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!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

Canadian Government Sacrifices Cats and Dogs for Seals

GUELPH, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2009) - A recent article by the Canadian Press has revealed that the government of Canada will not join the United States and Europe in barring cat and dog fur imports, in fear such action could weaken Canada's position against the banning of seal products by other countries.

"It is absolutely appalling that Canada's government remains willing to engage in the trade of cat and dog fur simply to protect the cruel and unnecessary seal slaughter" said Sheryl Fink, Senior Researcher with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org).

The revelation is especially surprising in light of the fact that Prime Minister Harper and his wife are known cat lovers who support and participate in the Ottawa Humane Society's Foster Program.

"Would the Prime Minister or his family wear cat fur?" asked Fink. "Like most Canadians, I imagine they would be horrified to discover that the fur trim on their hat or scarf was actually the skin of a cat or dog."

The European Union recently implemented a ban on seal products in response to demand from its citizens, who did not want to provide a market for products arising from inherently inhumane commercial seal hunts.

"Canadians don't want to wear pet fur any more than Europeans or Americans. Allowing the trade in cat and dog fur to continue simply because certain Canadian politicians find it expedient to support the commercial seal slaughter is completely unethical. Two wrongs don't make a right," Fink concluded.
