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!

Our Hearts Break Over the Death of Wasabi-chan | Catster

Our Hearts Break Over the Death of Wasabi-chan

The kitten gained fame wearing a crocheted mushroom while recovering from a crow attack.

When you woke up this morning did you notice that your heart felt a little heavy? Mine sure did. I didn't know why until I saw the news on Catsparella: Wasabi-chan, quite possibly the world's most adorable kitten, has died.
She died this morning in Hokkaido, Japan after being rushed to the vet in critical condition. Though the three-month-old kitten had suffered from epilepsy following a June attack from a crow, she seemed to be recovering well with the aid of a series of adorable crochet swaddling intended to keep the kitten still while she was fed with a tube. It was her mushroom outfit in particular that propelled Wasabi-chan to Internet fame via Reddit.
From there we followed Wasabi-chan on her journey of healing via Instagram. She had aGolden Retriever dog friend and, according to Twitter, Wasabi-chan died in the company of a different Golden Retriever at the vet's office, so at least she didn't feel lonely.
It's tough news following the death of Homer the Blind Wonder Cat, though there's some consolation in the knowledge that Wasabi-chan received the best care possible during her short time on Earth. I hope Wasabi-chan and Homer are curled up together at the foot of the Rainbow Bridge, nestled in a sun puddle that never migrates, even when the sun sets.
Are you coping with the loss of a beloved cat friend right now? These articles might help:
