    My better half an I have rescued another couple of feral kittens. They’re young enough that we’re socializing them, and will be able to add them to our houseful of other cats.

    One, though, has had a rough start. He’s about 10 weeks old & still doesn’t weigh a pound (14.2 oz). He’s been at the emergency vet since Monday. My wife’s decided that he’ll be my birthday present, so I wanted to get some thoughts on a name for the little guy.

    She suggested Zebulon or Little Bear. I thought of Zorro (he’s all black) or Little Cleavon (after Cleavon Little).

    it says they have been doing it “secretly” for more than 10 years… I a country that is famous for it’s hams I suspect there is another motivation than political correctness. Like some hospital official taking a bribe from a muzz meat vendor perhaps.

    Egyptian Press services notice that International coverage of the events in Egypt widely favor the Muslim Brotherhood.

    “At a time when the SIS expresses its respect for the freedom of opinion and expression, it noticed that some media coverage has steered away from objectivity and neutrality that are internationally common, according to a certain political agenda; a state of affairs that led to conveying a distorted image that is very much far from the facts and media coverage. This raises many questions about the neutrality of this media coverage and its goals out of the following considerations:

    First: Egypt is feeling severe bitterness towards some Western media coverage that is biased to the Muslim Brotherhood and ignores shedding light on violent and terror acts that are perpetrated by this group in the form of intimidation operations and terrorizing citizens let alone killing of innocent people and setting churches and public and private property on fire along with storming police stations and blocking roads and all other forms of thuggery and sabotage.

    Second: Some media sources are still falling short of describing the events of June 30 as an expression of a popular will where millions of people took to the street to express themselves.

    Third: Despite the danger of “Al-Qaeda” organization at the international level, the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood has sought the support of some of its elements is completely ignored. Some Egyptian media organs have noticed on Friday that more than five vehicles have entered Ramsis square, in Cairo downtown, carrying masked elements carrying the black flag of al-Qaeda along with automatic weapons amid celebrations by the Muslim Brotherhood elements who were present in the square.

    Fourth: Despite an escalation by the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of the ousted president, police men, in cooperation with the Armed Forces men and through popular assistance, managed to carry out all missions assigned to them and were able to control the security situation in face of the terrorist attempts by the Muslim Brotherhood to fling the country into violence. This situation refutes allegations about a civil war in Egypt in accordance with comments by experts and analysts with international research centers (such as the Middle East Studies Institute and the US Foreign Relations Council along with Brookings Institute).

    Fifth: Several media sources are seeking to focus on Western political stances that are adopting an approach different from the Egyptian one while making inaccurate remarks about the situation in Egypt ignoring this way several Arab and regional stances supporting Egypt in its war against terrorism such as the stances of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain and the UAE. The importance of these stances lies in the fact that they came from capitals that have a regional influence and are associated with strong political and strategic relations with Western quarters; an indication to the possibility for backing the Egyptian State’s stance in the face of terrorism and Western political and media doubting campaigns.”

    Oh. And we’re (temporarily) taking care of a stray dog. She got loose from our neighbors who were going to get rid of her anyway. A co-worker’s going to take her sometime next week. Very sweet pit bull, about 7-8 years old. Very thin, but we’ll get her fattened up.

    pits are funny dogs, they don’t always eat like you think dogs do. mine would walk away chicken or steak if she wasn’t hungry… if a 7 yr old is thin it might not be abuse, she just might be a finicky eater.

    @ brookly red:

    Well, the vet was concerned about her weight. She went in today for rabies shots & to see if she had worms (negative on heartworm & roundworm). She’s not very active- age might have a bit to do with it. She’s also dehydrated. We’ll keep an eye on her for a few days, then let her go to her new home.

    It’s disgusting how people treat their animals. And their kids.

    LOS ANGELES — Sterilizing feral cats without removing their sexual organs would do more to control their population than spaying and neutering, according to a new study.
    Colonies of feral cats can grow at a rapid pace, leaving them to compete in miserable conditions and causing the deaths of millions of birds, small mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish.
    In urban areas, wild-born cat colonies can create health hazards to humans and other species.
    In the United States, the population of wild-born cats exceeds that of cats living with humans, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, which published the study in its monthly journal.
    Traditional population control through spaying and neutering also tamps down hormone production, reducing behaviors such as territorial fighting and spraying.
    But veterinarians from Tufts University’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine propose that performing vasectomies and hysterectomies instead would preserve hormone-driven behavior that can help reduce a colony’s reproduction rates.
    Sex drive and social status would remain intact, allowing males to protect turf from other feral males, ward off new strays, and compete for females, which go into a prolonged state of “nonreceptive” pseudo-pregnancy after sexual activity. The result: fewer successful matings, the researchers conclude.

    dehydrated is a bad sign… but things are getting better. Pets, (even undocumented ones) now qualify for food stamps, free cell phones, medical care and in-state tuition… don’t laugh a BBS (Bachelors of Butt Sniffing) does qualify one for a union job with TSA.

    No seriously, what would happen to the new world order if males actually defended their territory and females actually nurtured their young? We would have secure borders and functioning schools and a very very small government. Much less crime, no welfare at all and foreign policy would be like duh, … liberal hate hormones.

    no exactly wrong. if you are a suspected terrorist getting on a plain in pittsburg heading for dallas that is exactly the type of info leo needs… now the fact that homeland is not tracking people who went to bomb schooling in pakistan but rather home schooling in iowa is the problem not that they are tracking-but whom and why.
