My Enemy: Ares God of Pen Snatching

My husband Kelvin and I adopted a stray kitten about a month ago, and his name is Ares. No, he's not the god of war. He's more like the god of being a pain in my butt.
 As a college student going to school over the summer, I have keep up with a planner to record my blog ideas, to write my work schedule, and to schedule my writing time. Yes, I know I'm a nerd for going to school over the summer, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

Anyway...I have a confession to make about this particular cat. I got him addicted to pens.

I know what you're thinking. How does a planner and a cat relate...wait a minute--a cat addicted to pens? Well, Every time I tried to write in my planner he'd come snooping around to step on it. He'd sit on me and block my writing space.

It gets worse.

When I would work on my novel, he'd come roaming from where ever he hides just to playfully bite my typing fingers. (He's doing it right now.) He'd watch the mouse cursor before he makes hunting squeals as he swats at my screen. Ugh...I could never get any kind of writing done, so I introduced him to the pen.
I'd throw the pen to pusuade him to leave me alone, and he'd fetch it. Now, he loves fetching pens.

Big mistake.

Every time when I write he jumps on my pen and takes it right out of my grasp.
Taking a pen from a writer is like drawing your sword. It's on, Ares God of Pen Snatching!

"Give me cat nip or your pen will be mines! Bruhhahahaha!
"What do you mean when you say you have no cat nip, master?!
"I warned you! It's mine now. Ha!Ha!Ha! Soon, I'll take over the universe and this pen will be by my side!"
