 The weird wavs l 've
 accidentally trained my
 cat to wake me up
 I can't stand animals that are obnoxious in the mornings when
 they want to get up and be fed. So, l've taken a pretty hard
 stance on ignoring obnoxious morning behavior to avoid
 reinforcing it. However, Garrus is a very fast learner, and he's
 noticed that there's a few things I'm really bad at ignoring. I've
 created the most bizarre alarm
 1. Chowing on my phono oord. Ho only dooo it in tho morning
 when he wants me to get up. I've never seen him do it any
 other time. It's really hard for me to ignore my cat chewing on
 something plugged into an outlet. And so I have accidentally
 trained him to chew on it when I'm being stubborn and I don't
 want to get out of bed. Solution: unplug the phone and go
 back to sleep.
 2. Swatting at my curtains. He likes to do it when he has the
 night zoomies and l'm trying to sleep instead of giving him
 attention. It's a really annoying sound. Like, REALLY
 annoying. And in my half-asleep state, my initial response
 was to grumble and tell him to knock it off. Didn't work so well
 for a cat that is doing an obnoxious behavior to get attention
 He didn't care that I was yelling at him-he was getting the
 attention he wanted. The one time l was just too exhausted to
 deal with him and didn't respond, he gave up pretty quickly.
 That'o whon I roalizod ho'd boon playing mo. Now I juot
 ignore it and he stops pretty fast.
 3. Changing the temperature on my snake's HerpStat. I don't
 even know how he started this one, but one day I was
 lounging in my bed in the morning and I heard the HerpStat
 beeping like it does when the temp has been changed. And l

this dog that i dogsit for is an actual angel sent from heaven, evidence:
he’s 100 lbs and so gentle i don’t need any special collar or leash or harness to walk him, ever
he was meant to be a service dog but he was too shy so he became a rescue, can u even imagine
so well behaved he waits for me at the tops and bottoms of flights of stairs until i tell him it’s okay to go ahead up/down the next flight
he somehow communicates to his dads how much he loves me bc they tell me every time i leave and they come back he’s sad ?? my son !
he knows that if it rains or snows or he gets wet he needs to wait at the bottom of the stairs inside their condo to be towel dried
he is trained to towel dry himself; i hold out the towel and he wiggles his body through it back and forth until i dry his tail and that’s his signal to go ahead and go inside
he hangs out by my feet all evening making big impatient huffing noises until i go in the bedroom with him and sit up in bed doing whatever i’m doing so he can sleep by me

like i feel the need to reblog this post bc i neglected to include evidence:
loves pets and attention but is shy so once given pets and attention basically loses his mind and rubs his face all over you while not knowing what to do with his entire 100 lbs self
always a slut for chin scratches
spots of white on chest and toes and chin
will pretend to be scary at men when they come into the house until i reassure him it’s ok
other dogs Love him bc he’s so big and so sweet and so chill and it’s fun to walk the best looking dog who is also the nicest dog while everyone around you is like “wow ur dog is so cool” like thanks i made him
if u ask him ‘who’s a good boy?!?!’ he seems genuinely concerned it might not be him until you confirm such to be true

Please always confirm to him that he is not only a good boy but the best boy

sit up: kamorth: nerdygirlnoodles: Okay, but seriously on the topic of straight people being so overly concerned about their children being exposed to homosexuality As some of you know, I am a makeup artist in a holistic beauty boutique in a very wealthy area of eastern New York. The week before Halloween I was offering simple costume makeup designs for both adults and children. So my last client of the evening was a 15 year old girl who came in to get her makeup done for the Halloween dance at her school. I was enjoying a conversation with both the girl and her mother when suddenly the topic of transgender came up. I got a little nervous because I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut when I hear people speaking negatively about these sorts of topics and as I mentioned, my store is in a very upscale, white conservative area Anyway, the girl starts telling us that her friend prefers to be a boy now. She says it very simply and comfortably and it made me happy to see her talk about it as if it was really no big deal Her mother says How does she even know what transgender is though? She's a little young to be making a decision like that. I really think the media is taking things too far with all this gay stuff. I'm not against it or anything, but didn't you just tell me two boys in your class are dating too? The girl said that yes, two boys she knew were dating and another boy she knew was gay also. (And she also corrected the pronouns her mother used for her friend) nl don't mind that she knows that homosexuality is," the mother said But I don't think it should be taught at such a young age. Did you know it's on Disney channel now? It took me a moment to respond, I just kept painting the girl's face until I could figure out what I wanted to say, Well," I said. "We tend to teach heterosexuality literally from the time a child is born. Most children's books and movies are even centered around a romance of some kind like a Prince and a Princess for example. There's rarely a children's movie that comes out where the main male and female character don't end up marrying each other in the end. If we don't have a problem flooding our children's minds with heterosexuality from the time they are able to sit up and watch a movie on their own, what is so wrong with showing them two boys or two girls being in love? We aren't showing them sex. We aren't showing them anything inappropriate. Since when is love inappropriate? If we show them love in all it's forms (be it gay or straight) from an early age, they will see that it's all perfectly normal and natural and maybe we can finally put homophobic the past.." The woman considered this for a second and then said "I just feel like they see it and then they start to think that they might be too And maybe they are. But isn't it better for them to know that it's okay? They aren't hurting anyone." Then the girl said. "No ones going around just thinking they are gay because they know what gay is, mom. I know what a chicken is, that doesn't mean I'm going to wake up tomorrow and start clucking." I loved this kid. I hope she does well in all of her endeavors I'm not going to wake up tomorrow and start clucking Teach them well and let them lead the way.
