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.

Cat returned to owner after missing for three years

While away from home three years ago, Terri Essex was told that her beloved cat, Harrison, had run away and her sitter was unable to find him. On returning to her Muskegon, MI home, Essex did all the things you would expect her to do. "We looked, we checked all the shelters, we ran ads in the paper," she said.

Then this month, Harbor Humane Society recieved a cat from the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department Animal Control, checked the feline's microchip and found that it was Harrison, who was still wearing his collar.

"For him to be alive after three years, especially being front-declawed, is pretty amazing," said Jill Bannick-Albrecht of the Harbor Humane Society. She explained that front-declawed cats are defenseless in the wild, and the chances of him being killed by a predator or hit by a car were extremely high.

"It's unbelievable," said Essex. "I always felt like he wasn't dead, like someone had taken him. It sounds like, from what they are saying, he's just been free roaming all this time."

Harrison is now safely back home.
