Is anyone educated in cat health? I need help my cat has two teeth left but one is swollen. The vets won’t take it out because the anaesthetic could kill him as he is so old and fat, we gave him medicine and it looks like this now
(Don’t mind the food on his chin he’s a messy eater)
The weird thing about me and language is that, technically my first language was Mandarin Chinese. And then at some point in my childhood I just started speaking English more and more frequently, and Mandarin less and less. To the point where nowadays I can’t actually speak Mandarin all that well and English is functionally my first language. But sometimes I feel like the fact that my first language wasn’t English makes itself known. Because sometimes when I talk I feel like I’m getting strangled by the concept of language itself.
[ID: text reading “Body modification (or body alteration) is the deliberate altering of the human anatomy or human physical appearance. It is often done for aesthetics, sexual enhancement, rites of passage, religious beliefs, to display group membership or affiliation, in remembrance of lived experience, traditional symbolism such as axis mundi and mythology, to create body art, for shock value, and as self-expression, among other reasons.” ID ENDS]
I don’t know why this bit about body modification hits so hard, but I’m here for it.
I have no idea how people just have fully-formed ocs without a story to tie them to, tbh. Like, technically I have a lot of ocs, probably enough to populate a small town. But most of them are really just... two rough ideas tied together with scotch tape that I labelled ‘use in story someday’. Most of them don’t even have names. I don’t even have faceclaims for them. I love my ocs, but it’s mostly because I love writing and I love learning and I’m interested in the lives of other people who aren’t me. So they’re more like vessels for me to do all those things; write, research, and think about how people who are not me live.
I never really got into HowToBasic simply because food wastage in such a manner just... really squicks me out to a huge degree. Like, I’m fine with the destruction of inanimate objects, until it’s something I could put in my mouth and have its nutrients absorbed in my digestive system. At that point, it just makes my stomach turn.
Something I do find cool as I went from secondary school to a higher learning institute is... just how big polytechnics and universities are? Like, these schools are huge, and the infrastructure for all these different places tend to be different depending on the needs of the students. And honestly, it’s just cool to go to school early and walk around to explore the place before you need to go to class. Big places man, I love big places. There’s so much going on all localised in one space.
