Self righteous? What the hell is self righteous about supporting and demanding organic farming as the only legal way to keep livestock and to kill them the fastest possible way? Every normal being should be able to realize, that it´s simply not right to put laying hens in cages where they can´t move or that mankind simply shreds the male chicks due to their non-economical value. Or to put street dogs and cats alive in a shredder or beat them to death or hang them when not of use anymore or bind them on some tree in a remote area for a slow death, only because people are too stupid to be responsible enough and to castrate their cats and dogs. There´s nothing self righteous about criticizing such doings and advocating organic farming while at the same time not being a vegetarian/vegan. Cause it´s not meat eating I criticize (gosh, then I wouldn´t even be allowed to keep a cat), but how this meat is produced. But just like with equal rights for women and homosexuals, you either don´t want or aren´t able to comprehend the issue but only hear what you want to hear to suit your prejudices and hatred. So move back into your hole and keep twisting and spew your hatred. That´s all you are good for.

I actually only wanted to post this cute video, which a co-worker showed me yesterday at work. I doubt my two cats will form a bond like that with my future dog, as they aren´t kittens anymore. My hopes are less ambitious. I am satisfied already if they won´t attack her. I don´t fear at all that Gracie (my future dog) with about 5 years experiences of street life, will have any aggressions for cats. Two more months, despite I will drive down to get her out of Romania soon and give her to a foster family till I can take her for good on the 1. October.

This morning I received a message by the head of our illegal dog rescue organisation, who is slightly over 60 years of age, that she doesn´t have the energy or rather the mental capacity anymore to keep up her work. She apologized but I totally understand her. The suffering and cruelty you see when engaging in animal rescue especially abroad, is soul crushing. Especially if you have a pure soul and a big heart, which she has. And she finished by sending me a picture of a dog in Romania, which got bound at a tree and tortured nearly to death. And I swing between crying out of hurt as well as anger because of such scum of mankind.

But I can so understand her, giving up when helping becomes harmful for onself. It´s so sad, though. And so needless. A simple law which makes it mandatory to castrate your cats and dogs would solve it. Not letting the dogs die of starving on the streets or in animal shelter, as many countries catch dogs but don´t feed them - or kill them and often this happens very painful and not by giving them a lethal injection or by shooting, which would be ok, yet not sustainable. I just recently heard, this happens not just in Romania, but also in Turkey. In Turkey, foreign aid organisations, which would organize and pay castration projects, aren´t even allowed to do this anymore.
