Animal Testing

Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals and the answer is:
‘Because animals are like us.’

Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is:
‘Because the animals are not like us.’

Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.

Prof. Charles R. Magel

Here is some good information provided by Animals Australia on why we do not need animal testing.
That it is cruel and unethical is obvious to any sentient being, but it’s also not necessary

Another thing I Always Think of is:  Any person who donates to a medical charity is potentially assisting to fund research involving animals.

Missan&Missen Kattleksaker

Tanken med projektet är att tillverka och sälja kattleksaker men även andra produkter som kan attrahera kattälskare. Produkterna skall säljas till förmån för hemlösa katter i behov av ekonomiskt stöd.
Stödet är tänkt för att kunna bidra vid såväl en enskild katt i akut behov av veterinärvård som att stödja ett pågående TNR projekt. 

Produkterna kommer i första hand att säljas via Missan&Missens Facebook sida. Frakt tillkommer. Beställning över 500 kr är fraktfritt. 

Det finns inget vinstintresse med projektet, det handlar om att på något sätt kunna hjälpa katter som har det svårt. 

90% per såld produkt går till utvalt TNR-projekt/katt. Material kommer i möjligaste mån vara återanvändning, men inköp kommer även att behövas. Så om du handlar för 100 kr kommer 90 kr att gå till projektet/katten.

Här finns Missan&Missen  på Facebook, snälla “Gilla” sidan.

Smakprov ur kollektionen:

Lavender /Lavendel

Catnip mice/ Kattmynta möss

Veganism Is Animal Welfare

Interesting article. Yes, we all need to act and react to the wrong doings committed to other species as well as to our own species. I can’t say I’m very active, but I do at least try to spread the word about what’s happening behind the walls. You watch the cute chicken they show in the commercials when it’s Easter and think “cute”, I think of all the chickens grinded. A cow eating grass? I see a cow being tortured inside a barn before she is pushed into her killers. and it goes on, and on, and on… no animal (humans included) is safe from what humans can do to them…  I don’t consider myself left wing, yet I agree to a lot of what they say/want. The more I get informed on how things work in the world the more I tend to take a step to the left.

Veganism Is Animal Welfare.

Some reviews and info on the book “Mutant Message Down Under” by Marlo Morgan

A former college suggested I should read a book and I ordered it from the library. After 3-4 weeks I asked if the book had arrived, and now it was on its way. Finally it arrived and I started reading. I was thrilled, loved what I read. I was about to recommend the book to another person and searched for the english title. I found it. But I also found other information about the book. I haven’t finished the book yet, as the info made me annoyed and sad. But I’ve decided to finish it anyway. Below is two links with info:

Helping Yourself: Fabrication of Aboriginal Culture   By Cath Ellis

Morgan’s Mutant Fantasy: A critique of Marlo Morgan’s book Mutant Message Down Under  By Chris Sitka (Napaltjarri)

I belive it’s good to always question what you hear and read, but I never questioned the book as she wrote in the edition I have that one can read it as a fiction. So she doesn’t say the story is true but doesn’t deny its authenticity either. Yet I’m a bit disappointed. But please read the book, but do read at least the link above “Morgan’s Mutant Fantasy: A critique of Marlo Morgan’s book Mutant Message Down Under”, where a lot of good info about the aboriginal culture and customs is to be found.

Here is a third link: Documentary Film: The Secret Country: The First Australians Fight Back

Here is a link to a letter where Burnum Burnum retract his letter in the end of the book: Burnum Burnum Retraction  Linked from:  ” Radio interview With Marlo Morgan “

I finished the book today, Sunday 18th of May. It is sad she wasn’t honest from the beginning, now I had to alter my mind from believing this was a documentary to learn it was fiction. Well, she’s at least a story-teller.
