I’ve seen SO many stories from people who were screwed over by Paypal…here, HAVE ANOTHER ONE.

I sold a necklace to someone for $30.99. To me, that’s quite a lot, especially when it means contributing towards rent and food, since my shop is my only job, and I want to keep it that way. I may be…

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.

FUCKING IMPORTANT

The STORY THOUGH.

The comic broke my heart. When I have my own place I am definitely getting a less-adoptable cat. And a street cat that follows me home. And maybe a street dog, if it follows me too.
CMy actual cat is already from the street and I love him so, so, so, so much!!

The best way to get kids to read a book is to say: ‘This book is not appropriate for your age, and it has all sorts of horrible things in it like sex and death and some really big and complicated ideas, and you’re better off not touching it until you’re all grown up. I’m going to put it on this shelf and leave the room for a while. Don’t open it.

~SO I GUESS THIS IS THEIR NEXT PLAN? PLEASE READ THIS HANDY GUIDE OF HOW TO AVOID UNWANTED PANIC AND STRESS~

-Don’t go on tags. Seriously just don’t. Actually just secure your account and just stay off Tumblr. Go outside, pet a cat, read a book. Just avoid Tumblr.

-Don’t click any links. If you really want to make that brownie in a mug or whatever, LOOK IT UP YOURSELF. This way you know you won’t be opening any screamers or anything. Just go to google and search “cute bunnies” or whatever you need to do, just don’t open a link on Tumblr.

-Don’t talk about the raid. No angry rants or mocking or reactions to what happens. Talk to someone privately if you need to, remember they’re doing this for a reaction.

-And lastly, be careful. Just take some deep breaths and even though it’s hard to just ignore it, sometimes the best option is just to shut down your computer or even just delete your blog. Take a step away from things. Walk outside, talk on the phone with friends, talk to you pets, draw, do what makes you happy! I know this seems like a HUGE deal right now, but it’ll blow over eventually. Beside, sometimes it’s hard to see how much something consumes you until you step back for a while.
BE VERY SAFE EVERYONE, OKAY?

Chicxs, a la gente de 4chan se les ha ocurrido que sería divertido sustituir los links a los teléfonos de ayuda y atención al suicidio en los post de tumblr con links que llevan a fotos o vídeos de gente suicidándose (Ya hay que ser desalmado para que se te ocurra una idea así). Os traduzco los consejos para lidiar con una situación así si de repente os ocurre, estando en tumblr.

~ Así que supongo que este es su próximo plan? POR FAVOR LEA ESTE MANUAL PRÁCTICO DE CÓMO EVITAR EL PÁNICO NO DESEADO Y EL ESTRÉS ~ 

-No te vayas a las etiquetas. En serio no lo hagas. En realidad sólo protege y asegura tu cuenta y quédate fuera de Tumblr. Sal a la calle, acaricia a un gato, lee un libro. Evita Tumblr. 

-No hagas clic en ningún enlace. Si realmente deseaa hacer un brownie en una taza o lo que sea, mismo lo búscalo tú mismx. De esta manera sabes que no abrirás cualquier screamer (videos que de repente gritan, como aquél de la niña del exorcista) ni nada. Sólo tienes que ir a Google y buscar “conejitos” o lo que quieras buscar, simplemente no abras un enlace en Tumblr. 

-No reacciones, no hables de ello en público si pasa. Habla con alguien en privado si es necesario, recuerda que están haciendo esto por una reacción. 

-Y por último, ten cuidado. Simplemente inspire profundamente y aunque es difícil ignorarlo, a veces la mejor opción es simplemente apagar el ordenador o incluso eliminar su blog. Dé un paso y distanciate de las cosas. Sal a caminar, habla por teléfono con amigxs, habla con tus mascotas*, dibuja, ¡haz lo que te hace feliz! Sé que esto parece como un reto enorme en este momento, pero se borrará con el tiempo. Al lado, a veces es difícil ver la cantidad de algo que te consume hasta que das un paso atrás por un tiempo. 

MANTENGÁMONOS TODXS SEGURXS, ¿VALE?

Me parece flipante esto
