My name is Kaitlyn Deann and I’m 17. I like to write. And tigers. And fruit. And cookies. And books. And starting sentences with unnecessary conjunctions.
I do not like the smell of skunk. I know; I’m strange. Don’t stare.
I’d like to take a minute…
*Pauses, and then….*
♫ ♩ ♬ so just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air…. ♫ ♩ ♬
Yes, that was necessary.
Anywho. I would like to thank the amazing and talented Trish Marie Dawson, who invited me to do a guest blog! Thanks a trillion!
I’d also like to talk about tigers. Reason? I have tigers in my book THE WITCHES’ SLEEP. Okay, okay. So they aren’t full tigers. They’re weretigers. Yeah, you read right. WEREtigers. Half person, half tiger.
Best. Combination. Ever.
I’m a genius. A humble genius, that is. *Winks cockily*
Okay, so my weretigers’ tiger part of them is different from an earth tiger. They have a laryngeal.
What in the universe is that, Kaitlyn?!
The laryngeal muscle is a muscle that some — I repeat, SOME— felines have. When inhaling and exhaling, it vibrates, enabling them to purr. Tigers (from earth, that is) DO NOT have this muscle. Tigers do what is called chuffing. Sometimes it’s considered a friendly growl. They chuff when saying hello or they’re happy.
What does this have to do with weretigers?!
Chill, dude. This is a serious moment… My weretigers are NOT from earth. They are from a planet called Torx, where the dominate species are were-creatures — half person,half animal people. So what does this have to do with the laryngeal muscle? All the felines from Torx, all the were-cats, have this muscle.
I CAN DO THIS! YOU KNOW WHY?!
Because they are not from earth. They are tigers. My tigers.
Happy Hump-day Everyone!
