    They have now been to a vet and have been checked over. The vet said they are happy healthy little kittens. They do not even realize their own handicap. The vet did explain that there are surgeries that can help these two babies to correct the problems with their limbs.

    We will need to raise the money for the basic costs for their shots, and the surgeries. The goal will be set at a total of $1000 which will take care of the costs for both kittens! So please spread the word and lets see how many people we can get to help out! There is no minimum donation, so please any amount you can donate will mean these two get help at a better life. We have homes lined up for these little guys already, we just want to help to afford the care they need for these special little kittens.

    We have a vet appointment for them next Wednesday. They will be looked over and hopefully we can get an idea of what needs to be done going forward. The bracings are off now, at this point we are just going to wait until after the vet appointment to hopefully learn more. Here are some more photos of the two adorable buggers, for now we’re calling them Runtie and Grey.

    I am reaching out to people who can hopefully help more than I can. My sister’s cat recently had 2 kittens. They were both born with twisted limbs. One is worse off than the other. I went to inspect them myself today for the first time and I did my best to try and brace the limbs and get them pointing in the right direction. I can tell by looking at them that they are going to need more help than she or I can give. They do not appear to be in pain and squirm around like little seals on their folded legs. I want to try and raise money so she can take them to the vet and get their limbs professionally corrected. They are absolutely adorable little creatures and are so full of love. I don’t want to see them get put to sleep because of their handicap. So I am asking anyone out there if you can spare it, to make any donation you can.

     

    These are the two kitties. I have done some research and it seems their problem can be corrected with patience, time, and money. I want to help her with all I can, I have very little free time, the patience I have only can go so far, and unfortunately I do not have the funds to help her myself. So I am asking for advise and donations from anyone who can spare it. Please feel free to leave me any info you can, we have done some research but that can only get you so far. I have added a donation button on the left side for you to donate with. All money donated there will go to helping these little guys.

    Thank you all.

    I am a LARPer, a lot of people don’t actually even know what that is. Most of the gaming community tends to consider us the outcasts of the nerd crew. I just wanted to write a bit about how the life of a LARPer really is. First of all LARP stands for Live Action RolePlaying, the very simplified version is that you get dressed up and run around in the woods for a weekend getting to pretend to be someone else while you slay monsters and rescue people. Sounds like little kid stuff right? Well sure it is, how much fun did you have when you were a child and you ran around the house trying to beat your sibling with a stick or the vacuum pipe? Well this is a bit safer than that!

    LARP is becoming a larger and larger community in the USA it’s already huge in the UK. People come together and work as a family to support everyone else. I have never met so many awesome people in my life as I have since I started this life changing hobby 10 years ago. I met my fiancee at it and most of my good friends too. It is the largest family you can ever make, imagine going to any state and knowing there are people you know there?

    LARPing gives you a chance to get away from your regular 9 to 5 everyday life. It lets you walk out on a field and be someone else. It gives you the freedom to forget who you are just for a little while. You walk out there no longer as John the guy at the office, but as Drogin the orc! Slayer of all things fuzzy! Or what ever crazy player you make; and you are them for the weekend, you think as them, you talk as them, you fight as them, laugh, cry, and have fun. You get to step outside yourself and release your inner child. That kid inside us all that wants to run around in the grass and play with swords and wear armor.

    I have met such a variety of people in this community as well. I have met teachers, physical therapists, big business managers, a reverend, artists, and insurance analysts;  just to name a few. I have met people of all ages, from as young as 12 to old enough that they are retired. I call them all friends, even some family. I cannot say enough how much the community of people involved in this are so awesome. I mean imagine going somewhere you have never met anyone before and when you get there you know you are going to have lots of things in common with this group already?

    Here is a 10 minute video that was put together at one of our games, the people that came to film this had never played before but found that they want to come back.

    I will end it with that. Thank you for reading! Keep being nerdy!
