Day 1: Sterling Archer, the world’s most dangerous spy. One of the things that I would say to this tiny feral kitten, who I have been bringing cans of food daily for about a week. He’s feral so of course he growls and hisses at me. Once I snatched him up to make sure he looked healthy, to which he responded with an insanely loud screeching sound and an attempted attack. He did look healthy, so I let him go back. Every day I wondered, “Should I snatch this kitten up and take him inside?” I’ve done that once already, with a feral kitten that was sick. Who is now healthy and almost a year old, oh and the most loving cat I have ever known. But this little kitten looked healthy, I have 2 cats, and who am I to decide that living inside is better than living outside?

Tonight it decided to rain. That’s an understatement. It was pouring and thunder storming, nearby lightning hitting the ground loudly. I thought about the little kitty outside, I wondered if he was frightened, I wondered if he was wet. I stood in the window looking towards the rocks he lives under, and as the rain kept pouring I started to panic and cry.

“What if she’s not okay out there?” I asked Rennie. Rennie told me she was fine, but knew I was upset so offered to go out there if I wanted to.

“But how would we catch her if we even went out there?” I imagined him under a rock, terrified of all of these new and horrific (I assume horrific for a cat anyway) sounds crashing around him. He was already not too keen on my daily approaches.

However as it just kept pouring I couldn’t take it. I didn’t know what I could do out there, but I had to go look at those rocks. Did I mention they are by a drainage pipe? I probably should have.

When we approached the rocks I flew into a panic, what was once his home was now a thick and fast waterfall. I ran to the rocks, and who I think was his mother ran out from them and away, but he wasn’t with her. I was by the water, convinced that he had already drowned underneath it. I didn’t know what to do, I cried and looked around, I was having trouble breathing.

In the meantime, Rennie saw something on the other side of the rocks, it was him. He grabbed him and called out, “I have her, she’s okay!”   But he didn’t look okay. A feral cat, limp in somebody’s hands, Come on, when does that happen? I ran to them and I thought I needed to help Rennie hold him, but he was soaking wet, quiet, and not moving. We ran up to the apartment grabbed a cat carrier and a towel, and took him to the emergency vet. Not before Rennie got shit on, which turned out to be just what I needed to snap out of my panic attack.

It’s a boy! The people at the vet say he’s going to be okay. Great, so we can’t leave him outside, there is more heavy rain in the forecast. Boy he is pissed off and scatting and growling at us…

But I’ve done this before, and I am a Behavior Analyst (albeit one that focuses on humans…), so I can do this. Can’t I? This time I’m documenting it. Welcome to my adventure: domesticating a feral kitten (don’t try this at home, I am you know, sort of a professional, kind of, well, a student of life).

Welcome to the story of Sterling Malory, the world’s most dangerous cat.

Ha so remember how I just said I was overwhelmed and going to have a harder time keeping up with everything?

More stuff happened to make me even more busy lol! So I'm sorry my friends that I may take longer to respond to you and such for a bit.

Colorless
The world around me is so colorless, I'm below tangles and tangles of responsibilities. I think I can see the sky, past all of these confusions. But my eyes have lied before.

Sorry it's taking me so long to look at everybody's stuff and write back to comments, I am finally moving up in my company and... This picture sums that up:

So my boyfriend :iconlowfrequencyoutput: is just plain amazing. Recently he has become the guardian of the ducklings. The other day he saw a baby duckling being attacked by a turtle, and he ran out there and into the swamp and had to pick up the turtle and shake it a little (turtle is fine) to get it to let the baby duck go. Then yesterday he saw a mother duck attempting to drown a duckling. Once again he walked into the pond to retrieve the duckling, who was struggling to swim and was sinking after the psycho mom left. He picked up the little duckling and the poor guy seemed injured. So he warmed him with his body heat and we took him to our area's amazing emergency vet (they specialize in all kinds of animals). In the car the duckling started to look a lot better, and when we were almost at the vet he got up and was chirping and tried to jump out of his arms, so I think by the time we got him there he was already doing better. The people there assured me that a wildlife rehabilitator was en route for the duckling. So I am sure the duckling is doing just fine, and that the rehabilitator will take care of him until it is time to release him back into the wild. Heart Here's a picture of my hero and the duckling, crappy quality because it was taken from my phone because it wasn't exactly the time for a photo-op.

Here's some more awesome stuff, I have been being really super repetitive about what I am watching, and have now watched all of Archer that Netflix has more than 20 times (seriously can't watch anything else) and I asked Rennie to paint some of the Archer style art that is on the walls. He nailed it.

I'm not a part of any genre.

I'm annoyed with the people that "thank me for the fav" by asking me to give them more attention. If you do that, I'm going to go ahead and unfav your work not because it isn't awesome, but because I don't like you. Don't ask a person to compliment your hair after they've already complimented your eyes, it's rude!
