Napping is what I need now…

I was wandering around in the house when I saw this article on my human’s laptop’s screen:

Documents published online this month show that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an organization known for its uncompromising animal-rights positions, killed more than 95 percent of the pets in its care in 2011.

How is this possible? Why? Can someone tell me why?

Fifteen years’ worth of similar records show that since 1998 PETA has killed more than 27,000 animals at its headquarters in Norfolk, VA.

In a February 16 statement, the Center said PETA killed 1,911 cats and dogs last year, finding homes for only 24 pets.

“PETA hasn’t slowed down its slaughterhouse operation,” said Rick Berman, CCF’s executive director. “It appears PETA is more concerned with funding its media and advertising antics than finding suitable homes for these dogs and cats.”

But, but… I thought they were supposed to be helping us animals…

“[PETA’s] primary purpose,” [Dr.] Kovich wrote, “is not to find permanent adoptive homes for animals.”

PETA media liaison Jane Dollinger told The Daily Caller in an email that “most of the animals we take in are society’s rejects; aggressive, on death’s door, or somehow unadoptable.”

Dollinger did not dispute her organization’s sky-high euthanasia rate, but insisted PETA only kills dogs and cats because of “injury, illness, age, aggression, or because no good homes exist for them.”

PETA’s own history, however, shows that this has not always been the case.

In 2005, two PETA employees described as “adorable” and “perfect” some of the dogs and cats they killed in the back of a PETA-owned van. The two were arrested after police witnessed them tossing the animals’ dead bodies into a North Carolina dumpster.

PETA had no comment when the Daily Caller asked what sort of effort it routinely makes to find adoptive homes for animals in its care.

I am shocked.

I think I need to eat some croquettes and have a nap. And give a purr to my human.

For some reason that I don’t understand, it has always been difficult to get along with Milou, one of my half-brothers. When I was first introduced to Milou and Grouik, Milou immediately hissed (after 4+ years he still does, but less often). Then he refused to play with my human’s then boyfriend for about 2 weeks (and he likes to play!).

Later, I tried to play with him, since we both loved to play. Of course, I was young and thin, and he was… less young and thin. But sometimes I have the impression he never really accepted me, although we had good moments together. My human found these old pics. I thought I would share them :-)

I particularly love this one:

I hope you enjoyed these pics as much as I liked remembering these memories!

A couple of days ago my human and I were very excited to learn that a French animated film had been nominated for the Oscars. Not because it was French, but because it appeared to be about a cat. A Cat in Paris! (For those that don’t know me very well yet, I used to be “A Cat in Paris” until I moved to NY with my human, human’s husband and two half-brothers, to become “A Cat in New York”. My Facebook page is still called “A Cat in Paris” because I can’t change its name)

The animated feature film is called “Une vie de Chat” in French which means “A cat’s life,” although they gave it the English title “A Cat in Paris.”

My human managed to get a copy and we watched it.

Spoiler: The story is about a little girl whose father was killed by a famous gangster. Her cat leaves her at night to spend time with a theft and accompany him during his burglaries. When the little girl gets into trouble, the cat and the theft come to the rescue.

I won’t tell you more, except that my human and I were disappointed that with such a title, the film wasn’t that much about the cat, much more about the little girl and the theft, which is okay, only we were expecting more about, well, the cat’s life.

Anyway, we wish them luck for tonight!

Here is an article in French about the film : “Une vie de chat : la surprise française des Oscars”

Bed sharing

Ah-ha! See what it is Grouik when someone’s sleeping in your bed? You have to sleep in the humans’ dirty laundry!

I hope you learnt your lesson, Grouik.

Next: Milou ;-)

Bed(time) story

That’s it. I won’t stay idle without retaliating. Since Grouik and Milou have decided to use my bed, I will use theirs! Starting with Grouik’s…

Here is a little treat for our furiends and human friends alike. Kipling was probably a dog person. I’m glad my human is a cat person ;-)
