I am posting this filtered for obvious reasons. (EDIT: Since made public.)

One of the things I've been dealing with recently is that I have been afraid to post my travel plans because I am afraid that Judah will take this opportunity to come to the house and hurt or kill my cats. (Nicky will be at a friend's house.)

Or steal stuff, but stuff can be replaced, and of course if the house is robbed the cops will look at him first, possibly before he even has the opportunity to fence stuff. Stuff can be replaced. Pets, not so much.

He has a history of animal abuse and a recent escalation and I am really scared.

And I hate that by the very nature of it all I can't talk about that.

So yes, I am excited and happy about new magazine, I did have a magical Readercon, it's just that I also have this vein of terror and dread and I feel totally silenced about it.

I am so so sorry.

If you ever want a house sitter while you're away, just let me know. I'm not the world's most badass person, but I can kick a guy in the nads and call the police, and having someone there at all could be a deterrent.

That would actually be handy. We have someone coming over to feed the cats this trip, but we'll be away again August 1-4.

I can do full-time, assuming you guys don't mind me crashing over at your place. I'm looking forward to meeting the two newer kitties!

I mean, you could do that this weekend if you want. We like and trust you. But yeah, totally August 1-4 even if you can't do this weekend?

Unfortunately I'm currently in Maine, and will be till Monday. Sorry, should have made that clearer. I can totally do August, but alas not this coming weekend. Limited Internet, too, hence late reply to this comment. :(

Yep, figured. But yay August!

And yeah, if you see his truck outside, just call the cops then and there, Watertown has a fast response time.

I'm assuming you have a photo of said truck? I don't think I know what it looks like, by memory.

Light blue metallic Ford F150 with a big dent in the driver-side door.

[hugs] I'm really sorry. I hope he has more sense than that, and it sucks that you have to pay the emotional price for his dumbassery. I'm glad that Readercon and the new magazine are good, though.

That's horrible. I mean, it's bad enough that you're afraid for you; that you have to be afraid for your pets too is just adding insult to injury.

I hope things work out.

I don't have much to add; I'm glad you have an offer of sitting.

I appreciate being trusted enough to be on these sorts of filters.

That's a horrible worry. I am wishing you all the best. *hugs*
