How to Make Living with a Cat More Enjoyable When One Family Member is Allergic to Them – Katzenworld

For a cat lover, there is nothing better than having a furry feline as your companion in your home, but for those who have a cat allergy in the household, it may not be such a fabulous match. For them, the mere sight of a cat can be enough to make them sneeze, itch, and […]

Petition: Reveal the identity of the rapist of five adopted kittens!

sosvox.org

A man sexually abused five kittens of a few months that he had adopted from several families. This happened in Salta, and what I want to ask is that they reveal the identity of the rapist, since he could ask other kittens for adoption to continue violating them. We will not tolerate these things, these patients have to be in jail.

Today are kittens and tomorrow our children, who guarantees that this subject does not continue doing it? We can not give an animal to anyone, because later these degenerates appear and these things happen, that is my complaint with the people who gave them up for adoption. But, who can think that this degenerate was going to rape them.

Please, let the identity of this rapist be known and that Justice for once act in favor of the animals and the example with this degenerate, and end up in jail.

He killed a cat because it bothered his cat

sosvox.org

This man is called Joel Anzorena, he works in the Judicial Power, he is a lawyer, and he lives in Alimentacion neighborhood of the city of Guaymallén, and he killed a cat because it bothered his cat. This guy shot the cat and since he did not kill him, he kicked him until he finally killed him. A neighbor reproached him for the fact and told him that what he had done was fine.

These people work for our Justice, and then we ask ourselves why when we want to report cases of animal abuse they do not want to listen to us. These sadists do not have to work in Justice and they have to go to jail, there is no other place for them.

I ask for a harsh punishment for this person, who does not work anymore for the State in the Judiciary, and who also goes to jail for animal abuse. There are Laws, and this person as a lawyer should know.

They believe that they are above the Law, that they learn that they can not do what they want!

This campaign is trending!
$12,716 of $30,000 goal Raised by 195 people in 9 days

Created November 11, 2018

Friends and supporters , once again I’ll be entering the burn zone to effect fire cat rescues. I spent well over 800 hours rescuing fire cats in the Tubbs Fire of Sonoma County and the Carr Fire of Shasta County.
This time I’ll be self deploying to the Camp Fire in Butte County. There are thousands of missing, displaced and burned animals(most of them cats). I am requesting some help to purchase equipment(trail cams, batteries ), food for my bait stations, veterinary donations, supplies and fuel for the trips back and forth. Anything helps. This is a long haul effort and I’ll be traveling to Butte County as often as twice a week(about 400 miles round trip)to rescue fire cats and to train volunteers and families on how to find their missing fire pets.
This is about the animals and their families. Bringing a lost pet back to these folks who’ve lost everything brings them back from the darkness and gives them hope. I witnessed this over and again when I reunited many fire cats with their families. I do not do this for a living bit out of love and compassion. Please check my fb page for regular reports and updates..

Kleptomaniac Cat Won’t Stop Stealing Vancouver Neighbors’ Stuff

Kleptomaniac Cat Won’t Stop Stealing Vancouver Neighbors’ Stuff
Stephen Messenger
8-10 minutes

This is Bella — a long-haired tabby cat with a very sweet and affectionate spirit. For the past 10 years, Bella has been a delightful companion to her owner, Shawn Bell, simply by being her loving self.

Not long ago, however, she began to reveal one not-so-positive aspect of her feline personality.
Shawn R. Bell

Turns out, Bella’s a thief.
Shawn R. Bell

Bella’s foray into a life of crime seemed to have begun spontaneously last summer. One day, much to Bell’s surprise, he noticed his cat arriving to their home in Vancouver, Canada, carrying a sock. The next day, she brought home another. The day after that, yet more socks.

On the fourth day, Bella came in carrying a child’s drawing, apparently just to mix things up a bit.

Here’s a photo of the cat’s first haul:

Shawn R. Bell

Where those items had come from was anyone’s guess, though Bell was sure of one thing: They weren’t his. Bella had presumably stolen them while out on her evening prowls. And she didn’t stop there.

That summer, Bell filled half a garbage bag with purloined clothes. But in recent months, Bella’s thieving ways have only increased.
Shawn R. Bell

“She used to just come home with one piece of clothing per night,” Bell told The Dodo. “Now she is coming home with two or three a night — or more.”

And all those stolen clothes have been really piling up.

Shawn R. Bell

Bell has posted signs around his apartment building in hopes of reuniting the garments with their rightful owners, but to no avail.

He’s been piling them up on a chair outside his place, just in case someone recognizes their stuff.
Shawn R. Bell

The whole thing has Bell feeling sorta guilty — and a little uncomfortable.

“It sucks to have to keep buying clothes if they keep going missing,” he said. “Then there is the issue of the undergarments and her starting to make me look a bit weird.”

That’s right. Bella’s been stealing people’s unmentionables, too.

Shawn R. Bell

Bell hopes that, as word spreads about his cat’s ill-gotten gains, the person or persons Bella has been stealing from will come forward to reclaim their laundry.

The cat, meanwhile, has yet to see the error in her saddling her owner with stolen goods.

“I think she’s proud of herself,” Bell said. “But she’s not picking the right size or the right gender for me.”

Still, Bell admits he adores Bella regardless.
Shawn R. Bell

“She’s my girl no matter how bad her behavior is,” Bell said. “I guess she has my unconditional love, even though she’s a kleptomaniac.”

Petition: Cat Dissection Has No Place in Our Schools

thepetitionsite.com

by: Care2 Team
recipient: United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos

103,855 SUPPORTERS – 110,000 GOAL

This school year, millions of animals will be dissected in high schools across the U.S. — and many of them will be cats.

Yes, that’s right. Precious felines, who many of us love and care for as pets, are one of the most commonly dissected animals in schools.

Please sign this petition demanding an end to cat dissection in U.S. schools now.

Animal dissection is a cruel practice that has no place in our schools. According to PETA investigations into biological supply companies that provide schools with animals for dissection, animals experience all kinds of horrifying abuse before they are killed and sold to schools. Specifically, cats were found to be embalmed before they had actually any chance of life. In other cases, cats were taken from shelters, pet stores, and the streets, ripped away from any chance at a happy life.

The cruel practice isn’t just bad for cats; it’s bad for kids and teaches them to have a callousness towards life. Various leaked videos show kids playing with mutilated animal bodies during dissection lessons, including high schoolers playing jump rope with a cat intestines and dancing with cat bodies. Given the notorious link that exists between animal cruelty and violent behavior, it’s unconscionable that we allow kids to dissect these amazing, intelligent creatures.

Especially considering the fact that the dissection of any animal is archaic and downright unnecessary. From 3-D models to digital simulation programs, there are a host of dissection alternatives available that schools can and should embrace.

Times have changed, and it’s time we make our voices heard. Sign this petition and let’s end the disgusting practice of cat dissection in schools now.more
