"Animals run no risk of going to hell, they are there already"  Victor Hugo

I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior. - Hippolyte Taine 

Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat. - Notebook, 1894 - Mark Twain

(There are more people who don’t like the cat compared to the dog; the much misunderstood cat is actually not subservient but is not independent either; there is a difference.  Cats need their humans and other pets around them, and don’t like being kept alone in the dark with no sounds.  If the human behaves like a jerk the cat will lose respect.  


"While the exact reasons for intentional animal cruelty may vary, nine typologies have been identified by Kellert and Felthous (1985, 1122-1124). In the cases within the animal cruelty database, we see these typologies over and over":

  1. to retaliate against an animal
  2. to retaliate against another person
  3. to satisfy a prejudice against a species or breed 
  4. to express anger through an animal        
  5. to enhance one's own aggressiveness
  6. to shock people for amusement
  7. to displace hostility from a person to an animal
  8. to perform non-specific sadism

Apart the terrible cost of human life as a result of the hurricanes in Puerto Rico, animals have suffered too; according to some environmentalists this destruction may prove to be disastrous for the rest of us too:

The FBI is now, at last, taking animal abuse very seriously; it’s the precursor to abuse towards children and women, and finally leads to serial killers

Adolf Hitler loved animals and was a vegetarian......but he hated cats; most likely cats hated him.


So much more exciting than bull fighting:

Minoan Bull Leaper

Spanish Bull Leapers

BULLFIGHTERS CAN’T DO THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE COWARDS; BULLS ARE COMPROMISED - POSSIBLY INJURED FROM THE BEGINNING, AND THERE’S MORE THAN ONE PERSON INVOLVED IN KILLING A BULL; ALSO BULLFIGHTERS MAY NOT BE AS FIT


CRUEL TRADITIONS:

Bullfighting in Catalonia

Spanish Court overturns bullfighting ban - TRADITION BE DAMNED

Vietnam’s pig festival, another pathetic tradition said to bring luck and fortune; you would have thought by now they’d see it doesn’t work - societies which follow such centuries old bloody traditions should change, but some humans are utterly stupid


What really angers me is the pleasure these (Danish?) gawkers get in watching the slaughter,  then afterwards inspecting, and amusing themselves with the dead whales - look at their smiling faces - If this is a 1000 years old tradition I expect only to see aboriginals following their tradition and not some dumb caucasians with their children enjoying this; these people must lead really boring lives; their taxes are too high:
