jillianremes:

I know there are tons of these posts going around all the time, especially recently since dashcon raised all that money so quickly. But I really need your help, and I hope you give me a chance.

This is Mica. She is a 10 week old kitten that was born a polydactyl, meaning she has more than the normal four toes on each foot. There are a lot of cats born like this, and it usually doesn’t have a negative affect on their life, or much affect at all. I adopted her two weeks ago when she was a bouncing, happy kitten like her siblings. My mother bought her for me to help me with my anxiety, and to get over the death of the first cat I bought myself several years ago, who died of kidney failure two months ago.

When I first got Mica she was a little strange; her foster mother said she was shy and a bit skittish because she came from a hoarding case that ended badly. We had adopted from a rescue shelter before, and this was nothing new; we had gotten through it before and kittens tend to be very adaptable. She played, purred and took naps like any normal kitten, but she was constantly licking her paws and laying down in the middle of playing for no reason.  

Then she started to waddle around like her feet were hurting her. I was concerned and took her to my local vet. He told me that, after some examination and an x-ray, her extra toe on three of her feet had become ingrown. I don’t know if any of you have ever had an ingrown nail, but just a little ingrown hair hurts; imagine it on your foot, times three. I was completely shocked and horrified to learn this, because the rescue group we had gotten her from never said anything.

I contacted them about this, and in short they didn’t bother to check it out because her brother and sister were both polydactyls and were fine. I couldn’t believe this was their excuse; I knew that some rescues didn’t keep track of their rescues after they were adopted (that’s what happened with our previous adoptions) but ignoring their physical needs to save some money was ridiculous.

I contacted them, and unfortunately since the problems started showing physical signs after the adoption, there’s nothing they can do, and nothing I can make them. My veterinarian has estimated that each foot will cost around $150 to sedate Mica and remove the nail. Already that’s up to $450, then there will be more for pain and anti-infection meds, which I have found to be around $50 or $60 from previous experience. That’s $500 at least, on top the $80 for the general check-up plus the x-ray. I am completely opposed to de-clawing cats, but this is causing her pain everyday and will get infected if left untreated, which could kill her. She’s only 10 weeks old and far more delicate than an adult cat.

This cat is the world to me; I just lost my first cat that I bought myself and though it’s only been a two weeks since I got Mica, she has made a huge difference. Since she is my cat, I have to pay for her with little to no help from my parents. My bills for food, gas, and my prescription for migraines has whittled me down to hardly $200. I can’t start my new job until the second week of August because I will be out of town for two weeks before for personal reasons. Even if I do a payment plan, I am literally down to my last penny if I want to get this done while sustaining my self as well.

Please. I hate asking for money, I hate depending on people who have their own problems. But my family believes that once you’re 18, you’re an adult. I’m on my own with this, and the best I can do is give it my all and hope for some sympathy from you guys. I don’t want to give her up to that rescue group who neglected her, or give her to a humane society where nobody would want her because she has medical bills no one wants to pay. Every single penny counts, and it appreciated beyond measure.

Even if you cannot donate, please reblog to spread the word. I don’t want to lose my cat. I can’t take another loss like this.

there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life” Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him that’s why Trelawney made that assumption

TRELAWNY WAS ACTUALLY A GREAT SEER SHE JUST MESSED UP SOMETIMES AND ACTED A LITTLE GOOFY SO NO ONE TOOK HER SERIOUSLY

BECAUSE CLASSICAL ALLUSIONS 
For those of you who don’t know your Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of the King and Queen of Troy. Apollo tried to get in her pants by giving her the gift of prophecy and took nice guy douche-bagging to a godly level by cursing her when she turned him down. 
The curse? That she would never be believed. 
So all of Cassandra’s warnings to the people of Troy fell on deaf ears. 
And in case you don’t remember, Trelawny mentions that her great-great-grandmother’s name was … you guessed it… “Cassandra” 

And just to prove, if anyone ever doubted, that JKR is pretty awesome and knows her shit, Tom Riddle’s birthday is December 31, 1929. He’s a Capricorn. Saturn was in Capricorn at that time, so yes, Saturn was in power. Saturn actually is the planet that rules Capricorn. Trelawny legitimately confused Harry with Voldemort because she was reading the wrong part of his soul.

"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.

Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.

If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.

I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:
IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.
1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.
2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.
3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”
4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”
5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.
TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.
Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.

I actually had to do this once. She lived.

Alrighty, guys! After the success of the fundraiser/raffle that I did for my surgery, I’m finally able to pay it forward! The Color Me Rad 5k contacted me about wanting to sponsor a giveaway on my blog - so of course I had to say yes! They also let me choose a charity to raise money for, and I chose the Wright Way Rescue, which is the rescue that my boyfriend and I adopted our dog Fozzi from! This is going to be a pretty amazing fundraiser for a pretty amazing cause. I’m hoping to raise at least $5000, if not more! All the proceeds will go directly to the Wright Way Rescue, minus around $800-$1000 to purchase the prizes for the giveaway that the Color Me Rad 5k is not supplying. You can speak to two of my previous giveaway winners here and here, this is not fake or a scam! I always make good on my giveaways! 

Color Me Rad is a 5K that fires off in a blaze of color bombs, color cannons, color mortars, and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.
Wright-Way Rescue is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Their mission is to reduce the number of homeless pets euthanized in the Midwest each year through an adoption program, community education, promotion of spaying and neutering, and a veterinary medicine program. They continue to save pets from rural animal control facilities where they are at a high risk of euthanasia, and instead offer them a second chance at a loving home in the Chicagoland area. Wright-Way places more dogs in adoptive homes than any other no-kill rescue in the State of Illinois on just 10% of the budget. Wright Way Rescue also suffered a tragedy last October when a school bus crashed into their facilities and destroyed their adoption center. You can read more about the incident here. They have been at a temporary facility ever since and need help rebuilding!
HERE ARE THE OFFICIAL RULES:
  • Must be following me, the Color Me Rad official tumblr, and my yoga blog
  • If you have instagram, follow me at natashaxjade (reblog with your insta username if you do)
