my heart skipped a beat from the cute.
Harvey used to be a fighting dog. His ears torn from battles he was forced into. He flinches when you talk too loud around him. He gets so excited when you prepare his food, as in disbelief that he’s actually going to eat this many days in a row and when you put the food down he kisses you in gratitude. He’s afraid of thunder, soda cans, the TV and when baby Nick Fury meows when he’s hungry. When we first picked up Harvey from the pound half of his face was missing and he was severely underweight.Now he’s a kitten baby sitter. FIGHT BSL IN YOUR COUNTY.

PETA launches XXX site
Ever since PETA first announced last summer that it was securing one of the new .xxx top level domains for a ”pornography site that draws attention to the plight of animals,” reaction has varied from amusement to outrage. This morning, the organization finally took the wraps off of the new site — and guess what? It’s really not that bad.

um what….? seriously, PETA?

so you think you know what the most badass animal is
well you’re wrong because the most badass animal is actually the goat

You’re allergic to poison ivy. Goats aren’t. Goats EAT poison ivy.

Kitten with rare birth defect fights to get back on his feet
Rescued before he could be euthanized, Corky has had several surgeries to correct his mangled legs, but he now faces a final procedure: amputation of one leg.
HUMANS ARE PREDATORS? ORELLI!? This rant isn’t even about pushing a meat-free lifestyle, it’s about people being bloody idiots for thinking humans are predators.
Humans aren’t predators. We don’t have claws or fangs, we weren’t built to hunt without tools.
Can you take down an antelope without any weapons? yeah, didn’t think so.
Would you be able to fight with an actual predatory animal that has claws and fangs like a lion or a wolf? Don’t kid yourself, a strong enough domesticated dog could rip you apart, and you’d complain about a house cat scratching you hard enough.
You try to scratch your cat til it bleeds with your nails, see how much damage your nails do. Yeah you can leave scars with hard enough nail scratches, but I’d like to see you try and kill another animal with those nails. I’d like to see you try and win a fight with a dog by bitting it with your comparatively pathetic jaws & teeth.
HUMANS ARE NOT PREDATORS. THEY ARE NOT CARNIVORES. you would get sick eating raw meat because you’re an omnivore, not a predatory carnivore. if you ate nothing but meat, you would probably die, if not from the bacteria that your weaker stomach acids couldn’t kill, then from malnutrition.
We descended from bloody apes. Apes are not carnivores. They’re omnivores. We don’t have the jaws or teeth to kill animals.
The earliest humans were mostly herbivores because it was not until they figured out how to make tools and fire that meat really became a food source, and even then it was in moderation because a whole fucking mammoth would feed the whole village for a while, but they mostly survived off plants and grains and the like.
Early people were called HUNTER GATHERERS for a reason. THEY GATHERED PLANTS AND GRAINS AS WELL AS HUNTING.
To quote my anthropology teacher: “in the animal kingdom, humans are ugly, useless, weak creatures. we don’t have fur to keep us naturally warm, nor do we have horns or antlers to protect us as prey, and we don’t have claws or fangs to hunt as predators. if it wasn’t for our brains and our ability to create tools and do complex thinking, we would not survive in nature.”
Want to prove me wrong? Go out in the wilds of Africa totally naked, without any weapons or tools & without ever using your brain & abilities to make the tools you lack, and see how long you last and whether you succeed in being a predator.
The Bull Who Cried
Reported by “Weekly World News”, in Hong Kong, a group of workers took a bull to the slaughterhouse. They were about to enter the facillity when the bull suddenly stopped and knelt on its front paws.
The bull was crying.
Shiu, one of the workers, claims he started to shiver seeing those “scared and sad eyes”, and, as much as they tried to pull the bull inside, it wouldn’t move and just stood there, sobbing like a child.
The workers were not able to slay it, also tearing up at the sight, collecting funds to buy the animal and deliver it to the care of the monks of a nearby temple.
Apparently, when they said they would not kill it, the bull got up and followed them.

How to deal with life: A lesson by the animal kingdom.
IF ONLY IT WERE THIS EASY
I had a conversation with my housemate the other day, about how I don’t trust cows and think they’re up to something. Think about it. Cows must really hate us. All factory farmed animals probably are plotting against the human race. Their entire existence on earth is essentially torture. Think of recent disease epidemics - mad cow disease, foot and mouth, avian flu, swine flu… they’re all animals that are farmed for humans’ consumption and karma is already doing its thing…
Snow White the rescued albino squirrel recuperates at HART Wildlife Rescue near Alton in Hampshire. The animal was found badly injured after being attacked by grey squirrels. Vets at the centre placed a mirror in her pen so they could keep an eye on her but it turns out that Snow White quite enjoys looking at herself.
