Yo, I'm Generic. I'm mostly doodling about here, posting art and what not. I play Dangan Mafia a good bit these days. I don't have a lot to write here, but I finally got around to making this blog classy as opposed to its previous "OH GOD MY EYES" state.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at my art and such. Feel free to shoot me a question at any time. I love the feed back!
Since there’s all this nerf shit on my dash, I figured I’d upload some pictures of our school’s Humans vs Zombies, which just concluded this Sunday. There were around 350 individuals participating in the four day event, which ended with a human victory.
If you haven’t seen the There She Is!! series—you have no idea what you are missing.
I saw the very first There She Is!! when I was very, very little. Internet was still new and my brother and I watched it together when we were allowed thirty minutes of internet time each. Years later, in middle school, I rediscovered it—only to find that there were now three episodes, and the fourth was very near to releasing. It was the cutest thing ever!
Until the Fourth Step came out and shattered my heart. ((HEH…))
This series of short films is extremely inspiring and touching, and even though I haven’t watched this is Alasvaster knows how long, I find myself humming their tunes quite often. And now that I’m older, I can see a much, much deeper meaning to all this.
It’s not just a cute story about a rabbit and a cat. It’s the human condition, and what we can do to right the wrongs.
((Easter Egg: Click the cloud on the Third Step after the video loads!! Alternate opening!))
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!
As someone who regularly volunteers at an animal shelter this is so so so important!
As someone who’s mother runs an animal shelter and founded a cat rescue… this is the truest thing about cats! I would never adopt a kitten. Kittens all have roughly the same personality, and you have no idea what they’re going to be like when they get older. But older cats are less trouble and you can instantly tell what they’re going to be like!
While the two cats I keep at home with me are healthy (granted I adopted them both as adults and one does have constant sniffles and recurring UTIs), my family cat has cerebellar hypoplasia. This means he wiggles and wobbles all the time— he walks funny! When he was little, he couldn’t eat or drink easily by himself. (we actually got him in the rescue as a foster, hoping he would grow out of it. spoilers: he didn’t, he just got used to it) But he’s absolutely one of the most amazing cats I’ve ever seen—even my stepdad, who vehemently hates cats, loves him.
Of all the hundreds of cats that I’ve seen go through the rescue, some of my favorites have been the one-eyed or three-legged or constantly-sniffy ones. One-Eyed Jack was a particular teenage cat that just LOVED YOU SO MUCH—and another, Jefferson, had a leg amputated when he was a kitten due to a car accident, but he wanted nothing more than to sit in your lap. Black and tabby cats are also, in my general experience, way sweeter than most “pretty colored” cats. See: my dad’s chill stoner black cat next to his fat, obnoxious, pissy calico.
Seriously, after seeing hundreds upon hundreds of cats? And having most of those live in my house for some period of time? I would absolutely never adopt a kitten. I would always adopt an adult cat. If you ever get a cat, just try to remember some of this! And if your friends are going to get cats, do the same!
Help me earn some money so I can survive college! I barely got by last quarter, so I figured commissions would really help. ;w; I don’t have too wide of a variety to choose from, but hopefully something here will catch your interest!
I can draw (or attempt to draw): furries*, fluff and coupley things I cannot draw: mechas, nsfw, some animals* (no nsfw for now, sorry!) [*I will attempt the commission with the included animal(s)/furry/furries, but if I am unable to do so, I will let you know.]
SIDE NOTE: additional characters are $2-5 depending on the kind of commission you choose.
