naamah_darling: Tribal design of a wolf's head. (Wolfie)
Holy hell! Last night it stormed. I've lived through almost thirty-one years of Oklahoma weather, which is probably the most fucked-up in the country, and I've never seen anything like that. It was nothing but lightning and thunder for hours.

At one point, lightning struck so near to the house that the thunderclap was instantaneous. It was also terrifyingly loud. We usually get one or two like that during a good storm, but in terms of being absolutely hair-whitening, this one was second only to the time we heard three booming thunderclaps in a row, like the Great Old Ones knocking for admission into this world. (As I recall, my response to that one was "Yes, Thor?")

It crashed, louder than anything, and I screamed like a vixen. Sargon says he hollered, too, but I didn't hear him. The kittens nearly exploded -- their fur was all puffed out, and in the space of one second, they had all crammed into one corner of the cage so tightly it looked like one tiny cat with six enormous eyes. Poor little darlings.

And it just went on and on! I lay in bed, trying to sleep, and through the window I could see blue-white lightning. In thirty seconds, I counted twenty-three separate flashes of lightning. That part of it went on for more than an hour. I've never seen a storm that was that alive. It actually had me spooked.

Anyway, in other news, I heard from the lady who took in Grace the three-legged pirate cat, and she's doing so well! They are spoiling her rotten. She sleeps with her new people at night, gets kitty treats every day, has two dogs to browbeat, and gets lots and lots of love and kisses. She has a very good life, and I am so glad to be able to share that happy news with you. She wouldn't have found that home -- obviously the right one -- without y'all!

Right now, I am off to get work done: finishing preliminary designs for two boxes, then emailing with business stuff and getting some loose ends tied up. And after that's done, I get to sit down and write!

naamah_darling: The right-side canines of a wolf's skull; the upper canine is made of gold. (Kitty Love!)
I was reminded this morning that in all the chaos and foofaraw that though I updated the original post, I forgot to give you an important piece of good news:

Pirate Grace did indeed go home with an absolutely wonderful woman on Saturday, and I have received an email from her new mom that states that Grace fits in with their family as though she were born there. It was an email so full of obvious love that I got all sobby.

I knew from the get-go that this lady was Good People, and had no qualms at all about sending Grace home with her. It was clearly meant to be. Grace has settled in and is getting royally spoiled, as she deserves.

Thank you to everyone who donated to help me with her vet bills and boarding. And thank you, especially, to everyone who spread the word, because it was exactly that which did the trick: the friend of a friend of a friend thing.

She has a safe and wonderful home, sleeps on the bed with her new mommy, has a couple of docile canine companions to bully, and two very loyal human servants. She could not have asked for more, and I could not have asked for more for her.

I couldn't have done it without you. It was the right thing to do. Thank you for helping me do it.

EDIT: Miss Grace has found a home! Thank you all for spreading the word, which is indeed how this was possible, and thank you for the donations, which have more than covered her vet bills and are now covering vet bills for the three orphan kittens brought to me the day after I posted this entry. Any future donations will go to their upkeep, housing, shots, and spay/neutering.

This is Grace O'Malley.

Grace 01

Grace is a three-legged pirate kitty who has been bunny-hopping around my neighborhood and sleeping under my azaleas for several weeks. Despite her distinct port side list and her fearsome dueling scar, she's only about ten months old and sweet as anything.

Grace is a stray, and she needs a home.

This neighborhood is crawling with stray dogs and feral cats. I have seen her chased by dogs several times, and every time I see her she has more scars. I've watched her get bullied off of food by other cats because she has poor balance. Right now she's healthy, but this won't last. She is at a rather nasty disadvantage as she cannot effectively outrun danger or compete for food.

If you could help spread the word, we need to find her an indoor-only home with a settled family who can cope with a healthy but slightly special needs cat.

So, anyone in Tulsa or thereabouts who might be in need of a singularly affectionate and piratical ship's cat, please contact me. I'm at naamah at gmail dot com. I can take you to meet Grace, or I can call the vet and let them know you're coming, and you can see if you hit it off. This beautiful baby is very affectionate, as you can see from the following videos:





These lousy screencaps don't do her justice; she is a gorgeous little cat with absolutely amazing eyes.

Screencaps below for the vid-impaired! )

Grace 02

She's a total charmer, and she gets around pretty good on that one leg, though she never runs for far, and she can't corner too well yet.

I have taken her to the vet. She has received all necessary indoor cat vaccines and she has been screened negative for infectious diseases and parasites. The vet thinks she has already been spayed, though if she has not been, I will pay for that, too.

Grace comes with a clean bill of health, rabies vaccination tag and certificate, and a supply of Advantage Multi, which protects against earmites and internal parasites as well as fleas. This cat is ready to take home.

As I can't keep her here at chez Naamah, Grace will be boarded at the vet's at my expense until such time as I can find her a safe and loving family.

I will be going to visit Grace, take pictures, sweet-talk the staff, and pay for her bills, so you can count on lots of updates. Pretty much until she's placed.

If anyone has any questions, again, I can be reached at naamah at gmail dot com.

Since I don't know how long she'll have to be boarded, I am taking donations toward her medical expenses at the same address. You can see her initial bill here, just so everything's aboveboard. Hell, you can even call the vet and ask if they do, in fact, have a three-legged cat named Grace in back, waiting for a home.

Donations, however, are of far less importance than just getting word out there, so if you can't donate anything that's absolutely fine. Donate a post and point people this way. It's free, and it'll help a lot. Hotlink pictures, quote text, embed videos, it's all good.

ETA: If we go past the amount required for the vetting and this week's boarding, I'm going to post a notice here. I WILL keep taking donations, because I don't know how long she'll be there, but anything left over after that will go to help the orphan kittens I was brought the day after this entry was posted, and any extra from that will go to the clinic's angel fund. So, either way, I'm not keeping the extra. On my solemn word, it will go to kitties.
