Oh my god. I never even considered the possibilities... Felix and Locus cat AU... interacting with the reds and blues. Wash scritching Locus behind the ears. Grif sneaking them food they shouldn't be eating. Caboose loving them like Lenny in Of Mice and Men. Tucker begrudgingly giving Felix belly rubs, like okay this little guy's not so bad- YOU FUCK DID YOU JUST BITE ME? MOTHERFUCKER GET BACK HERE. Lopez somehow realizing who they really are but nobody can understand him.

OMG but this!

This has possibilities

the only stumbling block is how to get them all together in the first place….. :plots:

(gdi Tumblr stop that)

it would have to be a verse where they weren’t already facing off against them, because Felix & Locus disappear & a few days later they find these strays? I think at least Grif would be suspicious as hell XD

but maybe they just stumble across these cats who really suck at catting apparently, and Wash has been feeding them, and thye’re desperate enough to go along with it because yeah, they figure out hunting, but there’s enough human brain to go blech at raw mouse until they get hungry enough

and ok, maybe it was All Felix’s Fault (as usual), but playing housecat is a damn sight better than huddling up for warmth and dodging feral dogs and Animal Control

Hmmmmmm………

I kind of feel like my depression is invalid. I mean, I have a good life, and plenty of money, friends, I was never bullied or harassed, and I recognize that I'm in a good place status wise. I just can't not be sad and I can't not think about suicide and just ending it. I feel like I shouldn't be allowed to though, because nothing has ever happened to me that gives me a reason to be depressed, and like there are people who have it so much worse and who have such valid reasons, and I just don't..

An incomplete list of things that do not need permission to do whatever the hell they want:

  • cats
  • feelings
  • brain chemistry

Much like cats, feelings and brain chemistry are going to dutifully listen to any instructions or requests that you have, and then are going to immediately disregard them because you’re not the boss of them. Also much like cats, feelings and brain chemistry do not need a “good reason” to do what they want. Why did your cat just push that glass of water off the table? Because it’s a cat and that’s what cats do. Why are you depressed? Because your brain isn’t producing the right balance of chemicals, and that’s just a thing that happens sometimes. 

It doesn’t matter how you got to the point that you are. What matters is that you’re here. You are depressed right now. That does not need any qualifiers. That does not need any justification. You feel what you feel, and that is all of the justification that you need. Regardless of why you’re depressed, you feel what you feel, and it is real.

So, I’m going to suggest that you talk to someone. I know that’s hard when you feel like you should just stop feeling the way that you do. Unfortunately, that’s kind of a side-effect of being depressed. Depressed-brains always like to tell you that what you’re feeling isn’t enough, isn’t real, isn’t important. The cardinal rule of depression is to do the exact opposite of what depression-brain is telling you to do. You matter as much as everyone else does, what you are feeling matters, and you deserve help as much as everyone else regardless of whether you feel like their problems are more severe or not. 

(It’s worth noting that I’ve seen people who have gone through a lot of horrible things saying everything that you said, and saying that other people have it so much worse. This thought isn’t really a function of your actual problems, it’s a function of being depressed.)

Just wanting to die is, itself, a serious problem and no competent mental health professional would dismiss what you are feeling just because you don’t think there’s a good reason for it. You’re allowed to say that you’re not okay, regardless of anything else.

I’m in survival mode right now and have been for at least a couple of days (my memories usually shit, but it’s even worse when I’m not doing well, so I literally do not know how long it’s been)

I’m just trying to get through moment to moment, and it’s really hard, way harder than it should be
At least most of the time, I have (small) moments where I’m okay but they don’t last long

I’ve been pretty rapidly losing weight (which sucks ‘cause I was already underweight), and while I have been working out for the first time in a long time I just barely did some back stretches yesterday (because my back still hurts) and today I can’t even do that

I keep debating wether to call a help line or go to the hospital but I just don’t know if it’s necessary and I read something about people taking resources from people who really need them somewhere and that’s really messing with me. If you know an online crisis service where I don’t have to physically talk let me know (I know there’s text services but I don’t have a plan for my phone right now and I don’t think I could go outside to get minutes, especially since I haven’t had to get any in years so idk how to get them now)

Yeah, it hasn’t been this bad in what at least feels like a very long time, and I don’t think it’s ever been bad in this way but usually when it’s bad it’s always different so I don’t know

I don’t think I can really process what’s going on but I know I need to leave home soon, at least I’m pretty sure. I just don’t have the financial means or the energy to do what it takes to leave so I feel very stuck

My biggest coping mechanism is to just throw myself into my devices to distract myself but I can’t really interact when I’m this way so I’ll be here but mostly just liking stuff and saving drafts and things

You know what'd be cute? If cats loved Izaya. They follow him in the streets, look at him through cafe windows, wait outside his apartment. Izaya's slowly accumulating more kitty stalkers. People start to notice and he doesn't how to make them stop.

I want this and also don’t want this but mainly I want this, just…

Izaya trying to shoo the cats away, but that only makes them smoochier. He tries to lightly move them away with the side of his foot, but they just roll over and start purring instead. 

Izaya’s cat army attacking Shizuo, or Shizuo not being able to attack Izaya because there are too many cats around and they’re in the god damn way

Shinra calling Izaya a crazy old cat person because he’s always around the cats, and Izaya carrying around those sticky lint rollers in bulk because he doesn’t look as intimidating now that his jACKET IS COVERED IN CAT HAIR ALL THE DAMN TIME.

aCTUALLY. JUST IMAGINE…


It wasn’t often that the Informant of Shinjuku felt afraid, but on one particularly clear autumn night, he couldn’t shake help it. It was as though he were being watched, but each time he tried to outsmart his stalker, they managed to slip through his fingers.

This feeling had been growing ever since a particularly bad fight with Shizuo several weeks earlier. He’d almost been killed by one of the brute’s lucky shot’s, only managing to dodge the lamp post at the last second. It was a good thing he had, given that it destroyed a recently abandoned dwelling when it passed him.

He’d limped back to Shinjuku shortly after, but wasn’t quite sure he’d really lost Shizuo. He felt eyes upon him, watching his movements.

He felt judged.

But that had been weeks ago, and he was now becoming annoyed with his stalker. 

Deciding to finally corner them, he ducked down an alley with a dead end and a fire escape. He climbed it quickly, hiding himself in the shadows as he laid in wait for the person following him.

Is it Shizu-chan? Has he finally grown another brain cell and decided to hunt me like the caveman he is?’ He wondered to himself as he flicked open his knife. 

From where he was hiding, he could see shadows on the wall no matter which direction their owners came from. It only took a moment to see the first dark figure moving across the wall, followed by another, and another, and another…

What is this? They don’t… look human? Are they friends of the Courier?

Over a dozen strange figures moved across the wall as Izaya prepared himself. There was the possibility that he couldn’t fight them, but he was in a position to move further up the fire escape should he need to. He just needed to wait, to evaluate his harassers befo-

Bang!

Izaya’s head shot up to the noise above him, as he crouched and centred himself. It wasn’t ideal to fight for his life on a fire escape, but it was better than not being able to at all.

He was just about to throw a blade where he’d heard the noise, when he heard a very distinct sound.

Meow.

Mrrrrow. 

Izaya looked in disbelief as five or more cats stared down at him from the rooftop. He turned back to the alley, only to find over a dozen more trying their hardest to climb up the ladder and up to him.

“What…?”

After his stalkers had been forced to reveal themselves, they never did try to hide again. From then on, Izaya could be seen sprinting through the streets during chases with Shizuo, as fifty or more cats trailed behind him. Shiki had to schedule meetings with him that took place at Izaya’s apartment rather than the car, as they were unable to drive when surrounded by so many cats.

And so life went on exactly as it did before, only now, Orihara Izaya had an army of cats.

Hello! I'm planning to get a cat soon bc I find them suPER CUTE But I have a dog right now (who is just as cute!) so I won't be getting the cat very soon. I just wanted to ask what can a person do to stop them from breaking or ripping things and getting into places they shouldn't be? Sorry for asking here it's just that you're one of the only people I know of who has a cat

hi! you can try to get a scratching post and just saying “no”, I also heard of using an air or water spray whenever the cat does something it shouldn’t, or even to cover in tinfoil surfaces you don’t want the cat to walk on bc some of them find it annoying, but there’s really no guarantee any of these will work;

I don’t think we ever managed preventing her from doing something she shouldn’t until she got out of that habit herself hahaa (and she still chews my agaves despite the thorns like a dumbass)

it also depends a lot from the cat’s personality and how willing they are to listen, some cats are also little shits and to things just to annoy you, for example my cat scratches the chair to get my dad’s attention and does that only when he’s in the room lmao

(you can also keep rooms with breakable stuff in them closed when you’re not around just to be safe!)

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: where are all the normal animals in the Pokemon universe? they have to exist somewhere, or classifications like "Mouse Pokemon" or "Cat Pokemon" wouldn't be used. and if humans use animals as a point of reference when describing Pokemon instead of the other way around, shouldn't that mean that normal animals would be more common? shouldn't we have at least seen maybe a stray dog, a flock of birds, or some populous insects like flies or bees? doesn't it make more sense for there to be more non-superpowered creatures on the planet anyway, which is what would make Pokemon so special and miraculous in the first place? are normal animals hunted by humans, Pokemon, AND other animals? is that how they explain humans eating meat without saying they're eating the semi-intelligent and extremely powerful creatures they claim to love and support as trainers? do humans raise animals solely to be slaughtered for theirs and their Pokemon's food without tending to the natural balance of hunters and prey in the wild? have animals been hunted to near-extinction? is that why we never see any, even though there's evidence of their existence? will carnivorous Pokemon turn to other food sources once their natural prey has been depleted? is there an impending war to determine the new natural order looming on the horizon of the Pokemon universe's future?
