If you’re having a bad day, just watch this sleeping kitten.
Its tiny black nose, its little cushioned black jellybean toes, the halo of silver moonlight hairs on the silky black fur.

MY COMPUTER SCREWED UP AND THE GIF STOPPED AND I GOT WORRIED

    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

    "

    My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

    And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

This sign is in my doctors office above the scale and I really love it. It actually made me feel a lot better after reading it

Or HEALTH. They left that off.

    The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

    oh for fucks SAKE

    Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

    http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

    He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

    and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

    Exactly! This is evil.

    Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

    Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

    This dude was cosplaying.

    He was dressed up in a costume.

    Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

    Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

    Jesus Christ, American law enforcement. Get your fucking shit together.

    "Of course, the ultimate moment of being Female in Public comes when a woman, deep in thought, is told by a strange man to SMILE. (And this happens only to women.) Gentlemen, let’s get this straight. There is no part of my body that belongs to you, not even my facial expression."
    From a devastating essay from Laura Lippman, author, about what it’s like to be a woman in public.  (via emilyvgordon)

    I’m gonna start an all girl punk band that sings really offensive songs like, “I don’t know how to tell you you’re bad at oral.”

    Our second song is going to be called “My eyelashes are longer than your dick.”

    id listen to you guys.

    Another song could be “Christ will come before I do.”

    Oh my god

    I’m already a fan. I want merch.

    Actually, those kind of remind me of Garfunkle & Oates.

    Tonight I start doing this to the yard. Last year it took 8 hours, I have some extra stuff to do this year which won’t show up in this shot when I do one for 2014. I am guessing it’ll take closer to 10 hours to finish this year so it’ll take a few nights.
