July 29th is International Tiger Day! Rapidly losing natural habitats, tigers face a precarious future. International Tiger Day was initiated to raise awareness about tiger conservation and the need for global responses to protecting natural habitats of these big kittehs.
The image is from The Wonders of the Animal Kingdom (1830) by Robert Huish, who, incidentally, was not very highly regarded in his time. In a stinging review of his book, The Late Voyage of Captain Sir John Ross, R.N. to the Arctic Regions…, the Quarterly Review (July 1835), called him “one of those industrious but unscrupulous scribblers know as booksellers’ hacks.” Unscrupulous as he may be, we still think the illustrations in the Wonders of the Animal Kingdom are worth perusing, even if the first few lines of the introduction desperately need an editor.

Anonymous asked: Mormor headcanon: Jim hates when Sebastian touches his hair since he has been using ages to style it. The only time Seb's allowed to ruffle it and comb his fingers through it is after Jim has taken a bath, his dark strands all damp and smooth and free of hair products.

uncaughtcriminal:

Imagine tho Jim lying back against Sebastian in the bath, Seb stroking his hair till he falls asleep *u*

I always imagine Seb to be like a grumpy old man stuck in a hot-ass body most of the time. Like he hardly outwardly complains (unless Jim is taking the piss with his orders, which is often) but he just makes annoyed little “ugh” and “humpf” and sighing noises.

"Sebastian fetch my black Louis Vuitton shoes"

"ugh fine, boss."

"Seb you stink of blood, go take a shower"

*sigh*

Grumpy!Seb uwu
