Pugs are not cute

Pugs are not cute.
Pugs are malformed, inbred, sick animals that should never have existed.

(Above: pug and wolf skulls. Note the shallow eye sockets, crowded, protruding teeth, and short snout in the pug.)

  • Dogs pant to cool themselves. As pugs have practically no snouts, they have trouble cooling their bodies and they can suffer from organ failure as a result.
  • Pugs are often unable to breathe properly due to their short snouts and compact breathing passages. This inhibits their ability to do things that dogs like best - running, chasing things, playing.
  • Pugs suffer from a mangled jaw from which their teeth grow in all directions.
  • Because of the distorted shape of their skulls, their eyes commonly pop out of their heads. 60% of prolapsed eyes become blind. Eyes put back in the skull are prone to infection and the dog may need treatment for the rest of their life.
  • Their eyes are also prone to swelling painfully, becoming scratched, and being irritated by their eyelashes.
  • When excited, pugs are prone to getting fluid stuck in their throats, making them choke or gasp for breath. This is given the cutesy nick name “reverse sneezing”. [video]
  • As it can be difficult for pugs to exercise, they are prone to obesity.
  • Some pugs are born with their nostrils pinched almost shut, making it impossible for them to live without an operation.
  • The wrinkles on their faces will become infected without constant, careful cleaning by their caretaker.
  • About 64% of pugs suffer from hip dysplasia (malformed hip sockets) which causes crippling lameness and painful arthritis.
  • Pugs have a genetic weakness to demodectic mange (a pretty nasty skin condition caused by mites).
  • Their curled tail makes them susceptible to hemivertibrae - misshapen backbones which cause spine bending and instability, neurological disorders, back leg paralysis, incontinence, and pain.
  • Pugs are so inbred that a study of ten thousand pugs in the UK had the genetic makeup of only 50 individuals. Inbreeding means that defective genes are more likely to be expressed and passed on to offspring.
  • Necrotizing meningoencephalitis (brain swelling) is common among pugs. Dogs with this condition usually die within a few weeks. 

I am so sick of seeing pugs being celebrated.
Their small, squashed skulls, facial wrinkles, curled tails, and protruding eyes are actually valued when these characteristics are a cruelty in themselves.

Pugs are charming, sweet, funny little souls and they don’t deserve the bodies humanity has designed for them.

Stop celebrating pugs.
Stop buying pugs.

Meet AutistiCat! 

I’ve been seeing a lot of conversation lately about how much autistic people relate to cats and how we should have a cat as our symbol instead of the dreaded puzzle piece or the rainbow infinity symbol alone since that’s a general neurodiversity symbol. So I created AutistiCat whom I propose for our new symbol!

AutistiCat has the rainbow infinity sign as a bow tie to represent neurodiversity and is a silhouette of a black cat to represent us autistic people with its tail curled into a heart to represent the love within the autistic community and to counter the stereotypes that we are loveless, emotionless robots. 

Use AutistiCat however you please! I would love for this to catch on as the symbol of autism so that we can have our own symbol that isn’t steeped in ableism. 

Make this your profile pic! Use it as a banner! Make art with it! Spread it around!

Let’s make this catch on as our symbol!

Guess the breed(s)! 

This is Sheba (@tundratails). She’s a rescue, estimated four years old. She’s 58 lbs and is incredibly active. She loves running and howls when she doesn’t get her way. She has a high prey-drive, but listens very well. She is food motivated, but not toy motivated and has a good off-switch. She sheds a lot and her tail curls over her back when she’s excited. She’s dog tolerant and aloof towards strangers, but is very cuddly and likes to be the center of attention with those that she’s comfortable with. 

Captivated - by @sunrow

Damen approached the lounge to find Laurent curled up on the pillows wearing nothing but Damen’s black sweatshirt, his tail curling side to side. The sun streamed in on him, highlighting his gold hair and sharp cheeks, and Damen, overwhelmed by love and adoration, crossed his arms over the back of the lounge and rested his head against them so he could watch Laurent.
A few minutes passed before Laurent’s tail slowed its movements and he peeked his eyes open, looking straight up at Damen.

“Enjoying the view?”

“Mm-hmm, very much so.” Damen grinned, then reached down and pulled at the sleeve of the sweatshirt. “Is that my hoodie?”

“It’s mine now.”

My art for the CaPri Big Bang 2k17! I’ve always wanted to draw kitty!Laurent, because he has such a cat-like persona: Hissy at first, but once he grows comfortable, he might curl up next to you (possibly while softly purring). I saw the chance when I saw sunrow’s wonderful story and took it!

Extremely Rare Viking Gilt Freya Mount, 9th-10th Century AD

A parcel-gilt silver plaque pendant with facing seated figure, probably the goddess Freya, modeled in the half-round; the hands raised to grip lateral ribbed strands of hair, the garment formed as two crossed bands on the chest, the knees prominent and feet placed together; emerging from each strand of hair a feline with curled tail, ribbed body, foreleg curled over the neck, notched fingers and triangular face with lappet and snubbed snout; loop above the head, three holes to the edges.

The figure represents a seated female accompanied by two cats. In the Icelandic poem Gylfaginning (The Deceiving of Gylfi), Freya is said to be seated in her chariot drawn by two cats. Her hall in heaven is called Sessrumnir, meaning “with room for many seats.” She is also associated with a high-seat from which prophecy is made, similar to that of Odin.

Four, three, two, fuck you

Listen up y'all, this shit is ironic

Strider’s beats are best suited to trolls hooked on phonics

Karkalicious definition makes Terezi loco
She wants to know the secrets that she can’t taste in my photo

Dyin’ just to know the flavor

I ain’t doin’ her no favors

No reasons why I tease

Her flush just comes and goes like seasons

I’m Karkalicious (so delicious)

No, I don’t do kismesis

And if you read any fanfics

All that shit is fictitious

I blow kisses (mwah!)

Don’t matter if we’re just moirails

Trolls be lining down the veil for a chance to fill a pail



(Four, three, two, fuck you)
So delicious (super sweet)

So delicious (fuckin’ adorabloodthirsty)

So delicious (even egbert wants a piece of me)

I’m Karkalicious (l-l-l-l-like candy, candy)

Karkalicious def-,

Karkalicious def-,

Karkalicious def-
Goddammit, doc scratch, stop fucking around with my mic-

Karkalicious definition makes the shippers crazy

Nepeta’s always squealin’ cutsey pet names like Karkitty

I’m the K to the A, R, K, the A, the T,

And the majority of pairings had better include me

I’m Karkalicious (so delicious)

My body stays vicious

All the highbloods feelin’ nervous ‘cuz I’m doing some fitness

Zahhak’s my witness (*whistle*)

Bet that ship curls Nepeta’s tail

And he’ll be needing all the towels ‘cuz I'mma make him sweat pails

(Four, three, two, fuck you)

So delicious (super sweet)

So delicious (fuckin’ adorabloodthirsty)

So delicious (even egbert wants a piece of me)

I’m Karkalicious

Baby, baby, baby,

Honey get some patience,

Maybe then you’ll get a taste

I’ll be tasty, tasty,

I’ll be laced with lacy,

It’s so tasty, tasty,

It’ll make you crazy

T, to the A, to the S T E Y - fuckin’ tasty
T, to the A, to the S T E Y - fuckin’ tasty

D, to the E, to the L I C I O U S
To the D, to the E, to the, to the, to the-
I’ll just spell it out for you!

All the time I turn around trolls gather round
Always sniffin’ at me, wanna guess the color of my blood

I just wanna say it now I ain’t trying to round up any drama, little fucker, I just don’t want you to know

And I guess I’m coming off as just a little insecure although I keep on repeating how the secret’s fucking awesome

But I’m tryin’ to tell, it’s a secret that I just don’t wanna tell

Terezi says I smell delicious (so delicious)

No, I don’t do kismesis

And if you read any fanfics

All that shit is fictitious

I blow kisses (mwah!)

Don’t matter if we’re just moirails

Trolls be lining down the veil for a chance to fill a pail

Four, three, two, fuck you

My body stays vicious

Zahhak’s been feeling nervous 'cuz I got down to business

Nepeta’s my witness (meow~!)

I’ll even let her first ship sail

Just watch that kitten be the first in line to fill a pail

So delicious (Eridan, see)

So delicious (you can trust me)

So delicious (I’ll help you be)

I’m Karkalicious (l-l-like candy, candy)

It’s so delicious (ay, ay, ay, ay)

So delicious (ay, ay, ay, ay)

So delicious (ay, ay, ay, ay)

I’m Karkalicious, (she says my blood is like candy, candy)

T, to the A, to the S T E Y - fuckin’ tasty
T, to the A, to the S T E Y - fuckin’ tasty

T, to the A, to the S T E Y - fuckin’ tasty
T, to the A, to the, to the, to the, to the
To the D, to the E, to the L I C I O U S
To the D, to the E, to the L I C I O U S
To the D, to the E, to the L I C I O U S
To the D, to the E, to the-
Now, wait just a motherfucking second!

Do I seriously have to spell this shit until the end of the fucking song?
I mean, whoever fucking wrote the original never had access to spellcheck I guess
Because T-A-S-T-E-Y does NOT spell “tasty.” Was this Fergie douchemuffin illiterate or something?
What do you mean human rap artists are the only ones brave enough to write their own grammatical trainwrecks and call it music!? What the fuck even is Will Smith doing?
He doesn’t throw down sick fires anymore!?
Fuck this shit, I quit.

**Okay, this wasn’t at all how this chapter was supposed to be, but~ it’s how it is now. Anywhoo~ I hope you enjoy this chapter, and please~ tell me how you guys feel about it.

Masterlist

Prev.


Previously: Once at the apartment, you opened the trunk and back seat, grabbing as many bags as you could. Suddenly, you found it hard to carry what you had taken, your grip starting to loosen. Looking at Jungkook, you saw him having a hard time, struggling to keep everything in his hands.. Walking into the hallway, you felt everything slipping. You were sure you were going to drop the items, Jungkook unable to do anything with his hands full as well. Bracing yourself for the crash of everything you closed your eyes, waiting to hear it all fall. After you waited for a second, nothing  happened. Slowly you opened your eyes, shocked to see who had save everything from the ground.

The leopard hybrid and girl from earlier this morning


Your eyes locked with the leopards, not breaking away even for a second. You got lost in their color; various shades of blue and gray, resembling that of the icy world his hybrid genes came from. As you looked into them, they didn’t hold the same anger they had in the mall, instead they looked soft, almost gentle as he looked you over.

He gazed into your eyes, just as curious about you as you were about him. You reminded him of his owner, not holding the same entitled stare that other hybrid owners held. You seemed smart, someone with a lot of knowledge in their head, yet there was a hint of ignorance hidden within too. For a second, that’s all that you both did, analyzing each other from what you could see.

💕So I fell in love with this little articulated chameleon today! Just look at his cute lil tail curl💕

Hello! I work for my school’s natural history collections so I understand all the laws and have all the permits I need to care for my dead things. This piece is not a personal collection piece, but the schools.
