WE’RE GETTING ANOTHER BABYYYY!! She’s a 10 year old fat ass tabby cat who was left in a box outside the shelter. She’s literally the fattest cat I’ve ever seen and she’s so stinkin precious and the first time we met her, she put her head in my hands and fell asleep and I fell head over heels in love.
But we can’t pick a name! We were going between Mabel and Gertie (Gertrude) but we just don’t feel like we’ve gotten the right name yet. We’re going for either a drag queen name (to fit with Ru’s name, obviously) or an old lady name. Comic book lady names are also accepted ☺️Help us pick!
“You guys know what shadow people are, right? The name kind of gives it away. They’re shadows and also people, look like a silhouette, you get the idea.
Anyway, this was back when I was maybe 10 or 11 years old. I’m over at a friend’s place and we go out back in the forest behind his house. We walking through some tall brush, when out of the corner of my eye, I see what looks like the silhouette of a head and shoulders rise over the brush. I ignore it, thinking I was just seeing things.
A short while later, we’re out on a wide trail, when something darts across the path in front of us. It looked like the silhouette of a man, hunched over, running from one side to the other, somehow leaving the plants on either side were perfectly intact.
My friend turns to me and goes, “holy shit, did you see that?” I did, and we got out of that forest as fast as we could. We sat in his house, terrified, and I mentioned the head and shoulders I initially saw. Turns out he saw them too, and just ignored them like I did. What we saw still freaks me out to this day, nearly 10 years later, because we never really knew what we saw.”
