People should tag their hannibal spoilers
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!
I don’t believe in getting kittens. Kittens are the fucking devil. The cuteness doesn’t last long and suddenly you get some surly sob that wants NOTHING to do with you. I’d rather (always) get an adult cat that is already spayed/neutered and chose me instead of picking out cute.
Besides, kittens destroy shit. I don’t see the appeal.
My sister adopted a full grown cat. His name is Tiny. He’s not Tiny. He’s a big old fluff ball with a lot of personality, style, and is just so chill about everything. He would seriously be at home in a Jazz club.
So get yourself a adult cat, they’re awesome.
I understand the sentiment but kittens too need homes! So by all means, adopt a kitten if that’s what you really want but remember that it will grow up into a cat one day and you need to adapt to its changing needs. And neuter your kitten as soon as its old enough to avoid more unwanted kittens - this is even a requirement at our local shelter, you need to bring your kitten back for the shelter vet to neuter or you will not be allowed to adopt.
TL;DR all cats are awesome!
Super incredibly maddening thing about mental illness:
Fighting your ass off to live a normal life and function as well as you can, and instead of getting credit and having people be proud of you for all the efforts you’re making, having people use your apparently normal behavior as a reason to invalidate you and think you weren’t that sick to begin with.
It takes a lot of badassery to act this normal, but the effort is all invisible
