artemis · goddess of the hunt, forest and moon 

Artemis is known as the goddess of the hunt and is one of the most respected of all the ancient Greek deities. It is thought that her name, and even the goddess herself, may even be pre-Greek. She was the daughter of Zeus, king of the gods, and the Titaness Leto and she has a twin brother, the god Apollo. Not only was Artemis the goddess of the hunt, she was also known as the goddess of wild animals, wilderness, childbirth and virginity. Also, she was protector of young children and was know to bring and relieve disease in women. In literature and art she was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrow.


The last time I posted pictures of Artemis on here she looked terrible and sickly because… well she was. She was very out of shape and unhealthy because before I took her in she was locked up in a crate all day every day.
This is her now, seven months later. She’s happy, well trained and in great shape. No more hot spots. I’ve put a LOT of blood sweat and tears into healing and training her. I have never been more proud of myself. I saved her life and she returns that favor by being my best friend by my side every step of every day.
