Fave Photo: Get Out of My Bed!

We have six cat beds around our house, but our two cats both LOVE this one. I guess he thought if he stared at her long enough she’d move. She didn’t.


He’s the older cat so you’d think he’d try to kick her out, but he’s pretty passive and he’s a total sweetheart. I’ve had this cat bed for years and could never find another one just like it. Guess I should try looking again.

Video I Love: First Time in the Water

A rescued bear after years spent on a bile farm where he was likely kept in a very small cage. His excitement is nothing short of beautiful.

Quote I Love: Never Remain Silent


“…each and every one of us is responsible for contributing to the character of our nation. And, unfortunately, racism, homophobia, misogyny, religious intolerance, and so many other forms of bigotry continue to disfigure its character. If this is ever going to change, it will only happen because we refuse to put up with it any longer.

…we who place human dignity at the pinnacle of morality must never remain silent when confronted by prejudice, intolerance, and hatred. Let our refusal to do so stand as our tribute to the lives that were taken today.”

-Jeffrey L. Falick
