According to this gif, it looks almost like these people think, “she be wet; stick it in.” Wrong. Just because a woman is wet doesn’t mean she doesn’t need further assistance in making sure she become a…

"here’s Ur point of view, according to me, and here’s why it’s wrong"
I live in the UK and went on Amazon today to look at cat trees for my two beautiful cats. While browsing I saw these and nearly fell off my chair!!!!
YOU GLUE THESE TO YOUR CATS CLAWS!!!!
It’s to stop them scratching the furniture apparently. WHAT! If you value your furniture that much then don’t get a bloomin’ cat! Cats scratch naturaly to desheath the claws it’s their normal behaviour they are not doing it to irritate you so why would anybody stick these things to their main form of defence. Even housecats are known to get out now and then so what do they do if they are attacked? Blind their opponent with the neon colours these claw covers come in?
Shame on Amazon for not telling these sellers where to go. Woud you do this to your cat? Or is it just me that finds them offensive. They should be banned.
There is nothing cruel about these. While they are not suitable for use on outdoor cats, for indoor ones they are a great alternative to the cruel practice of declawing and are even recommended by many vets. Once the cat gets used to wearing them they are perfectly fine and it doesn’t harm them in any way. They are also not permanent fixtures and naturally fall off after about 6 weeks.
Cats are still able to retract their claws and scratch like normal while wearing them, it just prevents their claws from doing damage when they do so. Here’s some more info on them: http://www.softpaws.com/faqs.html
Seriously, OP, get off your high horse. Would you rather people remove the claws all together? How about dump the cat off at the shelter because the cat has been destroying the furniture or scratching the hell out of their kids?
Is OP even an adult yet? Do you know how much a freaking couch costs?
I use these on one of my cats whenever I get tired of her scratching the hell out of me. She likes to sleep on me at night and when I move or roll over in the night, she sinks her claws into me. She also likes to ride on my shoulders, but again, she’s very reactive and her first instinct is to sink her claws into my flesh in a prayer for stability.
What the hell is with pet people and the need to label everything as ‘cruel?” You need to redefine your definition of cruelty because there are some truly horrific things that are being done to animals that are actually cruel, and this is not one of them.
I guess putting muzzles on snappy dogs is also cruel…
Would someone who understands dog behavior better than I do please explain why the chihuahua backs its ass up against the other dog? Is it trying to get it to play?
Cargo does this with dogs that she’s really excited to be playing with, and does a more gentle version with me when she’s trying to get my attention/get me to play with her. I don’t know if thats why they actually do it, but I’ve observed its generally a playful/attention grabbing thing like “hey motherfucker play with me”. Also the shop dog we hang out with comes up to me and leans her back end against me when she wants to be pet.
I’ve heard some people say its a “dominance thing” but the fact that they even mention “dominance” is usually a reason for me to be extra skeptical about everything they have to say after that point.
Cargo is pooped from another full day at the shop. Seems like shes getting better around strangers and starting to feel a little more brave, but I think thats largely from being progressively more comfortable in/around the shop itself. And having other dogs to play with is a nice distraction as well.
As a Black person it annoys me that almost no attention is given to the Middle East slave trade, which by most estimates enslaved and killed even more Africans than the Atlantic slave trade. The best non-ideological estimates say 19 million Africans died in the Middle-East slave trade. (Just like in the Atlantic slave trade, during the Middle East slave trade for every one person who became a slave many more died in the capture and transport process) In today’s population numbers 19 million is the equivalent of 360 million people dying, making it one of the worst events in human history.
The reason people mostly ignore the Middle-East slave trade is because it was perpetrated by Muslims, and some people are uncomfortable criticizing Muslims.
The Middle Eastern Slave trade predated the Atlantic Slave trade, and continued long after the Atlantic slave trade had been abolished. (And the Middle Eastern slave trade was only abolished by outside pressure, not from within) In fact, in the countries of Sudan and Mauritania enslavement of Black Africans by Arab Muslims continues to this day.
In my experience Muslims either don’t talk about slavery in Islam at all or try to whitewash it by saying slaves are theoretically supposed to be treated better in Islam, but the truth is Islamic slavery was often just as brutal as European/Americas slavery, and as I mentioned it ended up killing even more people than slavery in Europe/Americas.
Slavery is embedded in Islamic law and history. In fact, the Prophet Mohammed himself was a slave trader and slave owner, who owned dozens of slaves including female sex slaves. The Koran also institutionalizes and allows slavery in several verses (Koran 33:50, 4:24, 16:75, 23:5-6, 8:69, 24:32)
I understand that these days most Muslims don’t support slavery, but the silence and whitewashing of slavery in Islam really annoys me, especially since some slavery is still going on in some Muslim countries.
TL;DR: It’s wrong the Islamic Slave Trade gets almost no attention, especially since it killed even more Africans than the equally-evil Atlantic trade. Muslims need to admit the role slavery has played in the Islamic religion and their history, and should fight the slavery that still exists in Muslim countries and stop ignoring/whitewashing it.
I’m really confused as to how Cargo is the only puppy in the litter that actually got a double thick coat with any degree of “long” hair. She’s not long coated by any means but her coat is significantly longer and thicker than any of the pups in her litter, which all appear either short coated or double thick but still shorter and less dense than Cargo’s.
Not complaining by any means, I think its great that she’s happy to run out in -40 but I still find it odd that shes the only one who’s really taken after the father(also in temperament, which is unfortunate in some circumstances)
I want to make sure every one knows about this and what it can do to your pets
this is what has happened to my sisters cat after she wore a hartz flea and tick collar and now has a burn like wound on her neck. please pass this on and do not buy hartz’s products! they use poison in their products pets have died because of this!!
Yes this is my cat she is doing fine at the moment but I’m so sorry for the people who’s pets are not so lucky
oh my god
PLEASE REBLOG THIS PEOPLE
Hartz is the worse EVER! my aunt used it and it ended up killing two of her cats. only one survived but she had the worse skin condition. NEVER USE HARTZ
BETTER REBLOG THISS!!!
Guys this is an actual issue. We had Hartz collars for my dog and he kept having seizures. one seizure he had on the stairs and fell backwards down the stairs, and he also stop breathing from these seizures. When I found out about Hartz causing this I took it off my dog and he hasn’t had a seizure since. And he used to have one at least every few months. DON’T USE HARTZ.
DONT USE FLEA COLLARS PERIOD
THEY ARE ALL AWFUL
As soon as I saw the image, before reading the text, I went “That looks like a burn from a Hartz product.”
Lo and behold. I fucking despise that brand and tell every fellow dog/cat owner about how awful they are.
Also, vets can’t even tell you about how awful this product it because Hartz has sued veterinarians in the past for slander. I’ll repeat that. THEY PRESS LAWSUITS AGAINST VETS WHO WARN THEIR PATIENTS ABOUT THIS PRODUCT. Fuck Hartz.
why I literally glare at the Hartz section at pet stores every time I walk by
Okay right off the bat I love this kid and her mama too
But I was going through photos on facebook and I can’t believe these were taken a year ago and she grows up so fast and blaahh
Also kids are the best to take pictures of. They’re almost always photogenic because they don’t really worry about what you’re doing. They don’t pose unless you ask them to and every photo is candid and pure. I honestly love photographing kids… which sounds really creepy but obviously I mean that in the least creepy way possible
I feel so bad for dogs that want to play with cats.
Cargo wants to play with ANY animal that will let her get anywhere close to them. Including the rat. I’m glad I took the time to teach her when she was young to be gentle when he’s out to and to be careful with her movement
Cats are relatively new to her since they tend to avoid her and shes HORRIBLE at reading their body language. She thinks being batted in the face means its time to play.
