About Me

Just a poor liberal lesbian living in the deep south. Don't expect me to be nice just because I am a liberal. I am kind of bitchy with an attitude problem.

This weekend begins the quest for the kitties.

This is the weekend I go looking for Splitface and MamaKitty's babies. They should be around 4-5 weeks old. Plenty old enough to start eating dry food.




Please help me spay/neuter feral cats. http://www.gofundme.com/meowomon

Viewers Are Quitting 'Game Of Thrones' After That Controversial Scene

"Game of Thrones" has chopped off heads, castrated characters and slaughtered them in wedding blood baths. But HBO tested the limits of many viewers with a recent scene involving sexual assault.

Sunday night's episode of "GoT" will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most controversial episodes of the series. In the episode, Sansa Stark marries Ramsay Bolton, a character known as the most sadistic, evil and twisted in all of the Seven Kingdoms. During the wedding night, Ramsay forces Sansa to undress and proceeds to violently rape her as he forces his slave Reek (formerly known as Theon, Sansa's childhood companion) to watch the horrific act.

It was an incredibly disturbing and upsetting scene to watch, prompting a public response from author George R.R. Martin. But the episode has also turned some people away from the show for good.

Feminist site The Mary Sue declared on Monday that they would no longer be covering "Game of Thrones" following Sunday night's rape scene. Jill Pantozzi, editor-in-chief of The Mary Sure, wrote that the scene was "not necessary to Sansa’s character development," nor necessary to further prove Ramsay's evil nature. Pantozzi noted that Sansa is already a survivor and thus, "rape here, like in all instances, is not a necessary story-driving device."

I dreamed of kittens.

Hundreds of kittens. Just an update on my quest to get some feral cats fixed. I had a dream the other night that I went looking for the kittens that Mamakitty and Splitface had recently. ( Pictures in this post http://www.democraticunderground.com/116121812) Those are the two tortie cats. I went to the vacant lot behind my house and found, not a few kittens, but hundreds of adorable 3-4 week old kittens.

LOL, I was so overwhelmed with kittens. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to spay/neuter them all. I think on my next day off, I am going to see if I can locate Mamakitty and Splitface's little brood. Maybe if I find them, I can get the process of trapping the adult cats sooner. I can't start trapping until the new babies can eat solid food. I need to know they are safe. Maybe if I find them early enough, they can be adopted out as pets. Any thoughts?

While I would never desecrate a US flag, I defend your right to do so!

I think I just got blocked by an old high school friend on Facebook. She had a stupid meme about respecting the flag and about many soldiers who died for that flag. I told her that #1 no one die for a flag. That if they did fight in our armed forces, that they fought, in their minds, for American freedom. #2 that the Supreme court already upheld "desecrating" the flag as free speech.(Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989)) and #3 most importantly didn't she respect the US Constitution?

I guess I pissed her off. LOL, America.Her idea of patriotism? America. Love it or leave it. Get the fuck out she said. I just don't understand how that is freedom.

Thank you to the DU Community!! (pictures)

I recently started a GoFundMe account to help me Trap, Neuter and Release some feral cats I have been feeding for about 5 years. I have been in touch with several Animal Aid Societies, but they don't really have the funds to help me. Their spay/neuter vouchers go to the most needy who have pets they need spay/neutered.

With mostly help from generous DU members, I have raise enough to take care of at least 4 cats. I will start trapping in June when the mama kitties start bringing their new babies up to the food bowl. I need to make sure they are old enough to live on cat food, not mother's milk.

Here are some new pictures of some of the cats. These were taken today. Actually the cats are letting me get closer and closer. As they gathered on the front porch near their feeding time, I opened the door. As usual they scattered and hissed. But they only scattered about 6 feet this time.






Thank you DU! Thank you for helping me take care of these beautiful feral cats.


Some of my rescue babies.

Here are a few pics of my feral babies. (Picture heavy)

These are some of the fur babies I want to spay/neuter and release. I have set up a gofundme account and would like to advertize to get about $1000 to spay/neuter these wonderful animals. I will be using the Tallahassee Animal Aid Society, otherwise known as the spay/neuter clinic. Any leftover money from the account will be donated to them. These photos were taken out my front window where I feed water them. They live in culverts and in the empty lot behind my house. Can you please help? http://www.gofundme.com/tcsdpw
