DAHLIA WILL BE ADOPTED! Thanks to a very kind redditor, Dahlia will be given a second chance at life, and will be picked up tomorrow. Thank you everyone for your empathy & community -- I am floored.
Me and a few others are willing to help with costs, so I'll keep you posted on that front.
Thank you x a million! <3

🔥🆘Still No Leads‼️ 🆘🔥She is on Euth list TODAY but we have been given until tomorrow for a plan for sweet Dahlia🆘🔥
🆘 ‼️EXTREMELY URGENT‼️🆘 🔥NEEDS OUT ASAP🔥 Dahlia is a sweet spayed female, tortie-dil Domestic Shorthair, about 10 years old. She has been at the shelter since Apr 14 and was owner surrender. She has a mass in bladder seen on ultrasound (possible tumor). Owner said she slowed down and is eating and drinking less. Urinalysis showed blood and protein in urine (likely due to inflammation). Bloodwork unremarkable. She needs a rescue or adopter to step up for her ASAP! She has been on the euth list for 2 days. Shelter staff would appreciate help with placement. #A1209690
I’ve seen this a 000 times both here and YT and every media out there where fans say Freya and Dahlia had 1000 years knowledge and experience but this is very very very far from the truth because both of them were asleep for 99% of that time, only allowed to walk the earth for 1 year each century which is 10 years out of 1000 years. 1%. This means after they’d both fell under the Slumber spell they’d have had only 10 years experience and knowledge after and I doubt Freya spent her time studying magic while trying to run away from Dahlia. Esther even had more magical knowledge (and experience) than Dahlia (and Freya) because she was “awake” as a spirit in the Other Side, watching the world go by and communicating with other witch spirits there for 1000 years. What Dahlia had was much much more power than Esther which greatly greatly made up for her lesser knowledge.
She was the first antagonist on the show that really made the Mikaelsons sweat, she had well written motivations and personality, and her death scene with Esther was one of the best and most moving moments on TO.
So evil? what caused her to become such a awful human being?
I sowed a whole pack of pom-pom dahlia seeds. There were about 50 in the pack and after a few failures and giving a few away I'm left with about 40.
Almost all of them look like the dahlia on the left in the picture below, however there's just one that is more compact than the rest and has a flower bud already! It's a lot more compact than all the others and is really sturdy - when the leaves of the others are blowing in the wind, this one doesn't even move. It seems really uniform too, like not a single leaf is out of place.
Looking forward to seeing what it grows into. If anyone has any ideas as to what it might be please let me know. Thanks.
