So shadesong  did this post a little while ago, and I've seen a couple others mirror it, as viralness in the name of the public good is always worthy. I want to do the same, since, well, there are kind of a lot of you out there reading this.

So, please do not be shy. You rarely get what you need without asking for it.

What do you need?

Not "What do you want?" Which is an entirely different question. But what do you need? Are you looking for an apartment, a job, a ride to somewhere, assistance with something? Comment here, and maybe I or one of my readers can help you! The internet makes miracles, we all know it. Read the comments, and see if there's something you can offer.

It kind of kills me to say this... but it looks like I may need a home for one of my catboys. He is an orange ball of energy that needs much more personal attention than I can give him with my schedule right now, and that is only going to get worse. He's taken to the kind of acting out that's not medical... it's just annoyance at my absence, and the other catboy isn't enough company for him. Further, my SO is profoundly allergic-- he can mostly handle one, but not two.

So I dunno. If someone in NC-- or really, for someone who really wanted to be a devoted catparent, the south at large-- has the time, dedication, and energy to care for a superloving cat who is about as affectionate as a puppy dog... lemme know.

Does he have any medical issues? How does he typically act and how does he act out?

I'm asking more for information. I do think I could handle him if the problem was just energy but I do live with other people and I'll need to fly everything by them first, especially if he's a very needy cat. I do live in NC though so I can try to talk to some neighbors and see if they might be interested as well.

Peeing, mostly. He's taken to, if I am not there, peeing on things that he oughn't. Other than that he's a pretty typical 3 year old-- he tears around super fast and occaionally runs into things. He does not have any urinary tract issues, as far as I know-- it is about time for his next checkup, but he's had a clean bill of health thusfar.

Yeah, I know. About as bad as it gets.>
