I know cats have a stigma of being evil little robots who care for nobody but themselves. I don’t deny that there are some out there like this. But in defense of the large majority of darling cats who have been given a bad name due to the wicked few, I would like to tell you a story…

I am asthmatic. I’m not as bad as some; my asthma is generally well-controlled, and I don’t have much trouble with it on a daily basis. However, as all asthmatics know, getting sick becomes a nightmare. Even a small cold can turn into a days-long asthma attack, one that is very painful, and very annoying for me and those around me. The asthma cough sounds like an ill seal at best, or an angry moose with a nasal condition at worst. Y'all with asthma, and y'all with asthmatic friends, know exactly what I’m talking about. The bark. The hack. The Cough Heard Round The World. It’s painful, it’s loud, and it doesn’t stop. Even the rescue inhaler can only do so much to calm it. It just has to run its course with the cold.

Well, this week I caught the crud, and in the past few days it deteriorated into The Cough. Last night, I took some NyQuil to try and stave it off for as long as I could, just to try and get some sleep. That meant that for a few hours, I was cough-free. After that, I was still doped up enough to sleep through some of it. However, by 2am the sleep aid had worn off and The Cough woke me up. Since lying down makes it worse, and I didn’t want to wake my sister, I sneaked out of my bedroom into the living room, where I sat on the recliner and proceeded to hack up a lung while I waited for my next dose of NyQuil to kick in. That is when I noticed Simon.

Simon is a Russian Blue with a masterful resting-witch-face and an attitude to match. She (yes, she’s a girl, that’s another story) is old, fat, proprietary, and attitudinal. She isn’t shy about telling you when she is displeased, and does so with a loud shriek and some teeth or claws thrown in. She is convinced she owns the place, and owns all of us in turn. She is particular about where you can pet her, like most cats; and, like most cats, she loves her sleep and hates to be woken up.

And of course, my hacking woke her up.

Attempting to whisper an apology in between bouts of coughing, I noticed she was getting off her perch atop the chair nearby. She stretched, made a little squeaking sound, and trotted over to me.

I expected her to demand petting as payment for having woken her precious sleep, but she did not. Instead, this traditionally cranky dragon of a cat did something that amazed me.

She began to purr loudly, and sat herself directly on my aching chest. She kneaded my sternum softly, and nosed my chin as if to say, “I’ve got this, you sleep.” Even though I was still coughing, and bouncing her horridly in the process, she remained settled on my chest right above my diaphragm, purring loudly so that it vibrated through my ribs. I don’t know what magic spell she was chanting between her boat-like purrs, but within minutes my cough had subsided and I was able to sleep.

I didn’t wake up until about 4:30. When I did, it was to discover that my lap and chest were devoid of Simon’s presence, and I was coughing again. As I started coughing once more, I heard her familiar “I’m here” squeak from the area of the water dish. I heard some hurried lapping, and then her heavy gallop across the floor. She flumped onto my lap again, and resumed her purring and kneading. She had evidently been doing that for the past 2 hours, and had only left to get some water. Hydrated, she had returned to take care of me.

So yes, she has her share of evil, jerk-cat moments, but I can no longer pretend that Simon is entirely heartless. For that matter, I now refuse to believe that about any cat. Just because they act like a jerk doesn’t mean that they don’t love you.

So, fun fact. Scientists have not figured out why cats purr but one of the leading theories is that it helps stimulate the healing process because cats purr even when they are sick or hurt.


i’m crying, holy shit i love cats so much.

ah, yes, the traditional crying over cats in the crowded laundromat time is upon us.

In case it triggers anyone, Louis CK’s new thing starts with 15 minutes about abortions and him repeatedly saying “It’s killing babies. But that’s okay!”

And then going on to talk about people complaining about pro-life protestors being ‘so angry, and shrill’. “Of fucking course they’re angry! They’re mad about babies being murdered!”

This is not a viewpoint I expected from Louis CK but I am now Done.

Provocative/shocking does not automatically equal funny, or good, Louis.

So, I have a few things to say about the current Magneto…mess.  It took me some time to figure out what I wanted to say.  So first, everyone needs to go and read a summary (or the actual comic) of Uncanny X-Men 199.  I just read it recently, and I’m certain that this colors my thoughts.

Super short version: One of the subplots is Magneto taking Kitty Pryde to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum to try to help her find out what happened to her great Aunt.  It turns out that he knew her in Auschwitz under her married name, which is why he didn’t realize until someone else came forward.  He’s being remembered by the other survivors as someone who worked hard to keep as many people around him alive as he could.  (then Mystique shows up to arrest him and starts a fight IN THE MUSEUM…I hate Mystique, TBQH, but this is a bit of an aside.)

So today, I wake up and hear that Magneto is joining Hydra.  HYDRA.  The fascist organization that AT THE LEAST collaborated with the Nazis, and depending on which continuity you like, are actual Nazis.  They are lead by the Red Skull, a literal Nazi.

This is the same writer, Nick Spencer, who decided that Captain America, a character modeled on the golem to try to prod America into fighting the Nazis and saving the Jews of Europe, was not just Hydra, but had ALWAYS been Hydra.  This was shitting all over Jack Kirby’s legacy, as well as that of Joe Simon (I only prioritize Kirby due to his real life anti-Nazi exploits).  It indicated a lack of care for a legacy character that was placed in his care.

And now he’s at it again.

In between, he had villainous “social justice warriors” and had Sam Wilson apologize to a white guy for bringing up race.

Nick Spencer is a white supremacist.

I tend to not drop these accusations lightly, but he’s established a pattern.  Even aside from his on-the-page garbage, he’s been particularly awful to fans on social media who object to his “creative” choices.  In general, his behavior has been worse towards minorities, of course, and this is after controlling for the fact that minorities, Jews in particular regarding Cap and Black people re: Wilson are the ones directly hurt by his terrible actions.

@marvel, you need to fire him.  He is dragging your most popular characters through the mud for some cheap publicity and to promote his hateful agenda.  I, previously, maintained a subscription to Marvel Unlimited, bought several monthly comics in addition to that, and regularly bought the collections.  And that’s just the business that the comics division got from me.  That’s all over, until Nick Spencer is no longer writing for Marvel.  As much as I hate to do so, I will not be buying Miss Marvel, I will not be buying Spider-Man, and I won’t be buying X-Men.  I CERTAINLY won’t be touching any of the garbage Nick Spencer has touched until the damage he’s done has been undone.  You just blew up the continuity recently, but you already need to do it again, just to salvage the fundamental nature of several of your most popular characters.

@marvelentertainment I’m really enjoying the current run of Hawkeye, starring Kate Bishop, and I have been looking forward to all of the upcoming films but I may stop purchasing all Marvel comics, merchandise and movie tickets. And I’m sure a lot of people will join me. 

Some of Marvel’s media has moved and shaped me but I may need to boycott the entire brand if nothing changes. There are many things from the racism of the Dr. Strange movie to the exclusion of female characters (such as Wasp as a founding member of The Avengers. The one who named them.), to writing Steve Rogers and Eric Lensherr as Nazis, that I will not abide by. Please change or face financial consequences!

I boycotted the comics when Hydra-Cap appeared. Won’t be coming back until Nick Spencer is removed and apologies are issues. @marvelentertainment.

Yep. I haven’t bought a Marvel property, including movie tickets, since Nick Spencer made Cap Hydra. Not least because of his obnoxious reaction to our objections and his ongoing disdain for your readership, @marvelentertainment. He’s tanking two of your tentpoles, and in my case he’s lowering readership in multiple other titles as well. Clean your house. 

I just cancelled my subscriptions with my local comic book shop. I will only be buying independent, inclusive comics until @marvelentertainment removes Nick Spencer from any ongoing projects. 

Hydra-Cap was bad enough. Magneto supporting Hydra? That’s genuinely disgusting.
