Kat Suricata

miscellaneous human being

Hello! My name is Kat Suricata (pronounced ser·ih·KOT·ah), though I’m better known online as Meerkat, 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 personal blog and a writing blog, and though I’m not much for nonfiction, I did write something about America’s broken opioid prescribing guidelines and make an alternative viewing order for Steven Universe. In no particular order, other interests include: politics, music, tabletop/video gaming, loose leaf tea, medicine, privacy/security, and the pursuit of learning.

In terms of beliefs, I’m a democratic socialist, Spiritualist, 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 (and its own potentially-lethal comorbidity), amongst other conditions.

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