i want your cat

anonymous asked:

thank you so much for what you said, i definitely don’t deserve it. also i realize i didn’t clarify that this is in fact me, and i figured i’d prove it by saying that one of the times i remade my blog, we were sending private asks back and forth and you said you screamed so loud you woke up your cat, and i don’t want the blame for what i did going on anyone else. thank you again for the unbelievable amount of mercy you’ve shown me

hey, you’re welcome. at the end of the day, you were just a kid who got trapped in wasi’s mess, and while i don’t condone your actions, i admire your strength coming forward. and thank you! i was taking your submission with a grain of salt, but i do vividly remember that happening. so—that’s all the proof i need that you are, at least, the person behind mari’s blog.

I want your low laugh, the wistful tone of voice when you told me stories about your home, lying in the desert otherworld, making shapes out of the unfamiliar stars. I don't want the tired anger in your voice when you'd shout at me that you had things that MATTERED, that weren't me, back through some door I couldn't go through, because it was better and cleaner if I just stayed in the fucking desert, you monster! I can't believe you never cared about me at all! ... I don't want to find you.

HAPPY (Late) BIRTHDAY @nekophy !!!

Sorry ‘im late! I want to finish it yesterday but damn i’m kinda busy and stuck with deadline aaaaaa  (/;◇;)/

But i hope you like this and had a nice day, Senpaii !!  (. づ ㅇㅅㅇ)づ.♡ ♡♡♡

so i was at work today and these two really cute guys came in and got burrito bowls. we were really busy so i wasn’t talking to people nearly as much as usual but one of the guys tells me that they’re on the same check and hands me a coupon. so i go to hand them their food and i hear one of them say “wow! only $6.50? i’m such a cheap date” and he winks at the guy who paid. (and at this point im like, aww that’s cute, but i don’t think much of it.) so i give them their bag and, since we were out of markers and we couldn’t label the bowls, i made eye contact with one of them and told him he was on top and, i shit you not, he just smirks at the other guy and goes “as usual!”

some people: we don’t let our pets on the furniture!!

me, to my cats: is there any chance you can find it in your hearts to move your small fluffy bodies that occupy an almost unfathomable amount of space and make room for me on the couch?

My mum is so savage lmao

My cat was jumping in a binbag so I was trying to get a picture and when my mum asked why I was so determined I said that I wanted to be relatable and post it saying “when your cat is you” and then my mum WITHOUT HESITATION replies “let’s put him in a closet then”

I AM STILL SHOOK

Cat Cosplay Update

Some of you may have noticed that for the first time in the 2 years we’ve been doing this it’s been 2 months without a new costume. I wanted to update everyone on what’s going on.

I love doing Cat Cosplay, and I love that joy that we’ve been able to spread by doing it. But it has become WAY more work that I ever realized it would be when we started our small little fun accounts a few years ago. Up until September I lived by the idea that we could likely do any project, and we have been able to figure things out and get it done despite an oppressive work schedule at my real day job. September we failed at a major build, one I should not have taken on. It didn’t help that my work schedule jumped to 50-60 hrs (it’s been that way for the last couple months so I don’t know if it will change either.)

Regardless failing on that build after a week of 4 hr sleep nights and bringing ourselves to the edge really kicked in my depression and killed my creativity. I’ve struggled with not beating myself up over failing to produce things for you all. I had promised a Loki build years ago and have all the items to make one but couldn’t wrap my mind around the build in time to finish it. I owe another creator a small animal build on an art trade that is 75% done, but I keep trying to perfect it and keep screwing it up. I promised a tutorial for the Zombie cat but couldn’t decide if I should do a strait tutorial using the more expensive materials I used or try to adapt it with foam/cardboard for a cheap “Everyone can make this” build.

I keep second guessing myself, partially starting, beating myself up, and then running out of the very little creative free time that I have in a week.

I’m getting better. I’m pulling myself out of this depression and I’m starting to craft. But I’ve also decided that I am more inspired to work for you all. That doesn’t mean I won’t work with other companies like I have in the past to fund the costs of this blog, but it means that I would rather do builds that you all vote on. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t look at the builds that you all request in our messages or inbox, and most of those are builds we want to do ourselves. So we’re going to give something a try.

I’m going to give in and start a Patrion where people can vote on a monthly build, and we’ll give updates and progress on how we’re doing that build as we make it. We’re going to start with small tiers for just the ability to vote but I was thinking exclusive HD Pictures and if people have other idea’s we’re open to them. I’m terrified of this but I want to give it a shot.

I’ve come to the conclusion that if I want to Stream on Twitch, if I want to do more content I need to upgrade my computer and crafting setup, and with medical bills stacking up this appears as if my only avenue to attempt to bring the content that people have asked for in the past.

Thoughts?

other tips for new cat owners / people who may get cats soon:

no, getting a grown cat won’t be boring / less cute! they’ll become just as attached to you as a kitten. get a cat that speaks to you (literally or figuratively, maybe you want a cat that’s chatty). older cats will be so appreciative to have a home. 
people get rid of their cats for all kinds of unfair reasons. just the ones i’ve seen on the craigslist listings in the last 5 minutes: “i am just more of a dog person (7mo old kitten)”, “we hoped she would get over her kittenish behavior, she has not (2yr old cat)”, “i need to get rid of my cat before my baby is born (3yr old cat)”.
you can totally pick up a beautiful, loving, grown up kitty who will be needing some comfort after getting dumped. just look at this girl.

(taken off craigslist) she would be more than happy to live her cat life with you. is she not cute? she is. she is cute. so, ultimately, adopt whatever cat you like, but don’t rule out older cats!

nextly: no no, do NOT declaw your cat. DON’T DO IT. I’M TELLIN YA.
it’s a deeply painful procedure, actually removing the entire first knuckle, not JUST the nail. it causes long-term and potentially permanent pain in the cat, and can lead to nasty infections, behavioral problems, and helplessness if they ever find themselves outside and in need of protection or climbing abilities.
“but i don’t want my cat to scratch me / my kid / my furniture!” okay, i feel you, but there are other, cheaper, less inhumane options. my favorite of which are claw caps.

you gently press on your cat’s foot (to unsheath their claws), and place the soft cap onto their claw using the glue that’s included in any soft paw kit you get. it might take some getting used to on the cat’s part, but it should under no circumstances be painful, and when the kitty’s claws grow, the cap just kinda falls off, and you’ll put another one on.
you can also file or clip their nails down! if you’re too nervous or clumsy to do it, your vet will usually do it for a small fee, or a groomer can take care of it. Personally, I just let my cats’ claws hang out and accept the pokes when they knead on me, since i don’t have any little babies or expensive upholstery in my home. 

No, cats ain’t “low maintenance”. This is a living, social creature, not a chiapet. Especially if you’re raising them from kittenhood, they need a lot of attention and resources. cuddles, playtime, training, health care, feeding, cleaning up their facilities. you get a pet to interact with, not to buy and leave it be! a cat that you don’t socialize is going to be very moody and sad. get a pet if you plan to invest the time and energy they need- if not, maybe we can come back to that cactus idea? 

Cats need meat. I repeat, cats cannot survive without meat. Dogs need meat too- but cats are incapable of creating taurine in their own, and where do you find taurine? meat! hallelujah!! 
Feeding cats a vegan or vegetarian diet is a slow form of starvation and animal abuse. If you’re not comfortable feeding an animal meat, please do not adopt a carnivore. There are plenty of vegetarian mammals that you would be much better suited owning, but do not abuse your cats just because of your own feelings about protein. 
Without enough taurine in a cat’s diet, severe health problems will follow, like blindness, weak and decaying teeth, weak heart, and digestive issues. This is terrible. This objectively sucks. So pretty please give your cat a proper diet!

It’s way way safer to have an indoor cat. I don’t need you to tell me that you want your cat to be with you for many years, ‘cause I already know you do. Outdoor cats are exposed to wild animals, animal abusers, poisonous substances, cars, harsh weather, kidnapping, and diseases. Cats like rolling around in grass and grabbing birds from trees, and that’s great, but having an outdoor cat makes for a steep decrease in their estimated lifespan. The average lifespan of an indoor cat is 16.8 years, whereas outdoor cats average out to a hard-hitting 5.6. Ouch. 
So it’s definitely safer to keep a cat indoors! If you’re adopting a young kitten, it won’t be hard, since they won’t be expecting outdoor time already. If you’re still really into that whole grass idea, you should totally grow some indoor grass for your cat to chill in. 

good.

that’s everything i can think of for the moment, but please don’t be afraid to do your own research on animal care. there are tons of resources out there, and if you have a good vet, they’ll answer any questions you have! 

thank you for readin’ about cat care. as a reward, i’m adding a picture of toby as a baby. enjoy.
