Purrfect Pen

Normally cats aren't too helpful when it comes to writing. They're either knocking your pen to the floor or chewing on the corner of your notebook, and if you're trying to work on a laptop, forget it! That's the best bed in the world. But this pretty kitty is an exception that's sure to be appreciated by the cat-loving author in your life.
