismarck as a role model? I do have one complaint however. I could not tolerate that wretched owl Athena. Ah well - she made my mistress happy. As did I - and a remarkable mistress she was.
Tom Kitten reporting for duty. Yes. I know what you are thinking - a cat has no place in the Oval Office. I was aided in my missions by the young mistress of the house who dragged me everywhere under her arm. Once ensconced in a comfy chair I essentially ran the country. I certainly forestalled a huge standoff involving missiles and a place called Cuba. I think my master was grateful for my tactical skills.
John F. Kennedy
Franklin D. Roosevelt
My name is Jock. Mr. Jock to those dunderhead kittens down in Whitehall. World War Two. A triumph for feline intelligence. My master used to annoy the life out of me. He would insist on puffing those dreadful cigars but I put up with the smell because he helped me win the war by giving voice to my instructions. The victory was mine for the most part. I would haunt the operations room and move tactical pieces with a mere flick of my tail when no-one was watching. You do know the speech "We shall fight on the beaches"? - all mine. Of course the world will attribute the words to another.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
It is rude to stare and quite frankly we are not amused. My name - White Heather - and yes I am very fat and pampered. My mistress called me by this name because of her love of Scotland. She felt I had a special gift for divining a person's true nature and she was right of course. She ruled her Empire wisely under my guidance and I was proud that she was such an exceptional sovereign.
It is late afternoon here in Haworth. My name is Tabby and I am helping my mistress with her latest revisions. This used to be Tiger's job but he died last year. I am pleased with the development of the characters - especially Catherine and Heathcliffe. I am also delighted that my advice to set the novel amongst the Yorkshire Moors has been heeded. My mistress is indeed a diligent pupil under my tutelage.
Hodge the cat - that's me - and a lover of fine food, especially oysters. My master fed me these treats regularly which I knew to be very good brain food. Highly important for the work we faced - the very first dictionary. I had a major influence on this defining work but not all my opinions were acted upon. I tried to remove all reference to dogs or canines - I shudder even thinking of these creatures. I was ignored and so they remain in the pages of our work. I received no royalties, only oysters. My master is the name people remember when they think of the dictionary.
My name is Catarina but I would secretly prefer Lady Catarina. My master was a wonderful writer under my guidance. I had but one major disagreement with him and that was when he wrote about that pesky raven. I had other plans for that bird but for once I didn't win. My master also wrote "The Black Cat" as a tribute to me. Naturally.
