"Strange tradition from the forgotten rural years." Bees attend keeper’s funeral, 1956.
This is my cat Sophie.
And she’s been my best friend for almost two years, since I adopted her from a cat sanctuary in Oyster Bay, NY.
Sophie’s grown from a squirmy, tiny, playful kitten into a thoughtful, hilarious GIANT of a cat. Seriously, she’s huge (normal-sized cat for scale).
She really likes: watching TV, chasing pieces of dry food before eating them, sniffing faces really close, snuggling, and trying to drink out of human cups.
Last Thursday, someone was crashing on our couch and opened the windows wide—windows that are normally kept shut. Sophie took a pretty major fall—four stories down onto concrete. She suffered some spinal injuries, lung trauma, and had to have air removed from her chest—pretty scary stuff for both of us.
To help with the rising vet bills, my roommate set up an Indiegogo page. I hope you’ll share it. Even though our initial goal was set at $500, the vet bills have more than tripled that. We’d also love to give any extra money we raise to Ladew, the sanctuary I got Sophie from.
If you could reblog this, that would be wonderful. If you’d like to contribute—even better! Sophie came up with some pretty great perks.
Your good thoughts mean the world to us.
Megan and Sophie
June 29th, 1994: Diana was due to appear at a Vanity Fair dinner the same evening a television interview in which Charles had confessed to his extramarital affair with Camilla Parker-Boweles was to air. Knowing this, Diana particularly picked a little black dress that showed off her good figure and plenty of skin for the event. (It was later described as a “little wisp of chiffon.”) Designed by Christina Stambolian, Diana had purchased it a few years before when shopping with her brother, but had been hesitant to wear it because of how much it revealed and its color. She chose this occasion to debut the dress. The next morning, it was she, not Charles, who made the front pages of the newspapers. The media was quick to label it as the first “revenge dress”, as well as the, “Up Yours, Charles” dress. It is one of Diana’s most remembered pieces.
DIANA OVER EVERYONE TBH.
