least you think that i was kidding about Calcifer’s future as a fashionista, voilà. his first late night photo session. ???✨ IG: @calciphynx
took Cal to the vet yesterday to get bloodwork done for allergy testing because he has some pretty bad allergic reactions to food. long story short, poor thing was shivering pretty badly in his carrier every time we had to walk around outside (which was a lot) despite having blankets, so i went and bought him a dog coat today. fun times ensued and will continue to ensue because thanks to Japan he’s gonna be a fashionista once i finally stop being poor. which means i’ll never stop being poor. fuck me. you can follow Cal on his Instagram:, which very much needs updating. video clips like the collage above can only be seen via “stories” on the IG app. he also makes appearances on my Snapchat: queerascat zzz… (Source: https://www.instagram.com/)
after two long days of frantic cleaning and setup amidst long work hours, i was finally able to go out into the rain and bring Calcifer (Cal) home ahead of the slowly approaching typhoon. he’s now been home for 24 hours and i can honestly say that it’s like he should have always been here to begin with. but also that it’s as if i’ve finally gotten back something that goes beyond finally having a cat again. something that i lost 4 years ago in losing my two Devon Rex, with whom he seems to have so much in common with that i could honestly cry. ;( having met and worked with hundreds of cats and kittens (among other animals) during the course of 3 years spent as a volunteer photographer at an Australian humane society, i can honestly say that he is such a unique and special little cat…
anyway. went back to the petshop for another visit after work today and finally got some decent snaps of still-yet-to-be-named kitten. i know i said previously that i’d be bringing him home on September 25th, but i’m doing everything i can to get him out of that petshop sooner. hopefully by this Saturday after work, so sorry for the Tumblr silence broken only by goblin kitten spam. things will get back to “normal” around here eventually. after, you know, the kitten is home, has a name and his own Instagram account that possibly maybe might repost to a Tumblr blog eventually. yeah. then you’ll stop seeing goblin kitten spam here and things will get back to “normal”. yeah.
