I just found out that my beloved cat is dying. She has a malignant tumour and the cancer sadly has spread.

I feel depressed and helpless, so I’ve been spending as much time as I can with her.

One thing that has made me happy and kept my mind in a better place is binge-watching some of Simon’s Cat. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s an animation drawn and ‘voiced’ by Simon Tofield, a life-long lover of cats (he owns multiple) who illustrates the little amusing antics and struggles of owning a cat, mainly through the main character, Simon’s Cat.

One of my favourite videos is actually the first colourised video, Off To The Vet. So relatable but pure and good, and definitely something I need right now.

It also has that “serial killer capital” label hanging around its head that even Dexter Morgan himself, Michael C. Hall, shot a promo stating it.

A place can’t be boring and an (alleged) serial killer paradise though, can it? Only if it’s so boring that’s why people are going bananas and offing each other.

 

 

Adelaide south

Such a beautiful place to strangle someone.

 

I’ve been a few times to Adelaide and come back with different stories and experiences, and while my time there was only fleeting, I hope that if you do find yourself in The City Of Churches that my handy guide will help you around.
