Kat Suricata

miscellaneous human being

Hello! My name is Kat Suricata (pronounced ser·ih·KOT·ah)—better known online as Meerkat—I use she/her pronouns, and I’m a creative writer with dreams of becoming a self-sustaining published author. If you buy into personality metrics, I’m an INTP/5w4/LII; if you don’t, you’re probably smarter than I am. Congratulations.

I have a short fiction writing blog over at creative/artifice, and though I’m not much for nonfiction, I did write a semi-successful journalistic piece about America’s broken opioid prescribing guidelines. I’m also currently working as lead writer on a tabletop RPG not yet revealed to the public (though it’s the pet project of a friend of mine, so I essentially gave the title to myself). In no particular order, other interests include: politics, music, tabletop/video gaming, tea, medicine, privacy/security, and the pursuit of learning.

In terms of beliefs, I’m a democratic socialist, Spiritualist, Discordian, and libertarian (metaphysically, not economically). I’m also quite ill, to the point of disability: I have avoidant personality disorder and major depressive disorder, I’m in remission for a severe blood disease that affects about 1 in 500,000 people—and a potentially-lethal comorbidity—and I have hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, amongst other conditions.

You can support me on Ko-fi, BuyMeACoffee, or Cash.me, if you’d like.
