About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Timothy the Cat — WHY?

This is Timothy. 
No. This WAS Timothy.
Timothy was an innocent kitten, killed by a heartless human being.

 The following is taken from the Facebook group made about Timothy. 
The group, "Timothy - When Will The Cruelty End?" can be joined here.
The discussion thread is called "Timothy's Wonderful Foster Family"

We now have the true story of Timothy and the foster family that showed him the love and kindness he so deserved. May we find some comfort in knowing that he truly knew love because of this wonderful family............Many hugs and thanks to them.

Attached you will find two pictures of Timothy, the little cat who had been glued to Interstate 90. He is held by my son, Ben Kean. Some of the information you were given about him was incorrect. Timothy was only 3 months old, not 7 months old. He came into Second Chance Rescue Center on Friday, December 11th, not on December 18th. He came home with me on Monday, December 14th and was at our house until I took him to Dale Animal Clinic on December 23. He died at the clinic on the 23rd. He was treated by Dr. Byl at Dale Animal Clinic on Wednesday, December 16th, on Tuesday, December 22nd, and on the 23rd, when he died. He was a sweet, loving little kitten. When he came to our house, he was terrified of men. He would run and hide when my husband or my sons went into his room, but after several days had past, he began to trust them. He loved to sit on the desk in his room and watch the birds in our backyard. He also liked watching our Cat Sitter DVD. Another of his favorite activities was sitting on my lap and watching the computer screen while I played Solitaire. He liked watching the cards turn over. He enjoyed sitting in my husband's lap to "help" him put puzzles together. Actually, he was better at taking the puzzles apart!On Tueday, December 22nd, he started throwing up. I took him to Dale Animal Clinic, and Dr. Byl started him on an IV because he was dehydrated. He came home later that day and seemed to be doing all right. I checked him every two hours during that night. At 5:00 a.m., he was up and using his litter box. At 7:00 a.m., he was stretched out on the floor, obviously in distress. I rushed him to Dale Animal Clinic where they did everything possible to help him. He died around 9:00 a.m. Tim Hoeck, the owner of Forever Friends, cremated his body, and we have his ashes at our house.My family and I loved Timothy very much. We called him Tiny Tim. He was a wonderful kitten, and we miss him. — Jean Kean

Notes from the group:
Someone glued this kitten to a dark Minnesota highway on one of the coldest nights of the year. Sadly, the kitten named Timothy died. A reward of more than $3,000 is being offered for information in what is described as one of the worst cases of cruelty to an animal. Authorities think the kitten was stuck to the highway for hours in freezing temperatures before a traveling couple found him glued to the snow-frozen road. Veterinarians tried to save Timothy, but he died five days later as a result of trauma, frostbite, and complications from severe injuries. "He was a lover, just a sweetheart," said Dana Wigg, a humane officer with Second Chance Rescue. Timothy had responded to the kindness of the rescue staff and loved to cuddle, snuggle, and purr. "We all thought Timothy was going to get better," Dana said, adding that the staff was heart-broken when the orange and white tabby died on December 23rd.
