Presenting – Miss Jules and some thoughts about adoption♥

Presenting – Miss Jules and some thoughts about adoption♥

In mid December, my husband and I made the significant decision to add two more cats to our home.   We visited our local Animal Shelter and made our choice after going over all the details, expense and joys this would bring us. That’s how we came to know Miss Jules.  And her brother Jack.   In case you missed that post a few weeks back, the two 9 month old kitties we choose arrived at the Shelter in July of 2014 at just 2 month old.  Brother and Sister.   They were marked as “Strays” but were more likely dropped off by someone who couldn’t handle the kittens. Each year,  in the U. S. alone, about 3.5 million cats are taken to shelters across the country for care.  Of those, 1.5 million are then euthanized eventually.  The shelter in our county shares their building with the Police Animal Services and has a ‘no kill’ policy for the animals kept there.  This policy is rare though for an animal shelter in the    U.

If Cows could talk:

If Cows could talk:

 Three years ago, when I stopped eating all dairy products in an attempt to reverse swelling in my joints, it never occurred to me that the animals who had been providing me with all that yummy cheese, milk and cream for the previous 47 years had lived horrific lives filled with more pain than my own joints ever thought of enduring.  I was oblivious, as most of the world is, to the hell inflicted on Cows in our world.  The daily constant pains and restrictions they are forced to endure by the Dairy industry are unthinkable.   Don’t care about what cows are subjected to?  Maybe you would rather consider the lies we’ve all been filled with in the last few decades.   Like all animal protein, milk acidifies the body pH which in turn triggers a biological correction. You see, calcium is an excellent acid neutralizer and the biggest storage of calcium in the body is – you guessed it… in the bones. So the very same calcium that our bones need to stay strong is utilized to neutralize the acidifying effect of milk. Once calcium is pulled out of the bones, it leaves the body via the urine, so…
