Saturday night with the fur babies.
I would rather have my taxes go to every single ‘welfare queen’ in the united states twice over than to drone programs and corporate subsidies.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture that so fully summed up what it is to be a cat owner.
Women are socialized to make men feel good. We’re socialized to “let you down easy.” We’re not socialized to say a clear and direct “no.” We’re socialized to speak in hints and boost egos and let people save face. People who don’t respect the social contract (rapists, predators, assholes, pickup artists) are good at taking advantage of this. “No” is something we have to learn. “No” is something we have to earn. In fact, I’d argue that the ability to just say “no” to something, without further comment, apology, explanation, guilt, or thinking about it is one of the great rites of passage in growing up, and when you start saying it and saying it regularly the world often pushes back. And calls you names.
Someone is wiped out after long walk and dog park time.
Found this little guy late Thursday night by Holbrook and St. Aubin. He didn’t have any identification so we took him home, cleaned him up and let him curl up on the couch for the night. Dropped him off at the shelter in the morning, if you know him or know someone that knows him please contact the Michigan Ant-Cruelty Society on Jos Campau in Detroit at (313) 891-7188. We’re all rooting for him. If you live in the Detroit/Hamtramck area please consider giving this post some legs so the word gets around.
