“People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an organization that publicly claims to represent the best interest of animals – indeed their “ethical treatment.” Yet approximately 2,000 animals pass through PETA’s front door every year and very few make it out alive. The vast majority – 96 percent in 2011 – exit the facility out the back door after they have been killed, when Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater stops by on their regular visits to pick up their remains. Between these visits, the bodies are stored in the giant walk-in freezer PETA installed for this very purpose. It is a freezer that cost $9,370 and, like the company which incinerates the bodies of PETA’s victims, was paid for with the donations of animal lovers who could never have imagined that the money they donated to help animals would be used to end their lives instead. In fact, in the last 11 years, PETA has killed 29,426 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other domestic animals.”

“A supermarket dumpster full of garbage bags. When police officers looked inside, they found the bodies of dead animals – animals killed by PETA. PETA described these animals as “adorable” and “perfect.” A veterinarian who naively gave PETA some of the animals, thinking they would find them homes, and examined the dead bodies of others, testified that they were “healthy” and “adoptable."”

“The PETA field killing kit found by police in the back of the PETA death van in Ahsokie, North Carolina.”

“An Ahsokie Police Detective dressed in a hazmat suit prepares to bury a puppy killed by PETA. This puppy and dozens of other animals including cats and kittens were found by police throughout June of 2005 after PETA employees dumped them in a garbage bin in North Carolina.’”

“Puppies killed by PETA in the back of a van – a donor-funded slaughterhouse on wheels. Despite $35,000,000 in annual revenues and millions of "animal-loving” members, PETA does not even try to find them homes. PETA has no adoption hours, does no adoption promotion, has no adoption floor, but is registered with the State of Virginia as a “humane society” or “animal shelter."”

“Not only does PETA kill animals, they also defend the killing of animals by others. This is a dying kitten in a Houston shelter after staff "lost” the kitten. When he was found, he was near death. His last hours were ones of suffering.”

“A puppy dying of parvovirus in the Houston shelter is not given anything soft to lie on as she urinates all over herself. Here she sits, unable to keep her head up, alone in a cold, barren stainless steel cage without receiving necessary veterinary care. Other shelters have a better than 90% rate of saving dogs with parvovirus.”

“The PETA solution: dead “feral” cats in a Florida shelter. PETA successfully defeated SB 1320, a law that would have clarified that nonlethal programs to neuter and release feral cats, rather than killing them, are legal in Florida. As shelters and health departments nationwide embrace trap-neuter-release programs, PETA remains a stalwart opponent of this humane alternative to killing, arguing that healthy feral cats should continue to be killed, even urging their supporters to take them to shelters or veterinarians to do so. The PETA website states that, “the most compassionate choice is to euthanize feral cats. You can ask your veterinarian to do this or, if your local shelter uses an injection of sodium pentobarbital, take the cats there.” This shelter used “an injection of sodium pentobarbital,” killing the cats in front of other cats, catch-poling the cats as they tried to flee while they urinated and defecated all over the kennel in fear. That is how terrified feral cats behave in shelters. Apparently to PETA, this is as it should be.”

“A cat in the King County, Washington shelter begs for food and water. Cats in the infirmary were not fed or given water over a three-day holiday weekend and both their food bowls and water bowls are empty. Although staff was assigned to the shelter, supervisors and staff chose to socialize instead. I was hired by the King County Council to assess the shelter. My advice: Hire supervisors who are not part of the same union so as to eliminate conflicts of interest; all staff should be given a checklist of assigned duties; and supervisors should double check that those duties have been done. In a letter to the King County Council, PETA told officials not to listen to me because I was “radical.” Read the full article Written By: Nathan J. Winograd (Huffington Post, Director, No Kill Advocacy Center):”

Dean Winchester is 100% right.

As always the show tries to make it seem like Dean is on the wrong side, or is his actions and words are wrong or as he’s being too emotional, or unfair to the people around him (i.e: Sam, case, Mary) or as if he’s just selfish or stubborn not to support their ideas, their quest,their missions. They try (and sadly Successfully it does work on most fans) to make him out/to paint him as the bad guy, or someone who doesn’t understand or respect their perspective.

The thing is Dean does he understands better than anyone because he’s been doing his whole life, support his family and friends agendas/missions, and because he’s the one who’s always supporting their missions (never actually leading) he’s the ONLY ONE who goes into any of these missions CLEAR HEADED, he’s the ONE WHO NOTICES THE BAD SINGS, who is NOT so focused on the missions he loses the bigger picture or the possible consequences of these missions, he’s the ONLY one who spots that there’s something more to this than what it seems, he’s the only one who can actually sense when someone is playing him or any of his family members or friends, he’s the only who sees things for what they truly are and not what the others hope/believe to be.

And because of this he’s always on outside, he’s always the “bad guy”, he’s always “not supporting his friends and family’s missions agendas”, he’s always being too hard on his loved ones. The REALITY is he’s the ONLY one who’s LOOKING OUT FOR THEM, he’s the ONLY one who always TRIES HIS BEST TO AVOIDE further dangerous consequences for everyone’s actions/missions.

Examples: in S3 (and throughout S4) when he learned that ruby is a demon he has been warring sam NOT to trust her, warning him NOT use his powers, telling him over and over again that she’s manipulating him, twisting his fear (that his demonic powers would make him a bad person) into making it seem as if his demonic piers are good/can be used for good, telling Sam that god and angles told him (Dean) to stop Sam from using his powers more than once, and DEAN was 100% RIGHT because ruby was part of Lilith’s plan ALL ALONG.

In S11 yet again he was telling Sam over and over NOT to listen to the voices/visions he was seeing that they weren’t from god, telling him that there something NOT right about the whole thing, Sam yet again ignored him and because of Sam, Lucifer GOT OUT OF HIS CAGE AND NOW WE HAVE THE OMEN/ROSEMARY’S BABY ON THE WAY.

Now it’s happing all over again in S12 with the BMOL, Dean does NOT trust them for obvious reasons, and now both Mary & Sam are nothing more than their earn boy/girl who NEVER question anything and just follow orders blindly and Sam is acting as he’s on the right side by trying to convince dean to join this mission just as blindly as he & Mary are.

Dean was 100% RIGHT in telling Mary to ACT LIKE THEIR MOTHER, not to take care of them or cut the crust or whatever childish things, but to ACT LIKE THEIR MOTHER AND SUPPORTS THEM AND TRUST THEM more than a bunch of STRANGERS who for all she knows are the bad guy, that’s what he meant when he said she should ACT LIKE THEIR MOTHER, NOT actually be a mommy and take care of them or any of the other motherly things, because Dean has been TAKING CARE OF HIMSEF AND HIS BROTHER AND HIS FATHER SINCE HE WAS 4 YEARS OLD. So sure as hell had EVERY RIGHT TO BE MAD AT HIS MOTHER and it was 100% WRONG to make him apologize for what he said.

When he asked Sam to choose a side, he was actually asking him to pick HIS SIDE FOR ONCE IN HIS LIFE, because Sam just as Mary, John, an case have ALWYS CHOSEN THEIR OWN SIDES OR THE SIDE OF A COMPLETE STRANGER/DEMON, and it was ALWAYS THE WRONG side. So when Dean asked Sam to pick a side he was actually asking for ONCE to pick his side, to trust him on suspension about the BMOL, but the end of the day Sam STILL AS USUAL PICKED BUNCH OF STRANGERS OVER HIS OWN BROTHER.

We all know by the end of S12 the BMOL will turn out to be the bad guys in some way or the other, and we all know Sam & Mary yet again will be have the rug pulled from under them especially Sam.

So if anyone even dares to blame Dean Winchester when things blow up in their faces (like we all know it will) for anything what so ever, i will go crazy post on your asses reminding of all the MANY MANY OTHER TIMES DEAN WINCHESTER WAS 100% RIGHT AND WARNED THE IDIOTS NOT TO DO SOMETHING IDIOTIC. So all this oh let’s blame Dean for this and that NEEDS TO STOP BECAUSE DEAN FREAKING WINCHESTER IS ALWYS ALWYS ALWAYS NOT MATTER WHAT 100% RIGHT.

Cases like this are why vetblrs and clinics you may ask for advice are never going to say ‘it’s probably nothing, don’t worry about it.’ All of these cases are cases I have worked with at my emergency clinic, and they all initially sound like nothing spectacular. But on on investigation it was clear there was definitely something spectacularly wrong. 

Not all dogs read the vet books where they are supposed to look like they’re dying when they’re dying (and especially not cats). Don’t get annoyed at your vet or vetblr for saying to get a consultation because you cannot know exactly what is going on with the animal without actually looking at the animal! 

So if you are getting the feeling that something is wrong with an animal, please do not ask a vetblr for advice and please do not ask a vet clinic to diagnose something over the phone. Get a consultation with a vet so they can work the case up properly!

  • Sister: Can you imagine if humans only had one hole for reproduction and defecating so that when you're born you're a literal shit come to life. So when your parents call you a "little shit" it's accurate, it has more significance than your numerous failures.
  • Me: ................How high are you?
  • Sister: No it's hi, how are you?
  • Me: .....
  • Sister: Little shit.

IT IS FINALLY DONE! I wanted to make something for these two for a while, I thought this clip really suited Able and Elymas maybe as an early interaction when Able was still new to the beautiful world of foul language!

Hope you all enjoy!! :)

Getting the message across

This is an old tale from my early years as a Veterinarian. I was in my first job, and the senior vet who mentored me was not a patient woman. She was a good vet, compassionate, clever and understanding, but she would always call a spade a spade, and if something was shit she wouldn’t call it fertilizer.

We had a patient in hospital that had a number of medical issues. To summarize, this middle aged dog:

  • Had been clipped 3 years ago and the fur never grew back
  • Was owned by a human physician and nurse who honestly believed dog fur didn’t grow back after it was cut in their special breed
  • Was subsequently diagnosed with hypothyroidism
  • Was obese, and getting lots of human food and ‘home remedies’
  • Had stopped eating, then defecating, three days ago.

When he came to us he was quickly diagnosed with a severe case of pancreatitis, which for those readers who don’t know is potentially life threatening and is often triggered by fatty food in dogs. The senior vet had been trying to explain this to his owners, medical people themselves who should have a basic level of understanding, and I saw her storming out of the consult room they were visiting their dog in. She was shaking her head and looked about ready to scream.

“They just don’t get it. They just don’t. The silly woman just thinks he’s constipated and wants to take him home. She’s been force feeding him olive oil for the last three days! They don’t understand that he could die. I can’t deal with them anymore,” she said.

“That’s ok,” I replied, “Give me his blood results and I’ll give it a go.”

Okay, fair warning, this one is kind of gross, but it’s been bugging the hell out of me, so I’m just going to put it out there.

You know how, in a lot of traditional dungeon-crawling CRPGs, there’s a sewer dungeon, full of poisonous monsters and toxic sludge and whatnot?

Sometimes this dungeon is beneath an inhabited city, and that’s fine - but sometimes, the sewer is part of a set of ancient ruins.

The trouble is, well, sewage decomposes. If the ruins have literally been abandoned for centuries, then unless the sewers subsequently became a roosting area for a large bat colony or whatnot, any major toxicity should have long since subsided. And even that’s ignoring the fact that the layout of such areas tends to depict a continuing inflow of sewage in volumes that could only be generated by a densely populated settlement.

Yet the ruins above are almost entirely empty.

So we have a very awkward question on our hands: who - or what - is doing all the pooping?

There is nothing wrong with pulling down your pants in a Walmart parking lot and ripping a shit right then and there. Defecating is a perfectly natural and common experience shared among all species. No one should be shamed for expelling the content of their bowels as we are all animals and animals shit freely anywhere they want without shame. It is not “dirty” or “disgusting” or wrong. It is natural and healthy.


A note left on the wall by serial killer William Heirens (more commonly known as the lipstick killer) at the scene of the murder of his second victim Frances Brown (33).

Harry S. Truman was the President of the United States when Lipstick Killer William Heirens first confessed to his crimes. He then spent 65 years in prison for the serial killing of three women in the Chicago area before dying in March 2012 age 83.

The victims of Heirens were Josephine Ross, Frances Brown and six year old Suzanne Degnan. Josephine Ross had her face covered before being stabbed to death. Frances Brown was shot and stabbed to death. Suzanne Degnan was dismembered.

The Lipstick Killer appeared to have an uncontrollable urge to attack and kill women. Although Heirens was convicted of the Lipstick Killer murders he later recanted his initial confession to police claiming he was coerced into confessing by police brutality. However, it was recorded that the Lipstick Killer urinated and defecated in the apartments of the women he murdered - which Heirens also did in the apartments he burgled prior.


Casual things: Go poop with your katana (I love his purple toilet rug / brush). 

- Hey Sonic, I need some toiled paper, where do you keep it? 

- On the top shelf, in the bathroom.

 - Oh, yes, next to your NINJA SHIT?!… ( That shitty thing with metal claws can fall on me while I defecate my dude…).

Things to do: 

 - Laundry ✓ 

- Buy the dinner ✓ 

- Visit Frank and Ino ✓ 

- Search a photo of Saitama on internet to place on my door ✓

I was packing up to go home, my shift being over for about an hour ago and I was finally done with all my medical charts and call backs. A receptionist asked me if I could talk to a woman on the phone whose cat I had seen several months prior. Normally I would stay and talk but it was my boyfriend and my 1 year anniversary and I had dinner reservations so I asked if someone else could speak to her. The receptionist came back and said no other doctor was available and the client urgently needed to speak to me, begrudgingly I picked up the phone.

The owner’s cat was acting “unusual” and she didn’t know why. When asked if she was giving the medication she was prescribed at the last visit she told me no. The cat was eating, drinking, urinating, defecating, all normally and had no wounds, bleeding, masses, etc. so I told the owner she could make an appointment and see me first thing in the morning. She became very upset and I said I was very sorry but I was off the clock and had a very important event I was going to be late for so she could either make an appointment or was welcome to go to the emergency hospital tonight if she was that concerned. Upset she hung up and I began to head out.

As I was going out the door my boss motioned for me, the owner had called back upset and was threatening to complain via social media, so I had to see her. The other vets were too busy and this had to be handled. She would be here in 10 minutes. Upset, I made my way back in and waited.

Forty five minutes later the client showed up and said she was told there would be exam fee for her “inconvenience” earlier. I didn’t argue because I wanted to get to my dinner. I did a complete examination and found nothing wrong. The owner could only tell me the cat was “off” but couldn’t explain how. The owner declined lab work, radiographs, a fecal analysis, and everything else I offered. Grasping at straws I offered a Cerenia injection in case the cat was feel nauseated. The owner agreed and I gave the injection and she went up front. I gathered my belongings again and proceeded to leave, now late for my reservation, when the receptionist came back to tell me the client didn’t have her wallet. “Just tell her to call with her credit card tomorrow” I said.

Moments later the receptionist was back, the owner had no credit card. I went up front.

“Ma’am… I understand you are worried about your cat. But you are telling me  you came here without any money and no way of ever paying this bill?”

She began to cry. My phone vibrated and I looked, my boyfriend was texting me to say the restaurant couldn’t hold our place any longer and we had lost our table. I took my wallet out and told the receptionist I would just pay the bill. The owner said thank you and left. I went home and we ordered a pizza.

A few weeks later I got an email informing me someone had left a negative review about me. I looked, it was the owner of the cat. Her review said that I didn’t seem concerned about her cat and that I had been looking at my phone during the appointment.

Sometimes you just have to shake it off and go about your day as best you can.
