The New ASPCA Commercial Is Emotional Cruelty To Humans

Last night, I was catching up on some television when this commercial came on the air. Now, I should note that I love the ASPCA, the charity and pet adoption organization that seeks to end cruelty to animals. The ASPCA is where I adopted my cat, Cleo, and it’s an organization that I regularly give money to. But I hold that this commercial is just too much. Apparently, Sarah McLachlan’s “Arms of the Angel” spot wasn’t emotionally charged enough. This new ad shows clips of forlorn looking animals as a sentence unfolds about them onscreen. “Tabitha, Locked up her whole life.” “Mink, Abused and living in fear.” “Nathaniel, Never loved and left to die.” And the worst, “Blondie, Abandoned and dying of a broken heart.”

Before I knew it, not 20 seconds into the ad, I was huffing and puffing, in tears, little rivers running down my cheeks. Keep reading »

Paralyzed Cat Takes To Water To Learn To Walk


You know, you can’t learn to run without learning to walk first. And if you’re British cat Mog, you can’t learn to walk again until you learn how to swim. Mog was paralyzed after being hit by a car, but his dedicated owner wouldn’t give up on him. She took him for swimming therapy and Mog is slowly regaining the use of his front paws! Let’s hear it for science (and super devoted pet owners)! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Would You Have Your Pets Be A Part Of Your Wedding, A La Miranda Lambert?

The self-shot venison dinner, the cowboy boots for the bridesmaids, the wearing of her mom’s wedding dress, the fishing honeymoon—yes, we have been thoroughly obsessed with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s sweet downhome wedding. But now a new detail has reeled me in even further. Apparently, Miranda and Blake were adamant about their dogs—chihuahua Cher, chihuahua-pug Delta, and terrier Delilah—being a big part of their nuptials. The three pups walked down the aisle with one of Miranda’s boot-clad bridesmaids. The doggies even got their own rhinestoned bandanas and collars for the occasion. “They were rock stars! Total rock stars, ” says Miranda’s publicist/wedding planner. “They were tiny little representatives, but they got a lot of laughs and attention. They were right in the big middle of everything … [Miranda] wanted a place where everybody would be comfortable, would have a great time, just feel at home and her dogs could be a part of it.”

This has me wondering—would you have your pets be a big part of your wedding? Keep reading »

What’s Up, Pussycat?

Yesterday a scampish rogue IMed me with a link and the message, “To the only person who loves p**sy and fashion as much as I do.” Oh, dear, I thought, mostly because I don’t like p**sy. But I clicked to link and much to my surprise I’m kinda in love with Elisabeth Moch’s funky Gibson-Girl-slash-I-Can-Haz-Cheezburger cat people. Some people have too much time on their hands … and I like it. [Elisabeth Moch] Keep reading »
