a lifetime of living with cats

once i get approved for an emotional support animal i really want to adopt a nice old lady cat. preferably one thats 10ish years old or older. i love old cats, they are soft and mellow and deserve a chance bc 10 isnt actually that old for a cat, especially if they dont have any major health problems. ive had two cats in my lifetime, the first one lived until she was 18 years old and the second one is still happy and healthy at 17

Not only did Richard Chase claim the lives of six people during his lifetime, but he also committed a number of random and senseless acts of violence.

Some time in the year 1997, Richard visited his mother and chose to greet her by thrusting a dead cat in her face once she had opened the door, he continued to throw the cat on the ground, rip open its stomach, stick his hands inside of the cat, then smear its blood over his face whilst screaming.

On 27th December 1977, two days before killing his first victim, Richard fired a .22 calibre handgun through the kitchen window of a Sacramento woman, however, no one was harmed.

On 11th January 1978, Richard attacked and restrained a fellow neighbour after he asked her for a cigarette, letting her go once she had turned over the entire pack. Two weeks following this incident, he broke into a house and robbed it, then urinated in a drawer containing the clothing of an infant and defecated on the bed of a child.

Attention all witches!! I need your help!!!

I just found out that one of the cats in the house I’ve been living is probably sick. She’s 15. Since I’ve moved here we’ve gotten attactched. She follows me everywhere. Sleep with/ on me. Never leaves me side and most of the time props herself right in my lap. I’ve come to know her as a familiar. Is there anything I can do to prolong her life? If not is there a way I can ease her transition out of this lifetime?

Gwen John - Self Portrait (1902)

Gwen John was a Welsh artists whose legacy mostly consists of portraits of anonymous female sitters. During her lifetime she was overshadowed by her bother Augustus, however, today it seems that his prophecy that “in 50 years I will be known as Gwen John’s brother” has come true since most contemporary art critics see her as the more talented of the two.

At 27 she permanently moved Paris since it was easier there for young women to make a living. She lived a fairly solitary life with her cats, devoted most of her time to painting and had several passionate love affairs with men and women. She created several thousand art works that have been praised for their atmosphere of serenity and a reduced colour palette, and are presented in major contemporary collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Tate Gallery.

  1. could you live as a hermit?

It’s difficult going into complete social isolation, but as long as I can sustain and entertain myself in a house, I could manage

(But I can’t live in a cave or anything like that)

Tagged by @risuquest !

Rules: Tag nine people you want to get to know better

@tremordragon @apfelcolour @eveningfollies aaand anyone who wants to do this!

How old are you: 9 lives

Dream job: Web comic artist

What is a big goal you are working towards (or have already achieved)?: Finishing at least (1) series in my lifetime

What’s your aesthetic?: Neon + dark base combination, pastels, Cyperpunk (GiTS style), cats and lyrics over photographs

Do you collect anything?: Hello Kitty! If I could, I would 100% buy every Hello Kitty item I come across at stores, or buy 20 Happy Meals so I can get all the toys.

What’s a topic you’re always up to talk about?: Talking about ocs! I love to talk about mine and others, and seeing how over time they all develop! It’s also interesting to see how each person develops their own ocs and how it differs from each other, but it’s all legit.

What’s a pet peeve of yours?: Hmm, well, I’m not fond of gum crackling, people not washing their hands after using the restroom, people not finishing their laundry so it’s left to sour in the washer, and guys who leave the toilet seat up.

Good advice to give?: You’re valid for being hurt. No matter if a friend hurt you, or a relative hurt you, or you felt hurt but couldn’t say anything in a gathering. If they use your insecurities as a base of their jokes, that’s not right, and they need to stop immediately. If they use what you enjoy or your personal situation as a means to jab at you, that’s not right either. You do not exist to be somebody’s twisted entertainment or to be put down to make ‘em feel good. Anyone who does this isn’t worth your time. Your feelings are valid, and you deserve to be surrounded by people who actually cares for you.

Recommend 3 Songs:

Party Monster” by The Weeknd (+ his Starboy album)
Fake” by Mystery Skull
Afterburn” by Bobby Tank

I’m not quite sure where I’m going with this story. Other than to say I’ve been thinking a lot about death as some of you would know and it’s been rough kind of playing these songs over and over again and meditating on this and mulling it over and allowing myself to contain it and allowing these subjects to reside in me. I’ve been thinking about all the animals that we had that died and a lot of my family and friends have died and thinking about their past lives and future lives but also most importantly, the lives that I knew in my lifetime and how I carry all of that with me every single one of those experiences, those personal histories,  those stories, those relationships, whether it was my mother, or King Solomon as a Siamese cat. And how all of that, those stories, I’m not so sure about former lives or future lives, but their lives in my own personal very short history were very important. And that I somehow, I carry that with me as a, a living person while I live and breathe and move and have my being that I somehow contain their stories and their lives. Um and that I feel less and less sort of possessed and depressed by death as I think of it in this way and more and more encouraged by death because then I see it all as companionship, that I contain it all and it resides in me. And that I can, in my life, be a living steward in memory of them, and celebration of them. And then maybe someday when I’m dead, one of my reincarnated cats will remember me and be part of their lives, I don’t know. But that’s just rambling

Writing’s On The Wall by Sam Smith - 00Q

Guess who has all the 00Q feels from Spectre and London Spy. There’s even a cat.

(Writing’s On The Wall)

I’ve been here before

But always hit the floor

I’ve spent a lifetime running and I always get away

But with you I’m feeling something

That makes me want to stay

I’m prepared for this

I never shoot to miss

But I feel like a storm is coming if I’m gonna make it through the day

Then there’s no more use in running this is something I gotta face

If I risk it all

Could you break my fall?

How do I live? How do I breathe?

When you’re not here I’m suffocating

I want to feel love run through my blood

Tell me is this where I give it all up

For you I have to risk it all

‘Cause the writing’s on the wall

A million shards of glass

That haunt from my past

As the stars begin to gather and the light begins to fade

When all hope begins to shatter know that I won’t be afraid

If I risk it all

Could you break my fall?

How do I live? How do I breathe?

When you’re not here I’m suffocating

I want to feel love run through my blood

Tell me is this where I give it all up

For you I have to risk it all

‘Cause the writing’s on the wall

Big cats in the wild are disappearing at an alarming rate. In fact, within our lifetime, lions in the wild could disappear forever. In support of World Lion Day (August 10), we’re raising money to preserve big cats—like lions—and their habitats through National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative.   Your donation, no matter how small, will make a very real difference in the lives of these majestic creatures. From building livestock enclosures to save snow leopards in Nepal to combating lion snaring and poaching in Zambia, the Big Cats Initiative provides on-the-ground conservation and education support to preserve big cat populations worldwide
