In a US slaughterhouse a secret video was made by workers (not animal activists) and given to the Washington Post. The tape revealed conscious animals going down the processing line, and an incident where an electric prod was jammed into a steer’s mouth. According to the Post..”More than 20 signed affidavits alleging that the violations shown on the tape were commonplace and that supervisors are aware of them”. In one affidavit, a worker explained,..”I’ve seen thousands and thousands of cows go through the slaughter process alive…The cows can get seven minutes down the line and still be alive. I’ve been in the the side puller where they are still alive. All the hide is stripped out down the neck there.” And when workers who complain are listened to at all, they get fired. Another worker said..”I’ve never seen a (USDA) vet near the knocking pen. Nobody wants to come back there. See, I’m an ex-Marine. The blood and guts don’t bother me, it’s the inhumane treatment. There’s just so much of it.”

Kim Jong-un has been missing for 37 days and everyone assumes that he’s been “overthrown” or that he’s “planning something” but I’m pretty sure he just got his head stuck between the stair banisters again.

This has led to a bizarre paradox: The Creationist with an iPhone or respectively the Anti-Vaxxer in a Prius. Utilizing science and all its comforts and advances, while being selectively skeptical about what science actually has to offer. Using technology to deny science takes some skilled compartmentalizing. It’s saying you have faith in science enough to post cat gifs on Facebook but not enough for science to contradict your convictions. There was a time when we thought the Information Superhighway would make everyone more informed, better educated. Instead its enabled the misinformed to find places to permanently nestle in confirmation bias. Misery loves company—as does ignorance.

TIGERS ARE ON RED ALERT

The Sumatran Tiger is said to be extinct by 2015, with fewer than 300-400 left in the wild due to large-scale habitat loss, poaching, hunting and human-tiger conflict. Other subspecies are said to follow.

THIS IS NOT OK. :(

IMPORTANT SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE

WHAT THE FUCK

WELL FUCK EVERYTHING!

I WORKED FOR AN NGO THAT WAS TRYING TO SAVE TIGERS FOR ABOUT HALF A YEAR, PEOPLE ON THE STREETS SPIT AT ME AND THREATENED ME (WHICH IS NOT THE POINT) BUT YOU LISTEN UP:

  • THERE ARE ONLY 3.200 WILD TIGERS LEFT ON THE ENTIRE WORLD
  • 97% OF THEIR HABITAT HAS BEEN BURNED DOWN OR REMOVED OTHERWISE
  • 3 OUT OF 9 TIGER-SUBSPECIES HAVE ALREADY DIED OUT
  • THE SOUTH-CHINESE TIGER HASN’T BEEN SIGHTED IN OVER 30 YEARS
  • THEY ARE SKINNED ALIVE (AS ARE MOST ANIMALS) BC YOU CAN REMOVE THEIR FUR EASIER WHEN THEY ARE STILL BLEEDING
  • NO EXCEPTIONS FOR CUBS
  • SOME PEOPLE HUNT THEM BC THEY THING A TIGER PENIS MAKES THEM BETTER IN BED (I’M NOT KIDDING)
  • EXPERTS CLAIM THAT IF THE KILLING GOES ON, TIGERS WILL BE ENTIRELY EXTINCT IN 2022

SAVE THE TIGERS.

I WANT MY CHILDREN, MY CHILDREN’S CHILDREN, AND MY CHILDREN’S CHILDREN’S CHILDREN TO KNOW WHAT TIGERS LOOK LIKE WITHOUT EXPLAINING IT USEING TEXT BOOKS AND STUFFED ANIMALS.

THIS DEEPLY UPSETS ME. PLEASE SAVE THE TIGERS.

SAVE MY FAVOURITE BIG CAT.

It’s time to start planning for the holidays already!

Our hope is to collect some really good tasty treats, toys and squishy beds for homeless cats in shelters this holiday season! From now until December, we will be collecting items to mail to non-profit shelters so that homeless kitties can have the best holiday ever! Having comforting items while in a shelter can make a huge difference in the life of a homeless animal. A shelter’s main priority is keeping the cats healthy, so a shelter cat getting something special is really rare!

We have an Amazon Wishlist if you would like to pick out an item for a shelter kitty! We will also donate money to the shelters we mail gift boxes to! And we will throw in some of our handmade cat toys and plushes!

The number of places we will donate to will depend on how many gifts we can gather. The locations are also TBD, but you can always recommend places by contacting us admin@thetinytabby.com <3

Looking for gifts for your human companions? Our store donates half of each purchase to cat shelters and rescue groups. Thank you for your support, and remember to support your local shelters!!

Morning Reblog! Thank you SO SO MUCH to the awesome people that bought some things off of our list already!

I have donated toys to shelters before, and they thanked me so much because at that time the kitties has ZERO toys! It was so sad! I hope this idea turns out to be a success :)

Check out the list here.   <3

But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy.
