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!

And here is my United/World of Love line:
My heart sank a little bit. The World/United States of Love line that I created is one of the reasons that I was able to quit my full-time job. They even stole the…
Inspiration through Music #Woyaya #Lymie #Spoonie #Lyme #Pain #Music #Faith #Hope
I’m seeing lots of posts of Lymies and Spoonies struggling. I too am in a lot of pain and am struggling with both addressing the pain and expressing it. A friend posted a status yesterday and I could tell she was getting to the end of her rope. For me,…
Cognitive Miserliness and Spoons #Lyme #Lymie #Spoonie #Pain #Cognition
Over Labor Day Weekend I attended Dragon*Con. I sat in on a panel discussion “Why Mensa Will Never Solve World Hunger”, which was about rationality in contrast to intelligence. The speaker, Barbara Drescher, spoke about cognitive miserliness: the idea…
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. I had a torturous sinus migraine for five days last week. As soon as I recovered, I had to play catch up on life. I have a hard time figuring out how to prioritize. Which comes first? School? Blogging? HOA Board…
"I Have a Dream" and Mantras #lyme #mantra #spirituality
I have a confession: I don’t have a mantra*. This is not to say that I haven’t meditated with a mantra but many spiritually inclined people have a personal mantra that is theirs. I have “tried on” many of the traditional mantras, but none felt quite…
I know it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a vlog. Between traveling and preparing for my last semester of my Master’s, I haven’t had enough spoons to get one done. I wanted to reassure you that I haven’t forgotten about you all, nor have I fallen…
