Dealing with this summer's round of unanticipated vet bills (we expected the usual kitten expenses...we did not expect severe parasite infestation, Oisín developing an eye problem, or having to change vets in the middle of all of it) wiped our bank account. Now we're staring at Púca needing to have ultrasounds and likely invasive surgery to neuter him, due to some medical issues related to his being a runt. This goal goes toward covering medical costs for him and Bodach.
Hello! I'm Melissa (also known as The River's Wayward Daughter and Auntie Yaga), and I'm a mixed media artist, teller of tales, and wanderer. I mostly write stories of roadside gods and genius loci found along my travels, apocryphal folklore, curious objects and artifacts, and of life seen through a lens of myth and folklore. Your support goes to keeping the lights on, the bills paid, and making sure that the small colony of voidling cats have enough food so that they don't decide that the humans are food.
