A Visit From a Furry Friend

I haven’t seen this little visitor for a while. He’s a beautiful ginger cat who used to belong to one of the neighbours down our street. I heardĀ that after he’d grown out of kittenhood they didn’t want him any more. Yeah, it makes me mad too šŸ™

But another kindhearted neighbour, a cat lady like myself, took him in. He seems well fed to me and seems to have put on quite a lot of weight. I’m so happy he has someone to take care of him.

Athena doesn’t like him hanging around in her garden, though. As an indoor cat, I know she gets stressed seeing him as she sees him as a threat. But he is such a sweet-natured kitty and so very friendly that I can’t just ignore him. I don’t make too much of a fuss over other cats, for Athena’s sake, but this little guy is so special, not to mention handsome, that I can’t resist snapping a pic of him when the opportunity arises.

He is always happy to be photographed, and I have taken many photos of him.

This one is from a while ago that I took with my Canon 600d.

This was snapped on my iPhone just the other day after I hadn’t seen him for a while. He greeted me with a meow on top of our garden shed (and I meowed backĀ  šŸ™‚ )

Pets Used in Experiments #BtC4A

Animal lovers don’t want to see animals suffer. Many prefer to look the other way. But ignoring it doesn’t make this disgusting horror disappear. Animals do suffer. All the time. All over the world.

And you know what? Ignorance isn’t bliss. Not for the poor animal.

stop testing on animals!

Stop testing on animals!

Picture yourself being terrified. Locked up. Confined to a lifetime of barbaric torture. I won’t describe the horror here because I can’t, but if you want to see the reality of animal testing goĀ HERE.Ā But be warned if you are easily upsetĀ  šŸ˜„

For some “animal lovers”, as long as it’s not an animal that is considered a pet that’s suffering, so what? Ā I’ve never understood that. All animals matter to me.

But I am focusing on cats and dogs here because the horrific truth is that these poor creatures are also being used in experiments and scientific research. Yes, it’s not just mice, rats, monkeys. Dogs and cats. Not that it makes no difference, as I said. To me, all animals are the same. Souls who want to live a decent life on this planet. Like us, they deserve a happy, healthy life. They feel. They love. They care for their children. They feel pain.

Some dogs and cats are specifically bred to be laboratory animals. This is a sickening fact that not many people are aware of.

For example, did you know that in the United States many dog pounds and shelters kill healthy dogs who havenā€™t been claimed orĀ haven’t found forever homes?

According to Cruelty-FreeĀ International, “some of these dogs’ bodies are supplied to commercial companies that then sell them on to colleges and universities for dissection classes.”

Things must change

We must stop burying our heads in the sand because it won’t go away. These animals need our help. To help these poor animals. we must all face reality and speak up.

And just look what can happen if we do. Ā Just watch this beautiful cat who was rescued from a lifetime of torture in a laboratory. How does it make you feel?

And here’s Shira and Jax taking their first steps to freedom, away from the horrors they were forced to endure as lab animals.

What can you do?
