The Kraken Queen
Me, I worked for Blizzard doing illustrations for several tabletop RPGs, worked on 175 spot illustrations for Spellbinder Games, have done film storyboards, and am working on my first graphic novel.

    Thank you for your good thoughts, guys <3

    Though eating and drinking a bit more this morning, I think I have figured out part of the issue, the vet visit at 2pm will obviously be more definitive. My guess, due to her age (17 years old, scottish fold) and previous habits, severe constipation…

    Update 2.

    After being poked, prodded, x-rayed, and quite vocally expressing her hatred for every living being…

    Nothing. They found. Nothing.

    Blood panel showed that she is in tip top shape.
    X-rays showed no signs of blockage or growths.
    X-rays showed healthy organs.
    Temperature was fine.
    Her heart sounds great.
    Her lungs sound great.

    Overall the vet says that for a 17 year old she’s a really solid cat.

    :|
    GUYS. WHAT.
    Why does my cat do this to me!?

    Anyway, just in case she’s a bit constipated, which the vet pointed out on x-rays as not too big of a problem, we were given a very minor laxative to administer 2-3 times a day.

    In related news, we will be getting an appointment made for Genesis to get laser light therapy to help with her arthritis.

  • Genesis Update:

    Thank you for your good thoughts, guys <3

    Though eating and drinking a bit more this morning, I think I have figured out part of the issue, the vet visit at 2pm will obviously be more definitive. My guess, due to her age (17 years old, scottish fold) and previous habits, severe constipation caused by dehydration, there’s also the possibility of a blockage in her large intestine due to the small, pencil thin feces. I’m hoping it’s as simple as dehydration so they can give her an enema and fluids. So desperately hoping that’s it. But the pencil thin feces have me really concerned, mainly because she has a few lumps growing on her abdomen that we had the vets check out a few months ago- at the time they were only fluid filled cysts and they said to keep an eye on them.

    Let’s keep our fingers crossed it’s just dehydration and nothing else.

    • It would be touching if everyone could send good vibes, thoughts, prayers, to Genesis, she's not feeling well and will likely be going to the vet tomorrow or Saturday. Something isn't right. She's been sitting for most of the day, not loafing, but sitting and just staring off. I got her to eat a couple times and added water to her wet food just in case she's dehydrated, got her to drink once (she may have drank at other times ). Right now she's laying down, but the long periods (20- 30+ minutes) of her just sitting with her front half stretched forward, staring, is extremely concerning and her purring is a discomfort purr. ;_;

  • blazegryph asked : Whoah whoah I had no idea there's bad vibes around the Pern books, I didn't read them but I knew they were around (I was engrossed in Redwall always). What's up with the author, if you don't mind me asking? /nosey

    I’m xposting from my FB:

    "Basic gist, back in college I was working on my comic ideas and created a genetic engineering company called RedStar, and since it involved my taschevah, someone suggested I talk to AMc even though there were
    no similarities. To make a story short, she threatened me with a lawsuit over the use of RedStar.

    I’m pretty sure at a later date her son, Todd, apologized to me? May have been her daughter but that part is fuzzy. That was way back in 2003, I believe.

    Not to mention poor Dee Dreslough, who was also given a serious lawsuit backhand from her.

    It was damn ridiculous.”

    miniature-madness:

    please get off that mini. the AMHA says that minis should not be ridden by anyone over 70 lbs and I will sometimes agree with that depending on the mini. “A” division minis should not be ridden by anyone over 40 lbs, while the 70 lb rule usually works for “B” division minis. minis should also not be ridden by anyone who’s feet hang below their belly, or by anyone who’s legs are are longer than the mini’s. a little bit is ok if the rider is under the weight limit, but this is absolutely not ok. 

    personally I would not put anyone on a miniature horse, except perhaps a small child. most minis are not built to be riding horses. they are not as hardy as shetland ponies. this fine boned mini type in particular should not be ridden except by a very small child, her legs look like they could snap beneath you. 

    a good example of a mini being ridden appropriately is thecityhorse's Gadget. Gadget is 39” and a very hardy type of mini with nice bone and a great build.

    as you can see these children’s legs are well above Gadget’s belly, and he has no problem carrying their weight. photo cred. to thecityhorse and mazthespaz

    the bottom line is if you wouldn’t ride a great dane or a st. bernard you shouldn’t be riding a mini like that. please never get on that horse again.

    OMG THANK YOU.

  • thefrecklebum asked : Welcome to the fish "community" of tumblr (and all the stubborn know-it-alls), Hannah. Isn't it GRAND?

    It seriously makes me feel like burning a house down… in the safest most non-life threatening way possible.

    I’m remembering why I “left” the fish community years ago.
