hey y’all! my last mater post here was such a big hit, I decided to do a part 2! once again, it has taken me ages to put together, so please reblog it <3 love KT
how to be healthy:
feeling sad/need to relax/calm down?
need help with school?
This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.
A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!
Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.
All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.
Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!
Let me tell to you a thing.
This is Lenore. I first saw her in a little cage at the Petco I frequent (I used to take my parents’ dog in for puppy play time), and she looked like the grouchiest, old, crotchety cat in the world, and I fell instantly in love. She was cranky, she was anti-social, hanging out at the back of her cage. Her fur was matted because she wouldn’t let the groomers near her.
She was perfect.
But I didn’t have a place for her. I wasn’t living in my own space yet, and where I was, I wasn’t allowed cats. So I pressed my face to the bars of her cage and I promised that if no one had adopted her by the time I’d bought a house, I would come back for her.
I visited her every week for over six months while I looked for a house. At one point, they had to just shave her entire rear-end because the mats or fur were so bad. They told me she clawed the heck outta the groomer that did it, screamed the entire time, and spent the next two days growling at anyone that came near the cage.
A couple of weeks later, I closed on my house. I went back and I got an employee, and I said: “That one. I need that cat.”
They got the paperwork and the lady who ran the rescue that was bringing the cats in told me that Lenore (at the time, Lila) was 8 years old, had been owned by an elderly lady who had died, and brought in to a different rescue, who’d had her for six months on top of the time I’d been seeing her at Petco.
This kitty had been living in a 3x3’ cube for over a YEAR because she was older and “less adoptable.”
I signed the paperwork, put her in a cat carrier, and drove her to my new home. I had pretty much nothing; a bed, an old couch, a couple of bookcases, and a tank of mice I called “Cat TV”. I let her out of the carrier and onto my bed, and I told her “I told you I would come back for you when I had a place. It’s not much, but it’s yours too now.”
Lenore spent the next three days straight purring non-stop. She followed me around the house purring. Sat next to me purring. Slept next to me purring. Leaning into every touch, purring, purring, always purring. She still purrs if you so much as think about petting her. She’s amazing, and I love her.
So, you know, if you’re thinking about adopting, and you see a beast that others consider “less adoptable,” think about Lenore.
you know that moment when u pass by ur crush in the hallway and ur eyes meet
i did a quick doodle our group cuz i’m a nerd who has no social obligations (also you guys are amaze) i didn’t draw everyone because i’m a loser who doesn’t finish what she starts, but i hope y’all like it anyway!
i told my mom that god has killed babies in the bible and she didn’t believe me so i searched it up and to my surprise

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
in conclusion god is an asshole
okay well I mean ten murders is still bad though so
god gambles with your souls pass it on
hey can you not?? like just because you don’t think christianity is a valid religion doesn’t mean that millions of people around the world don’t draw comfort and joy from it so stop shitting all over it
harry and hermione’s relationship is so important because it shows that two characters can love each other deeply but not in a romantic way and there are not enough boy/girl unconditional, innocent friendships like that in books and that is why i am refusing to accept that J.K. wanted them together
As much as thats true, don’t forget they almost dated
as much as that’s true it’s not
I’ve been seeing a post going around lately that’s complaining about the spelling of the name “Sean,” and I’d like to explain a thing.
The name Sean is Irish Gaelic, and Irish Gaelic has a lot of insane spelling rules. For example, there are broad vowels (a, o, u) and slender vowels (i, e). Different consonants have different rules for their pronunciation depending on their position in the word, as well as if they’re next to a broad or slender vowel.
With the letter “s,” when it’s next to a slender vowel (i or e), it makes the sound “sh” instead of just “s.” Therefore, in the name Sean, since the “s” is followed by a slender vowel (e), it’s pronounced “sh.”
In Irish, there are also long vowels (á, é, í, ó, and ú) and short vowels (a, e, i, o, u). Long vowels are pronounced, well, long and instead of pronounced ah, eh, ih, oh, and uh, they’re pronounced aw, ay, ee, ow, and oo.
There are also different groups of vowels that are pronounced certain ways, which sound like long vowels, but without the need for the accent. In the name Sean, the combination of “e” and “a,” create the sound normally made by “á” (aw). So, when you put all this together, you can see why Sean would be pronounced “Shawn.”
Hope this helped!
ok but does anyone else ever justme 2 U
These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.
I wonder how many people actually realise that all of Scotland is on edge atm waiting to find out if we will in fact become an independent country or not.
Whichever way the vote goes, we have undoubtedly made history today.
