animal cruelty not ok

Me to my family: meat is so bad for you and the environment we don’t need to kill these innocent animals

My family: shut up u hippie liberal

Mainstream news channels: heh heh I guess the crazy vegans might be right, meat isn’t so good for u after all!

My family: oh my gosh did you know that meat causes health problems wow. I’m so informed now. This is brand new to me.

Me: I’ve literally been saying this for years ok..

It’s that time of year again and I want to remind everyone that if you find a baby turtle outside, relocate it if it is in danger, otherwise leave it alone. Don’t bring it in and try to make it your pet.

At work I hear “we’ll release it when it gets bigger!” a lot from people not realizing that once you bring an animal into captivity from such a young age and condition it to expect food from people, you cannot release it and expect it to know how to hunt for its own food or avoid predators. Keeping a turtle in an unheated tank with no proper lighting or filtration will also weaken its immune system, making it more susceptible to illnesses it would catch in the wild. Re releasing is a death trap.

If you are for some reason bound and determined to keep a turtle you’ve found outside as a pet please consider that these turtles get the size of a dinner plate, require expensive heating and lighting setups, strong filtration and frequent tank maintenance, and a variety of foods. They can’t live in a bowl or a 10 gallon tank forever. They need at least 10 gallons of water per inch of shell, meaning adult red ear sliders and painted turtles need at least 100 gallons as adults.

Turtles are expensive and they are NOT easy beginner pets. Removing a wild animal from its home for your own enjoyment and keeping it in subpar conditions is animal cruelty.

I really try not to think about stuff because it really depresses me, but seeing all these petitions about rape, animal cruelty, child abuse etc. How can i feel ok when all that is going on?like how can one be aware n still be happy i dunno

Incoming rant, MY beliefs… I really don’t care if you disagree! If you want to go on about it and message me, go right ahead but don’t be rude.

I see little toes and fingers! Just like me… I feel a heartbeat and hear her crying when she wants loving, food, or to go to the bathroom. I see a soul, a loving creature. A friend really… Someone who is always there for me. Someone who will always love me, and forgive me. Someone who is always happy, and always willing to play! Someone who doesn’t judge. I really think we can learn a thing or two from our animal friends. & maybe if you stopped being so close minded you’d see we are very similar. You’d see you’re being selfish and cruel. You’re not superior. You may think you are but, reality check BUD… you’re not. I do not believe “GOD” put animals here for our use. That is complete and utter fucking bullshit. Selfish, self centered, egotistical, yep that’s you. So there you go! I know you’re not reading this, and even if you did you wouldn’t care. I just had to let it out somewhere.

i… am very confused. lol

Sorry, I just saw this!

Someone I follow posted a video that said “Waking a cat up with an airhorn” and they like… made the motion of putting the airhorn up to the sleeping cat’s face and then gently tapped them with it instead of blowing it at them, and the cat responded by rubbing their face against the person’s hand, obviously happy.

The whole point was to make people think they were going blow it in the cat’s face, which would have been really upsetting and awful and cruel, but I know no one I follow is ok with animal cruelty/abuse and wouldn’t find that funny. SO obviously it had to be a fake out. :P So I wasn’t worried or fooled.

I referred to it as a reverse vague because I was saying positive things about people I follow– they’re good people who I trust not to be ok with terrible upsetting things, Vagues are usually passive aggressive references to someone being shady or shitty.

5+ Headcanons - Kylux Animal Welfare AU

For the wonderful @the-negotiator who asked for a Park Ranger AU, but I kinda expanded this out into my own realm of experience so it’s not really what you asked for. It also kinda got away from me. TW: references to serious animal abuse/death.

That’s Not A Hedgehog, That’s A Pine Cone

Kylo owns and runs a wild animal sanctuary and rehabilitation centre. His mother paid for it after he got thrown out of a succession of animal rights organisations for being too aggressively militant. He totally stabbed a guy for kicking a dog once. He may have been behind an arson attack on whaling vessel. Leia doesn’t want to know, she just wants to stop bailing him out of foreign jails, so she sets him up with some land and an old school house that he does up to serve as the animal hospital. He ends up with a team of loyal veterinarians and assistants that all live in the attic rooms of the house. He calls them his Knights. They all think he’s amazing and tolerate this nonsense.

Hux is an Animal Welfare Officer for a large international animal charity. He was in the Army but left after two tours due to a shoulder injury. The injury prevented him from joining the police like his father wanted. Frankly he’s glad, he’s not a fan of dealing with people. He’s good at getting them to do what he wants, he’s a natural leader, he just doesn’t want to be. He’s a nightmare for the call handlers (he’s made Mitaka cry over a map reading error) but the admin staff adore him, you’ll never see a more accurately written report and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty during rescues. He’s also excellent at getting convictions in cruelty cases, partially thanks to his report writing and partially thanks to his terrifying stare in court.

He owns a tripod ginger cat named Millicent that had been thrown against a wall as a kitten. She was one of his very first cruelty cases and he carried her around in his shirt for a lot of her recovery. She very cuddly and still likes to get into his clothes when fireworks are going off. Her original owner, one Albert Snoke, was convicted of causing unnecessary suffering and sentenced to community service but he didn’t show up to his sessions. Two weeks later he died in a car crash, though the accident investigators said the brake line wore through naturally.

Kylo has a hyperactive red setter called Saber that he adopted from the charity centre Hux usually works from. He spent months doing volunteer dog walking at the centre just so he could have a chance to talk to the angry red head. Hux found him irritating as he’s really not there to deal with the public, that’s what the guys in the blue uniforms are there for Ren, please stop following me around. But he kinda warms to him after he manages to persuade Saber to come out of his run for the first time since he was rescued. Hux had found him as a bait dog in a dog fighting ring and Saber was terrified of everything. Something about this wall of muscle talking kindly to a sad dog melted a tiny corner of Hux’ frozen heart.

Today I couldn't find my cat anywhere. She's normally right there when I get up, so I was worried but thought, maybe she's just sleeping somewhere. Hours and hours later, I find out my little brother got annoyed with her sneaking into his room, so he locked her in to "torture her all day" then said I should've got up to take care of her. He goes to work at 5am!! Sometimes I don't even get to bed before he leaves! That was NOT okay and I hope she peed in his room.

EW WHAT A FUCKO?????

DONT BE THIS ASSHOLE

I stopped at a goodwill today, and as I got out of my car I noticed that the black car next to mine had a dog inside. Upon closer inspection I saw that all the windows were up and the dog was panting frantically. Needless to say, I was very concerned.

I waited until the owner of the car came out, and this was the conversation we had. Let me just point out a few things:

1. It was like 65° at least (not that the air temp really matters in this situation)
2. This dog was a beautiful well groomed husky with tags and a collar.
3. A dog (usually) doesn’t pant rapidly when they haven’t been physically active UNLESS they’re overheated.

Basically, this asshole completely ignored all of my concerns and facts about the dog and proceeded to lie straight to my face claiming they “weren’t even his”

I’m still shaking and upset about this, this is NOT ok.

Aren’t we vegan because we think animals shouldn’t be abused? So what’s up with vegans being ok with others eating animal products? It’s ok that they are contributing to animal cruelty as long as you aren’t?
