I found this little cutie on my porch when I got home last week. She is very sweet and has a collar with no name or phone number. I took her to the vet to check for a microchip and she doesn’t have one :( I am taking care of her for now, but she needs a proper home. I already have 2 cats and my landlord won’t allow any more (plus my apartment is tiny and 3 cats would be very unhappy there). i’ve made facebook posts looking for her owner and so far nothing. That’s why I’m taking to tumblr to help find her a forever home.
She’s always waiting for me when I get home from work and runs up ready to be loved.
I spend time with her every day, bring her treats, keep her water clean, and give her food. She has never tried to bite or be vicious, she loves to cuddle and even lets me hold her. She has a torn up collar, tries to come inside with me, and looks through the window at me when I’m inside. It’s clear that she was an indoor cat before someone left her in my neighborhood. I’ve cried multiple times leaving her outside because I love her so much and know that I can’t help her.
If anyone is interested in adopting her please message me. I am willing to drive a bit to meet someone in order to get her to a safe home. I really don’t want to take her to the shelter (it’s known to be high kill) so please share this and help me find her a forever home. She loves to curl up with me and purr and be loved. She’s beautiful and has a lot of love to give. I can’t just leave her outside like this, it’s truly breaking my heart. Please please help me find her a home.
If you want to help me take care of her my paypal is paypal.me/actruett. Please don’t feel obligated to donate, but I really want to get her a flea collar or topical medicine and I cannot afford to feed her and my other two cats. Again, only donate if you can and if you want reciepts of what I buy I can do that.
Our good pal Jon showed us around The Sunflower Center, a community garden located in the Glenwood neighborhood, run by ten people who identify as queer or trans.
As Jon put it, “The garden exists to combat the aspect of food insecurity in our community - we are not trying to solve food insecurity but trying to solve food sovereignty; talking to folks in the area about what they want to eat and bringing power to the community by having a say in what grows in the garden and then having access to that food. Our end goal is to not only feed the community but to provide education through farming in the area so folks can learn how to grow food in their own neighborhood.”
Unlike most projects, even our own, this group of people has managed to use very limited resources to create a garden that actually does engage the community. We spent a couple hours today helping with watering, weeding, and some transplants spending time with each and every row but what stood out most was the amount of people walking by who stopped to talk. Some people were new to the project and others Jon knew by name but every single one of them thanked Jon for being a part of putting a garden in Glenwood. One man spent ten minutes talking with Jon reflecting on his childhood in the country and how even there he didn’t see plants THIS alive and beautiful. They talked about the food he was most interested in and set up a future time to make a trade. My experience today left me with the impression that for a lot of people, walking by this garden everyday, is a beacon of hope and inspiration.
We wish this project and this group nothing but luck with their season. It is heart warming to see our peers getting involved and achieving success!!
The sit-in method saw renewed use in the civil-rights movement. A pivotal moment came in 1960, when African-American college students staged a sit-in at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina.
