scratch boards

One of my art assignments was to do a scratchboard piece based off of a comic page, and this one’s mine, because, you know, I really like Over the Garden Wall.

She’s front declawed (we didn’t know how bad it was at the time) but she loves to rub her paws on things so I got her a scratching board. She likes to lay on it and scream at me. My other cat (also front declawed) uses it too, so I guess this is proof that declawed cats still enjoy scratching boards?

Well yours certainly seem to. There must be something about the texture that they like or find novel.

anonymous asked:

For the prompt thing, could you do 29 or 30 Ereannie OR 1 or 4 Jeankasa? I love your fics, they're always so good!

Prompt 4: “Do you…well…I mean…I could give you a massage?” 

Jeankasa fluff, ft. jean being a nervous wreck. 


He couldn’t stop staring at her. Not that that was different from any other day; Mikasa Ackerman was a glorious sight to behold, be it when she was slaying titans, riding off into the sunset on a horse, or simply standing by Eren’s side. Everything she did, she did with precision and refinement, honing her body into the shape he knew even the men of the Survey Corp wish they had. In Jean’s eyes, she was perfect. Yes, she did have her flaws, as any human being would, but he acknowledged them too. It didn’t make her any less magnificent to him.

But that was not the reason for his staring this time. This time, he stared, because she kept fidgeting on the chair she sat in. Her lips pursed, and her brows furrowed, like she was uncomfortable with something. Was it the chair? Eren, the idiot, hardly picked up on her fidgetiness, his back was turned to her, and he was chatting excitedly with Armin about the Ocean they’d seen months back. The rest of the dinner table didn’t notice a thing either.

Captain Levi sipped at his black tea, ignoring the rest of the world, Commander Hange discussed base tactics with her new underling over some bread and beans. Sasha was too busy chowing down to pay anyone attention, and Connie…Well, Connie never really picked up on anything until it was too late.

So, there was Jean. He decided he’d wait until everyone else cleared the table and went to kitchen duty, while the veterans headed to bed. Then he’d find out what was eating away at Mikasa.

College AU! Kuroo
  • major: biochemistry
  • minor: kinesiology (learning about anatomy and how to be healthy, etc.)
  • clubs / sports: vice captain of the volleyball team
  • he would take in another club but he has already has to juggle kinesiology, biochemistry, and volleyball.
  • speaking of kinesiology, he would much rather take that as major than biochemistry, but he has to because he can’t really afford to switch just yet.
  • he can barely get himself a full meal every single day, so yeah he can’t really afford it right now
  • he has a part-time job at a gym though that helps him gain money to eat.
  • however, he is very good at biochemistry. his professors compliment him because he sets quite the example despite his looks (he comes into his morning classes with the peak of his bedhead, and a straw in a pot of coffee).
  • as for kinesiology, he excels at it. those professors love how attentive he is during class and his papers are very detailed. what they don’t know is that he likes to study ahead of the class and decides that if what they’re learning is something he already knows, he naps in class.
  • since he’s got the smarts in kinesiology, he applies it to volleyball practices. it’s what makes him vice-captain.
  • the team loves him so much because he’s always so helpful especially when they need to plan what kind of workouts to train with.
  • mr. ushijima (as kuroo calls him) praises him for being so helpful as well. kuroo loves the small moments when he’s complimented by him.
  • but anyway, back to the kinesiology/biochem ace, one day he sleeps throughout the whole analytical chemistry class because of some late training the previous night. the professor doesn’t seem to notice, but you, the person sitting next to him, do.
  • you knew him, his face at least. the professors smile at him all the time when he walks in. however, you don’t think the professor will be smiling when he finds out he’s sleeping in class especially in one you’ve seen him somewhat struggle in.
  • you decide to do him a favor because 1.) you don’t want to see this specific professor yell at him 2.) he probably needs the help. also his cute sleeping face was kinda distracting you, but thA t’ S not importan T right now.
  • so you see that he has post-it notes next to his notebook, so you slide over and start writing.
  • skip forward 15 minutes, kuroo wakes up just as class ends and everyone’s packing up. it was then he realizes he missed a lot of info on chromatography and he’s flipping out. just before the light leaves his eyes, he spots a notebook with a post-it on it saying ‘saw you sleeping in class, thought these notes would help! it starts pg. 72. just return the notebook tomorrow on the back desk closest to the door. from a helpful person’
  • so he leaves the room, stranger’s notebook in hand, reading away. in his head, he’s just thinking ‘this person’s handwriting is really neat! better than mine..’
  • once he’s done with all his classes, he heads back to his dorm, copying the notes into his own thinking. he hears bokuto slam the door and stomps behind kuroo, obviously looking over his shoulder. bokuto’s all like ‘dude, who’s notebook is that? it certainly isn’t yours because your handwriting’s like chicken scratch.’ cue kuroo elbowing him “lightly" in the gut.
  • next day, he heads to ana-chem again and places the foreign notebook on the back desk closest to the door as instructed. he sits down at his normal seat, which thankfully wasn’t too far from the door because he wanted to see who this ‘helpful person’ was.
  • he waits and waits and waits, until the professor finally walks in through the doors near the front of the class. the helpful person finally walks in. he stares up until the professor starts the lecture. kuroo could barely face forward, but sadly,,, he needs the notes,,
  • class finally ends and kuroo’s walking towards you and in his head, he’s like ‘how the fuck do i thank them,, what approach should i go for?? polite and subtle, or should i thank them quickly?? well they’re right there so here goes buddy’
  • you close your notebook that was returned to you and as you stand up, you see sleepy head right there in front of you. he’s so fucking awkward because he doesn’t know what to say without sounding like an ass, so he just stands there staring at you for what seems to be a century. and you’re there like ‘o h GO D he’s so much cuter when he’s awakE oh fucking hell i need to stop’ in your head.
  • you finally start by saying ‘so.. were the notes helpful?’ and, he’s so flustered because he was supposed to be the one starting and was in the middle of planning out the entire conversation and in his head, he’s like ‘fucK MAYDAY MAYDAY THIS IS NOT HOW IT WAS SUPPOSED TO GO’, but outwardly, he’s like ‘oh yeah, very helpful. you saved my butt there yesterday with the chromatography notes. thank you.’
  • you nearly chuckle at how awkward he actually was. an awkward cutie. uHG FUCK STOP THAT.
  • ‘oh yeah, no problem, no big deal.’ you smile at him and he feels his heart skipped a beat, but in his mind he’s like ‘fuck fuck fucking calm down, they’re just being nice stop’. while he’s having this small inner conflict, he ends up staring at you.
  • so then mid-stare, you realize that you’re the only two in the classroom since it is technically lunch right now, so then you’re like ‘uh, it was nice talking to you’ and head out of the classroom, but rather than leaving too, he just goes off to follow you because he still doesn’t know your name??
  • you’re confused for a couple seconds and are like ‘you didn’t look in the notebook for my name?’. for a couple seconds again, you manage to leave him blank, as in ‘oh’ blank. then suddenly he snaps back into reality like ‘i’m kuroo tetsurou’. you nod with another bright smile and leave, saying ‘nice to meet you kuroo’
  • this time he doesn’t go after you
  • but by the time night falls, by god, he wished he did. bokuto too because he can’t handle kuroo just sweetly smiling at his notebook anymore.
  • so then a couple days (and hours of kuroo thinking about you) later, when bokuto is finally free from studying, he secretly follows kuroo into the lecture hall to finally end is his odd daydreaming about his notebook. (and by secretly, i mean he rolls around in the school lawn while hiding behind bushes and attracting so much attention)
  • ‘bokuto, what are you doing?’ ‘ssssHSHHH AKAASHi, I’m following kuroo’ ‘Okay, I’ll be on my way to my class then’
  • kuroo enters and sits down in the second row from the back, and bokuto army crawls in, hoodie on his head, face mask on, sunglasses on and sits in the seat behind kuroo.
  • Moments later, enter you. kuroo waves. bokuto finds his target.
  • In a flash, bokuto has unsheathed from under his disguise and is bombarding you with questions.
  • ‘Hi!!!’ 'uh,,, hi?’ 'did you lend a notebook to my BEST friend over there by any chance’ he says as points to kuroo.
  • Who, by the way, still hasn’t processed the entire situation yet.
  • ‘kuroo? yeah i di-‘ ‘great! will you go on a date with him?’
  • kuroo’s like !!! !  ! ! !  ! BOKU TO WH  AT AR E YO U DOING???? !!! and he’s basically climbing over desks to get to you two, with his face so red, and you’re like what. wHAT. WHAT ARE YOU SERIOUS. bo’s just staring at you with pleading eyes like holy shit, you can feel that he really means well with this, so then by the time kuroo’s trying to hold bokuto back, you’re just like ‘yes. i mean, yeah sure. i wouldn’t mind a date.’ but inside you’re exploding like yeS THE SLEEPY CUTE BOY WANTS TO GO ON A DATE, and then you realize that you’re not even sure if he’s okay with it,
  • but judging the dorky smile on his face, it’s probably an okay
  • so then a couple days later, you both go on a date at the movie theater. you both bicker for a little bit about what movie to watch, but then you come to a consensus with Finding Dory, who wouldn’t? you’re all laughing at the movie and you are very much focused on the movie. kuroo on the other hand, he wants to make a move? like he’s fucking sweating out on what he should do
  • should i hold their hand? should i just barely brush our shoulders together? shouLD I LEAN IN A LITTLE?
  • all the while he’s shitting his pants over what he should do, you notice his staring because yes, he was staring. once again, super you has to come to the rescue to save the distressed kuroo. very casually, you slide your hand into his.
  • kuroo has little meltdown because omG WHAT HAPPENED I WASn’T EVEN payiNG ATTENTION?? so then, he’s trying to focus on the movie this time but youR HAND WAS LITERALLY IN HIS????? again, you sense this and give his hand a little squeeze. he relaxes and the rest of the movie goes without a hitch.
  • after the movie’s after and he’s driving you home, he’s got his cat-like smirk on his face and you have this weird feeling because you’re used to seeing a dorky boy, not some hoT GUY like fuck when did he have muscles??? so then, he sneaks a look at you a couple times.
  • okay, more than a couple times and you’re just ‘what? what is it? do i have a popcorn kernel stuck in my teeth?’ and he’s shaking his head, ‘nothing, nothing. it’s just that you started holding my hand in the middle of the movie. a little forward, wasn’t it?’. he was full on cheshire cat grinning at you, so then you were like ‘kU ROO TETSUROU, SHUT UP OKAY AND FOCUS ON ThE ROAD’
  • this ensues a little chuckle from him (not the full on laugh because that sounds like cats scratching a black board), but holy shit,,, it was like hearing angels sing,,,,,,
  • and you’re just looking at him like, that’s so fucking ethereal,,, and he catches it, causing ‘what? are you falling hard for me? hm? hmmm? hmmmmmmmmm???’ ‘SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP’
  • so you both go on roughly 2 or 3 dates after this one, because you loved his presence. he made you feel relaxed.
  • one day, you’re both walking around the campus a few hours before the sun sets. it wasn’t an official date. he just happened to see walking back to your dorm and just wanted to walk around with you. but anyway, the whole time, neither of you don’t talk. you’re both just walking around, enjoying each’s company, holding hands.
  • until at some point, kuroo’s like ‘oh right, i have a game tomorrow.’ and you’re like ‘game????’. he’s like oh yeah,,, forgot to mention, i’m the vice-captain of the volleyball team.
  • you just stop walking. and he’s like i’m sorry i didn’t tell you sooner… but your eyes are practically glowing as you step up to him. as in there’s only a 3 inch space between your faces, and you’re like ‘can i go to one of your games??’.
  • he doesn’t realize but his heart is beating out of his chest because out of all the previous people he has dated, you’re probably the only one who was very enthusiastic about volleyball. yes, of course, most of them were supportive, but none of them were truly intrigued by the game. so then his only response is ‘yeah, sure. i wouldn’t mind having you cheer me on.’
  • and then when you smile, he feels his heart skip a beat because omg,, that smile can kill. but of course, he needs calm himself down, so he says ‘did anyone ever tell you that you have stars in your eyes?’ ‘sappy,,,’ ‘HEy!’
  • so fast forward to the next day, you arrive there for their warm ups. you walk up to the railing of the bleachers and start waving at kuroo, and he looks up at you with a smirk and a nod. at thiS POINT YOU’RE TELLING YOUR HEART TO CALM DOWN BECAUSE JFC.
  • and bokuto sees you in the stands and he’s just like “AKKASAHI KAKASAShI !!!! THAT’S THE PERSON I WAS TELLING YOU ABOUT !!! THE PERSON I HOOKED KUROO WITH!!!!” and then kuroo’s embarrassed like bRO WAHT THE F UC J ARE YOU DoING
  • and you’re there slowly going down in your seat and even though you don’t know this Akaashi person that well, other than Kuroo mentioning him a few time, you could tell it was the person bowing toward you and telling Bokuto to be quiet.
  • then after warm ups, they start the game. they’re apparently going against this college in miyagi?? but anyway, your college’s team is in the lead by 2 points and it’s the second set with the score being 1-0 so far.
  • and you’re sitting there with so much interest and happiness, but also at the same time, you’re sweating out of your shoes??? because the look in kuroo’s eyes is so alluring??? anD HIS MUSCLES?? AND LIKE SWEAT?? ON HIS MUSCLES?? WHAT THE FCUKC?????
  • AND LIKE, EVERY ONCE AND A WHILE, BETWEEN SERVES, HE STARES AT YOU WITH THIS FIERCE LOOK IN HIS EYES AND YOU’RE JUST LIKE,,,,  MO R   E S W    EA TI N G HHA A HA
  • he looks so happy and you feel so blessed?? like yes he’s happy on dates with you, but you still treasure all his genuine smiles and what the fuck is he doing to you???
  • before you know it, your team wins????? liKE HOLY SHIT THAT WAS AMAZING??? kuROO’S ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC HOLY SHIT?????? AND YOU’RE JUST CLAPPING AND CHEERING
  • AND THEN WHILE YOU’RE CHEERING, KUROO LOOKS UP AT YOU FOR 13896237TH TIME AND AFTER HE’S FACING TOwARDS THE CROWD TO GO THANK THEM FOR BEING THERE TO WATCH THE GAME, HE WALKS UP TO THE STANDS (which aren’t like the stands in the series okay? imagine lower ones, metal ones, school ones.)
  • so he climbs up slightly so his face is a little over the railing and you stand up and he’s telling you to lean in so then he can tell you something. so then you bend over a little more, theN HE LEANS UP??
  • LIKE HOLY FUCK MOM
  • YOUR FIRST KISS WITH KUROO TETSUROU WAS IS CUTE JUST IMAGINE IT THOUGH AAAA
  • his lips are so soft?? and even though you wanted the kiss to last longer, kuroo had to pull away to go change from being sweaty. and like, you’re standing there stunned.
  • btw, bokuto’s hollering, akaashi’s smiling but also trying to keep bo quiet, and one of the other members, daishou is scowling?? like the fuck is his problem? whatever though, it ain’t yours so it doesn’t matter.
  • after he’s changed, you wait for him out in the main entrance and you see your team’s jerseys and your eyes are just searching for kuroo, but ofc you easily recognize him because of the messy hair. it’s not that hard to miss.
  • so then, there you are. in front of like at average 180cm+ people that you have never met. so then kuroo realizes this, so he’s like ‘oh um, this right here is ushijima wakatoshi. you’ve met bo. this is akaashi.’ and he goes on but like skips one member for the very end.
  • he gestures to daishou, ‘and this is jackass’
  • BUT ANYWAY, you meet the team and oh gosh your face is still pretty much flushed from the kiss and only does it hit you that everYONE WHO ATTENDED MOST LIKELY SAW THAT??
  • so while walking out and going to dinner with the team, kuroo looks at you with that playful smirk and arm around your shoulders
  • ‘red looks great on you’ ‘shUT UP OR ELSE I’LL PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE SO YOU’LL SEE RED’
  • okay enough about you both being cute in public, now for you both being cute in private.
  • movie nights every single saturday.
  • actually when kuroo first purposed this, he was like ‘wanna watch a shitty movie with me later?’ ‘sure’
  • now it’s a tradition.
  • there’s also a lot of popcorn throwing, scary movie or not.
  • and some saturdays you’re too lazy to move so then you sleep over at kuroo’s and bo’s. bo doesn’t mind, btw. he’s very chill about you (meaning he’s excited over you). he did bring you two together.
  • bo loves you, almost like a sister, but he will draw on both of your faces. which then ensues you and kuroo just chasing bo around the dorm with markers.
  • there will be a lot of third-wheeling with bo and you want to spend time with kuroo but you don’t want to hurt bo’s feelings.
  • ‘i don’t know if this is going to work’ ‘what do you mean’ ‘i can’t snuggle with kuroo if you’re gonna lay on top of us’ ‘*sniffle* okay okAY finE, I GET WHERE THIS IS GOING’ ‘bo wait don’t go into the corner’
  • there’s a lot of dorm adventures as well.
  • and oh god, other times when you’re at his dorm, he’s like ‘can you go get the bag of chips in kitchen cabinet?’ and you’re there like ???? wow, such athlete, much healthy. but he then suggests after you both finish the bag to go for a run.
  • and honestly, even though you’re supportive of his “healthy” lifestyle, he has to drag you out the door. but you end up running anyway because guess who drops you halfway out the door, so you run after his dead ass.
  • you end up running through the entire campus and college town until at some point you both coincidentally find yourselves in front of the building you both first met in. by that i mean, you stepped on the back of kuroo’s shoe it came off.
  • as you stare it the building, kuroo’s staring at you with his shoe in his hand. of course, you notice it because you feel it?? you know what i mean?? you can feel when someone’s staring at you.
  • so you look at him in the eyes and he gives you the most sincere and genuine smile?? it’s so touching to see and it’s not often that people see this side to him. they always see the provocative and dorky kuroo.
  • so you break the silence, “what?”
  • he points to the inside of his shoe, “you’re my SOLE mate” and he starts running again (but with one shoe) and then you finally understand, “THAT’S IT, I’M PUTTING MY FOOT DOWN”
  • which leads me to telling you both tell puns. you’re pun masters.
  • like ever since that match kissing dealio that went down many weeks ago, the entire college views you as the cute volleyball couple that “”””jog”””” around campus, but like the team and friends know you’re both huge dorks who just tell way too many puns with each other.
  • you’re both on a coffee date at this cute little cafe kuroo’s really close friend, kenma, works at, so kuroo starts ordering first like,, hmm,,, and takes so much time before he actually chooses something and you’re there like ‘better latte than never’ ‘wow,, you’re really the one for me. where have you bean all my life?’ and that starts a constant back and forth.
  • and kenma’s there like,,, god fucking dammit, there’s two of them now. and he just wants to walk away but he knows that he won’t hear the end of it from his boss if he leaves a table without an order so he has to endure it until you order.
  • you also write him little motivational puns on post-it notes that you stick in his notebook, like you draw an postage stamp and envelope saying ‘i’ll always stick with you’
  • he keeps all the post it notes. all of them.
  • kuroo seriously loves you so much and you make any biochem class really fun as much as he hates the classes. he wouldn’t say this because it’s too sappy, even for him, but in his mind he calls you the light of his life.
  • but to sum up, you and kuroo are the “”healthy”” college couple that make too puns for anyone to handle other than yourselves.

I’m so glad you made time to see me.
How’s life? Tell me how’s your family?
I haven’t seen them in a while.
You’ve been good, busier than ever,
We small talk, work and the weather,
Your guard is up and I know why.
Because the last time you saw me
Is still burned in the back of your mind.
You gave me roses and I left them there to die.

You left Alex over a year ago. Your heart was shattered over the death of your brother, and Alex wasn’t going to make it better. You’ve known him for a while, almost all of your life actually. You really KNEW him. When you started dating, people said it was going to happen eventually, they just waited for the right time. The moment you stepped into Seattle Grace Mercy West, you had a few thoughts on your mind, but they were little. You were an attending now, seeing as you left when you were a 5th Year Resident. Alex was in his 4th Year right now. You were 2 years above him. Seeing Dr. Webber and Dr. Hunt gave you some sort of relief, because they would make you very busy, so would Dr. Shepperd, seeing as you learned under him for quite a while. You entered the attending’s lounge and saw Dr. Bailey with her morning coffee. It was your first day at work. She looked up at you in surprise.

“(L/n)!”

She got up and hugged you a bit, then let you go.

“I thought you were in San Francisco,” She gave you a worried look.

“I came back. I missed Seattle’s weather. San Francisco was nice, but here is nicer. How are you? How is everyone,” You asked.

“Everyone’s doing just fine. From What I heard, one of the best Neurosurgeons in the world is now attending our hospital with Derek Shepherd. You’re boosting our morale.”

“Please, I’m merely a new employee. Let’s just say that. I’ll see you, I have to get changed and go meet Dr. Shepherd on a case he received.”

pretty-grotesque  asked:

Hello, I have 2 cats who have to live in a relatively small area (2 rooms and a hallway) they seem bored often and I was wondering if you have any enrichment ideas for them? One likes those jingly ball things and likes to play fetch and the other like things that move, I've given them some jingly mice and a scratch board and a paper bag w/catnip but I wanna give them more than just the typical cat toy. BTW your blog is awesome.

The cat tag might help you out, it’s mostly cat trees and outdoor catios, but there’s some other enrichment stuff sprinkled in to give you ideas. 

Other ideas; anything cardboard box related, cat’s love boxes. Try arranging them in different patterns and create new spaces to hide and explore through with them (box mazes are fun, especially when there’s treats hidden inside!). If possible, add levels to the rooms and/or hallway; shelves that they are allowed on and that will support their weight safely at different heights. Food puzzles are always good and can help keep your kitties interested and busy, while still working their brains. You could even work with them on basic cues; sit, roll over, etc. Some cats take to training very well! Try different smells; herbs, spices, maybe a couple leaves from outside. My cats took a particular interest in fresh mint leaves. Novelty items; anything your cats haven’t come into contact with regularly, such as a potted plant (safe to taste if you plan to leave them unattended around it) or a few pebbles from your garden. Even something as simple as rearranging the furniture in the rooms can give your kitties something to poke around. If there’s a window in one of the spaces they have access to, hanging a bird feeder outside can provide hours of entertainment for them. If not or in addition to, try different recordings, which could be anything from bird calls, to frogs or other animals/insects, to different kinds of music or bells, etc. Harness and leash training them can open up your possibilities for safe exploration even further.

Enrichment can and should be fun for your animals and you. Get creative with it :)
