About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most 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 matters...or not

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A sick woman in Orleans, MA began stalking me in 2007 on Myspace. Since that time, this woman obsessed over me to the point of having the police come to her home and threaten to confiscate her laptop. She is a racist and anti-Semite.I could no longer blog freely, knowing this nutbag was just going to take the photos I'd post and put them on a child exploitation website.

This site is only up for the information it has that others might need to know about. That information is about "Seal Shepherd" aka Michael McDade, Kat McAboy aka Marilyn McAboy and Veronika Hompo, a self-proclaimed Nazi.


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.

This blog is no longer used. I've retired it for the most part unless something very important comes up.

Paws in the Air! Snuggly Kitties...


Thanks to
Paqaris Safe Place cat Rescue & Home

About Paqaris:

About me:

I feed, adopt & rescue stray cats in a small town in southern Chile. Most people don't spay or neuter so there are a lot who run wild without food, shelter, medical care or love. I rescue cats & kittens I find who need help; when they show up at my house I feed them, doctor their injuries & try to let them know they are welcome here. I don't always have money for the vet so I treat a lot of injuries, abscesses, mange & earmites myself plus spay & neuter everybody I can. I've got some strays who started out feral but have learned to trust me, several who were wild but after being spayed & neutered decided to live here & are permanent residents & many others too wild for human contact who simply come, eat & leave. If I open the door or they see me, they take off out of fear but they fight traffic on a busy street, mean people & hungry dogs when they leave the safety of my yard. Also many kittens are dumped, abandoned or neighbors bring me their unwanted ones so after getting them healthy I try to find homes for them. I keep the babies nobody wants or who have special needs so I've got 8 of my own now plus 3 newer arrivals who need homes. My income isn't sufficient for me to be able to feed them all so I ask for help from donations. My income covers basic living expenses & I buy cat food before human food but there's not enough to be able to buy cat food, iodine, bleach, mange soap, ringworm treatment, laundry detergent for washing blankets & towels. Without donations it's not even possible to feed them all, let alone buy the supplies I use plus do the spaying & neutering needed. There are no shelters or humane societies here, there's no where for these strays to go, all they can do is fight to survive on their own & it's a hard, cold life for them. If you'd be able to help us, to contribute a small amount it would be so much help & I would be so grateful. Nothing that comes in goes for anything but feeding & caring for the cats, please help if you can. If you would like to contribute message me for more information
Thank you for visiting our page & for caring.

Donna Karan, You're Disgusting.

A long time ago.. a very long time ago, I used to buy designer clothing and
shoes, boots, pocketbooks — anything I could buy when I had that cash in
my hands. Clinton was in office, and oh man, I was not lacking for anything.
I would go into stores I'd never shopped in before and buy things I'd never
had been able to afford before. I still watched for sales and I still made sure
it was 20% or 30% off, but I sure did buy a lot back then. That included a
few Donna Karan items.

Well, Donna, you make me fucking sick. Those days are long gone, and
so are the days of most designers using real fur. I myself don't even buy
bags made of leather when there are so many fashionable designer bags
out there, vegan bags by vegan designers. I don't need to buy leather shoes
or boots when the hottest stiletto shoe I see is by an Australian outfit and
100% vegan — their shoes, boots and clothing. The most sexy shoes I keep
seeing are not leather. That tells you something.

Whoops, digressing. Back to Donna and her fur thing.

Okay... Donna is now labeled... the Bunny Butcher.


DONNA KARAN BUNNY BUTCHER

Donna Karan knows about the suffering that occurs on fur farms, but she has made the cruel decision to use the skins of rabbits in her clothing lines. LEARN MORE >>>







Help Stop the Bunny Butcher

Tell Donna Karan Executives to Ditch Fur!



Despite knowing about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, Donna Karan has made the cruel decision to use the skins of dead rabbits in her clothing lines.
Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, and fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, and often skinned alive for their fur.
One of the best ways that you can help animals who are beaten and tortured for their fur is to tell Donna Karan executives that you'll boycott the designer's collections until she stops using fur. Many top designers—including Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Liz Claiborne—have chosen to create wonderful work without using animal fur.
 
Speak out against the killing of animals for their skins. Write to Donna Karan executives now and urge them to dump fur for good.

Why Donna Karan?

Every year, millions of animals are killed for the clothing industry, and 85 percent of fur comes from the hell-on-Earth known as the "factory farm." Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages where they have only enough room to take a few steps in any direction.
Fur farmers use the cheapest killing methods available, including neck-breaking, suffocation, poisoning, and anal or vaginal electrocution. Many animals are electrocuted by having rods inserted into their rectums and 240 volts of electricity sent through their bodies, frying the animals from the inside out in order to keep from damaging the pelt. The animals convulse, shake, and often cry out before suffering painful heart attacks. Crude killing methods aren't always effective, and sometimes animals "wake up" while they are being skinned.
More than half the fur in the U.S. comes from China, where millions of dogs and cats are bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and sometimes even skinned alive for their fur. And Chinese fur is often deliberately mislabeled, so, if you wear any fur, there's no way of knowing whose skin you're in.
Donna Karan knows about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, but her clothing lines now contain the skins of dead rabbits.
Please
 take action and boycott Donna Karan, the bunny butcher, until she permanently removes all fur from her collections.

Feline Media Sensation Prince Chunk Dies in NJ

BLACKWOOD, N.J. (Nov. 27) - An enormously fat cat named Prince Chunk who became famous when he was found wandering in New Jersey after his owner lost her home to foreclosure has died.

Prince Chunk's adoptive owner, Vince Damiani of Blackwood, said the white tabby died in his sleep Sunday. He was about 10 years old. Damiani said a veterinarian had diagnosed the cat with heart disease.

Prince Chunk, the enormous feline who shot to fame after he was found wandering in New Jersey in 2008, died Sunday.

Prince Chunk skyrocketed to fame in August 2008 after the Camden County Animal Shelter, which took him in, reported that he weighed 44 pounds, just shy of a world record.

Damiani believes that estimate may have been somewhat exaggerated. He said Prince Chunk weighed 22 pounds when he brought the cat home from the shelter.

He soon became a media sensation, appearing on "Good Morning America," ''Live with Regis and Kelly," the covers of the New York tabloids and in People magazine.

The Damiani family was chosen from among 500 applicants to adopt him.

The pet's plight inspired the Damianis to establish the Prince Chunk Foundation, a nonprofit that helps financially distressed pet owners keep their animals. The foundation operates in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York and California.

Its mission is to prevent animal homelessness by providing temporary assistance to dog and cat owners, including free emergency vet care and pet food, Damiani said.

Prehistoric Crabs Gettin' Freaky in Brooklyn


horseshoelove.jpg
Photo of mating horsehoe crabs from Citynoise.com

It's that time of year when love at the seashore blossoms, and hordes of initially alarming-looking horseshoe crabs scuttle up onto the beaches of Jamaica Bay to procreate in the sands. The species is approximately 450 million years old, and they look like something from a dinosaur film strip. Despite their tails that look like barbs and alien appearance, horseshoe crabs are completely harmless.

Every summer, under a full moon, the crabs migrate to beaches where the female lays her eggs and multiple males make their play to inseminate them. Dr. Martin P. Schreibman, a marine biologist at Brooklyn College, is featured in a NY Times video discussing his work attempting to cultivate and preserve the species. His work usually takes him to Plum Beach, on Brooklyn's Jamaica Bay, where crabs romance each other amidst the garbage and other detritus that litter New York's beaches. Citynoise has a series of photos of mating horseshoe crabs taken a few years ago.


I used to pick these up and check them out. I think I might've scared a few other kids at the beach with a horseshoe crab in my day. This article is a few years old... old article, but then again, these crabs are pretty damn old, so... yep.

Nicole Rice — Might as Well be McDade.

As most of you know, I've been working like mad lately, and feeling like crap as my entire household seems to be passing back and forth some viral infection. I just recently found out that Nicole Rice has been making defamatory posts about me for days, and it's escalated. She and her friends are posting libel about me in a few groups, and claim I'm very active in anti and pro-sealing groups. I don't even have the time. She knows this. My last interaction in a seal group was with a Canadian man who targeted women with crude attacks, and it took place months ago. Nicole knows this. Because I'm against the seal hunt and she is pro-seal hunting, she chooses to attack me? Did she enjoy it when Michael McDade attacked her? No, she didn't. I recall her saying she was quite upset when he went after her and her family, yet she is now doing the same to me. She's chosen to victimize me the way she was victimized, all because I am against sealing and she is not only pro-sealing, but advocates sealing and whaling. She's begun a hate campaign against me all because I stated that I really could no care less about people who support, proudly, the Canadian seal hunt. It wasn't said to her or directed to her, but she took it very personal and responded with immense volatility.

She posted private information I'd messaged to her. She concocted information "about me" and posted it public. She, in a nutshell, lost her marbles over my stance on the seal hunt.

If this woman does NOT remove the libel, I will send all the online harassment to her local police.

Suzanne Hayes: I'm sorry I'm not as active here as usual. I'm sick (yes, again, or still) and just got a huge creative project with a close deadline. My awesome son is home from school, too, until Friday. Much ♥ to my friends!
 November 10 at 5:24pm

Back in Sept., I had private messages with Nicole, and she has posted them public. To me, that's wrong on many levels.

Nicole has also been posting to groups claiming I'm a boozer. Her "nickname" for me is "Bozy Suzy." A shame Nicole can't spell correctly. She refers to me often as being drunk and makes comments about me "hitting the bottle."

I don't even drink.


Nicole Rice: Hold on a minute. Do you hear that. Thats Bozy signing into all her fake account and messaging all her friends to report this group. She and Micheal would make a wonderful couple they are so much alike. Go ahead tho Bozy, beware tho that while your signing into and out of profiles you will have to put down your bottle. Might lose your buzz, would not want that to happen reality might sink in.
Tuesday at 2:09pm


This is Nicole Rice. She is a cyberbully and she posts libel, bullies Facebook users who are NOT pro-seal hunt and who speak out against it (it gets her annoyed and yes, she will tell you so). 
http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000693182529

Here is my message to her. She thinks it's funny.
I'm not laughing.

I just received a screenshot from the group "Sunny Day."
Nicole Rice is badmouthing me and posting libel.

If Nicole does NOT stop the libel and defamatory comments, I will retaliate. This is total bullshit. Who the fuck does this bitch think she is? I never said I was "having fun" with Susan. Learn to read, Nicole. Look below and read all my posts and comments. I said the group creeped me out and the people were pro-hunt. You're an asshole, because of course I want people to know "spookie" is "spookie," I just won't use this account in that group! That's my nickname online since the early 90's, moron. And yes, I did mingle with hackers. So? And? I myself don't. I had joined the EFF, Electronic Freedom Foundation, and attended CFP conferences (Computers, Freedom and Privacy). Studied some cryptology. NOT anything for boozers or drug addicts, sorry to say. I find it all interesting. Same as computer software and hardware. I can gut a computer and put it together again better than it was before. Yes, I can trace IP's. At one of my former jobs, I could tell my boss what applications every employee was using in the entire building. 38 floors. I stopped a virus from attacking the LAN.

You're so right, Nicole, I must be a boozer, slack on my "fake" profiles and slip up. Ha ha ha
My Spookie SassyCat account is my backup, dumb ass. It was actually a profile created by my ex, and when I found it, I demanded it be handed over to me. Want to go after my cat's account, too? How about my account set up so my son, a toddler, can play all the games, but not mess up my Facebook profile? Do you want to make accusations there also? Get a life, Nicole. You have too much paranoia brewing.

This is no joke, Nicole. Don't fuck with me. I didn't start up with you, you started up with me. You came at me with your attacks and so did your friend. I stated my opinion, and you didn't like it. I didn't even say anything nasty or mean. I said the group was creepy. You don't even know HOW I saw. You just assume and jump, and make accusations. You're nasty and you think because you were victimized by McDade, you can victimize others?

If you think I'm just some little FB user, you're very wrong. I don't know what your issue is, but I agree with CG, the Susan character is a fake and you, you're a phony. You were pissed off from the getgo when I was disgusted by that "friend" of yours, the total stranger you have on your friend list that calls women cunts and posts to women "you should've been aborted." "Inbred? hahah Its too bad you're a waste of space, brainless, cunt , who is trying to get attention cause daddy never loved her. Or maybe its because you are so fugly you cant make any friend offline. :) save all you want whore." Now there's a good friend to have. He seeks women to attack, not men. That sounds like McDade, and you friended him. He calls men faggots, and women cunts. You think about that, Nicole. While you sit there on your high horse, remember how long ago that was. That was the last time, and one of two or three times I was ever in a group like that, so you and you pal are just posting libel unless you can come up with a boatload of screenshots. And you can't. Lastly, calling me a boozer? I don't drink, do drugs, or smoke. Sorry, Nicole. Try again.

I'm working around the clock for over a week on two expos/trade shows, and taking care of my son, so Nicole, you're telling me you can see into my home and you know I'm not posting in your asinine groups because I run? Ha ha ha ha!!! Listen bitch, I don't run. I have no time for you or the sock account, and I'm posting on my profile when I can. Secondly, my other job is social media marketing manager, so seriously, time for you is sparse. I create Facebook fan pages for businesses. I have access to attorneys. Software for

...oh, gotta go, Nicole ;)

STOP the libel, or I'll take this seriously and you DO NOT want to WASTE MY TIME.

Just got the screenshot of the TOPIC you created about me. Are you a mentally ill woman? You posted private information about a serious incident that the police happened to get involved in. Do YOU want to have the police involved, too? I'll gladly forward the screenshots of your libel to your local police, Nicole. Your libel and harassment are not tolerated. The boozing comments are really off the wall.

I have no posts asking anyone to report your groups or Sunny Day. Are you smoking something?

Remove the private conversations, that mention my father, or I will send the libel and harassment to your local police. You had no permission. That's why they are called PM's, Nicole. PRIVATE. MESSAGES. I am so sorry for being HONEST with you. You obviously are not an honorable woman. And yes, the woman who stalks me? Stalks others. She's currently harassing a former friend of hers and calling that friend "Judas." A dozen of us all just received postal letters, a federal crime. So much for your facts.

I've had it with you. You crossed the line. I receive one more screenshot of you and any online bullying, online abuse or anything that in libel, and I send it to the authorities. I've not harassed or libeled you. You're harassing me and what you are doing is called ONLINE BULLYING.

I will take it all the way.

I have handouts to create for this trade show, so please, get your libel off the site and stop this shit.


This is what Nicole has just posted:
("Seen" this? Poor woman didn't even learn English.)




Nicole Rice
A Bully as Bad a Michael McDade


I will not and do NOT tolerate BULLYING.
Nicole hates veg*ns? Too bad. I hate the people who support the seal hunt so proudly. 
They are disgusting people.

Nicole, I'm so glad you're PROUD to be PRO-SEALER.



I have NO TIME for this crap.
I refuse to participate with pro-sealer bullies. Bullying is bullshit.


Nicole, had you a single good, kind bone in your body, you'd have not plastered the internet with your lies and bullshit. You know damn well you are full of SHIT when you post that I have never once fought McDade. You yourself know what I've done, and you can look it up right here. You also know from other people. You think that because you were attacked, you have a free pass to attack others. Wrong.

He attacked me, too, and because I chose to NOT allow you to bully me, and I told you so, you assume I ran and hid? No, cupcake. That's called NOT DEALING WITH A Canadian REDNECK. You are uneducated and you seem to live for a fight. Not my bag, Nicole! I'm BUSY.


Get the fuck over YOURSELF, Nicole. And when you do, I'll gladly remove this entry.
Let me know when all the libel and hate comes down. Until then, fuck yourself.

"What he done to me?" Dear God, learn English. Do you have any idea how many times you've written such horrible grammar?

You know damn well what I stand for, what I do and have done. LYING about me gets you nowhere.

Get a life, Nicole.



Awww, how cute. Nicole has an "ANTI-SEA SHEPHERD" badge on her little Facebook picture. So cute! So supportive of our diminishing oceans. So caring and compassionate. Oh, break out the box of tissues, everyone.


I'll repeat this for you: Get the fuck over YOURSELF, Nicole. And when you do, I'll gladly remove this entry.
Let me know when all the libel and hate comes down. 
Until then, fuck yourself.

By the way, Nicole, you trailer trash skank, remember how you swore it was fact that I was not part of any organizations that had anything to do with humans, just animals? Here's just a sampling from my Change.org. Sorry, it's an old screenshot and shows no actions, really. You can go snoop for yourself since you already keep snooping here, right? Go ahead, lurk Change.org, too. Don't expect to find pro-sealers who give a rat's ass about you, though.
Now go fuck yourself.



You and Michael McDade would've made quite a team in a different life. Maybe you DO on a different plane. Ha ha ha. OMG, that probably went right over your uneducated brain.

Still Have Pumpkin? Pumpkin Pie Brownie Recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World

Pumpkin Pie Brownie

Filed under: Baking PornHoliday CupcakesNon-Cupcake ObjectsRecipes — by isachandra @ 12:10 pm 
Thank Zod for autumn. I have 6 cans of pumpkin in my pantry that need to get outta’ there and make room for something else. I don’t even know where they came from, it’s possible that I just kept forgetting if I had any canned pumpkin and my collection grew and grew, or it could be the canned pumpkin fairy. And I can’t eat pumpkin in warm weather, it throws off my equilibrium.
Last night I made these Pumpkin Pie Brownies. It’s a brownie base with pumpkin in the batter and then pumpkin pie filling is poured on top and they bake together in perfect harmony. Obviously, these would be like gold at any Halloween event.

Recipe has been added, just click “more.”

Note: A 15 or 16 ounce can of pumpkin will equal the 2 cups of pumpkin needed for this recipe.


Ingredients:
For the brownie layer
4 ounce bittersweet chocolate, melted
1 cup canned or pureed pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
1 tablespoon tapioca flour (or arrowroot or corn starch)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
For the pumpkin pie layer
1 cup canned or pureed pumpkin
2 tablespoons tapioca flour (or use arrowroot or cornstarch)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used soy)
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch ground nutmeg
pinch ground allspice
To decorate:
A handful of chocolate chips


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 inch springform pan, or use a 9 inch square pan, preferably lined with parchment paper.
To make the brownie layer:
Melt the chocolate (I still don’t need to tell you how to melt chocolate, right?).
In a large mixing bowl mix together pumpkin, sugar, oil and vanilla. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, tapioca, baking soda and salt and stir to combine, then mix in the melted chocolate.
To make the pumpkin layer:
Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until thoroughly combined.
To assemble:
Use a spatula to spread the brownie layer into the prepared baking pan, taking care to bring the batter to the edges of the pan. Pour the pumpkin layer over it, leaving a little room at the edges if you can. Bake for 30 minutes, until the pumpkin layer looks fairly firm (a little jiggling is okay) and has cracked at the edges a bit.
Let cool for 20 minutes and then transfer to the fridge to set for at least an hour and a half. Once set, decorate with chocolate chips and serve.

Actress Portia de Rossi's a-ha moment that made her a vegan | This Dish Is Veg

Actress Portia de Rossi's a-ha moment that made her a vegan | This Dish Is Veg

Actress Portia de Rossi's a-ha moment that made her a vegan


Many of us who become vegan do so after a lifetime of meat-eating. Suddenly, unexpectedly, we have an "a-ha!" moment, a personal epiphany that changes our destiny in a split second.

This is exactly what happened to Portia de Rossi, the beautiful actress and wife of comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Early one morning, her life changed and she could never eat meat again.

In an interview with O, The Oprah Magazine, an excerpt of which can be found
here, Portia talks about how veganism took her by surprise.

She had just moved with Ellen DeGeneres to a California farm where the couple, who at the time were not yet married, raised four cows and two calves and subsequently bought a horse.

Early one morning, Portia went to check on the new members of the family out in the pasture, and lo and behold there she viewed a scene she describes as "extraordinary." Portia says she saw the cows and their calves walking single file past the horse, each one touching noses with their new friend. Then they all played together as one happy family, like little children.

Portia broke down in tears and made the decision there and then that she couldn't possibly keep eating animals.

Does this scene sound familiar to you? For me, Portia's moment of discovery resonates so strongly with my own. I became vegetarian after witnessing pigs in a transport truck being hauled off to slaughter. I saw their little pink noses sticking out of the tractor trailer and I felt as if Moses had just come down the mountain a second time, just for me, to tell me never to harm another animal again by eating its meat.

I went vegan shortly thereafter, when I met a little white duck living in a big city park. His great spirit, playfulness and love of life taught me to value all animals even more than I had been doing.

Animals teach us so much. All we have to do is open our eyes. Our hearts will follow.
