Due to all the aforementioned tactical errors on my cat’s part, there’s no comic at Prophecy of the Circle this week. I did manage to doodle some filler art, though. Aleksi: he’s a derp, and I love him.

Some kitty TMI under the cut.

Sorry for all the cat-tastic content.

Debating on whether or not a comic can happen while I’m looking after Aleksi McPufferpants Dunderhead III. Might not be able? I’ll try, but might not be.

It’s good to have this guy home again.

I’m glad I got to hear that Aleksi was going to be okay. Still no idea what he swallowed. The vets said it was something plastic and odd and it was very, very stuck when they found it, but they’re leaving it up to me to provide its name, whatever it is. Hopefully he’ll have started eating again by tomorrow morning and I can take him home, cone of shame and all (if he can keep it on, which he’d better; I was told he’s spunky and ripped it off twice). Worst case scenario is they keep him for one more night.

I’m glad I had that peace of mind. Still went to see Night Vale live tonight and it was wonderful. Full of great laughs and, my god, Cecil is so much more animated behind the mic than I thought he’d be. It just made his performance ten times more engaging. Wonderful audience participation between some great people both on the stage and watching the show. It was super fun. <3

…Librarians! *shudder*

But… yes. That was a serious roller coaster of emotions today. Seriously draining. Started off crying, went from anxiety to hope and back again repeatedly, paced a lot, breathed a big sigh of relief, ended off laughing, and now I’m just…. really tired. 

I hope I can pick up my little buddy tomorrow. I miss him. 

And then I have to start picking up pieces and trying to put them in order again.

Cosmic hammers from the sky. May they be finished raining down, please.

At least I know good people, personally and beyond.

Cats. Oh God Cats.

Sometimes it seems like the universe is trying to squish me and everyone I love with a great big cosmic hammer, I swear. Various bumps and troubles over the last bit, and then today, after a really unusual bout of him throwing up everywhere, my cat Aleksi’s in for emergency surgery. When I find out what he ate that got stuck deep in the dark recesses of his innards, I’m…. probably just gonna smooch his head and affectionately call him an idiot.

*waits eagerly by the phone to hear how surgery goes*

ETA: And lo, he got through surgery and is going to be okay! An expensive kind of okay, but that’s all right, he’s cute and worth it. Oh my god cats. 

Going to my parents’ place for a few days due to it being my birthday, and also just… dealing with some unhappy times. I won’t have my art tablet with me out there, so I can’t work on the colour scheme meme until I get back. I’ve been getting the requests, though, and I’ll get to them when I can. Thanks, guys.
