    Seventy per cent of cats in RSPCA rehoming centres are black or black and white, down to a combination of factors including that they dont look good in photos. 70 per cent of more than 1,000 cats in RSPCA care homes in Britain are black or black and white. Black animals tend not to photograph as well as others, making prospective owners less likely to engage with them on rehoming websites instead gravitating to those with distinguishing markings. Superstition also plays a part in putting people off rehoming a black cat. In UK folklore black cats symbolise good luck, unless they cross in front…
  • Prejudice and Pit Bulls

    Dogs have a great capacity to forgive and forget. It’s a characteristic on display in so many cases where dogs have been dealt a terrible blow or bad hand from callous people. Despite their experiences, animals who’ve known only hardship so often come to trust again in the presence of people who really care. That’s why I was so struck by an article in the latest issue of Esquire magazine where the writer, Tom Junod, writes about his own experience with his adopted pit bull-type dogs. There is no credible evidence that shows pit bulls are overrepresented among classes or…

    This morning, I awoke to unseasonably cool weather in Washington, D.C. As the day progressed, we got a different kind of cool – the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals delivered a blow to the National Pork Producers Council’s efforts to keep consumers in the dark about where their food comes from and affirmed Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) rules adopted by Congress and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Consumers have a right to know where their meat is coming from so they can choose to avoid meat from inhumanely raised animals. Photo: The HSUS The USDA issued the rule last year,…

    The people who tried a full-on repeal of Prop B – the 2010 voter-approved ballot measure to crack down on cruelty to dogs in a state that had become notoriously known as the puppy mill capital of the United States– are now trying to pull a fast one on Missouri voters in a statewide vote next Tuesday, August 5th. The state has long had a statutory “right to farm” provision. Now, through Amendment 1, they want a “right to farm” provision in the state constitution, far more sweeping in effect, that reads in part that “farming and ranching practices shall be forever…

  • Time to Make a Racket About Ractopamine in U.S. Pigs

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:04 pm
    If you have any doubt about the contempt that some leaders within the pork industry have for their own customers – to say nothing of the pigs locked in gestation crates – the dispute over a dangerous animal drug named ractopamine should dispel it. On Monday, McClatchy reported that the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) is maneuvering to derail free trade talks with the European Union unless the EU agrees to accept imports of pork from pigs fed ractopamine. Ractopamine is a beta-agonist (a drug used to treat asthma in humans) that producers feed pigs, cattle and turkeys to induce…

    Body language is notoriously complex. This is all the more fraught with peril since cats are notoriously subtle, and humans are notoriously dim. Subtlety: 0%. Jazz hands: 50%. Think about the early days of film. If you watch oldies like The Maltese Falcon, you’ll immediately notice that everyone is acting awfully…well, dramatically. (And, debatably, just plain awfully.) There’s lots of gasping and flourishing and flailing about, where a simple raised eyebrow would do the job. But early movie audiences were used to the theater, where the distance from the stage can make such…

    There have been too many losses this past month. But somehow, loss never has the final word. We are different than we were pre-Jean Valjean, pre-Nimbus, pre-Janice, pre-Levi. While our sadness will ease, the grace they gave us will only grow. In times of sorrow, it’s easy to lose sight of these lasting riches. Sometimes we need the wisdom of a child to set us straight again. Leave it to a girl aptly named Grace: Where once our hearts were small and grey, now we see the colors. Where once we were curved in on ourselves like gnarled claws, now we’ve been raised up, arms…

    I’m the first to admit that “Catso” is a terrible name for a cat.  But, one of our first FIV+ cats arrived bearing this name.  He was a wonderful cat, so before too long the name grew on us. We recently received a donation to the Linda Fund from Catso’s adopters and this reminded me of this funny boy. Catso always reminded me of a cat constructed by a 3rd grader out of spare parts: it looked like a cat but the parts didn’t quite match.

Each one leaves paw prints on my heart. Some of those paws reach deeper than others. Levi’s paws did just that. Levi was found weaving and wandering the streets of central New Jersey. He had no identification and little ability to see or hear. As a feline senior citizen (15+…

This is one of many incidents of wildlife encountering traffic while looking for food, water and the company of friends. Mountain lions and bears have turned up in residential yards, at school or, as in the case of a baby lion, in a Santa Monica office building.

Ironically, this relatively unknown animal is among the most coveted, poached, and traded. News reports tell the tale: "officers seized 2.34 tonnes of [pangolin] scales in 115 bags," "250 kg of pangolin scales seized in France," "956 frozen pangolins found smuggled into China," ... story after story of pangolin scales and bodies bagged and smuggled across international…

The bill needed 60 votes to advance, but only received 41 in favor, and 56 opposed—a result of some Democrats opposing the bill because of its extreme provisions and Republicans uniting in opposition because they could not offer amendments on gun rights and other topics.
