RE: Drudgeon

Just in case any of you reading that other blog I have, and are wondering why Drudgeon has her own name instead of being called by her species like everyone else, allow me to introduce her:

Or a full one:

Drudgeon is a shark sleeping bag, and is the best thing I have ever bought. There is nothing quite as comforting as crawling inside someone who loves you, and wants to keep you warm.

Human friends. I need your help.

Do you remember my friend Drudgeon, the great white shark? She is a kind soul. Sometimes she makes mistakes, sure. But she never bothers you if she can help it. But sometimes, mistakes are made, and people get hurt. And she is sorry for that.

But right now, a human in Australia wants to murder Drudgeon and her family. I understand why. He wants people to feel safe. He wants people to like him. But murdering another creature because you are afraid is not fair.

I beg you, human friends. Please stop him. Please. She’s my friend. This isn’t her fault. She can’t die because of fear. I will not allow it.

Some kind humans have made a place to put your name down here and here, to say that you do not want to do this. That you don’t condone it. That you are kind, and good, and understand better than to simply kill the things you fear.

If you find other places or sources to help stop this, please reblab and let me know. I need to save her. Please tell your friends, and ask them to help too.

Please.

A diver is swimming at the top right of the frame, slightly behind, in a black and blue wet suit and full diving gear. TEXT: “I’ll wait for you. Or I could slow down. If you want. It’s not a big deal. It’s not like I’m in love with you or anything. It’s just…you know…I’m happy you’re here, I guess. And I value our friendship. Aw crud, that sounded stupid. Pretend I didn’t say anything.”]

Drudgeon  is back again, because I know you all like her so much. Here she is with her lovely diver friend, Bothelo. He is a really nice man, and they are good friends. He takes lots of nice photos of her too. I think you should have a look, if you have time!
