@lilithsaintcrow Which one did you get? There are so many on Etsy!
@hafnia As I see it, “pet” is a family role distinct from “child”. We’re responsible for them, but we also don’t expect them to grow up into adults. “Caretaker” doesn’t necessarily reflect the love we have for them, “owner” implies too much control. We don’t have good language for describing this yet.
@lilithsaintcrow And if a cat is going to get sick, they will do so just after the regular vet’s hours end for the week and only the emergency vet is available.
Archie is trying to supervise me as I work from home, but I am SO BORING. #mastocats
@PeteBleackley Abolish armed militias, certainly. Keep emergency responders for actual emergencies (cross-train them for fire and paramedic work, like in Sunnyvale, CA). And have systems nothing like police that get people counseling when they need it, and a decent safety net, heading off problems before they need emergency response.
Have a quick kitten break before you resume your efforts to build a better world. #mastocats

The student bowed.
"Master, I am sorry."
"Why were you absent yesterday?" the sword master asked.
"I don't know. I... simply could not get out of bed."
"If this happens again..."
"Allow yourself to stay in bed."
"A blunt sword can be honed. A broken one can not."
