Introduction

This is the post excerpt.

My name is Alexandra Mars. If you guessed it, I am an inspiring author pursuing my goal to become published. My friends, call me, Alex, and welcome to my blog. I write fantasy and science fiction because I find that genre fascinating to me, for there are so many paths a writer can take in his/her world.

I have been creating stories my whole life when I was a child, my Barbie dolls and My Little Ponies all had their own personalities. In middle school I discovered my creative writing skills, and I have remained on this path ever since. The journey to arrive at this point hasn’t been easy for me, and at times been very arduous. Now, I see excellent things in my future, and I hope you and I can take the next stage of this wonderful journey together.

You’re probably wondering what’s the next stage, I’ll tell you, my friend. In 2017 I will release my debut saga here on my site. I am excited!

In the meantime, I will be discussing many topics on writing and my life in my blog.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you continue to follow my blog.

The past few days I have been dealing with a lingering migraine wouldn’t go away. I couldn’t stare at a screen for a long period of time, until yesterday.

I am looking forward to doing some major writing and reading this weekend. Perhaps, the Golden Shadow will curl up on my bed while I read. He has his favorite spots for sleeping and my bed on his top three list.

Yesterday, I accomplished one of my writing goals for February. The novel I’ve been reworking, now, has an ending. So, I can focus on the middle and those events.

I am still working on my short story. While I wrote two scenes, a new minor character emerged. Now, I am pondering on different scenarios in the story. This new character needs a name, but I’m not too worried about it.

My goal is to have the first section of the story done by the end of February. I hope. A story is developing, it can change from the outline. That makes it interesting for me to see how events happened and how it will affect the characters. When the game changers events happen that when all the drama and chaos comes. This is why I enjoy writing my first drafts of my stories.

Spooky Lane

The scorching Hades’ vapors rose throughout the concrete jungle of countless miles of shabby homes, and boarded-up buildings. At the corner, filled with vulgar men and teenagers displaying their herd mentality: sexual gestures, hooting, and hollering to the streetwalkers. The prostitutes moved on, taking their cue; I did too.

Droplets of sweat dripped on my back as I strolled. My mother’s voice nagged at me, wearing Daisy Dukes, a short tight top, and my dirty white tennis shoes. For I was proud of my slender physique and my plump breasts.

But I couldn’t change my clothes. My boyfriend and I had a violent argument when his unstoppable wrath erupted. That’s when I scrammed from our apartment. On my way out, I snatched my purse.

I spotted trouble. Piercing eyes generated a frigid chill, seizing my spine. A shadowy figure emerged a half block away. Creepiness rushed into my skin forming goosebumps. I wished I hadn’t sold my pistol. My boyfriend had persuaded me; I regretted that decision.

Are pets considered property?

I provide my kitty food, water, a clean litter box, heat, security, love, and cat toys. If anything would happen to my beloved kitty, I would be truly upset. My cat is family.

But the law has a different view about pets, and that is determined by what state, county, and city where the owner’s residence is located at.

I recently read about an incident involving a rescue group who was contacted about a missing cat that escaped from their foster home over a year ago. The information on the chip stated the cat belonged to the rescue, and a veterinarian’s employee contacted them. But, the veterinarian believed the animal was property to the person who paid the bill and refused to provide the rescue with any information about the founder and the animal. The rescue wanted the founder to fill out adoption papers to update the chip’s information.

From my understanding, the microchip’s purpose is to reunite the pet with its rightful owner.

This incident has me worried about my kitty who has a microchip implant. If my kitty somehow escaped from my house and got lost. A veterinarian can decide a person who found my kitty, provide better care than with me?

Those it is unlikely that would happen.

Most veterinarians have procedures for found pets. (If you’re unsure if a veterinarian has such a protocol just ask.)

An animal is found with a microchip, the owner must have time to decide whether they want the animal or relinquish ownership.

The incident with the veterinarian has me concerned about the laws and the procedures to reunite owners with their pets. I hope this is a onetime incident and not an everyday occurrence in the veterinarian world.
