A Thing About a Cat

Dudemonkey Snowkitten has been admitted to the Rainbow Pet Orphanage after testing clear for FIV. No one in the neighbourhood came forth to claim it, and I am at my max with Tribble-The-Cat and &Bits already. If you'd like to adopt it, or help foot its costs of being prepared for adoption, please find their contact information below.

About Rainbow:
They are a super awesome vet clinic, Dr. Noreen is amazing with animals and her staff is top notch. I'm very grateful to +Kathryn Huxtable​​ for recommending her. The highest compliment I can give about any vet staff is that they handle Tribble and her tantrums well, and the Rainbow staff do beautifully with Ms. Crankyviciousbutt. I don't think a single one of them has come out of a checkup with bites or scratches, even with the extended testing she had to go through two years ago. They also handle my anxiety and paranoia with calm, soothing aplomb, which I am very grateful for.

The Orphanage is, like all small animal shelters, constantly in need of donations, referrals, and adopters for the wonderful animals they take in, so if you're looking for a new fur family member and live near Kansas City, I highly recommend them.

You can find their office here:
Rainbow Pet Hospital LLC
4468 Rainbow Blvd.
Kansas City, Kansas 66103
(913) 831-2034

Thanks for reading, and may your #Caturday be joyous and furry.

I'm told by the humans who live with me that two cats are enough for me, but the humans are wrong. I'm nowhere near KC though. :(

#Raspberriffic
 
Raspberry/Orange Brown Butter Muffins

Raspberries from the freezer, frozen when they were in season last year. Opening the freezer bag, the intense smell of raspberries filled the kitchen. Bringing the remembrance of summertime!

Big, plump, fragrant raspberries are such a treat this time of year. Using Cara cara orange zest and juice, the zest in the muffins. The juice, in a simple sugar/orange juice glaze, brushed on the hot muffins. I find when I zest a citrus fruit, I like to use the juice right away. No accidentally forgetting about the naked citrus in the fridge.

Using brown butter, brings a nutty deliciousness to the muffins.

Raspberry/Orange Brown Butter Muffins
Oven: 325 F

5 cups AP Flour
2 cups sugar
4 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
zest of 1 orange

4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups of buttermilk

1/2 lb of melted and cooled brown butter

Frozen raspberries as needed.

Whisk together the first 5 ingredients.

Mix the eggs and buttermilk together.

Add the wet to the dry mixture and mix well. Stir in the brown butter.

Brush your muffin tins with baking goop or muffin cups (baking goop is so much better). Place 1 tbsp of the muffin mix in the bottom of your muffin tin. Add 3 raspberries, another heaping tablespoon of muffin mix, more raspberries.

Bake for about 30 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick poked into the muffin, comes out clean.

While the muffins are baking, juice your orange, add a scant 1/8 - 1/4 cup of sugar and heat on the stove (in a pot) until the sugar is dissolved.

When your muffins are done baking, while they are still hot, brush with the orange glaze. Remove the muffins to a rack to cool.

Here is the technique to make brown butter:

Literature is very serious business.
 
"The discussion on the merits of poetry over prose soon escalated into a lethal brawl"

One of those articles that gives you some perspective. I mean, my views just aren't that strong, I'd say.
The 53 year old former teacher was a guest at the older man's home in Russia, and was arguing that real literature is poetry. The host, a 67 year old man, argued that it was prose. The guest ended up killing the older man for his views during the argument with a knife before fleeing. He was later captured.

Also recently in Russia, a man was shot during an argument over the theories of Immanuel Kant.

Russia: serious arguments.

A Russian teacher allegedly killed a friend in a drunken argument over literary genres, investigators have said.

Today tastes like failure, self-defeatism, and ego flagellation. I'm likely going to go into hiding until it passes. I should be ok, barring dropping another bookshelf on myself, which I don't plan on trying at this point in time. Be kind to yourselves whenever possible. ✌

It would be nice if we could focus a bit more on helping each other thrive rather than holding each other under the water.
 
Baby Boxes Are Awesome and Surrendering Moms Are Heroes

I saw this story and thought, "Wait, those have been around for awhile, is this really news to anyone?" http://www.mothering.com/articles/baby-boxes-safer-way-surrender-child/

But apparently it is news to some people that in some places in the world, there are safe, monitored ways for an unwanted baby to be dropped off so it can be cared for.

And apparently some people are offended by this, in particular because some of the groups who run some of these things are anti-abortion groups.  But I'd frankly rather see anti-abortion groups doing more exactly like this to support mothers and babies where the mother has either chosen or been required to give birth, rather than have these groups out attacking women making a different choice earlier in the pregnancy.  Too many anti-abortion groups only give a crap about a fetus until it's born; these groups are showing that they legitimately care about the resulting baby, and I can respect them for that part of their work, at least.

Apparently other people are upset that this unfair to the babies who won't know about their birth parents.  Um...yeah, okay, but you know what's worse for a baby than not knowing about its birth parents?  Dying a multi-day slow painful death of cold and starvation.  Robin will probably never know anything about her birth father and will know very little about her birth mother.  Pretty sure she's glad her birth mother had her in a hospital and listened to her own mother about calling an adoption agency instead of just walking away.  And even if she had just walked away, that still would have been better than having the baby in some hidden way and leaving her to die somewhere.  Robin is alive and thriving (and throwing an unrelated tantrum) right now because her birth mom surrendered her safely.

Birth mothers who surrender babies to hospitals, baby boxes, or other safe means need to be supported and applauded, not derided, not harassed for interacting with anti-abortion groups, not interrogated.

Would it be better if everyone had access to proper birth control so unwanted pregnancies never happened?  HELL YES.  Is that the world we live in?  HELL NO.  Would it be a better world if every mother could feasibly care for her baby, including those who a wider society devalues (ie girl babies) or will require a tremendous amount of care (ie severely disabled babies)?  HELL YES.  Again, is that the realistic world we live in?  NOPE.  So stop blaming mothers who maturely, rationally realize they can't cope.

Those who decry the baby box need to get over themselves, stop concern trolling, and check their privilege.  Parenting is really, really fucking hard.  Parenting while poor is so much harder.  Parenting alone is so much harder.  Parenting in a social situation that will punish you for having had sex/pregnancy is so so so much harder.  Parenting a disabled child without support and a fully paid health care system is so so so much harder.  These moms who surrender babies are HEROES for doing it.

And until such time as we see fit to actually fix misogyny, health care, and poverty, STFU and put in more baby boxes.  Make this easier and safer.

That's called being a human being.

We had these in Slovakia until some retarded "fighters for child rights" achieved to ban them. Now the babies are killed (born or unborn) instead of living desperate life of not knowing their biological parents. Great trade-off "fighters for child rights"!

(Well, I suspect that those were actually people who profit on abortions but I didn't have time to confirm it.)

So, I've been watching this, and rewatching as I've been using the minimal words to help lull myself to sleep, and being awake in the middle of it tonight is a bit strange, but...

I just caught the narrator saying something about there being no one around to appreciate <time period being shown>, no poets, no painters, etc., and it got me to thinking. If dinosaurs could have done cave painting, would they have lasted this far into the future, minus a cave being sealed off, effectively becoming a time machine?

I deal with chronic pain, and lately, a good bit of stress to make it worse. I feel very fortunate to have found this therapist as the body-work provided has given me new hope in being able to live normally again, and possibly be able to move back to full time, which is something I've not had for months. The things I appreciated most: As a new client, the therapist spent significant time communicating with me on their particular practice, style, and skills, and listened very intently to my concerns and health issues. The questions asked and answered helped clarify expectations and goals. The therapist then *proved* that they had listened carefully during the entirety of that first massage. I opted for a neuromuscular massage, as I have a number of trigger points and knots that have been out of control lately. The therapist did an excellent job in addressing these problem areas, and while some are still painful, 5 days later, my overall level of pain has significantly decreased, the points that still radiate pain do so at a much lower volume, and I've not had my "daily headache" in 3 days. Why do I mention these things? Because, for someone like me with chronic pain, knowing what is possible is important when selecting a therapist. For those without chronic pain issues to contend with, I would still highly rate and recommend this therapist. The excellent communication alone is worth its weight in gold, and the experienced massage techniques are platinum. I only wish I'd found this therapist 6 months ago, when my body first started seriously failing.
