"I make a lot of poor financial decisions. None of them matter, in the long term. I will never not be poor, so what does it matter if I don’t pay a thing and a half this week instead of just one thing? It’s not like the sacrifice will result in improved circumstances; the thing holding me back isn’t that I blow five bucks at Wendy’s. It’s that now that I have proven that I am a Poor Person that is all that I am or ever will be. It is not worth it to me to live a bleak life devoid of small pleasures so that one day I can make a single large purchase. I will never have large pleasures to hold on to."

poor babies :(
Yeah there was this extremely brief moment when I contemplated walking away— and the voice in my head went “No" and I caught them, wrapped them in my jacket, cradled them in my arms and walked the 20 minutes back to work so I could find them a box and phone the kitty people.

So… long story short, I found some kittens.
To be a bit more precise, I found some very sick kittens on the trail near my work during my lunch hour, and like a SUCKER (ie: person who can’t resist a sick animal I am sorry) I caught the ones I could, took them back to my work, and called animal control. I also let a charity that specifically rescues cats and kittens know— apparently the area is bad for feral cats.
I caught two of the three that I saw. The animal control officer found a fourth, and said she’d try to find a way to get to the third who was behind some barriers and mewling like crazy.
It’s a high kill shelter, though, so hopefully the cat charity will be able to take any adult cats (the lady from the charity was p sure that the kittens— should they recover— were far more likely to be adopted out, since A) they’re beautiful, or will be/would be; and B) they are young enough to be socialised to humans.)
Pictures under the cut. Nothing gory, but they’re pretty sick.

*hugs hugs hugs hugs hugs* I miss you, and hope you’re feeling better soon. <33333
Thank you so much! I’m so sorry I’ve been so absent but my anxiety has blown up (with good reason, but I probably shouldn’t discuss it in a public forum).
Evidence: I usually get up at 5:30am. Today and yesterday I woke up in a cold sweat at 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep. (Of course I am also sick but at this point it’s a chicken and egg debate for me.)

I’m going through a really rough patch and with the combination of social anxiety, regular anxiety, laziness, stress at work and now a cold, I’m not capable of much right now.
I’m so sorry for the long silence and social inactivity. I miss you all. I miss myself at the moment.

So I had this really pretty Skydancer female with a smoke tertiary that wouldn’t sell (which is weird but totally my fault since I didn’t really do any more than put her on the AH) and today I decided that I think I will keep her and pair her with this first gen that I have. I really like their colour ranges— of course there are some really weird results when I preview them but there are some stunning ones. So we’ll see.
But there’s another thing! She needs a name! Suggestions are welcome!
