here. take some oak pictures. he’s almost 7 months old now!!
we officially adopted them!
we had to put e collars on the kittens (due to their spay and neuter), and they're still getting used to it. still ramming into things. still trying to get them off.

another old photo of oak and juniper! i plan to post more recent ones once i catch up. they love my beat-up office chair.
it's! Toby! the! Cat!
did i upload these already?
Here's a quick pic of Toby that I got today!! He had to get a tooth removed recently, and he's still recovering.
Daffodil, Lilac, Petunia!
Daddodil: What instrument(s) do you play?
I was taking ukulele lessons recently but decided to take a break due to lack of motivation and school starting up. I haven't gotten very good, though. I've also done guitar lessons for a little, and several people have tried to teach my piano, but I never made it it very far on those. However, I would love to learn how to play multiple instruments!! I just don't have the dicipline or dedication (unlike my brother, who quickly got good at the bass when he set his mind to it).
Lilac: When are you most active?
The morning is when I feel most active in some ways. Thanks to my meds, I'm energetic and positive then--ready to tackle a bunch of things--but that quickly fades away late morning/noon. I used to be a night owl, having the highest mood, energy, and activity at night, but that's definitely changed. After the morning passes, unless someone stops me, I spend much of my time lying on the carpet.
Petunia: Do you have any pets? Tell me about them!
I do!!! I'm currently living with two cats. It was three very recently, but one of them passed away due to blood clots and heart disease. I'm still recovering from that. Anyway, before I start crying, back to the living cats:
Racer, who is now 14 (and has severe heart problems as well), is Rocket's (the cat who passed away) brother. He's very attention hungry, which I think got worse when his brother passed, and he really likes biting toes. He'll try to spend as much time with me as possible, and I find it sad that I'm busy and out of the house most days. He's been picky about food ever since he got sick, and he often won't eat unless someone hand feeds him. (At one hospital trip, they called him a "social eater.) He's very loud and will claw or bite me if I stop petting him. Also, Racer is swirly grey, white, black, and brown. He's the dominant cat in the house.
Toby is a little younger than Racer and was once a stray. Now he's a food-obsessed lapcat who never gets full. He's constantly on the run and kind of acts like he hallucinates sometimes. Toby loves human food and will go through desperate measures to steal it. He can also get cranky sometimes, biting you when you attempt to pet him, and he hates it when people touch it tummy. He also has a really raspy meow, and it took him a long time to even learn how to meow that well. Toby's purr is also like quiet hard breathing, so it's hard to tell if he's purring sometimes. Oh, and he's orange.
some pictures for (*double checks the date*) Caturday!!
Toby the Cat.

a post about rocket's passing
going through rocket's youngboy pictures to find a good one for his new urn and found this treasure. it's all the way back from 2006, so he was about a year old.
when you try to take a decent picture of your cat, but this happens..
we took rocket to the hospital today. details about animal sickness below.
i don’t know how to take this. i finally stopped crying, and i’m on the verge of crying again.
this is all so hard.
i just want him to come back and feel okay.
look at this boy.nap
this boy isn't doing ok right now. please give positive thoughts/prayers/whatever you can. thank you.
rocket isn't doing well
animal death and illness mentions below.
on the bright and hopeful side, the vet gave us some medication to try out for his probable nausea and arthritis (which would explain the on-and-off limping he's been doing). please, please, please work.
look at this boy.
dinner time for the boys!
