I’ve decided my future home will have a bed in every room, and it will be a necessity that every room has a sleepy place.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

Let me tell to you a thing.

This is Lenore. I first saw her in a little cage at the Petco I frequent (I used to take my parents’ dog in for puppy play time), and she looked like the grouchiest, old, crotchety cat in the world, and I fell instantly in love. She was cranky, she was anti-social, hanging out at the back of her cage. Her fur was matted because she wouldn’t let the groomers near her.

She was perfect.

But I didn’t have a place for her. I wasn’t living in my own space yet, and where I was, I wasn’t allowed cats. So I pressed my face to the bars of her cage and I promised that if no one had adopted her by the time I’d bought a house, I would come back for her.

I visited her every week for over six months while I looked for a house. At one point, they had to just shave her entire rear-end because the mats or fur were so bad. They told me she clawed the heck outta the groomer that did it, screamed the entire time, and spent the next two days growling at anyone that came near the cage.

A couple of weeks later, I closed on my house. I went back and I got an employee, and I said: “That one. I need that cat.”

They got the paperwork and the lady who ran the rescue that was bringing the cats in told me that Lenore (at the time, Lila) was 8 years old, had been owned by an elderly lady who had died, and brought in to a different rescue, who’d had her for six months on top of the time I’d been seeing her at Petco.

This kitty had been living in a 3x3’ cube for over a YEAR because she was older and “less adoptable.”

I signed the paperwork, put her in a cat carrier, and drove her to my new home. I had pretty much nothing; a bed, an old couch, a couple of bookcases, and a tank of mice I called “Cat TV”. I let her out of the carrier and onto my bed, and I told her “I told you I would come back for you when I had a place. It’s not much, but it’s yours too now.”

Lenore spent the next three days straight purring non-stop. She followed me around the house purring. Sat next to me purring. Slept next to me purring. Leaning into every touch, purring, purring, always purring. She still purrs if you so much as think about petting her. She’s amazing, and I love her.

So, you know, if you’re thinking about adopting, and you see a beast that others consider “less adoptable,” think about Lenore.

As I understand, there are many methods to prevent pregnancy. So if you really don’t want to get pregnant then you should take the necessary precautions, otherwise you are just plain being irresponsible. I also understand that accidents happen even when people take the necessary precautions. In this case there are still other options besides abortion. Example, the morning after pill. (This prevents pregnancy and is not abortion) It may be unpleasant but, as I hear, so is abortion and pregnancy. It is not an over the counter drug and is easy to get. If by some miracle you still get pregnant, then yes it is unfortunate and ultimately up to you. As I mentioned earlier there are PLENTY of other options besides abortion.

There are many methods, but there’s a problem; accessibility, education, and safety. Plenty of people lack one or more of these. 

Accessibility: A person may not have the finances to acquire birth control. They may not have a low cost clinic, and/or clinic hours may be impractical with their work schedule. They may not have the transportation means to reliably visit a clinic and/or pick up a prescription. They may be minors who require parent’s permission in getting a prescription. 

Education: They may believe that birth control is too ineffective to be worth it due to poor sex education. They may not have knowledge on where to get pills. A person might not be properly informed as to how to correctly use their birth control method.

Safety: Birth control may not be safe for a person. Some people cannot take hormonal birth control for health reasons, and some people must avoid condoms due to allergies or other complications. 

Emergency Contraception: It’s great, but it may be age restricted in some countries. It also costs up to $50, which someone may not be able to produce in 24-72 hours. It also doesn’t work if you’ve already ovulated. Lastly, if you’re using a prescription method of birth control, you will not know when/if you need it. 

Please consider the world isn’t black and white for a moment, and that it’s not as simple as responsible or irresponsible. If contraceptives were easier to get many more people would use them. 

I haven’t seen this mentioned yet, which is odd because birth control does fail.

It seriously does happen, with 100% perfect use 2 out of every 100 couples just using condoms will get pregnant a year. 4 out of every 100 couples will get pregnant using just the pull out method a year. 1 out of 100 couples will get pregnant using hormonal birth control a year, etc. 

These things do occur, and when they do you are not obligated to carry a pregnancy because other people are not able to get pregnant -cylina

What anti choicers don’t understand is that pro choice doesn’t mean “abort all fetuses forever and ever”, it means that you have the choice to abort if you want to. If you don’t? If you want to go ahead with the pregnancy? Good for you! Pro choicers will stand by you and support you, because that’s what it’s all about. A choice.
