stray kittens

2

Tiny dirty stray kitten hanging out at the bottom of our stairs since yesterday. There are a lot of self-reliant ferals around our apartment, but this little thing was dirty & covered in burrs. We gave it some chicken but couldn’t catch it. I think it may have wandered over from the outdoor cat hoarder colony down the street; that house is awful & we saw kittens there last week.

This morning the downstairs neighbor managed to grab it for us, and I put it on this cozy towel & started combing and picking the burrs & sticks out of its fur. It calmed down immediately and has been chilling here with me in the kitchen ever since. Got a vet appointment in an hour to get my little buddy cleaned up & checked out. I hope it isn’t too sick; I think it might have a cold.

If we can, we are probably going to keep her.

A ‘Captive Prince x A Song of Ice and Fire’ AU

He is skilled, he is hot-blooded, he collects his bastards like stray kittens - and he is the Prince of Dorne. But even somebody like Damianos Martell can manage to step into a nest of vipers. He did exactly that when he accidentally crippled the eldest Tyrell son, Auguste, in a tournament, pissing off the whole lot of Highgarden. Auguste Tyrell is not only their heir, but one of the last Blackfyres through his maternal line. And some people want to believe it wasn’t an accident at all…

Despite the rumours and his family bearing a deep grudge against the Martells, Auguste and Damianos quickly became friends after the accident. Even his little brother, Laurent, eventually warmed up after endless months of vicious stares. Tyrell’s little rose turns out to be brilliantly witty, more thorns than petals. Yet, he blushes prettily whenever Auguste teases him with an embarrassing childhood story, in which Laurent thought for the longest time (because of the old Targaryen/Blackfyre traditions) he is to marry his own brother as a grown up, telling every adult complimenting him that he is already promised. The Dornish prince cannot help but to grow fond of the brothers.

Years later, Damianos emerges victoriously in another tournament and is to crown his Queen of Love and Beauty. There’s a flood of shocked gasps going through the crowd when he places the winter roses on Laurent Tyrell’s head, the flowers as blue as his eyes. “Why,” Damianos proclaimes, “it’s all the grace and courtesy he deserves.”

Since then, Damianos has had quite the reputation for letting tournaments turn out scandalously!

EDIT: The lovely @steelestingray wrote a fanfic based on this AU~

Cont. here!
really sketched and unpolished comic I did while sick this morning about older Yuri and Otabek finding and adopting a stray kitten :3

 Please note that I only ship them as adults, in my mind they’d rather develop a healthy friendship over the years before getting into a romantic relationship, as I stated in my previous sketches

For the anon that was wondering about exploring Pet Play alone. There are several things you can do involving Pet Play that doesn’t require having a master! Here are some ideas for you!

- Wear a collar if you have one! (I love the ones with bells on them!)

- Wear a ear and tail set if you have one!

- Take a nap (I’m a kitten and I love taking naps in patches of sunlight or just napping in general!)

- Eat foods that remind you of what pet space you’re in! (Beef jerky, sushi, fish, steak, ect.)

- Make a bed out of pillows and blankets on the floor to nap and play in!

- Play with some toys! (String, stuffed animals, tennis balls, ect.)

- Groom yourself! Take a nice long relaxing bath or brush your hair!


These are just a few ideas! I hope this helped!

We got the kittens into the vet! Unfortunately we only had two vouchers left so one will have to wait a bit longer.

They are guessed to be six months old, which means they’re beyond their critical period (see TNR megapost). Two male, and one unknown but guessed to be male. The heart-nose and black & white have been fixed, while the tabby waits, and all are doing fine.

mamabearako  asked:

Hey, quick question. Can cats view human babies as their kittens? Because apparently our old cat used to jump into the crib with me as a baby.

From what I understand, cats have enough empathy/brains to understand that a baby is a Human Baby and not a Kitten.  Cats are also communal creatures that will readily adopt stray kittens or care for each other’s kittens, and since the ‘owners’ are the cat’s best friends, it’s inclined to take care of the human’s awkward baby. So they do maternal cat things to the baby like grooming and cuddling becuase that’s their best guess of how to help take care of it.

So your cat didn’t view you as a kitten, exactly, but they knew you were a baby and tried to take care of you the best they knew how.

Hey @sixpenceee I though you might find this interesting… A few years ago my husband brought home a stray kitten with only half a tale, he thought her grandfather had been a bobtale cat but others said she must’ve gotten it chopped off somehow because of the way her tale crooks at the end (that’s her in the last pic). Recently she had kittens of her own and she does have bobtale genes! She had 6 kittens altogether: 2 with full, long tales; 2 with half-tales; and 2 with no tales

had an idea that adrien finds a stray kitten on the way home from patrol one night and brings it home to keep it out of the winter cold and maybe give it a place to rest for the evening, since it’s obviously without a mother or any sort of protection/way to feed itself

  • he tells himself he wont keep it; that he’ll bring it to the vet in the morning and have it checked out, then bring it to the animal shelter so it can be adopted
  • but overnight the kitten falls asleep on adrien’s chest, and it purrs and stretches out its tiny paws, and oh no, it’s too cute, too cute, abort, ABORT
  • so he tells himself he’ll bring it to his and ladybug’s next patrol to let her say hello, since she once mentioned something about loving cats, and only after that he’ll do something about it
  • but when this little angel clings onto his shoulder and seems to enjoy the ride across the rooftops, and is so darn sweet to ladybug (who smiles very big in return), adrien knows he can’t just get rid of this precious creature just like that!
  • one week, he tells himself. one week with this kitten and then he’ll find her a home
  • one week turns into three, and three turn into eight, and suddenly adrien’s got a cat of his own that he brings to every patrol and lets sleep on his chest every night while simultaneously doing his best to hide her from his father who probably already knows because let’s face it you dont just see a €500 cat condo in your son’s amazon order history and think nothing of it…but hey he’s just glad his kid found something to keep him happy
  • so adrien has a cat. a cat who he invites all of his friends over to see, including marinette, who can almost swear she’s seen that kitten before, on someone else’s shoulders…but hey, it’s just a coincidence, right? lots of cats have similar markings!
  • (bonus points if adrien names the kitten Buginette/Bugaboo)

Peggy Carter in Every Episode → SNAFU (1x07)
“You think you know me, but I’ve never been more than what each of you has created. To you, I’m the stray kitten, left on your doorstep to be protected. The secretary turned damsel in distress. The girl on the pedestal, transformed into some daft whore. You’re behaving like children. What’s worse What’s far worse Is that this is just shoddy police work. You were inches away from the woman that you want when you loaded me into your car.”
