We had the kitten (5 months old) neutered (September 19, 2023). The very same day he was racing around the house. Finally he settled down. We also had them trim his nails. There has been a marked difference in his aggression. But he gets mad at you and attacks... just a little gentler!
Three days ago (8/27/23) we rescued a 4 to 5 month old kitten from another neighbor who was mistreating him. He was viscious and attacking everyone/everything in sight. My hands are pretty torn up. We named him Purcival (for Percival only emphasizing the purr) since he didn't respond at all to his original name. He wasn't very socialized- he was put in a cage all day and kept in a room (in the cage) where nobody ever went into, except to clean the litter box and feed him one small meal a day. He's responding well to being out of his cage and being with us and our dog, Osey.
My Post Office is experiencing a staffing shortage right now. Some weeks we get all the mail we're supposed to get on a daily basis, other times we get mail once or twice a week.
For this reason I am switching my mailing address for swapping to the following:
P.O. Box 19709
Denver, CO 80219
Please know that as soon as I receive an item from you, I will let you know via a PM, page comment, or rating. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Please note that I am unable to print at the moment, especially digital downloads. I prefer physical products... just in case there may accidentally be something like digital papers on my Etsy Wishlist. I am sometimes fooled by a listing.
I have tons of washi tape and would love to do a few private swaps if you're interested! Just pm me!
For bath, beauty, and incense items as part of a swap, please review the following as they are the only things I want/need/will use:
face masks (not scrubs)
sugar scrubs for the body not face
backflow or stick incense (have holders)
And preferred scents include:
any kind of lemon- including lemongrass
any kind of orange
any mix of watermelon
jasmine (love this scent)
Buddhist temple scents
items/scents intended for men (for hubby)
SCENTS NOT WANTED:
any kind of linen or rain scents
Thank you so much for reading!
I gave away thousands of dollars of crafting supplies, papers and ephemera when I thought I was done with crafting for good (2019). I am slowly trying to build up my supplies again. If you wish to RAK stuff, I would be ever so grateful! Or we could do a private swap and trade items. I'm always open to inexpensive ideas.
I'm married to the love of my life and ever so grateful he is alive! He almost died several times between May 2022 and January 2023. He took until April 2023 to completely and totally heal from the experience.
My husband and I (and our remaining dog) are grieving the loss (07/03/2023) of our 14 year old Lhaso/Shitzu mix, Cookie Tank. He was a wonderfully faithful companion. We are spending extra quality time with our 9 year old Besingey, Osey (short for Osiris Anubis Hectus), as he is missing his buddy. They were very close.
I am disabled and dealing with my own health issues keeps me busy. I struggle with CPTSD in addition to my physical difficulties. I am active in therapy and work closely with my Psychiatrist.
During the spring and summer months I love to garden and grow container flowers and produce. I used to have a black thumb, but this last year (2022), I did pretty well at keeping everything alive and even thriving. I'm a huge lover of nature and try to partake of her beauty as often as I'm able.
I'm not very religious in the sense of church politics and such, but I am profoundly spiritual. I refer to myself as having a higher power and leave it at that. I don't force my views or beliefs on others and appreciate the same courtesy extended to me. I do love relevant Bible verses, Buddhist teachings, knowledge of nature, and such. I don't subscribe to messages of hate or discrimination. There's just not enough time given to us, as a species, to waste any of it on anything but unity, peace, and goodwill.
However, I am a hard fast Libertarian. I love my country and appreciate our Military. I am a staunch supporter of the Constitution and am always grateful for the rights afforded me.
Halloween/Samhain is my absolute favorite holiday and I love to do crafts themed in that vein all year round. I am especially fond of Nightmare Before Christmas. Tim Burton ROCKS! But he is second to my hero Guillermo del Toro. I have seen everything he's done!
I enjoy EVERY type of music except rap/jazz. I'm more into mood and feeling when it comes to what I listen to. I am fond of discovering new music so welcome input.
Different artists I'm fond of includes:
Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Taylor Swift, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Il Volo, Sarah Brightman, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Pink, Ennio Morricone, Enya, The Eagles, Ray Stevens, Weird Al Yankovic, The Fray, Andrea Bocelli, Imagine Dragons, Tori Amos, Meatloaf, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Dido, and many, many more.
I'm more about the melody and lyrics than I am the actual group or singer. I may only like one single song by an artist for this reason. I'm the farthest thing from a fan girl you can get!
I have always been a voracious reader of fiction. Lately I have discovered non-fiction and am eager to discover what's out there. I like narrative stories of things that actually happened. My all-time favorite author is still Dean Koontz and I have recently gained a great fondness for Ryan Holiday.
I took a long break from reading around 2020 and am finally feeling a pull to start again in 2023.
I love it all; ATCs, die-cuts and stamps, washi tapes, handmade journals (think junk journals), journal pages, mail art, cloth "stuffies" (dolls and stuffed creations), letters, tea swaps, handmade envelopes/pockets, and ephemera swaps, to name a few.
