strxwberry cat 🌸

we love cats.

this has been a near constant of our lives. we have always loved cats, for almost as far back as we can remember (or as i like to say, the beginning of the time and the universe).
we wanted to be a cat, as well. we can't remember what we thought about being a cat, just that we wanted to be a cat.
today, being a cat is something some system members have incorporated into their gender, and is really important to them ❤️

we have a cat allergy

we are allergic to the fur haired cats carry on their body. this means that a well intentioned kitty coming to rub against us will cause our body a little bit of distress! it makes our eyes feel itchy and water, and sneeze a lot.

we realised this when we were concerned that we were ill when staying with a friend. We didn't want to make them or them family sick! after some thought, we realised that, we don't feel sick, and we don't always have sneezing or itchy eyes. we considered what may be causing this, and realised it had to be the cats! it always happened around cats historically, and, only when we were inside the apartment, where our friend's cats lived.

We wish someone told us what a cat allergy was, we didn't know the fur was what caused them, just assumed they didn't apply to us.



our friends

the rest of this page is dedicated to sharing pictures of some of the cat friends we've made, including some images, and descriptions!

Panko

This is panko, a happy orange cat that eats a lot.
Panko loves us! they regularly sleep with us and walk on us and come to cuddle with us. When we're moving around, they come to see us less, and sometimes try to stay away. We think our sounds and movements may be triggering for them, so we try to be calm and predictable for them :)

Pi

Pi is a friend of panko. Pi likes to play and is a lot more energetic than panko! We don't play much, so we spend less time pi.

Molly

We met molly outside on a walk one day, and ever since, we see them regularly.
Molly likes going on adventures near their home, especially if they get to go with us! One time, they climbed out of a steep escarpment for a frozen river, just because they noticed we were walking by! We want to meet the people who house molly, and see if we could spend time to play with them sometime.

Anecdotally, molly hates capitalism.
