i was wondering if you have any advice for owning cats with vision problems? we discovered recently that my roommate's cat has something wrong with his eyes that damages his vision and it's likely he will go blind while he's still young, according to the vet. this is new territory for us and we want to help him as much as we can!
sorry to hear this! I don’t think I can give any valuable advice, but maybe other people will chip in with their experiences?
all I can offer is, be extra understanding. if this cat becomes fearful once his vision goes (bites folk unexpectedly, etc.) be sensitive to his point-of-view & try to comfort him the best you can
fanfic asks i’m going to post answers in numerical order as i got some numbers asked twice which is cool but i definitely am the idiot who will lose track if i don’t do it in number order! also i’ll throw it under a read-more bc i tend to get rambly and so it all gets quite long! like seriously i apologize i wanted to give it my all but like i may have written too much >_<;;;
YO I LOVE YOUR CAT AU okay so I went to pet smart yesterday and I went to the area that has the cats and there was these two cats that caught my attention one of them only had one eye ( I almost cried about it but it was because his eye was failing) and the second one who I remember his was Jojo (such a cutie) this guy was brought back and my heart melted of how he was laying down and just wanted to play like ugh just imagine if viktor or any of the other cats met him?!! I just want Jojo •-•
Meeting a cat called Jojo? I guess you could say that was a …. bizarre adventure
∠( ᐛ 」∠)＿
I love going to say hi to the cats at pet stores, though I always wish they had more room to move around ;;
What a nice surprise to come home to! Checked in to see that I hit 100+ followers.
Thank you all so much for the follows, reblogs, likes, and nice tags (I do read those!)
I’m quite tired right now, but I will try to see if I can get some art in tonight. And don’t forget you can request any cat that you want to see (it also helps me remember cats because there are so many)
The question you asked about the Garlfied post: I would read the SHIT out of a story about a starving artist making a deal with an eldritch horror from beyond and accidently ending up getting some otherworldly dick.
okay so here is my pitch
it would be called Lionel James Wants To Be Famous
leo is a young man who, as the title suggests, would really like to be famous. and he has a lot of ideas about how he could like to be famous. but unfortunately for leo, he has approximately no talent, and not even in an interesting wiseau kind of a way.
he tried making a webcomic, which went approximately nowhere. he tried making flash animations, back when that was a thing. he returned to the well of webcomics. he tried stand-up. he tried self-publishing young adult novels. he made two episodes of a podcast. his latest venture has been an attempt to make it as a famous youtuber.
but he fucking sucks. not even in the fun way that some people suck. if he went viral for being shitty, he would be ecstatic. he would sell t-shirts celebrating his own humiliation. there is just nothing even remotely interesting about leo. there is not a creative bone in his body. he has no vision or drive. he is the guy who thinks he’s funny because he’s really good at repeating stand-up routines he saw on comedy central. he’s just. he’s not great.
so he does what any young man with minimal ambition that exceeds his even more minimal talent would do, and he summons a demon. which takes the form of a cat. a very round and fluffy black cat, with red eyes.
he names it taft.
taft the cat is a photogenic cheese-loving internet sensation. leo monetizes everything. there are shirts. there are ad-covered videos. taft gets their own comic book. sponsorships. leo gets to go on talk shows with his ridiculous fat cat from hell.
here is the thing about taft: they have been doing this for a long time. artists are easy marks. they’ve never taken the form of a lolcat before, but generally, acting as a muse is a quick way to get a soul. because sooner than later, an artist will realize how unfulfilling it is, how much it sucks to know that all their success is actually because of their demon muse, etc etc.
obviously getting artists to kill themselves due to lack of creative fulfillment isn’t exactly nice, but, demon.
leo, however, fucking loves this arrangement. because leo is not an artist. he just wants to be treated like one. and with dawning horror, this hideous shadowterror comes to realize that they are going to be stuck with this asshole for a really long time. and no matter what they do to try to make leo uncomfortable, or renege on the deal… it never works. he just rolls with it.
taft must now try to find a way to make living with an obnoxious manchild into something tolerable, and so far their plan is 90% ‘annoy the everliving shit out of him’ with a 10% side of ‘well, at least he’s not bad-looking’.
