This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

As someone who regularly volunteers at an animal shelter this is so so so important! 

Important. Try adopting disabled pets. Trust me.

10 years in with a “less adoptable” pet. Although it’s been a challenge I wouldn’t trade her or the lessons she’s taught me for anything.

On the fine distinction between a box of books and a book in a box. The former may yield all sorts of treasures (or might be full of dreck), but the latter is always fun. The arrival of Anne Carson’s Nox (in a box) inspired a celebration of the self-contained tome, from the Ainu poetry book in a rough-hewn cardboard slipcase, to the compact OED with drawer for magnifying glass, to Madame Benoît’s Secrets for Better Cooking in rigid plastic container which dismantles to transform into a recipe book stand.

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

The CBC is Canada’s version of the British Broadcasting Corporation; it is Canada’s national public radio and television broadcaster, a publicly-funded crown corporation. The CBC’s radio stations began in 1936, and TV stations in 1952. Unlike its British counterpart, it does run some…

So bummed to see one of my favourite Canadian institutions being gutted. Access to unbiased news is something to be proud of and protected.
