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.

Man Throws Kitten Like Fastball: Brave Teen Comes to Rescue

Man Throws Kitten Like Fastball: Brave Teen Comes to Rescue

By Beth Laurer of Indiana
About five years ago while I was at work, I received a call from my 18-year-old daughter. She was almost hysterical. Between sobs she explained she was visiting a friend and the neighbor next door to her friend’s house appeared with a kitten.  He was raging with anger stating the kitten had scratched his baby.  He proceeded to throw the kitten across a huge field next to where he lived.
My daughter began to run after the kitten and he began to run after her.  She found the kitten and the man threatened to knock her teeth out if she tried to help the kitten.  He grabbed the kitten and threw it on the roof of an abandoned hospital.  She was terrified of the man and pretended to leave.  She waited and when the man walked back across the field and into his house, she climbed up on the hospital roof and found the kitten in a ball. She brought it down with her and immediately called me.
Between sobs she said she feared the kitten was badly hurt.  I told her to take the kitten to the veterinarian and have it examined.  Not only did the vet save the kitten’s life, but he also gave my daughter the phone number for animal cruelty.  She called them and gave them the address of the man and a description of him. It turns out that he was already on probation.
He was arrested for animal cruelty. When my daughter talked with the animal cruelty officers, it was learned the distance the kitten was thrown was as big as half a football field.  She was a miracle kitten.  She is now grown up and lives with me. My daughter named her Cleo and she is loved by me, my daughter and all my cats.
