KITTY IS MY BLACK CAT

We had a rough start at the beginning.

Almost thought we’d give her away.

She was really driving us insane and was tearing the house up.

Nowadays, it’s a different story.

She’s still her own “person” but she’s here to stay.

Because of superstitious beliefs in some cultures, black cats are sometimes associated with bad luck and, sadly, are more likely to be put to sleep or wait a long time to be adopted from shelters.

Black Cat Appreciation Day was launched to show people that a black cat could be the perfect cat for them, and help raise awareness about black cats in general.

CAPTIVE FOR TOO LONG

Lolita needs your help.

Boycott ALL Palace Enterainment parks til she is retired!

#ShutDownPalace

I remember, approximately 25 years ago, I traveled to Miami Florida.

I was visiting friends.

One of the attractions that we wento to was the Miamiseaquarium.

The main event: Lolita!

At the time I was uneducated about the plight of this beautiful, sentient being.

As I’ve learned in recent years, it’s time to free this amazing animal.

To this day, it’s been 44 years that Lolita has been help captive in was is equivalent to a bath tub for an animal her size.

So many years have passed and she is still there.

Two years ago, I posted information about her.

The location where she lives is beyond inadequate for her.

Please, let’s join this movement.

It’s time!

Lolita has suffered in the same barren tank at the Miami Seaquarium for 44 years. She lives a solitary life, performing in depressing daily shows for tourists.

Her tank is the smallest for an Orca in North America, and despite being in violation of the Animal Welfare Act, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has yet to acknowledge these glaring discrepancies.

The purpose of the Shut Down Palace campaign is to urge the retirement of Lolita the orca from the Miami Seaquarium, owned by Palace Entertainment.

By boycotting, protesting and raising awareness we hope one day Lolita will see her home waters again ….

KARMA …. “to ALL animal abusers” …. !!

STATISTICS AND FACTS

Animal Cruelty Facts and Statistics

The shocking number of cruelty cases reported daily on television, on the Internet and in newspapers is only the tip of the iceberg. Most cases are never reported, and most animal suffering goes unrecognized and unabated.

Unlike violent crimes against people, information on reported cases of animal abuse have not been compiled by state and federal agencies, making it difficult to calculate the prevalence or trends in these crimes.

Who abuses animals
Cruelty and neglect cross socio-economic boundaries, and media reports suggest that animal abuse is common in both rural and urban areas.

Most common victims
The animals whose abuse is most often reported are dogs, cats, horses and livestock. Based on numbers from pet-abuse.com, of 1,880 cruelty cases reported in the media in 2007

Organized cruelty
Dogfighting, cockfighting and other forms of organized animal cruelty go hand in hand with other crimes.

Domestic violence, child abuse and animal cruelty
Data on domestic violence and child abuse cases reveal that a staggering number of animals are victimized by abusive parents or partners each year.

“Bandit”: Freedom after Lifetime in Chains”!!


Bandit

~~January 7, 2016~~ 

FREEDOM FOR BANDIT

Bull Does Freedom Dance After Lifetime In Chains

By Christian Cotroneo

January 6, 2016

Do chained bulls dream of rolling freely in green pastures?

How else do you explain how an animal, who has spent his whole life in chains, could take so ferociously to freedom?

In a video posted to YouTube by Austrian animal sanctuary Gut Aiderbichl, a bull named Bandit appears to have been waiting his whole life for precisely this moment.

Before being liberated, Bandit can be seen in the video at his old home, tethered by his neck against a brick wall with just a steel pole between him and his equally forlorn neighbor.

~Bandit’s Freedom Dance~

~Published on Aug 22, 2014~

Bandit was one of many million that live worldwide in narrow stables in tethered housing, all life long. Do animals get used to this? Not really if you watch our unique video. Bandit shows his gratitude to Christian from our sanctuary Gut Aiderbichl and performs a dance of freedom. On our sanctuaries live more than 500 rescued cows, bulls and calves.

Thoughts for today, #221 …. “Speak up … Be Their Voice”!!


Speak

~~August 25, 2015~~ 

ONLY THE WEAK MAN

Only the weak man kills;
Gets his thrills from blood spills –
Decimates, massacres.
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man hunts;
Substitutes the moans and the grunts,
Of the pleasured, for the dying.
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man destroys;
Unfathomable excuses employs,
Trap, bait, confinement exploits.
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man derides;
Mocks in contempt and divides –
Into “higher” and “lower.”
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man enslaves;
Dominates, subjugates … craves,
Devouring the flesh of another.
Only the weak man.

Je Suis USTAD …. hands for T-24!!


JeUst~~May 27, 2015~~ 

Man-killer or victim of human interference?

Debate rages over Ranthambore tiger’s relocation.

An activist has moved the Delhi high court to save a Ranthambore tiger, better known as Ustad, from losing his freedom over what he says are unproven charges of being a man-killer.

The male tiger believed to have killed four humans was shifted from Ranthambore National Park to Sajjangarh Biological Park in Udaipur in a highly secretive move, drawing a sharp rebuke from the country’s highest tiger conservation body for alleged violation of standard operating procedure.

The eight-year-old tiger, officially known as number T-24, will be kept in captivity at Sajjangarh, forest department sources said.

JeUst2

This whole Ustad Lie has been one of the most emotional rollercoaster rides I have ever witnessed.

Those that care know the truth, the people who have come together for this one Majestic Tiger has been international, Your people Ustad have shown who are the Genuine Lovers of your Species of your Forests and of those who watch over you.

May Justice prevail for you Mighty Ustad. May justice prevail for those who fought for your Justice.

You are Ustad

Watch and Listen and then please spread the Truth. May Justice prevail!

~~T 24 USTAD~~

The Unifying Force

~~Published on May 26, 2015~~

There were days when I walked in my territory carefree
My life was beautiful as we were the happy family of one plus three
Often living at the edge, we basked in the glory of life;
While my babies made most of their play, my meals had love from my lovely wife;
Indeed! It was a beautiful life!!

& suddenly every piece of our lives was destroyed,
While I was taken to a zoo, my family was put to endless agony & cries.
Now who will hear us out?
We are left to endless silence of jungles & not equipped as human clout.

I want to be heard coz it is my family whose future is at stake, It is not only us the animals, but even humans can make mistakes.

I am now succumbed to a life of bondage and misery,
All I can see from the cage are the memories.
Memories from the days when I lived like a king
The very sight of me gave you the thrill.

I don’t ask for more, just my freedom!!

Once again, I want to go back & rule my kingdom!!!
