Hi! I'm Emily and I make a comic called Blitz Phoenix, which is about a boy who becomes a guinea pig in his mad-scientist mother's experiments and gets superpowers (which he's really bad at using) and a brain AI, that he never gets along with.
[CW for the comic since the mom is abusive & dogs do get hurt/killed (they're also being experimented on, etc)]
My main masto is @SunScales@mastodon.art, but that's kinda private so I wanted a more public account for talking comics!
it's a lot of work to get her to use that one tbh, lots of... warming up to it
so i took a hair tie, a loose feather, and one of her mouse toys. tied the feather to the mouse, attached to a stick
i guess she just likes feathers
(that's her scratching post if it isn't clear, it's shaped like a cactus)
I found a new stick toy I hadn't opened yet in the closet
took some work, lots of me running around the apartment while she sauntered behind, but she's finally interested in it
has a squeaky mouse on the string and a feather on the tip of the stick
mia has already forgotten that she lost the toy and is laying next to the closet, waiting for me to get it out
i have... bad news
also having a "i can't breathe" sort of long covid day so not going to spend a lot of time looking
please fish it out yourself, child
i tried to boop her nose and it worked
but then i tried again and she put her paw on my hand
flew too close to the sun
I was going to say something else with this but I forgot what it was
explaining to her that she can't play AND eat at the same time, like she's a child
she's trying very hard not to bite me because she knows it's bad but also... it would be fun
so she's nibbling on my hand with just her lips and it's very weird and funny
recently had the thought "why not try telling my brain to just... close my mouth when I lay down" since that's how you activate lucid dreaming
and uh. worked surprisingly well, lol. not waking up with a dry mouth or weird gunk on my teeth anymore.
