Cthulhu - Adorable Cat Moment #12 Spoiled Cat

If any cat is anti-capitalist, Cthulhu is. Why, you ask? Because she constantly sabotages my desire to spoil her with gifts and toys. Like yesterday, after months of hesitation, I finally purchase her a small cat tree. In stead of enjoying the new play area she becomes infatuated with the box the tree came in!

Cthulhu - Adorable Cat Moment #11 New Cardboard Box!

After several months, my order of The Beauty of Horror arrived. Cthulhu was not impressed by the book and made the new cardboard box her outpost. But wait, a fish arrived on the scene, but the fish was too far out of reach for little Cthulhu. :(

Jason X (2001) Or Everything You Wanted to Know About Malcolm X (But Were Afraid to Ask Jason Vorhees)

The motive for Jason Vorhee’s murder spree seems obvious at first. A kid goes camping and while unsupervised drowns. The child’s mother seeks revenge and kills campers one by one. Striking back, the final girl beheads Jason’s mother. Unbeknownst to everyone, Jason or the disembodied spirit of Jason watched as his mother was beheaded.

Cthulhu - Adorable Cat Moment #10 PTSD Cat

After snoozing alarm for an hour, I feel asleep. Lost to the darkness, I found myself in a nightmare. Full of dread, I woke up sweating and found Cthulhu calming walking across my chest. Pacing, turning, and finally plopping down to rest on my abdomen. And even though I knew Cthulhu was planning to kill me. The small comforts had a soothing effect. 

Services dogs are all the rave among those with PTSD. While there are training classes, and organizations to get a dog to the point where they can be named a service dog, there are no official certifying bodies. Honestly, the officialness of service dogs is about as official as becoming a minister through a website. I say all this not to bash service dogs, but to make the point that there isn't much to a dog becoming a service dog. This begs the question, why not service cat? 

Cats are hunters. And like many veteran's they are hypervigilant, highly agile and trained to kill. I think it is about time to recognized cats as service animals. 

Philosophizing The Walking Dead S3E16: Welcome to the Tombs and the Violence of Nonviolence

Welcome to our journey into the guts of The Walking Dead. What kind of journey? A philosophical, psychoanalytical and political kind. What I would like to do over the next couple months is dig through the Walking Dead episode by episode to see what it can teach us. Thank you for following me on this journey. I look forward to reading your comments. Be forewarned: There are spoilers everywhere. Don’t forget to check out my previous post in the Philosophizing TWD series: Philosophizing TWD S3E15 This Sorrowful Life | Who Is Morally Superior - Rick Or Merle?

I never liked Andrea. From the start, she represented the senseless do-gooder. The only character positioning herself in the center of needed violence and calling for peace. On the opposite of the spectrum is Milton. The cowardly scientist. Both characters present the same obstacle. Andrea and Milton’s desire to avoid violence results not only in their own demise but escalates the bloodshed between the rival factions.

Cthulhu - Adorable Cat Moment #9 Photo bomb!

Earlier today, I while Cthulhu was distracted I photobombed her. She didn't know what happened. Out of revenge, she committed and act of blogging terrorism and sat on my computer while I was typing. No greater evil! Does anyone know the correct ceremony to a cat exorcism? I think she is possessed. 

Little Help? I think my cat is sick and I don't know what to do?

Dear Internet,
Earlier this week Cthulhu developed a red spot a little below her ear. I had a hard time getting a good look at it but when I did it looks like a scab. It kinda looks like she has been scratching herself and because some hair is missing. I thought it might be the nails so I trimmed them. I have been treating the wound with Neosporin and cleaning it daily. She is showing signs of being withdrawn. She has been hanging out on my doormat for two days all night. She never I've tried googling but that has been useless. Oh great internet, tell me what to do?

Open Letter to President Trump - An Offer You Shouldn't Refuse

Open Letter to President Trump,

You represent the worst society has to offer. Not only has the democratic process been destroyed beyond all recognition but you have inspired a hate not seen since Hitler. You've given the country's idiots permission to let lose the full brunt of their bigotry. You've turned back the clock on women, LGBTQ, and human rights. And you did so haphazardly, for the lulz. But I am hopeful, I'd like to think you'd agree, preventing Hitler-like behavior is a good idea. I'd like to make you an offer. But first, let me tell you how you broke my heart today.

Cthulhu - Adorable Cat Moment #8 Strange Behavior

Cthulhu is lying on the doormat. She's been there all night. Staring into the dark of the hallway. Trapping me in my apartment and making the path to my kitchen treacherous. Stranger still, yesterday she guarded my closet door for hours. Protecting me from mischievous ghost all night. What turns the cogs in her brain? From what great below churns her hunger?
