"badly explain your fursona"

um... look, the *accurate* explanation is "post-ego-collapse refugee dinosaur from an alternate dimension, who used to be a Martian paleontologist," so

no, seriously: I WILL NOT ACCEPT FOLLOWS UNLESS YOU SEND ME A DM (or unless I'm already following you; follow-backs are auto-accepted). just say hi! if you're too afraid of me to send a DM, what the &*$^ makes you think I'm willing to let you see the stuff I post followers-only? sheesh.

a month or so ago I put a box on the cleared-out bottom shelf of the bookcase next to my desk after we moved things around in the office, and lined it with a blanket, thinking a cat would like to nap there. neither of them ever did, as far as I could tell. I took out the blanket last night and put it elsewhere. today I look down and see this. 9_____9 CATS

the crows called me, so I put out peanuts for them. they've learned to listen for my "tok tok tok" call; one almost always shows up when I do that, and that one will call others when I've gone back inside. ^______^

today is (according to my PAWS calendar) Bald Eagle Appreciation Day. oh... wait, it was this entire weekend, yesterday was *also* Bald Eagle Appreciation Day.

I just want you to know that I appreciate bald eagles. they are very big and nice to look at, but they're usually very mellow even when you're raking up their poop. (guess what I did on Friday?) they supposedly prefer fresh-caught salmon but they'll also eat pretty much any old garbage, we had one this last year who refused to eat fish and would only eat rats. we called him the "rat eagle." also I got to pet one while he was recovering from sedation. and they have *really big talons*. they're just generally remarkably big birds, and it's always a bit alarming to see them up close, like "dang this bird could seriously mess me up if it wanted to."

this has been my appreciation post for the majestic trash-eating lazy-ass rat eagle. (I still personally prefer crows)

okay so I saw a mention on my timeline of "jellicle poss" and, well.

so one of the first times I saw an opossum in the wild was in Oakland, we (roommates and I) were waking up, mumbling around the kitchen getting coffee and breakfast-like things, and I looked up and said "damn, that is a *big* cat on the back fence. .... that is a *very ugly* big cat on the back fence. ............ oh."

so now I'm imagining the musical "Cats" and one of the characters is an opossum who is just... there. sort of kind of trying to dance and sing and follow the cats' leads, but mostly just being there, maybe munching on some ticks, with its weird naked tail, just... chillin'. maybe the possum is going to win the jellicle thing! you don't know! he could be the prettiest, most popular possum ever!

the sparrorb (sphearrow?) has taken up residence on the porch. when I went out to put some food on the non-snow-covered shelf ledges and swap the frozen-solid suet for an unfrozen brick, it didn't fly away but skittered off to the side and hid behind the gardening stuff. as soon as I went back inside it came out and commenced stuffing everything into its gullet as fast as possible. XD

Raziel came up while I was out on the porch doing this, cruising carefully around the edge of the living room and padding across the TV shelf, but at his closest approach I accidentally bonked my head, which caused me to squeak as a snow shower went down my neck, and now he won't come into the living room at all. THE SNOW IS OUT TO GET HIM, he is now 100% convinced of this.

eeeee it's still snowing! I took the tarp off the catio, and now the cats are freaked out because they can see MEASURABLE ACCUMULATION OF SNOW ON THE PORCH (less than an inch but still). Nar is Distracted by it, but Raziel is Concerned, and won't go near the porch door. meanwhile there's a sparrorb (sparrow orb) bopping around the suet feeder, and the crows are hanging around looking for handouts, so of course I gave them some peanuts. I might go walk down to the pond later, and take a handful of peanuts and dry oatmeal to share.
