Maddy Update

You may recall that, last weekend, I posted about Maddy, a little cat who'd been shot in the face.

Well, after $3,000 worth of surgery, Maddy is home and recuperating. According to her person, alceria, $2,300 has been raised online to help defray medical expenses, mainly by people she's never met.

The internet can be a beautiful thing. Let's all try to remember the good of it, and little Maddy, today as we're getting sucked into stupid flame wars with idiots.

Don't Shoot the Cat

About a month ago, I discovered that an asshat in Wisconsin wanted to make shooting feral cats legal.

There is now an activist website, Dontshootthecat.com, stirring up action to prevent this from happening. There was a vote on "Question 62" this past Monday, the 11th; it's a sort of census vote, to see if people would want to vote on this becoming a law. And although it was close, the total vote was 6,830 in favor of shooting kitties and 5,102 opposed.

Scary, sad and sick. I think it's time to start boycotting cheddar.
