When I first picked Atticus up from @aarcs and brought him home, he flopped out of the kennel and immediately started purring. It was love at first sight. He made a home with me, and I made a home with him. He knocked all my plants over, carried poop around in his cone, pounced on me while I slept, and even knocked photos off my walls. He also slept on my chest, purred as we fell asleep together, and made me laugh all the time.
Everyone told me “you’re going to be a foster fail!” And “how could you ever let him go?!” And my response was “well, I don’t know what I’ll do with him!” I have plans for my life that involve living abroad, I don’t know when or how, but I sure as heck didn’t know how a cat would fit into this. But, hehe, that has become “I don’t know what I’ll ever do without him,” and everyone who said I wouldn’t let him go was right... I decided to adopt this sweet little chaotic monster. I decided than any unknowns or uncertainties were so worth figuring out when the time comes. I decided that this little friendship, this crazy amount of love, is so worth any risk that may come from this.
When he first came to me he was healing from eye surgery, and now he is this perfect, healthy, beautiful dude. And when he first came to me, I was heartbroken, lost, and living in a way that was not at all serving me. And now, I am living a life that is so much different, and so much more what I need. Together, we have helped each other to become healthier, happier, and surrounded by so much love. Love begets love. Healing begets healing.
He has moved on to digging in my plant pots, sleeping on my head, burring himself under pillows to nap, and tearing through my apartment. He is just as insane as when I got him, and he is equally just as sweet and loveable.
So, welcome sweet little kitty. You’re here forever. ❤️😻❤️
Looks like we’ve got another mystery on our hands!
Pirates Ahoy is pretty good! I really enjoyed myself and really found the time to go by quickly in this surprisingly fast paced and action packed addition to the Scooby Doo library. The animation is the same as the previous two films, which is fine but the style is getting very boring and is beginning to lose the flare it once had in my mind. The character designs are very copy and paste at this point but strangely enough I found the design of the pirates to be quite engaging, going into the film I had vivid memories of them as a child and I can clearly see why with her gross hyper detailed features.
The story is also good, the writers are now taking more and more risks as they’ve now finally settled on a narrative that really works. As always it can be predictable but so far this is the most cinematic film since the witches ghost, it had a fun edge to it that managed to take the story to some exciting places. As for the villain itself, I’d say it’s my favourite so far as weirdly enough the writers took the time to make us understand their motivations and their plan; this was different and unexpected and so I must commend the writers for giving us more than just a rampaging idiot in a costume. I especially enjoyed the action, again unexpected but it felt like it had some real consequence behind it as an entire ship sank with the Gang on board, this also managed to showed that the films setting was completely malleable and I really liked that change.
As for negatives, I didn’t like the eventual reveal, it felt rather rushed and strange as when the mask came off I had almost all but forgotten who it was! I won’t call this a major complaint however as I was still invested enough in their motivations. I would also say that I feel like certain aspects of the film genuinely seemed illogical, a fair few scenes felt like filler that the writers didn’t really give any second thought, these scenes took me out of the film and when the writers started caring again I found it hard to get back into the groove of things.
However Pirates Ahoy is good! I’m enjoying a change in direction and am hopeful for the future ⭐️⭐️⭐️
