New breed

Lykoi, the werewolf cats.

“Lykoi” is the Greek word for “wolf” and it has been adopted to name a new, fascinating cat breed. Also known as the werewolf cat, the Lykoi owes its very distinctive look to a natural genetic mutation that occurred in a few completely unrelated litters. One was from a Sphinx mother, one from a very common black domestic shorthair.

These cats have been tested for possible genetic illnesses and have been found to be healthy, so a few breeders have decided to try and make it into a proper new breed. In 2012, the Lykoi went before the The International Cat Association (TICA) and were passed to “Registration Only” status. This means that they are now a recognized breed with TICA.

Also apparently there’s “Is solarpunk REALLY punk” discourse and I’d just like to say there is NOTHING more punk that clean energy and domestic gardening and breeding new kinds of organics in a world that says diesel and industrialized agriculture are what’s right.

Solarpunks are the people who scream “down with lawn culture” and turn their entire yard into a vegetable garden. Solarpunks are the people who destroy the factory polluting their water and don’t lose power when the grid is cut off cause they have solar panels. Solarpunk is clean, organic punk, but it’s still punk AF.

anonymous asked:

Is ur kitty a calico? If so I have a calico too! She's only a baby and she's very feisty rn but I still love her

no, she’s not a calico. i’m actually not really sure what she is, but my guess would be that she’s some sort of norwegian forest cat mix. it’s a pretty popular breed in norway, and her mom resembles one pretty closely (except she’s a lot smaller than most norwegian forest cats)

Soulitaire - New Breed

From the upcoming album I Beleive In Rainbows from the Austria-based musician.

The song is about hope. A look through all the anxiety and desperation right into a time when those deliberate and warm hearted people that are young adults today will become the next architects of our world. They will look back to learn and look forward to build upon those experiences. And then there will again be hard times to struggle with and again someone will be there to learn to make it better. Because that’s how life is: Waves. Quite beautiful actually, if you watch them from a distance.“
