It’s still an animal cruelty story

It’s still an animal cruelty story December 10, 2012

In the interest of accuracy, I’ve got some new information in the story about the man who attempted to drown Dolly the cat.

First of all, that’s her new name, Dolly. Her new foster family picked it because she’s ‘just a doll’ and overwhelmingly friendly. She still needs to be adopted to a permanent loving home, but not until she makes a full medical recovery.

Second, it seems that ‘religious mania’ possibly played less of a part in this man’s rage than was previously communicated to me. He did indeed claim that Dolly was ‘from hell’ and ‘evil’ on Wednesday. However, this type of language was not present in his cage-rattling screaming rage fit at Highland Animal Hospital on Friday. His hateful Friday rant included an admission of attempting to drown the cat, and other troubling statements, but nothing religious. Who knows what this guy’s problem is, really.

It’s still an animal cruelty story. And you can help.

My wife rescued this (then very pregnant) abandoned cat, and she was placed with a foster family. All three of her kittens are now dead, and the circumstances are atypical even for the rare cases feline infanticide. She then survived a drowning attempt. This morning she was recovering from a ovariohysterectomy surgery, and is in stable condition. Two local media outlets have expressed interest, and I hope to see something soon.

    “ovariohysterectomy surgery” — Oh, come on now. Let’s just call a spayed a spayed.

    I didn’t know that you had strongly implicated religion in the first place. Whatever, dood has issues, and cat needs help. Wish I could donate. (Well, to lots of things, really.)

    • @F – I agree. I’m trying to be charitable to my friends at Thundering Paws. It’s hard for them to embrace the possible media attention if it comes with my baggage. I’ve preempted the usual discourse by not providing any quotes and directing the local media straight to TP. Hope it works! (This distancing is entirely voluntary and unprompted, FWIW)

      @dukeofomnium – well played.

    I’m sure Dolly will have no problem finding a forever home. She’s very cute, and if she’s as lovable as her helper-humans say, then people will flock to her.

    Is Tianna feeling any better?


    i was searching for gay-themed topics on google, when i saw a headline that went something like this: “does homosexual behavior in dogs tell me that i was born gay?”. now, i realize that to equate humans’ expansive understanding of life with dogs’ limited understanding is just a childlike thing to do (and makes google’s headline as moot a point as rick springfield telling jessie’s girl that he loves her), but it did get me thinking…

    if we are told that homosexual behavior in dogs says that humans are born gay, it should be legal to hump my dog who humps my leg. let me explain: if people compare humans to dogs in an effort to justify their own sexual deviancy, then inter-species sexual behavior in dogs should justify that i was born an inter-species humper. it should suggest that my having sex with dogs should not be regarded as problematic. if dogs hump members of their own gender then they were born gay, it’s as simple as that. if dogs can be born gay, i was born gay also. and if dogs hump outside of their species, they were born to be inter-species humpers. if dogs can be born inter-species humpers, then people also can be. therefore, i was born an animal abuser and i should not be looked down upon when i hump dogs.

    i can understand how the opposing (ahem, CONSERVATIVE) side would say that dogs are horny and that they don’t care what they hump. CONSERVATIVES would probably even relate this sexual apathy to homosexuals, blaming homosexuality on horniness as if we all lived in a single-gendered prison and had no other sexual options but to discover homosexuality within ourselves (and later maintain that we were BORN gay). the problem with conservatives (and heterosexuals not in prison) is that they just don’t understand the issues with self-esteem and gender-identity that homosexuals have. conservatives don’t understand what it’s like to see a discovery zone in members of their own gender, they only see a discovery zone in the opposite gender. they only stare in dumbfounded curiosity at naked members of the opposite sex, the conservative heterosexual (or any heterosexual) does not stare in dumbfounded curiosity at naked members of their own gender.

    dare i say that heterosexuals are “straight” with themselves as legitimate members of their own gender, dare i say that the lack of curiosity that keeps heterosexual men from regarding other mens’ bodies as “discovery zones” results in a life void of gay sex. i used to play a game called “king’s quest” as a boy. i remember this quote: “The leprechauns revere the power of the four-leafed clover. With it in your possession they will leave you absolutely alone.” i remember the leprechauns in the presence of the clover, they were spellbound and were walking around aimlessly like they couldn’t make sense of anything around them. isn’t that what sexual attraction is – i know that i couldn’t speak to matthew muchnok (or any big and strong football player) without fumbling around like a stuttering retard who was spellbound. just yesterday, i was getting chiropractic with anthony manes dc and i realize now that i must’ve seemed like such a wide-eyed man-worshipper, gawking in anticipation as i was talking to him. i am in spellbound fantasy every time i am in the presence of a MANtasy…and why would anyone stick their hand up someone’s ass if they weren’t spellbound? i’m sure that poop is disgusting to at least 90% of people, why doesn’t poop keep people from being curious of “fisting”? it’s because the curiosity of gender (sexual fantasy) trumps both reality and (quite frankly) common sense. to further my point, i will bring up a parody of steve winwood’s “don’t you know what the night can do” that i wrote. i called it “don’t you know what’s inside a dude”. i’ve seen enough gay porn to know that sexual gratification is obtained from someone sticking their hand up someone’s ass, i’m sure that the gay “men” (i use quotes because gay males are really emotional masculivoids) know what’s “inside a dude,” but gays just don’t care about anything except for satisfying their curiosity. they get an emotional high from their own gender like it’s something they’re not acquainted with, they think they were all born to be as “inexplicably curious” as a dog…but dogs’ curiosity is not bound by gender, so i therefore can justify the aforementioned google headline as a “moot point”.

    i have a mental image of “inexplicably curious” gays, it involves rainbow-colored question marks circulating around their heads 24 hours a day,

    let me get back to my original point. if society is wholeheartedly going to accept the “born gay” panacea (placebos look legitimate and taste legitimate, but they have no active ingredients to justify their actual legitimacy), then they should just accept that i was BORN to be a dog-humper. and NOBODY should try to give me any kind of therapy to curb my dog. er, my appetite for dogs.
