Hey, thank you for checking out our e-magazine. Here are the interesting reads that you shouldn’t miss out in GESTALT (Volume 1 | Issue 3 | Feb’18) :
For a particular portion of the human population, the Internet (or that’s maybe just Tumblr in particular) probably equates an infinite reservoir of cat related media. Googling “c-a-t” and scrolling through the plethora of feline images might just be enough to make a suicidal person feeling warm and fuzzy inside.
