My Rascal cat just had more dental work done than I've had. Pretty sure it cost more than my dental work ever has as well. Worth it, yes. Am I crying over how much of my savings this is taking up, yes.

Rasza's was a much more reasonable price, because I had to decline 4 of the 6 extractions. WHY do cat mouths have to be so terrible?!

I really wish I could find a decent Autism Service Dog patch. After thinking about it for a while and working Logan for 6 months, I have decided that I'm okay with putting my specific disability on his vest, and would actually prefer it.

However, this is what the majority of them look like:







Just...EW!

Why is it so much asked to have a professional looking patch that simply says "Autism service dog"? I've contacted Creatve Clam about a custom patch (really just a variation on a current patch they offer, changing one word) and I have not heard back from them - not even to acknowledge they received my request.

I don't. It's purple and has puzzle pieces. I don't want a graphic at all, really, it wastes space and makes the text smaller. If I had a graphic, I'd just want a simple stop sign or something.

I really want this, but with "Autism" in place of "Working" (I don't understand "working" service dog...of course the dog's working, or it wouldn't be there!) and black text on white instead of white text on black.



Or this with "autism" added in front, and put this below my current round "do not pet/do not distract" patches



I need new patches and possibly a new vest (I intend to sew one myself) before school starts because it's looking a bit raggedy. I was hoping to get a new harness as well, but the turnaround time for the one I REALLY want/need is 8-12 months, so it'll be a while before I get the harness.
