Bookmarked Tattoos Etsy shop | Instagram

Fun place to shop for bookish temporary tattoos from series like HP, Shadowhunters, Illuminae, ACOTAR and custom tattoos to name just a few. I believe she also ships worldwide.

My cat Figment had to have dental surgery this week (he’s fine – 2 extractions and some strong pain meds - thanks for all the well wishes!) and my vet has cat/dog factoids in the exam rooms. This one made me laugh.

”Basically, cats have a lower social IQ than dogs but can solve more difficult cognitive problems when they feel like it.”

It’s the “when they feel like it” that got me. So true lol

Apparently my yard is becoming a haven for wildlife. We’ve always had the rabbits – but they are starting to give zero fucks about the dogs and seem to be openly mocking them at this point lol But the wild turkey is new. We also nearly stepped on a rattlesnake on our walk with Fonzi. I did NOT stop to take a picture of it!

  5. I would have a meltdown if I almost stepped on a rattlesnake. It kind of freaks me out to think it happened to you. I enjoyed your list!

    1. My husband and dog were about 6 inches away and I stopped them in time. I'm glad for once I didn't freak out and calmly stopped them lol

  7. I'm glad Figment is doing okay, and omg "when they feel like it." SO True!

    Ahh!! I hate snakes. The rabbits are cute though; I see those around me too. I sometimes see deer but not as often as when I was younger. :)

    1. Yeah - I'm a wreck. And he has elevated liver enzymes so it was little risky but he did fine.

  9. Bookish tattoos would be cool, especially an Illuminae one. I have rabbits in my yard too, and YES- they act like they own the place. Geez. A rattlesnake... yikes. Glad that didn't turn ugly...

  11. I haven't had temporary tattoos since I was kid but bookish ones! I am so tempted. And that post is brilliant it's always good to know a few extra tools. Glad to hear your cat's ok and that quote is insanely accurate.
