WCB 19 - Mountain Lion Edition

Cat food bloggers unite every weekend and share photos of your gorgeous kitties with us!

If you would like to be included, just leave me a comment with your permalink! and add a "weekend cat blogging" tag to your post!

If you would like to participate in WDB 5 (Weekend Dog Blogging) please go visit the lovely Sweetnicks and send her an email!


Hi this is Kiri, all of you lovely people out there in the blogging world who like to look at me and my fellow cute kitties need to think about our wild compatriots. No, not just our poor feral cousins. But our big cat bretheran. Like the Mountaion lion in America. Everyone likes to keep pet cats and dogs but neglects our big brothers and sisters. I urge you as caring animal lovers to help fight the slaughter of the big cats. But really they don't just need to not be shot, they need somewhere safe to raise their kittens, play and hunt, with out fear. It is not only the yummy birds and cutsie small mammals that need to be protected, it is the big beautiful predators that help structure the animal community that need your protection.

I urge you to help by donating money to a worthy cause for people who do fight on my cous's behalf like the Moutain Lion Federation if you want to donate money go here.

But please speak out about the Lion slaughter that they want to start in Oregon, where they
plan to kill 782 cougars per year for the next five years, and specifically target females. Think of all the poor cubs who will be left motherless.... then look at your own pet kitty and think about what makes you love them.... then consider how similar they are except these guys get to live free .

I would like to thank Catherine, the kitty lover from Food Musings for letting me know about this *smooch*

If you do make a donation let me know, as I would like to keep a running WCB tally, I am going to be talking to my parents about the donation they are about to make.

THE WCB19 donation count is at $20!!!!

Great post. Kiri, thanks for bringing up such an important subject. But you appear to be a little perturbed today. . . are you trapped? : )

Nic said...

Kiri certainly is ambitious!
And I'm glad you brought up the mountain lions, Claire. I would like to think that there are better solutions.

Hi Marie
You have no idea, if I could only capture on film Kiri's acrobatics I would make a fortune on Funniest home vidoes LOL

Hi Nupur
Almost settled, just a few boxes left :) and feeling much better! Kiri is sooooo muscley!
I am so glad you liked the book :) such a great story

Hi Fg
I scared Kiri and he went into fright cat pose very cute :) I just put the flyscreen up. I am worried though as I think he mave have opened the door, he has already figured out how to open the laundry door.. luckily it is the only one with a lever handle.

Hi Nic
Oh that is ezy peaxy for Kiri LOL

Hi Indira
Kiri is happy to be back.... almost as much as me!

Hi Cin
Settling in well! I think I might even get a garden YAY!

Thank you for the headsup about the cougar slaughter.

The good news about it (there is always a silver lining) is that means that the numbers of them are up--always a good sign.

Here is my weekend update  on Minnaloushe, our poor sickly kitty:

hi Clare, im glad to see that Kiri is settling in, or perhaps he's trying to escape? :) Either way, he looks like he's having a heck of a good time!

kitchenmage said...

Gak! What are you feeding that cat? Some sort of weird anti-gravity food?

My furling, still unnamed, is here.

Another great shots of Kiri!

Hey Clare, kudos to you for using Eat Stuff to advertise a worthy cause. You should read the book Prodigal Summer  by Barbara Kingsolver. It's a novel, but a large portion of it discusses why killing off predators is a bad, bad idea.

Kiri does look like he's trying to make a run for it ;)

Hi Michele
KIRI LOVES to jump LOL and wear his harness... but that is a whole nother post...

Hi Keiko
Thanks!

Hi Amy
That sounds like a great book! I have read a book called Wild America which focuses on the failure of America to care for the wolf, and how the wildlife department instead of caring for them focuses on killing them. So SAD!
