hey, a friend of mine rescued this incredible kitten and she’s having a really rough time of it. it’s a miracle the kitten has survived this long but she’s a real fighter and we think she’ll pull through. however, vet bills are a nightmare and the kitten is in the ICU right now, and my friend really needs help. please reblog if you can’t donate and hopefully some kind people on here will be able to help her out! thank you!

Please please help Saja! He needs an MRI and it’s super expensive, but let’s give this kitty another chance!

hey so i'm working my way to being vegan and i was wondering what you would suggest for a dairy free coffee creamer?

i actually drink my coffee black so i’m maybe not the best vegan to ask … i know you can get them soy or almond based though. anyone else have a suggestion?

Hi. So. I here you're vegan. I'm currently a vegetarian, and am wondering if you think it's okay to only eat free range, organic, eggs (not the store bought kind. The, I've seen these chickens and have been to this farm 20 minutes away kind) and only organic grass-fed milk (the same type as the eggs,) and not eat any others? Like, does it clear up some of the moral stuff? Thanks :)

No, I don’t — I know it seems harmless on the surface, but think of it this way: where did the chickens come from? Are they 50% female and 50% male? Most likely, they’re 95-100% female, because the males were killed (just google “male chicks in the egg industry”). Additionally, chickens are naturally a bit cannibalistic and will usually eat their own eggs — depriving them of them can drain the chicken of essential proteins and nutrients.

Same with milk — if you and other consumers are drinking the milk, what is the baby cow drinking? Cheap substitutes for a few days before it’s slaughtered for veal, most likely. And what happens to the cow when she’s too worn out to be useful anymore? Most likely, slaughter again. No matter how nicely you try to do it, you are still exploiting an animal and using her body for your own gain — a grass-fed organic dairy cow is still being forcibly impregnated, having her baby taken away, and being milked by machines multiple times a day, which causes a huge strain on her body.

So no, I don’t think using animals in either of these cases can ever be a morally okay thing to do.

The evening routine

update on the kittens i was fundraising for: they have all mutated into giant eating machines

good news is, they’re fit and healthy. bad news is, my apartment is a wild jungle, and nothing and nobody is safe

okay i know tumblr has done some crazy fundraising in the past, so here’s my situation:

mama cat Sadie and her six baby kittens were rescued by my friend’s coworker from the streets of Seoul. because of his allergies, he couldn’t take them into his apartment so he was feeding them behind the building, but the landlord threatened to take them to a shelter, and because almost all shelters here in Korea are kill shelters, they would have been euthanized after ten days. so rather than let that happen, i took them into my home.

these cute kitties have a second chance at life, but the vet bills for seven cats is a bit more than i can handle alone. i’ve taken them for a basic checkup and gotten them tested for common street viruses (that first bill was 422,000 won, approx. $400), but they still all need vaccinations before they get adopted, and Sadie needs to be spayed. add that to the price of food, kitty litter, and other basic cat supplies that i’ve had to buy and you can see how my bank account is all but empty — i live alone and support myself, and i’m still paying off college loans too. and they’re getting big enough to be vaccinated and adopted soon, since i really can’t have seven full-grown cats in my studio apartment!

so my fundraising goal is $100 per kitty plus $250 for Sadie’s spay surgery, for a total of $950. think these cute kitties can get 950 notes with their pictures? if everyone who reblogs donates just a dollar, we can reach this goal in no time!

i’ll be hugely grateful for any donations at all, and if i’m super lucky and raise more than i need, any extra after care of this cat family will go to the Yangju animal shelter, which is a no-kill shelter a few hours from my home that i’ve volunteered at and takes very good care of its animals.

if you can’t donate, please signal boost with a reblog!

thank you so much!

(also let me know if you know someone looking to adopt a kitten! international adoptions are possible for responsible, caring cat-lovers. thank you!)

tl;dr baby kittens need your support! please donate here. every little bit helps! thank you!

hey guys, there’s been a bit of a snag — when the vet told me 38 per cat for vaccines, what he meant was 38 per cat, per day, which means each of the three visits — this means instead of paying 266 for vaccinations, it will be more like 798. that, plus Sadie’s spay surgery at 250, blood work 55, and original health check 422, i’m looking at over 1,500 in vet bills, and that’s not to mention food and supplies (i had to buy a second litter box today, they’re getting too big to share the same one between all of them now, and they go through food and litter fast. all told, i’m estimating their total cost to me will be around $2,000).

i’m starting several fundraisers here in Korea including a bake sale and selling jello shots at events, but at this point i really can just use all the help i can get. please please please if you can spare a few bucks, please send them to Sadie and her babies. it’s kitten season so even though lots of people are adopting kittens, there are so many available there’s no telling how long i’ll have these ones. i can’t let them go back to the streets or to a shelter where they’ll be euthanized after ten days, but i also can’t do this alone. thank you.

they got their second vaccination yesterday and i still need a lot of help — please donate if you can.
