Pinned bap

introduction (selfie ec) 

I guess it's finally time. I'm Sig! I'm a 32-year-old trans guy (he/him) from the Boston area, currently living in North Ostrobothnia, Finland, with my spouse @Jonas, two cats, a boa and a bunch of plants.

Right now I spend most of my time learning Finnish, taking care of my pets, gardening, baking, bicycling, and enjoying nature. I also draw, but that's been kinda on and off lately. I've also been known to play a vidja game but don't tell anyone.

sorry that a lot of my posts for at least the next 2 months are going to be "top surgery +++ [show more]" but you know how it is

absolutely luxuriating in the mild malaise i've got going after my second jab. I made a giant pot of soup using my own veggies yesterday and left it simmering overnight, it turned out amazing and now i am in my blanket cocoon with hot soup and videoed games.

re: sadie +++ (stitches in pics but they're healing well and not bothering her at all) 

I had to dab antibiotic ointment on her stitches every day for the first week, and even though I was also cleaning with saline every day (I’m so glad she trusts me enough to let me do all that ;_;) it wasn’t enough to keep the greasy ointment from building up until her face fur got real gross

(not that that stopped me from scratching her cone zones for her, which she quickly started demanding *all the time*)

now she actually looks a lot better because I just gone done grooming her little face with a paper towel and saline. I’m done having to touch her eyelids for the rest of cone time and once she realized I was really just grooming this time and not putting goop in her eyes, she started to really enjoy it 🥺

stitches out and cone off next week ❤️

gonna put this here too just in case anyone's keeping an eye on this toot, which got a lot of attention (and tysm for that too!):

we ended up raising just over half of the ~490 € surgery and thank you SO MUCH to those who donated... it's still gonna be a tight month but that's WAY more doable ❤️❤️

surgery went fine, there's a pic of poor sadie with her little cone and stitches on my timeline for anyone who wants to see where their donation went. it's going to be an unfun week of eye drops and rest for her but she's going to feel SO much better soon

cat, medical stuff, eye/eyelid stuff, stitches 

this poor creature... I hate that she had to go through this but I'm so glad it's over with, she's going to feel a lot better without fur irritating her corneas

crowdfunding for cat surgery 

I feel a little guilty calling attention to it at all, but @catgoat was kind enough to handle the crowdfunding for me, so yeah – Sadie my precious marshmallow has entropion in both eyes, meaning the lower lids are curling inward, which can lead to cornea damage and eventual blindness. It already caused an infection in one eye before the vet figured out what’s happening.

She’s going in for surgery next week and it’s more than we can afford right now. :( I’m so very thankful for any amount donated.

Details from previous boost just in case: "You can donate by sending to my cash app tag at $itsgoats or if you have PayPal or venmo I (@catgoat) can get my partners info for ya. We’ve got ~100 ish USD out of ~580 USD”

pet crowdfunding 

Hey pals I’m raising some USD to convert into euro for @Jonas and @Sig’s cat Sadie! Her eyelids are wonky and her eyelashes are scratching up her little corneas so she needs eyelid surgery! You can donate by sending to my cash app tag at $itsgoats or if you have PayPal or venmo I can get my partners info for ya. We’ve got ~100 ish USD out of ~580 USD (since the price is in euro)

Thank you!
