What photos look happy at first glance but make you immensely sad?
My poor little disabled cat. Gone now…..and I miss him so much it hurts every single day. I just hope he knew how much I loved him…my precious little friend…
My poor little boy was brain-damaged at birth and within a year he couldn`t walk. He was my son`s cat but when they were hit with a very serious health situation he came to live with me….and i couldn`t give him back. I bought nappies for him for his little accidents in the day and night. But regularly through the day i would lay him on his side on some newspaper and he knew he had to do his business.
At mealtimes I had to hold him over his bowl so he could eat in a normal position. At night I wrapped him in a blanket in his big bed. He loved his handful of bedtime treats.
In fine weather I put him in a big dog cage in the garden with his bed. I was scared of hawks or crows harming him. But if I was in the garden he used to love lying on the grass rubbing his face against it.
But inevitably he grew older and his health deteriorated. He had a terrible diagnosis from the vet…and he lost his spark and was clearly suffering. I had to make that awful decision.
The first thing I look at when I wake every morning is this photograph. And at night this is the last thing I see before I close my eyes.
One day his photograph will be the last thing I see….before I meet him again...

The wheels of business and human food compulsions are implacable and totally lacking in compassion. This is a downed cow, badly hurt, but still being dragged to slaughter.

With plentiful non-animal meat substitutes that fool the palate, there is no longer reason for this senseless suffering. Meat consumption is a serious ecoanimal crime. The tyranny of the palate must be broken. Please consider changing your habits in this regard.
