missmellifluous said: pls post more chester pics, I must live the kitty life vicariously through others while I’m away (also the bumps are prolly just benign skin tumors, they’re really common and nothing to worry about if they dont bother him!)
luckysee12 said: I thought it was funny that you apologized about his head bumps. I was just about to ask about them! My cat had a bump like that by his whiskers after a particularly big tick bite and I was hoping your cutie didn’t suffer a similar fate!
I was worried it was some kind of infection when they first cropped up! He’s an exclusively indoor cat so I was really worried how he got them! I did find several results online about benign tumors in old cats. They don’t seem to bother him, the vet drained them when he got his teeth cleaned and said they were mostly aesthetic issue unless they swell up in the way of his eyes or nose/mouth- they (expectedly) filled back up after a bit, but otherwise they seem like just another perk of being an old man. Thank you guys!!
Also, I will post ALL the Chester pictures!! My blog is really just a chester appreciation blog anyway let’s be honest.
My Cat Does A Mildly Exasperating Thing But I Love Him Anyway:
A photo story.
welcome to my desk
this is my cat
hi mum i am here yis hello
hi where are u going
do you like my sock paws
they are so conveniently located
next to the bane of ur existence
if you had to drop out of a class you are not a failure
if you had to take time off school you are not a failure
if you had to leave school for good you are not a failure
your worth is not determined by academia and this goes doubly so for disabled people and others for whom school is set against them
For reference, the post mentioned in this ask reads;
“Another thing, I mentioned archetypes earlier- it’s essentially a “type” of character (ex: preppy, princess, bad boy, jock), but not a stereotype, which is when it becomes oversimplified and based on assumptions/first impressions for a group of people (ex: punks all being druggie rebels, jocks all stupid meat heads) “
To clarify, it was deliberately used here. People interested in sports are often associated with poor intelligence and/or mental disability. That’s where “meathead” “blockhead” even “dumbell” as pointedly athlete-oriented insults come from, to name a few. This bullet point was to address these are harmful stereotypes; One, because they are often untrue and force pressure or negative treatment onto the person; and two, especially because there are people that fit these roles and struggle with them.
I know the post itself was relatively light-hearted making it jarring in contrast, so I will definitely make it a point to exercise caution in how I use these kinds of words and asterisk it and tw tag it when used in this situation as an example in the future.
if u find out about a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity thru tumblr n u know them irl:
1. if they haven’t come out to u, u rlly shouldn’t bring it up
2. if u rlly gotta bring it up (eg to ask about pronouns or something) do so privately and be respectful n a decent human being n all that
3. don’t u dare out them to other people irl, this could seriously endanger them
