Cat nurse, Cat Safety, How to Nurse a Cat
Because we have a family of special-needs cats living in our
home, over the years we've located a variety of online resources
in such areas as pet emergencies and first aid, adoptions, traveling
with cats ,bereavement, health and behavior problems, and so on.
This part of the web site provides links to online information and
resources for (1) cats, and other companion animals; (2)special-needs
animals; (3) therapy, guide, hearing, and other service, working,
or assistance animals.
I believe that cats have souls, just like dogs and other thinking
creatures. They seem to have feelings and thoughts. Cats are intelligent
living creatures that, like all creatures, deserve to be healthy
Oppose the Killing of Cats
These poor animals have spent 3 days and 3 nights, squashed together
in tiny cages, unable to move, without food, water or shelter. The
cats are then brutally lifted by the neck and hurled into a cage
by a man wielding a metal tongs. Here they fight through fear, hunger
and desperation to survive whilst awaiting a horrendously slow death
in order to provide meat for restaurants in Guangzhou.

Cat Fur Trade and Cat Meat Trade
cat fur still on sale despite community outrage.The investigation
showed how every year millions of cats and dogs are living in cruel
conditions, are tormented and then skinned alive, strangled or stabbed
solely for the money that can be gained from their furs and skins.The
degree of cruelty being inflicted on these cats and dogs is unspeakable.
Some of these animals are actually being skinned alive. Some of
them are still alive for up to ten minutes after they have been
skinned. To many people here, keeping cats as cherished pets is
an act of folly. cats are reared for one reason: Around 2 million
cats(stray cats) are slaughtered for food annually. Cats, Dogs,
Rabbits and almost any animal is used as food. The way these animals
are treated is with cruelty and abuse. Most often these animals
are either boiled alive, skinned alive or beaten to death in a cage.
Cats and dogs that were once someone's pets, rounded
up, transported in sacks and crates. Some are held in dingy, dark
unheated buildings during the bitter winter of northern China, often
without food or water.
Dogs and cats are internationally considered pets, with few exceptions,
and trust us to protect and care for them, yet each year more than
2 million domestic dogs and cats are brutally killed for their fur.
In the Philippines, investigators visited a cat slaughterhouse
where as many as 100 cats are killed on one day. Some of the animals
are strays, while most are stolen pets. Investigators witnessed cats
from the neck by ropes, while other cats watched helplessly.The home
owner's business apparently exported the cats' fur to Japan (where
it was used as lining for boots, purses and coats) and sold the flesh
as meat to be ground into sausage.
|How to avoid Such cruelty!
This is the reality of the fur trade. The trade does not care whether
the animals they kill are wild animals, are bred specifically for
their fur, or are stolen pets from someone's garden. Those in the
fur trade have no conscience, no morals. They are governed by greed
We are against the cat and dog fur trade! This act of slaughtering
animals for their fur and skin is horrific!
(1) we urge government to pass National Animal Welfare Laws to
protect cats and other fur bearing animals.
(2) Through individual efforts to protect the cats and animals .
(3)The most ethical and humane stand is to not sell any fur whether
it is cat, dog, rabbit, or any unfortunate animal.
(4) Most of all - changing people's thinking about animals - enhancing
compassion, enhancing ethics, demonstrating how compassion for animals
is integral to a compassionate society and how in very pragmatic
terms, compassion for animals reduces bullying and violence in families
