Simon is employed as a professional house cat. Hobbies include sitting on keyboards and open books; chasing lasers; cuddling; finding patches of sunshine to nap in; and eating. Always eating. Simon is known particularly for his unique meow, which was once described by a visitor of resembling the sound of a duck dying. He assists author Amanda Luzzader with brainstorming plot ideas, decompressing, and daydreaming. Wearing a tuxedo every single day, some might call him the most interesting cat in the world. Amanda considers him a muse and he frequently inspires her work.
