I love to see children who are so delicate and gentle with animals. It warms my heart amidst a sea of brats pulling cats’ tails and getting whacked.
Also JESUS THAT’S A SNUGGLY CHICKEN.
I love how she reaches up on her tippy toes to snuggle into his shoulder.
I’m doing a persuasive speech and this would really help me out.
If you think animals should be adopted from shelters, reblog.
If you think animals should be bought from pet stores, like.
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!
Cats adapt to physical and neurological disabilities, just like people do! Just because a cat is missing a limb or may walk funny, doesn’t mean they aren’t just as capable to give you the love and affection you want from a pet. I’ve even seen blind cats who, while needing some extra accommodations while adjusting to a new home and lifestyle, have gone on to live happy, healthy, fun lives with owners and sibling pets who absolutely adore them. :-)
There was a cat that I would have adopted should I not be moving so soon who was partially blind, I asked if there was anything special I needed to do to care for her and they said just have a jingling anklet when I was home so she could find me easier and have different texture rugs in front of things like doors and her litter. It’s really not hard to care for a special needs kitty!
Most marine mammals are very flexible because they are made of 99% blorp.
what the fuck is the last 1%
