A liberal-leaning independent with a BS in Psychology and Certificate in Animal Behavior from Indiana University (Psychology degree focused mostly on non-human animals) and an AS Degree in Veterinary Technology. I work as a Certified Veterinary Technician and I volunteer as a feline behavior consultant for a local shelter. I am also a proud member of The Bloggess Tribe (thebloggess.com) thanks to a nice spice of anxiety and depression added to my make-up and my ability to be Furiously Happy on my upswings. (Pretty sure the following cartoon is an accurate depiction of how I was made)
