a/n: This is set during season 1 

• You are older than both Kara and Alex

• You met Cat through Kara 

• You kept coming around to CatCo to visit Kara but also secretly to see Cat 

• Cat invited you to a nice dinner at some expensive restaurant you never heard of

• It was her way of asking you out on a date without calling it a date

• You didn’t tell Kara about you and Cat at first because you didn’t know how she would feel about her brother and her boss dating

• She found out when you were bringing Cat lunch one day when Kara was supposed to be off

• “Kara what are you doing here? I thought you had today off.”

• “I had to pick up some stuff from my desk… why are you here? And why do you have so much food?”

• “It’s for Cat… we’re kind of dating”

• She was shocked to say the least but got over it

• If you’re happy she’s happy

• Cat finally started calling Kara by her real name

• “Why didn’t she ever say her name wasn’t Kiera?”

• “I’m sure she did Cat” 

• Visits to CatCo can be awkward sometimes because they both think you are there to see them

• You have to make room to spend time with both of them 

• Some of Kara’s co-workers, especially Winn, tease her about her brother dating her boss

• They like to call Cat her future ‘in-law' 

“People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an organization that publicly claims to represent the best interest of animals – indeed their “ethical treatment.” Yet approximately 2,000 animals pass through PETA’s front door every year and very few make it out alive. The vast majority – 96 percent in 2011 – exit the facility out the back door after they have been killed, when Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater stops by on their regular visits to pick up their remains. Between these visits, the bodies are stored in the giant walk-in freezer PETA installed for this very purpose. It is a freezer that cost $9,370 and, like the company which incinerates the bodies of PETA’s victims, was paid for with the donations of animal lovers who could never have imagined that the money they donated to help animals would be used to end their lives instead. In fact, in the last 11 years, PETA has killed 29,426 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other domestic animals.”

“A supermarket dumpster full of garbage bags. When police officers looked inside, they found the bodies of dead animals – animals killed by PETA. PETA described these animals as “adorable” and “perfect.” A veterinarian who naively gave PETA some of the animals, thinking they would find them homes, and examined the dead bodies of others, testified that they were “healthy” and “adoptable."”

“The PETA field killing kit found by police in the back of the PETA death van in Ahsokie, North Carolina.”

“An Ahsokie Police Detective dressed in a hazmat suit prepares to bury a puppy killed by PETA. This puppy and dozens of other animals including cats and kittens were found by police throughout June of 2005 after PETA employees dumped them in a garbage bin in North Carolina.’”

“Puppies killed by PETA in the back of a van – a donor-funded slaughterhouse on wheels. Despite $35,000,000 in annual revenues and millions of "animal-loving” members, PETA does not even try to find them homes. PETA has no adoption hours, does no adoption promotion, has no adoption floor, but is registered with the State of Virginia as a “humane society” or “animal shelter."”

“Not only does PETA kill animals, they also defend the killing of animals by others. This is a dying kitten in a Houston shelter after staff "lost” the kitten. When he was found, he was near death. His last hours were ones of suffering.”

“A puppy dying of parvovirus in the Houston shelter is not given anything soft to lie on as she urinates all over herself. Here she sits, unable to keep her head up, alone in a cold, barren stainless steel cage without receiving necessary veterinary care. Other shelters have a better than 90% rate of saving dogs with parvovirus.”

“The PETA solution: dead “feral” cats in a Florida shelter. PETA successfully defeated SB 1320, a law that would have clarified that nonlethal programs to neuter and release feral cats, rather than killing them, are legal in Florida. As shelters and health departments nationwide embrace trap-neuter-release programs, PETA remains a stalwart opponent of this humane alternative to killing, arguing that healthy feral cats should continue to be killed, even urging their supporters to take them to shelters or veterinarians to do so. The PETA website states that, “the most compassionate choice is to euthanize feral cats. You can ask your veterinarian to do this or, if your local shelter uses an injection of sodium pentobarbital, take the cats there.” This shelter used “an injection of sodium pentobarbital,” killing the cats in front of other cats, catch-poling the cats as they tried to flee while they urinated and defecated all over the kennel in fear. That is how terrified feral cats behave in shelters. Apparently to PETA, this is as it should be.”

“A cat in the King County, Washington shelter begs for food and water. Cats in the infirmary were not fed or given water over a three-day holiday weekend and both their food bowls and water bowls are empty. Although staff was assigned to the shelter, supervisors and staff chose to socialize instead. I was hired by the King County Council to assess the shelter. My advice: Hire supervisors who are not part of the same union so as to eliminate conflicts of interest; all staff should be given a checklist of assigned duties; and supervisors should double check that those duties have been done. In a letter to the King County Council, PETA told officials not to listen to me because I was “radical.” Read the full article Written By: Nathan J.

Cats are the guardians of the underworld. Humans took cats in to manage pests, but cats believe this includes supernatural pests. At night cats protect against malicious spirits and send them back to hell.

natgeoVideo by @joelsartore | Palawan leopard cats can be found on Palawan Island in the Philippines. They are about the size of a domestic cat but slightly leaner with distinct black markings on their heads and webbed toes. They’re solitary and spend a lot of their time resting in trees when they aren’t hunting for small mammals, birds and amphibians. They are capable of hybridizing with domestic cats, producing the popular pet breed, bengal cats. Though it’s illegal to hunt leopard cats in many countries including the Philippines, they’re still sold in the pet trade and their parts are distributed for decoration and use traditional ‘medicine’. Leopard cats are wild animals are are absolutely not suitable as household pets.

BNHA Week. Day 1: Character(s)

Shinsou and Aizawa when anybody says anything bad about cats.

Reference used.

bouncing off the previous reblog, if you want to create a chromatic aberration effect in clip studio paint, the steps are the same but the layer mode you want is darken as opposed to ‘shade’.

I just made a little auto action which will set up the layers for you:

You can download it here, to use it open the auto actions window (window > auto actions), and right click > import set…

alternatively you can drag the file into the auto actions window.


and while on the subject of auto actions, you can create a shortcut for them by going to file > shortcut settings…, then choosing auto action from the dropdown

Ned sits up in bed suddenly, nearly giving Cat a heart attack. She thought he’d been asleep, so when he turns to her, almost completely alert, the last thing she expects him to say is: “If we include Lyanna and Jon and Theon, we’d have enough for a parent-child softball team.”

Cat clutches her book to her chest, heart still hammering. “That’s nice, Ned. Go to sleep,” she commands, hoping he’ll forget…whatever this is in the morning. Ned has wanted enough kids to fill a softball team since they were in college. He’d been devastated when Cat put her foot down after Rickon.

He rolls over and is snoring in ten seconds flat. Catelyn sighs in relief. Maybe he’d forget. This could all be behind them in the morning.

anonymous asked:

What do I do if someone tries to steal my art?

Do you mean, what do you do if someone tries to take credit for your art, like if they post it on their page and claims they drew it?  Or do you mean, what do you do if someone reposts/uploads it elsewhere?

If they claimed they drew your picture, report them immediately.  They know what they did and they did it anyway.  (Same goes for tracing, IMO.  Traced art should NOT be posted online; that’s plagiarism)  

For reposting (aka. someone else uploading your art onto a different website such as Instagram) you should first decide what your reposting policy will be.  

  • Some artists allow people to post their art on different websites if they ask for permission.  
  • Some artists don’t require people to ask for permission but ask that they credit/link back to their website.  
  • Some artists only allow reposting on certain websites, but not others such as Youtube, which can be used to make money off of others’ artwork.
  • Some artists want their work to stay on their own website only, and don’t want other people to post elsewhere. (aka no reposting, period)  

One thing you will want to do is make sure you write down your reposting policy on your blog, somewhere easy to find, like the front page, or on your About Me/Info, etc.  

Another thing is SIGN YOUR ARTWORK, it is soooo important!  People aren’t always going to follow the rules.  They might have a repost of a repost of a repost they saw on Google somewhere and they won’t know where it originally came from because most people don’t bother to check. 

Large signatures/watermarks can be kind of an eyesore (plus you’ll feel kind of bad you have to “ruin” your artwork), but you have to make sure it’ll still be visible enough even after the quality of the picture is turned to crap because it’s been screenshotted like 20 bajillion times on instagram.  

Also, “unsightly” signatures/watermarks can help protect your picture from people using them in more nefarious ways, such as trying to sell t-shirts with YOUR design, or tote bags, mouse pads, etc.  Yes, they can still try to Photoshop them out, but if you put them somewhere difficult to remove then they probably won’t do a good job and it’ll look ugly.  So it’s worth a shot!

(I actually really love seeing watermarks/signatures because then I know where to go visit the artist and give them love directly)  

Anyway, I hope this helps!
