Seuss, Misdiagnosed by every Vet that examined him for nearly 6 months!

Anyone that has a beloved pet knows that they are a member of the family and loved as a biological child is loved, that fact in itself is used against us by the majority of veterinarians across the country. When our pets have health issues there isn’t much we wouldn’t do to take care of them and get them healthy again and as I’m sure you know, getting them healthy can break the bank and leave us in a financial mess, what’s more tragic than that is when our pets are written off by their vet because of their advanced age or because of the extent of treatment the animal might need.

Seuss is my 14 year old orange and white tabby cat, every vet that he has ever been to has remarked that he should teach other cats how to behave because he’s always been such a gentle, well mannered, handsome little man. One day when he went to eat he ran yowling from his dish in agony, he was moving his tongue around his mouth frantically, as if he was trying to get a scrap of food out of his mouth or as if there was a shard of glass in there, he ran and hid.  Our vet wasn’t able to get him in until day two of this behavior, incidentally I was worried about dehydration but his bladder had been blocked from not being able to eat or drink, thank God she was able to catheterize him successfully. She said that she didn’t see any problems in the mouth or throat and sent him home. That was back in June of this year and the problem just continued, only his pain grew so bad that he would scream whenever he tried to lap up the puree food I made him and would even yowl in his sleep during the night. I kept returning to the vet telling her that there is something very wrong with Seuss, she kept telling me that she had no idea what was going on, that he wasn’t “textbook” for anything, in spite of that she felt the answer was to extract his entire mouthful of teeth, I didn’t have it done because of the fact that she was only suggesting it because she didn’t know what the problem was! Months of force feeding him with a syringe and when August rolled around, one day he fell over and was critically weak, it was the vets day off and I rushed him back to the office where he was seen by a different vet in the practice, that vet said that he didn’t feel it was the cats mouth at all, but rather his ear ( the same ear that I had been taking him to the vet for, for two years off and on prior ). The next morning they sedated Seuss and took an x-ray of his skull, drew blood and scoped his mouth, throat and ear. There was nothing wrong in the mouth or throat and after the ear was viewed and cultured they found a staph infection and a ruptured eardrum, the ear began to RUN with blood. After all of that and all of those months lost guessing, it was thought that he needed ear surgery because, they said he had to have a mass or polyp in the inner ear canal, of course the surgery he needed wasn’t performed in many places.

Thousands of dollars later and after many different vets seeing him we decided to take him on the long trip to Plains, PA to a hospital there where the ear surgery was performed TECA (total ear canal ablation). Seuss had the T.E.C.A. surgery and there was a mass that the doctor said had spread aggressively, he said there was no way to get it all at this point. When I saw my poor little old guy after the surgery I burst into tears, half of his face is cut up, the incision around the ear is massive, his leg where a line was run is just one giant bruise, under his tail where another line was run is a mess and his neck is a horrific mess. Half of his face is paralyzed because the surgery wasn’t done sooner because it took far too long to diagnose him, he can no longer blink the left eye on the paralyzed side. They left him lay in his bed that we sent with him, in a cage for soo long without checking on him he was completely covered with urine, he hadn’t had any food or drink during his hospital stay!

In September I took Seuss to an emergency room at an animal hospital in Clarks Summit, PA and let me tell you, being brutally honest here, the doctor that saw him was the single most arrogant, obnoxious, insensitive, unfeeling, rough brute that I have ever had the displeasure of taking any animal to! When he asked how old Seuss in and I replied fourteen he immediately responded with, “Well he’s an old guy anyway so what is it you think can be done”. The visit conclude with him telling me that he would GLADLY euthanize Seuss, just say the word, because, he went on to say, if no one can diagnose his problem anyway it’s going to cost you thousands of dollars for an MRI and surgery on a cat that has lived his life and is elderly and that even if someone could find the problem and correct it, you’ll be lucky to get another year out of him! I was disgusted and sick to my stomach, talk about writing an animal off just because of his older age and the fact that a vet has to actually work to find the diagnosis.

Dr. Hassinger in Plains was like no other vet that I had ever seen, he handled Seuss with care and allowed him his dignity, he didn’t write him off and did his best to diagnose him and treat him, even though I’m told that will take a miracle. He was honest but sensitive and understood what Seuss means to us, while I didn’t like the lack of care that Seuss got from the staff that was to take care of him during the hospital stay, I really can’t gripe about the doctor.

Seuss is home now and it will be a long week until we hear the results of the biopsy to determine what comes next, I will never give up hope, I am living proof that miracles do happen and I am expecting a miracle for Seuss too. He’s possibly the strongest cat that has ever lived and if anyone can get through this it will be him, but feel free to say a prayer for him too. If you feel in your gut that something is wrong with  your pet don’t wait, get him to a real vet and if your usual vet doesn’t help your fur baby get that animal to a different one but don’t wait because waiting might mean the difference between life and death for your beloved pet.

Pitbull’s, Dog Fighting, Politics and Morons!

I wonder if there is any hope what so ever for society, the ignorance, the lack of compassion, the cruelty, isn’t it strange how so many of us claim that we do not support animal cruelty and yet it is everywhere we turn. I am baffled, people are murdered by way of a shooting or a child get’s his hands on a gun and ends up dead, crowds of people picket and bitch and moan that we need to lay waste to our right to bear arms to protect our homes and families because you know that these “things”, guns themselves are what are killing innocent people not the irresponsible criminals that sometimes wield them. There are people getting stabbed each and every day but does anyone say that we need to rid the world of the knives? Even worse is the popular misconception about Pitbull’s and the morons that believe they should be eradicated from the face of the planet!

I watched this Death Row Dogs on Netflix and I wanted to vomit, it showed British officers going around confiscating dogs from homes and taking them to determine if they are Pitbulls! Needless to say, if they are then most all will be “destroyed”, these assinine so called officers of the law drag these TERRIFIED animals from the only homes they have ever known using catch poles none the less, screaming at the owners, screaming at each other and they expect the dogs to be serene! Most of the dogs wag their tails as they revel in the attention from the occasional officer, that is before they kill them. The one “educated” officer said that they don’t pet the dog too much or give too much affection/attention because this breed is highly excitable and apt to bite then! It reminds me of Colorado, when they pretty much went door to door dragging away every Pitbull and then slaughtering every last one they got their murderous hands on, piles and piles of dead bodies of Pitbulls! How dare any civilized, educated people blame animals for the reckless behavior of human beings.

There are certain people that are not so kind to others, like the terrorists overseas that kill anyone they can find, does the world say that all of those people need to be eradicated? Blame the guns for criminal behavior of people, don’t look at how many times a firearm has actually saved lives, hell we wouldn’t have police officers if they couldn’t carry guns, no military either! Get rid of the guns and those same criminals that have been forever trying to ruin it for everyone, they will find other weapons. Back to helpless animals, you hear of far more stories of dogs saving lives then you do a dogs taking them, kill entire breeds of dogs because the lowest scum of the earth uses them to do their bidding, ruining the animal and having the audacity to take some kind of credit when the dog has to fight for it’s life and wins, at heinous costs to the animals! These scumbags that fight animals need the exact same thing done to them, all who take any part in dog/animal fighting should suffer the same fate.

These moronic asses out there that say every dog of a particular breed should be killed, they need serious education (a bit of good old fashioned common sense wouldn’t hurt either), when law enforcement, government, lawmakers, take the blatantly cowardice way out when a tragedy occurs and place the punishment solely on the four legged victims, they are not worth holding any office, any position and set the poorest examples for others. Horrible things do sometimes happen and dog bite cases are no exception, especially when the victim is a child, but like humans there is the occasional dog that is beyond help but for God’s sake it isn’t entire breeds, get a clue!

If you love dogs and get the opportunity then you have to watch The Champions, like the garbage I mentioned above this one is on Netflix as well and gives insight to the dogs that have been forced to fight, remember Michael Vick? These were a few of the dogs that one soul with a beating heart was able to save from the vile Michael Vick “collection”, it shows just how deeply traumatized these poor dogs were for a long time and their road to recovery. Not only does it PROVE that these dogs can be rehabilitated but it gives a look into the dark, evil world of dog fighters and it’s enough to make your blood boil. Especially the dogs that were killed after ending up in Vick’s nasty hands, like the ones he hooked electrodes to and threw into the pool, getting off from the teeth marks into the metal sides where the dogs were suffering so badly before they died that they bit the sides hoping for any escape. The phobias these four legged victims suffered was heartbreaking, being terrified out of their minds by the smallest sounds, from staircases because it reminded them of climbing the steps in the building where Vick forced them to fight!

Dogs, regardless of breed want nothing more than to please their masters, curl up in our laps, be taken for walks and play with toys, to be nothing more than normal dogs. People make dogs vicious and believe me when I tell you that if the dog had a choice, don’t let anyone BS you they would not want to fight, not want their body shredded,teeth broken out, holes through bones,  etc. and none of those are as bad as what the scum of the earth dog fighters put the animal through, especially when they lose which usually results in them being murdered in heinous ways. I say we start doing to the pieces of crap that fight these dogs, action for action what they do to the animals, then I guarantee we’d see a decline in the behavior. A plus too would be that tax dollars wouldn’t have to pay for the criminals while they sit behind bars for a few months, if they are punished at all, because the “do unto others” rule would enable them to be tortured to death like they do to the animals!

Tia Torres from Pitbulls and Parolee’s has long been defending, protecting and rehabilitating Pitbulls (but she’s not bias to other breeds either), she was one of the first to step up and try to educate folks about the breed, God love her she has saved too many Pitbulls lives to count and is still going strong. She recognized from the beginning of the debate long ago that Pitbulls were getting an unfair, untrue bad rap and it was costing them their lives, what was more detrimental to the breed was that people jumped on the bandwagon and believed the breed to be vicious, never putting the blame on those that use them as if they were just an inanimate item of property.

However you have to get involved, do something even if it’s just supporting a no kill shelter for breeds that are being eradicated and not allowed within city limits, better yet find out where the elected officials in your area stand on this issue so you’ll know whether or not to campaign for votes for or against the officials next election. This warped thinking needs to be changed and soon and if the majority took a stand then positive change would be inevitable. Please do watch The Champion’s and tell all of your animal loving friends to do the same.

Some PetSmart Fur Babies Available for Adoption

I went into PetSmart yesterday while I was out and like I always do I headed for the cats that are there for adoption, I don’t know why I visit the cats every time that I am down that way because it breaks my heart to see them confined to small cages, many fearful ones hiding in their litter boxes just to have a few moments peace from the barking dogs of customers visiting the store and small children poking at them through the cage bars while squealing loudly with delight.  Sadder yet are the kittens trapped in their cages, kittens are meant to be running around playing all day, getting into mischief and enjoying being like children. If I could I would take them all but I already have two cats that were once strays, as well as a dog that was once an abused and neglected little waif.

The small number of cats outside of the glass enclosure were from Animal Care Associates, a truly no kill shelter but the greater number of cats in cages behind the glass came from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter! In a way they are the lucky ones since there is an agreement with PetSmart that the cats brought from Griffin Pond do not go back to be euthanized and while that may mean that they spend a long time there, at least they will not be killed like so many others that were once at Griffin Pond. An A.C.A. long haired black and white kitten caught my eye because he was slightly cross eyed, it’s a horrible fact that kittens/cats like that, ones with the slightest imperfection are passed over for the cuter fur babies. It didn’t seem to matter that he was one of the more laid back I’ve ever seen, loving and playful, customers overlooked him, the closest anyone came was to stop and admire his sibling that shared the same cage. The little guy seemed to be resigned to it as if he’d spent his short lifetime watching everyone around him get the attention and compliments, society is so hung up on appearances, designer breeds of dogs and cats and hell, designer babies now! I must be one of the “abnormal” people that walk this planet because if I were to again take in an animal, by adoption or coming across an animal in need, I would take the most imperfect one that I could find and if there wasn’t an imperfect one I would take in the oldest I could find! People don’t want the old ones, they don’t want animals that are handicapped or deformed in any way, it’s all about looks!

I ran into a couple while I was in the store looking at the cats, you could tell that they had a true love for animals and they brought up the fiasco at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, as the name always has, it lit a fury in me and I explained to the couple that countless people have always donated to that shelter and by way of doing so, helped to euthanize countless animals. I have always advised folks that wanted to donate and make a difference to donate to a genuine no kill shelter, the woman that runs Animal Care Associates has devoted her life to helping animals in need and does not believe in killing animals just because there are so many of them in need. There are a hell of a lot of people in the world, we are on overload with overpopulation and God knows there are many more people than animals, but we don’t have any plan for population control, we certainly don’t kill our elderly or disabled citizens!

Years ago when I learned that many “no kill” shelters get away with calling themselves no kill by farming out the euthanization cases, what frauds these shelters are, people donate out of the goodness of their hearts to shelters like that and for what, to be duped? I once heard a few teenagers criticizing A.C.A. because the shelter wasn’t bigger, better, cleaner, the list goes on, I was so angry that I went over and educated them by explaining that the bigger shelters like Griffin Pond get all of the money and they euthanize vast numbers of animals. A.C.A. get’s little in the way of donations compared to bigger shelters so what do you expect! Which shelter would you rather give a donation to, one that kills animals daily or one that does not?

Next time you happen to be at PetSmart or any store that offers animal adoptions, take a good look at those fur babies, notice them hiding in the corner of their cages or in their own waste in their litter boxes and realize why that is. If you have children then why not teach them respect for animals, obviously if the animal is trying to escape or hide in their small cages they are afraid and don’t want to be poked at. Imagine being taken to a store or shelter and being locked in a cage, no fresh air, no exercise or play (always that way for cats in cages) kittens being taken from their mothers, they don’t understand what is going on and most are terrified. Don’t write an animal off because of these things by assuming that they are not a friendly, loving, sweet, beautiful, pet that is in dire need of a forever home.

America vs. Walter James Palmer

Actress Mia Farrow posted the business address of Walter James Palmer, the cold blooded killer of Cecil, the most beloved African lion, but the address posted on social media was later deleted after a debate as to whether or not it was acceptable for her to have done so. I ask, why, why delete the address, and why not publish his home residence address too? To Hell with those complaining about privacy, because it doesn’t apply in this situation, period! Walter Palmer gave up any right to privacy when he took that beautiful animal’s life. Furthermore, nowadays there is no privacy, and anyone can go online and get the information that Mia posted!

I guess when someone asks what a life is worth – more specifically the life of a lion that so many people came to know and love – the answer would be a mere fifty thousand or so, and it doesn’t matter if an animal is endangered, critically endangered, or one of a few hundred left walking this planet, to some butchers that have no respect for an animal’s life, it doesn’t matter. No punishment would be too harsh for the heartless, insensitive, yellow-bellied ruffian Walter Palmer or others like him. The fear now is that he will go unpunished or not punished severely enough, which is unacceptable all the way around.

You have to wonder, though, has W. J. Palmer ever been in trouble before for any involvement in any other shady animal killings? Maybe sometime in 2006? I mean, has he been in trouble for hunting a black bear outside of a designated area, and then transporting its body elsewhere so it seemed on the up and up, and then committing perjury to a wildlife official so as not to appear as though he did anything wrong? Seems to me that this butchering dentist is obsessed with killing helpless animals, doesn’t matter what type, where it’s at, or his weapon of choice. Perhaps it’s because he has money that he feels he can get away with whatever he wants to, or maybe he figures that he has plenty enough cash to afford good attorneys for any fines he may accrue, and that he’ll just buy his way out of whatever trouble that might arise! In 2008 W. J. P. pleaded guilty to lying to a U. S. Fish & Wildlife agent about the black bear hunt in Wisconsin two years earlier!

What kind of simpleton not only takes pictures of, but proudly displays pictures of dead leopards, lions, white rhinoceroses, and any other animal that he can butcher? It’s interesting how old Walt didn’t give the murdering of Cecil a second thought until the dumb ass realized that normal people don’t take pleasure in wounding a beautiful, regal animal, such as a lion, and then leaving it to slowly suffer from the wound for two days, dying a slow, excruciating death. ecil the human-tolerant lion was actually lured out of the Hwange National Parks safety using BAIT, where Palmer shot the arrow at him that wounded him, but it wasn’t until 40 hours later that he was shot dead and Palmer claimed his prize. Now, give this a serious thought here: imagine a financially prosperous dentist deciding that he wants to be a real man, and in his narrow mind finding a big, ferocious lion to kill would make him feel like a man, a real tough guy. So this said dentist forks over a pile of cash, travels to Africa and lures one of the most loved, gentle lions in the nation out into the open where he can shoot and wound him with a bow and arrow. So what if the poor animal was wounded and would suffer for days, it only delayed the savage beast (the dentist) from claiming his prize. No, all he’d have to do was to take his time, find the lion and then he could finish him off, behead him and skin him! Cecil didn’t mind human company around him, and at times he sought out their companionship. He had come to believe that they meant him no harm. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the the low life didn’t wait until the poor animal was out of his misery before pleasuring himself by doing whatever he could do to Cecil and his body – the more offensive and bloody, the better to sate his never ending bloodlust!

It is not permitted here in the United states to bait deer in order to lure them out to kill them, not that it should be different according to animal, but this was a lion, how the hell is it right to lure it out only to kill it? The most vile, evil part of this is that Walter James Palmer wants people to believe that he didn’t know about Cecil, that he thought the hunt was legal but yet the trusting Cecil was lured out of the parks safety using bait! It is called bait because we all know that the animal will definitely go for it, and it’s like a lamb to slaughter! How could it make anyone feel like a tough guy, to set an animal up for guaranteed failure by using bait in order to trick it into coming out into the open? There is no easier kill.

I try never to feel hatred toward any other human being, and although it’s questionable as to whether or not Walter James Palmer is human, I feel disgust and pity for the man – if you could call him that? It’s one thing to do something horrendous and feel genuine remorse, it’s another to feign remorse because you got caught and the world’s eyes are upon you while they shake their fists in disgust. Look at this guy’s history, it speaks volumes, it shows what a bottom feeding, dishonest, offensive, self-indulgent, egotistical braggart the jackass is, and has always been. I’ll bet that his offspring will grow up to think that his blatant disregard for the lives of animals is fine and dandy too. Normal members of society loathe poachers, and from where I sit, W. J. P. is no better than any other poacher out there. The only difference may be that he attempts to hide behind the law while he stalks and slaughters any animal that he can get his paws on, and it seems that it’s been going on for a long, long time. I shudder to think of the sheer number of animals that have died and suffered ungodly wounds while dying a slow death at his hands!

Hats off to all of the celebrities that have come forward to voice their disgust and rage on Walter James Palmer butchering the lovely Cecil, especially Mia Farrow who risked backlash to take the only action that she really could have – she at least did something, and, right or wrong, that’s the only way that we can so much as hope that W. J. P. will be punished to the fullest, and that some change will be made to prevent this ever happening again. I’ve heard that there was a small group of people protesting outside of the murdering dentist’s office and that he’s received a lot of backlash – and you know what? The man deserves every bit of it! How dare he try to feed us even more of his bull dunk, how dare he try to pass the blame for his foul behavior, how dare he feign ignorance.

Brad Pitt Not Chicken To Make A Change

It’s a shame that more celebrities aren’t like Brad Pitt. It’s a shame that, in the case of the vast majority of them, they instead worry about where their next plastic surgery is going to come from, rather than stand up for causes that have little to no voice or support. If they do support anything, they will choose such causes as trying to make every last citizen on the planet support transvestites or homosexuals, when Heaven knows there is an excess of support for those types of issues, even though bigger, more critical issues are being swept under the mat!

Animals have no voice whatsoever. They are slaughtered every minute of every day; it’s for food in some cases, but it’s also often for sport, their fur, tusks, teeth, fins. You name it and they are killed for it, and that’s why so many have become, and are quickly becoming, extinct, by land, air and sea. Many groups claim that they are against animal cruelty/abuse but yet the cruelty goes on every day with nothing being done and no change in sight. Take chickens for example. Have you ever seen how those eggs you buy from the supermarket are obtained? Have you seen how the chickens that supply them for you are treated? So, now, if you do care, you might say, “well, how can I help? There’s nothing that I can do about it,” and you’d be wrong! If the consumer refused to buy eggs from chickens that were not free range (free roaming), then you would see things change real fast!

Each cage holds six to eight chickens, preventing the birds from so much as spreading their wings, laying down, or being able to turn around. Said cages are piled up, one on top of the other, and there are sometimes ten cages high! Those chickens never feel the grass underneath them, never roost the way that chickens love to, never dust their feathers like normal, free range ones can, and never scratch around the ground, which they are wired to do. The most disgusting, cruel part of all is that the chickens that supply the eggs at most all stores are the ones that live under these awful conditions! I don’t care what any chicken farmer says, there is no excuse for this type of cruel confinement, and if they can’t make a run outside for the chickens to live, while they do nothing but supply eggs for their entire lives, then the so called farmers shouldn’t be allowed to have them. Perhaps the farmers would say that they had to go and fetch the eggs after the chickens laid them, big damned deal, or maybe the eggs wouldn’t be clean enough for them and they would have to wash them, big deal. If the everyday citizen has to follow the rules (some would say rules of common sense and decency), then so should the farmers, as they chose to go into the “egg business” and are no different than anyone else. Change needs to come, and it needs to come soon.

It’s strange that children are supposedly not as mature as adults are supposed to be, and yet most children would know better. They recognize that animals should not be treated the way that many are, and should you take a child into one of the chicken buildings at one of these egg supplying farms and the child would be appalled. Kids know immediately that no one should have so many chickens piled into a small wire cage all in the name of the almighty buck. It must be that most all of these so-called chicken farmers don’t give a crap about the well being of the birds. They are too interested in grubbing up all of the eggs that they produce, as fast as they can!

It’s sad, like a cow that gives us milk, a chicken requires little and they give a lot in return. You’re getting something from them, so why not give something besides the absolute basics of a little feed and water? Many would rather sit on their eggs and hatch peeps, but they don’t have a say in that, so, at the very least, give them some fresh air and room to turn around and spread their wings. Imagine sitting in a box where you have a little head room, but your arms are at your side constantly 24/7, where you are so crammed in that you cannot turn around, and you can’t move your arms. Can you imagine how stiffened up you’d get? But what, is it acceptable just because we’re talking about chickens, just because people like eggs, the chickens can be treated as poorly as one wants? Hats off to Brad Pitt for trying to make a change. We need more people like him, celebrities that use their fame for a greater cause, who aren’t afraid to go up against big business, or any business!

Walter James Palmer: Defining Cowardice

Walter James Palmer, the “dentist” from Minnesota, is someone I’m sure you’ve heard the name of – if not, perhaps you can look in the dictionary under COWARD! It’s vermin like Walter that give all Americans a bad name. He’s a real tough guy, a hunter that loves to prove to everyone he can kill beloved, harmless, beautiful animals, whether endangered or not. This man is said to be the father of two, and I wonder how he would feel if some self-proclaimed tough guy hunted him down, and his children, too. What kind of psycho, with his extremely overblown sense of self-worth, pays to go out and kill an older animal that loved human contact, one who had survived all kinds of threats and encounters in his own environment, only to have a piece of shit – with a bow and arrow, nonetheless – lure him out and wound him, then leave him there to suffer for two entire days? Yeah, sure, by anyone’s standards that takes a real tough guy. More like an avid butcher who senselessly slaughters helpless animals. Now, it would have made Walter really something to brag about if he had gone on his so called conquest fairly, but let’s see the ball-less jerk go one-on-one with the regal Cecil and fight fair. Let’s see him use the same weapons that were available to that helpless lion!

Again I have to ask, what in God’s name would possess the most moronic, low-life that exists on this planet to go out and kill not only helpless animals unable to defend themselves, animals loved by so many, but also critically endangered animals as well? Society thinks that we only have poachers to worry about, when there are total, good for nothing, useless, simpletons like Walter Palmer. I guarantee you that, next thing you know, Walter Palmer will be claiming not to know that Cecil was so loved by so many, a typical excuse used by a senseless killer! I truly hope that the African officials do not let this butcher get away with this, or that excuses like permits, permission, ignorance, or any other lame nonsense, do not cause anyone to go easy on this so-called “man.”

Palmer, to sate his blood thirst, travels across the globe, where his money is so desperately needed that he figures he can, literally, get away with murder! Is it because we have more stringent laws in the United States, or is it because we have no exotic or endangered animals here, that this is where this behavior would not go unpunished? Where there would be such an uproar that people would probably be picketing in his front yard, all gathered to protest just outside of his home? Though, I hope that happens anyway. Low-lives like Walter don’t give the slightest damn whether an animal may be the very last of its kind. All he sees is a prize that he actually believes gains him bragging rights, because we all know that it takes one-of-a-kind skill to have a weapon that an animal doesn’t and take its life, and some real skill to leave an animal suffering. True skill it is when an animal loves human company, too! What’s worse still, or just as shameful, is that he’ll raise another generation to believe that his disgusting, cowardice, vile behavior is perfectly acceptable. This butchering dentist needs to be made an example of in the most severe ways.

I’ve heard it said that Walter James Palmer’s actions are probably his way of trying to compensate for his physical “shortcomings”, but I personally think that his problem is deep rooted, far more deviant in nature. Like the Devil himself, some wannabe tough guys like the feeling of control, and the more helpless their victims, the better. Imagine a lion, one known and loved by so many people, one that didn’t mind human company and at times sought people out, a regal, courageous lion like Cecil, trusting the humans around him that he’d become so accustom to in his twelve years of life, being lured out into the open, but thinking that he had nothing to fear from one of the humans that he’d come to trust. He must have thought none would do him harm, never knowing that laying in wait was a two legged, piece of trash predator who would put an arrow in him and then let him suffer with a mortal wound for an entire day! I’m only sorry that the premise for the new show ZOO weren’t true, that all of the animals left couldn’t band together and turn the tables on garbage like the cowardly Walter James Palmer.

I’m sure that Mr. Palmer will attempt to blow some smoke up our rear ends and feign remorse for his disgusting, murderous, senseless, slaughtering of Cecil, the sweet old lion who was part of a long-term study, and perhaps in his small mind it will convince others that he is sorry, but I’m going to have to call bull crap on that one! You see, money can buy almost anything I guess, and wealth can buy you a chance to murder Simba, but what wealth cannot buy you is respect, and it can’t make everyone else forget, or think that vile actions are acceptable! This reminds me of the other wussy “hunters” who, like W.J.P., think that they are skilled snipers and go into a small, caged area and kill lions, tigers, etc. We will all be impressed when there comes a hunt where the hunters sign off on themselves first so that no one else can be sued if they get killed, and then they are part of a fair hunt, one where all sides are even, where the two legged participants go into it with only what God gave them, as do the animals. Let these hunting tough guys (and gals) learn what a fair hunt/fight is, if they come out of it alive, and then – and only then – do they have something to brag about. W.J.Palmer and others like him remind me of the wussies that go into a fight but can only engage in it when they have four, five, or an even larger number of others to back them up in a fight with just one other person, because by themselves (like when hunting a defenseless animal) they are inferior and, though I don’t like to use the blatant word for it, are nothing more than wussies!

Love Your Cat? Then Why Are You De-Clawing Him or Her?

Some people claim that we live in a decent, humane society, and that we are progressing rather than regressing, but I challenge you to take a brutally honest look around you, then look someone directly in their eyes and try to say the same. Countless species of animals have been wiped from the face of the planet, never to walk this Earth again, and through no fault of their own either, strictly because of greedy poachers and egotistical hunters. Look at our treatment of domestic animals, the cats and dogs that so many millions of people claim to love, look at how many are killed each and every day in this country, their last minutes of life spent in a shelter cage, waiting for a loving family that never comes.

Look at house cats, look at the procedure of declawing, an excruciating, maiming, horrendous amputation that ends up many times with the cat dying in the end anyway, whether it’s from the owner getting rid of it for biting all of a sudden, or not going in the litter box because of the pain it’s left with. Look at the big cats that some morons have had declawed, since it’s too horrible for words and you have to see it for yourself to truly grasp the barbarity of it. Go to the Paws Project website and watch the video of Kona, the cougar who suffered in agony after having been declawed, see for yourself what this procedure does to cats of all types, sizes, and ages.

Want to know how good your vet is? Ask if he or she performs the declawing procedure or if the vet supports having it done. Sadly, many vets are motivated mostly by money and are all too eager to declaw whatever cats they can. Veterinarians, like our medical doctors, promise not to do harm, and yet look at the evidence of the harm done as a result of declawing. Like in the California cities where the procedure was banned, we need laws in the rest of this country to protect our pets, as God knows they can’t speak for themselves any more than they can try to bring about change. Personally, I think that the biggest problem is lack of education about the procedure – after all, look at all of the other countries around the world where the procedure is prohibited! We call ourselves the United States, we’re supposed to be so educated, we’re supposed to know better!

Please check out the website for The Paws Project, read the information provided and watch the videos, educate yourself and please pass it on to everyone you know. It’s shocking just how many people out there, even who really understand what declawing is, don’t know that it’s de-knuckling the animals and the exact devastating effects it causes. Jump on board and do your part, educate yourself and everyone you meet, if you can save even one cat from this hell, then be proud!
