ask, speak, whisper your secrets   about me   Hermes   Athena   Persephone   

The whisper on the wind / The breeze's laughter / The heart stumbles and plummets into the ocean / tricks turn me down into the root of the mountain / where rock means erosion at fingers of water / swift feathered feet on the air, laughing, at heart's sublimation...

Paganism, Myth, Archetype, Magic, Objects Esoteric, Art & Illustration, and other plumes of smoke and shadows.

"If you can manipulate your own consciousness, and perhaps that of others, (which is surely something that all artists are trying to do, whether they’re magicians or not) then you will have effected an act of magick."

Dear tumblr, I don’t ask for help very often, but I really need help with this.

These are my mom’s cats. The one on the top is Angel, an eleven year old cat who is shy, but can be very sweet when she warms up to a person. The one on the bottom is Lil Thang, a two year old cat who is very playful, outgoing, and affectionate.

The problem is my mom died almost a month ago from a very sudden brain aneurysm. Our family has been struggling to get her affairs in order since then, but her cats are still a loose end we haven’t been able to tie up.

If I can’t find a home or temporary home for both of these cats before September 10th, they will have to be sent to be euthanized.

Both of these cats are currently staying in my mom’s house, while my family works to get everything sold and moved out before the rent runs out. My aunt, who lives closest to there, is feeding and caring for them now, but can’t take them in because her dogs have a high prey instinct. I would absolutely love to take one or both of them in, but I won’t be able to until late September, once I move to a more pet friendly place.

The local animal rescue has deemed both of them unadoptable, Angel because of her age and shy personality and Thang because she has a mild food allergy that causes her to occasionally develop skin rashes.

Both cats are spayed and are in good health (baring Thang’s rashes, which we are currently looking into). We are willing to pay for all their shots and a vet check up before they get sent away.

The cats currently live in east Texas, not far from Texarkana. If you live in that area, I ask that you please signal boost, ask friends and family, and see if you can find a home for them. Please message me on tumblr if you can or know someone that can take them in.

If you live in or around Denver, CO, that’s currently where I live, and I can arrange transport for the cats to get here. If you can take them in, even on a temporary basis until the end of September, please let me know.

If you live anywhere else, we can see if transport can be arranged if you’re interested. Also, please signal boost if you can, because you never know where your followers are or where this might spread through them.

Please, please, please signal boost this. They are really good cats with only minor issues that do not warrant euthanasia.

If you have literally any questions about the cats or anything else, please don’t hesitate to message me.

Thank you so much!

PLEASE help blue out with this, everyone! Pass on the word, I’m begging you. Look at these beautiful cats.

Save the Kittehs!

"Like initiates into the Mysteries… all shamans stress the terror of initiation, including even the encounters with their helping or tutelary spirits, who can appear fearsome. But, as an Australian shaman advised, power can be gained from the spirits as long as we are not intimidated into panicking. There is no indication, in other words, that fear and pain are bad or wrong, as modern secular ideologies and psychotherapies tend to suggest. Dreams are full of fear and pain. So are myths. So are religions."
