Staying quiet doesn’t mean I’ve nothing to say. It means I don’t think you’re ready to hear my thoughts.
Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]
PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.
It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats.
Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.

Q:Okay, I feel so, sobad for having to ask this, but I really don't know. You talked about yourself being asexual, and sadly, no one in my school( even the teachers!!!) can't explain the term to me. For them it's only Hetero- or Homosexual. They can't explain asexuality or pansexuality to me. So maybe you can? I'm really sorry for having to ask this, and I feel like a huge arse. (Sorry if I'm bothering you with my question btw..) Lots of Love from a Europian fan of your work!
Don’t feel bad! You don’t know, yet you want to know, so you’re certainly not a huge arse. It’s not your fault society doesn’t make that information easily available. I’m not actually “out” anywhere but on the internet, since coming out would require a powerpoint presentation to get many to even accept it as a real and valid sexual orientation. I didn’t even knew about it myself until I was and adult (but my teenage years would have been so much easier if I had known back then that asexuality was a thing….)
But to answer your question, here’s a simple breakdown of sexualities (just know I’m hardly an expert):
Heterosexualy: being sexually attracted to a different gender (I’m sure we’re all familiar with that one)
Homosexuality: being sexually attracted to the same gender (again, this is a familiar one)
Bisexuality: being sexually attracted to two different genders (not to be confused with not being able to make up your mind)
Pansexuality: being sexually attracted to every gender. Pansexuality is so very little understood in great part because gender itself is poorly understood (it’s a bit more complex than male/female) so many don’t see what’s the difference with bisexuality.
Asexuality: not being sexually attracted to any gender (this isn’t the same as not having a libido).
Monosexuality: being sexualy attracted to only one gender. Someone who’s hetero- or homosexual is monosexual (it’s likely that if you’re monosexual, you’ll never need to use that word)
Sexual orientation isn’t the same as sexual behavior, so a straight guy could have sex with another guy because he’s bored/curious/horny without this invalidating his sexuality. Some asexual people do have sex. They’re still asexual.
Another thing (and sorry this is getting kind of long) romantic orientation is not the same as sexual orientation and doesn’t necessarily match. Someone can be straight but also romantically attracted to people of the same gender (but this is likely to not be acknowledged, not out of denial but simply because many don’t realize this is a possibility). This is mostly relevant to asexual people, not all of whom are also aromantic (but don’t get the option of dating someone they’re sexually attracted to).
This is hardly everything there is to know on the subject, but it’s a start?

I’m finally giving in
It only took my English prof using Once Upon A time as a legitimate class assignment in my Film and Lit course to watch the damn show, but I’m giving in xD
I’m getting off line to watch the first season. I may or may not be coherent tomorrow.
