This is my cat Smokey. Yesterday morning my boyfriends mom found her in the trash. When I saw her I thought she was dead. Her eye had been gauged out & she was bleeding from her mouth. She lay there motionless until I called her name & pet her. We rushed over to the animal emergency & she is suffering from head trauma, lung & spinal problems & a missing eye. She was beaten to near death by my boyfriend’s mom’s step brother. He has mental issues & we’ve tried for so long to get him out our home but never were successful due to another issue. I love Smokey so much, I’ve always viewed her as my child since I got her when she was a kitten. I went through very lonely times where I had no friends & she was always there for me & spending time with me. She’s been on my mind 24/7 since this tragedy occurred. All I want in my life more than anything is for her to live & be happy. She has such a unique personality & loves everything & everyone so much. I just can’t understand why anyone could do this to someone so innocent. I live with my boyfriend working full time & we’re getting evicted from my home because of this horrible monster who did this to my cat. Charges are currently pending & I will do everything in my willpower to make sure he gets what he deserves for what he’s done. Right now I need everyone’s help & support. Please reblog this so it can get around. To make donations & read more about what happened go to this link http://www.gofundme.com/e4lqbc

If you can’t donate then at least reblog this!!!

I apologize if this comes off as disrespectful to Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin. Or their families. Or YOU, the reader. I’m not about that. That’s not why I drew this.

I am just really freaked out that 40% of Americans (and 47% of White Americans) do not think that the killings and violence in Ferguson ‘raise any racial issues.’ Fellow White Persons, this is our chance to learn. This is our chance to change.

When Trayvon Martin was murdered because Full Grown Men in America are frightened to violence by the presence black children, the dialogue turned very quickly into a conversation about gun control.

And gun control is an issue that deserves our attention.

But it won’t change the massive poverty in Black America. The arrest rate. The education statistics. The institutional, systemic, casual, and passive racism that plagues our country.

And it wouldn’t have saved Michael Brown.

Anyway. I’m sorry if this comes off as disrespectful or insincere or preachy. I’m sorry if my execution (or personality) gets in the way of what I’m trying to say. I am an imperfect artist, an imperfect person, and I am, undoubtedly, blinded to a million things by my own glaring whiteness. So this might be… Lord, this might be awful. I’m so sorry if it’s awful. Really.

But. I just keep thinking… Look, my wife is pregnant with our first child. A boy. We’re nervous, we’re excited, we’re SO ANXIOUS because what the hell do you do with babies? WE don’t know. But if we were a black family… in this country… we would be so terrified. Because we live in a nation that murders the children of black parents, puts it on the news WITH RIOTS AND TEAR GAS as decoration, and still half of us don’t even see it as a problem. Can you imagine that? Can you imagine bringing a child into that reality, to face the odds we lay out for black kids?

That would break me. I’ve never known anything like that. No one should ever know anything like that.

So let’s talk to our friends about race. Lets talk to our families. And when actual victims of racism try to tell us what’s going on in, say, a peaceful community protest as they are being gassed and shot at by cops WE SHOULD LISTEN TO AND BELIEVE THEM. Let’s talk to each other about this until we are all on the same page.

And then let’s turn the damn page.

Ten Things White People Can Do About Ferguson Besides Tweet →

joiuu:

1. Join a peaceful protest.

They’re happening all around the country tonight, including at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, around 7 p.m. Eastern. 

2. Recognize that Michael Brown’s death was not an isolated incident.

In 2012, more than 300 black people were executed by police, security guards, or vigilantes. In the last month, three other unarmed African-American men—Eric Garner in New York, John Crawford III in Beavercreek, Ohio, and Ezell Ford in Los Angeles—have been killed by police. Those are the ones we know about.

3. Stop saying “This can’t be happening in America.”

I understand the impulse, I really do. But that impulse only comes to those who are insulated and isolated from how America treats poor people and people of color every day. Langston Hughes wrote “America never was America to me” in 1935. If you didn’t quite understand that poem in your junior high or high-school lit classes, read it again, while you think about what’s happening in Ferguson. Let it sink in.

4. STFU about looting.

And call out your friends and family members who won’t. It’s been five days since Michael Brown was murdered. On one of those days, some furious, grieving citizens caused some property damage. Nine have been arrested. Every other day since then, police with more gear than American soldiers going into battle have been occupying the neighborhood where Brown died, attacking peaceful protestors with tear gas and rubber bullets. They’ve tear-gassed a state senator and Al-Jazeera reporters, and arrested an alderman. They’ve demanded that reporters leave the area and arrested two who didn’t move fast enough. “Disproportionate” doesn’t begin to describe it. If you look at all that and still think it’s important to talk about looting for “balance,” you should know that you sound like a racist asshole.

5. Look Around You.

If you live in an urban environment, you’re in a position to bear witness and document inappropriate and abusive police behavior. If you see an African-American neighbor being detained by police, wait to see what happens. Get your phone out. Download the ACLU’s “Police Tape” app, and if you see something that looks off, take a video that will upload directly to their servers, in case your phone is confiscated. Whatever police may tell you, this is your legal right.

6. Make a donation to a civil rights organization like the Southern Poverty Law Center or the ACLU.

7. Educate yourself about the systematic inequality that leads to civil unrest.

The St. Louis American ran a powerful editorial today that fleshes out the history of Ferguson. When you finish reading that, go somewhere quiet for a bit and settle down with Ta-Nehisi Coates’s “The Case for Reparations.” Don’t stop there.

8. Put pressure on your elected representatives.

Institutional abuse of African-American citizens is happening all over the country, and it demands a federal response. Talk to your senators and congresspeople about enacting policies to protect citizens from their protectors. While you’re at it, maybe suggest they work to limit the amount of military weaponry police can inherit from the armed forces.

9. Listen to your African-American friends when they try to tell you why this hurts.

If you don’t have any African-American friends, you might want to think about why that is.

10. Okay, go ahead and tweet.

And Facebook. Tumblr. Instagram. Vine. Amplify the voices of people on the ground, and help counteract the damaging narratives being propagated by some mainstream media organizations. It’s the very least we can do.

Written by Kate Harding

Sorry for reblogging this to an art blog, but (as a white person myself) I find this super useful and important. The demonstrations are not “bullshit” and people are not “just trying to find an excuse to do whatever they want”. Human beings simply don’t do this kind of stuff for no good reason. I don’t work like that, I doubt you work like that. Give some credit to others. There is always a good reason, and the only way to find it out is by sitting down and listening carefully.

ewitschu:

I need some advice on my cats.

I have an older cat and two younger ones. The young boy “bullies” the other two, and today was the first day that blood was drawn. He was playing with a toy, she was stalking it, and he got defensive over the toy. He swatted at her, claws drawn, and a claw literally…

So, for the cut on one of your cats, just watch if it heals normally and doesn’t get infected. I’ve lived with 4 to 6 cats around for most of my life, and they’d sometimes hurt each other, but normally everything would heal by itself. If it seemed to get infected, my vet once suggested using those medical/antibiotic cream (Polysporin or something similar). Just be careful when applying it, you don’t want it to go into the eye, but it’s normally enough to take care of most problems.

For the bullying part, if your cat isn’t neutered, that’d be the first thing to check. Then again, it’s the kind of thing that can happen even with neutered cats, but it usually reduces that kind of behavior. My cats were all fixed, and one of them never really got along with the others (they’d chase him around, hit him, etc.). The important thing is to make sure they all have at least one safe spot (i.e a place where they can sleep/ do their things and won’t fear being “attack”), so that they don’t get too stressed out about it. And then maybe you can try the “positive reinforcement” road, giving your boy some treats and/or positive attention when he’s being nice? Cats are pretty quick to pick up habits, especially if they get something nice out of it.

Finally, don’t worry too much. Many of the cats I’ve had displayed some sort of “bullying” behavior when they were younger, but it usually went away as they got older.

HEY TUMBLR, LET’S PLAY A GAME
To play this game, go to MapCrunch, select “hide location”, make sure you have all countries unselected, and click go. What this will do is drop you in a random part of the world. It’s as if you woke up on the side of a road in an unfamiliar country. The goal of the game is to find your way to an airport so you can return home. 
Bonus Hard Mode: No using outside sources, and that includes using google maps to figure out your location from signs or landmarks

…I had plans today but now.

THE AIRPORT GAME IS BACK.

FUCK THIS GAME
LAST TIME I PLAYED IT DUMPED ME IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NORWAY
I PLAYED FOR LIKE 8 HOURS BEFORE BREAKING DOWN CRYING

OMG NO STOP THIS GAME IS MY LIFE!!!

IT’S BACK

WHY IS THIS BACK

WHYYYYY

oh shit

I HAVEN’T USED THIS GIF SINCE FEBRUARY

Eh, one time it dropped me on a beach in Martinique. A beach with no road. No road. No escape. No airport. No nothing. :|
The view was nice though.
