Make a Difference Friday

After seeing The Furry Fighter's post I knew I couldn't keep quiet.
After decades of military dictatorship, the people of Burma are not "jumping through the hoop" anymore and they need all the help they can get!

You can sign a
petition here and an Appeal to the UN Security Council here.
This
blog shows you the few pictures that make it out of Burma.
And here is a
related story on BBC.

Karl,

You are one well-informed cat. I'll check out the petition and the blog. It's about time something happened, but I'm concerned there's going to be a military backlash. Let's keep the paws crossed that there isnt.

Take care, buddy.

Goob love,
Stanley

Cool photo! There are some really lovely looking cats that hang out at the Temples in Burma, they look kind of like Abyssinians in that their coats are ticked, but they have interesting markings too... A place with cats as nice looking as that deserves to be free! :)

When you see what happens in other parts of the world,why don't people appreciate how good we have it here?
It is so sad what is going on there.

Hi Karl! Thanks for your comment. :) None of the food I eat has any grains in it, except a bit of rice in my wet food. My dry food is grain-free and my wet food is 75% fresh meat or fish, 24% cooking water and 1% rice.

Both my dry food and wet food are 100% organic, hormone-free, antibiotic-free. Pet food here in Germany is very tightly regulated, and must be made from human-grade ingredients. On top of that, I'm fed top-of-the-line foods, since I have a fussy tummy and just throw up cheaper foods. But thanks for all the information! It seems that bad teeth are just something Sphynx are prone to having. I even get teeth-cleaning treats every day, but they don't seem to help much.

Great blog Karl. Love the pics.
Thanks for the comments on my blog too. I agree with them 100%. I have 3 cats that are also on the raw diet and they love it, well 2 of them do; the finicky middle one does some days, and others not so much. But my 18 year old and 1 year old love it, and their fur is so soft and shiny. Keep up the good work

The Devil Dog said...
