"My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them."

"When I got my first cat, it changed me. There is something about holding a cat that makes your anger melt away. And if someone does something that upsets me—I have to remember my cat. I can’t keep my cat if I get into trouble.”
"I asked if Major Cabanaw had concerns for the safety of the cats. “Of course, we always want to ensure the safety of the cats, and the staff is great about keeping an eye out for them. But mostly, it’s the offenders keeping them safe. I have never once seen an offender kill his own cat. We screen them to be sure they have no history of animal abuse. But I’ll tell you this, there was a guy killed in here because he had spit soda pop onto someone else’s cat.”"

When I first saw Mega Alakazam, I didn’t know why he needed so many spoons. It all makes sense now.
"I do not need someone to complete me
but if you wanted to
we could walk next to each other
into whatever is coming next."
Housing the Homeless Reduces Healthcare Costs and Arrests
A new study conducted by the University of North Carolina Charlotte shows that providing housing first reduces the overall cost of homelessness.
The study used Moore Place, a Charlotte apartment complex that serves as home to 85 chronically homeless adults, as its subject. In its first year, Moore Place tenants saved $1.8M in health care costs, with 447 fewer emergency room visits.
