She lives in Rapid City, SD with her husband and son. A Columnist and her Rabbit I like to think that the only thing standing between me and fame and fortune as a writer is my cat allergy. It's not true, but I still like to think it. A writer with a cat is almost a dich& Search the internet for "author with cat" and you will find a multitude of successful writers who are/were devoted cat loverS: Stephen King, Sylvia Plath, Ernest Hemingwa Joyce Carol Oates, Truman Capote and on and on. I'm not sure why cats appeal to writers. Maybe because they're quiet; they don't distract their., writer from his or her work. Or maybe because they're inde- pendent; they don't demand a lot of attention. Or maybe because they're.., cats; they teach writers to handle rejection. Whatever it is, it's better for me if I don't have one. So in lieu of a cat, I've allowed four fish, two hamsters, and, most recently, a canary into our home. None of them have said so, but I think they all appreciate the fact that we don't have a cat. I've also supported my son as he "pe t sat" a half dozen hermit crabs, an assort- ment of dogs and a chinchilla. Of all of these creatures, the hermit crabs were the quietest and most independent, but that's all I can say for them. And now, my family has welcomed yet another creature into the zoo that is our home: A rabbit. And I love her! My family had a few rabbits when I was growing up, but they came to an unfortu- nate end on our dinner table. I went hungry those days. And that's all I'm going to say about that. This rabbit will only be with us for a month while her owner is away. Her name is Chateau--the rabbit's, not the owner's. While it is a lovely name, it doesn't roll off the tongue for any us. "Here Chateau, here Chateau!" See what I mean. So we mainly call her Rabbit. We're not worried about confusing her. It's not like she comes either way. Rabbit is adorable! She's the color scheme of a little donkey; dark with tan nose, belly and hooves. I mean feet. I even called her Donkey for a few days after she arrived, but she didn't come to that either, Of all the critters we've shared our home with, Rabbit comes closest to being the "writer's cat" I can never have, except that her ears are longer and she can't meow or jump up on my keyboard. She's housetrained-- except when she's not -- so she spends her days lounging in our office. Her feelings toward us range from affectionate to neutral to downright disdainful. And she's quiet and prone to hair balls. If you're thinking a writer's rabbit ought to have a more literary name than "Rab- bit," you should check out author John Updike--not that his character Harry 'Rab- bit' Angstrom was our inspiration for temporarily naming Rabbit. Clearly, we had no inspiration at all; witness the fact that we're calling a rabbit, "Rabbit." My son, who had just finished reading Of Mice i n Men shortly before Rabbit ar- rived, called her Lennie a few times. But if you've'ever read Of Mice and Men, you know that might not be the most appropriate name either. Whatever we call her, I'm going to miss Rabbit terribly when she goes. I definitely see the benefits of a writer's rabbit for those of us who can't have cats. She doesn't make me sneeze or break out in hives. She doesn't purr when I pet her, but she doesn't hiss either. And maybe most importantly, she shows no interest whatsoever in our canary.
