’So who were these Persians!?’ (Iranian history 101 from Larry Gonick’s ‘A Cartoon History of the Universe, Volume 1’ (1990). Unfortunately, as the term 'Aryan’ was appropriated and misused by the Nazis - who weren’t Aryan whatsoever - it has become in non-academic circles misunderstood. It simply - and only - referred/refers to the Iranian and northern Indian peoples, Iran literally meaning 'Land of the Aryans’) ✨🔥 #iran #iranian #persia #persian #medes #aryan #nazisgohome (at Iran)

MaxFund Animal Adoption Center Denver, CO

Hello, my name is Heart Breaker. I was brought to the shelter in January 2015 when my owners couldn’t take care of me anymore. I was shortly adopted but was returned a few months later because for some reason I could not make it to the litter box. My second owner was very sad to get rid of me and I was very sad without her. I have been seen by the vet here at the shelter and they have come to the conclusion that I have a medical issue, so now I am on a special diet for urinary health for the remainder of my life. I would love to find a home that is willing to deal with an occasional accident and a special diet. I used to be free roaming here before I was on a special diet but now I am in a kennel looking for my forever home! Come to the shelter to see me today!

Last weekend Hasel and I made this little Persian for a good friend of ours.

He has been in the making for quite a while, but life happened and such. But since we’re going to Jointed Hearts in Sweden soon, I wanted to try to cast some more parts to see if I can make some creatures to bring with me.
Our friend is going through some tough stuff and I’d be seeing her the next day, so Hasel said we should make her cat, while I was there anyway.

So this is the first completed creature and we and our friend love him. We couldn’t stop laughing when we put the last pieces together. Our friend lost her mind when she unpacked him, it was great.
This is good motivation to try and finish some more creatures and I hope I can muster the energy.

I’m working on another Persian, a two headed goat and probably two sloths.
