like Grandma’s Dead: Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals, Why Is Daddy in a Dress? Asking Awkward Questions with Baby Animals, and Maybe Your Leg Will Grow Back!: Looking on the Bright Side with Baby Animals, this is a book that pairs pictures of cutiepie animals with a hearty gutpunch of text


for maximum… humor?

unlike those other books, which are postcards you can send to your friends,

okay, to your friends before time makes them enemies, this book is just for you.

i feel seen.

now, a healthy, stable person will flip through this book and think, “cute! animals!”

while iiii look at this book and think, “o no! even the animals know i suck!”

can a book legally be shelved in the humor section if you feel worse after reading it?

especially if one of the little monsters looks like a less-beautiful version of the little heartmonster you miss each and every day?

tell me about it, cat…

it’s a book that, like life, is filled with upsetting facts

hard truths

true facts

tough love

love that should be tougher

a dollop of melodramatic depression-day insights

and some pretty good photography

even if some of the images are a little too on the (wet, healthy) nose

or a bit too close to home

in conclusion

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
