I was watching a bee drink from the watering station I put in the garden for them! I have been spending so much time with them in the flowers and clover in the paddock so I built a safe place they can drink from in a crystal bowl with moss and pebbles and colourful glass rocks. I went to top it up with water this morning and saw her land on the moss and have a drink. I was so excited I was just kneeling in the dirt so close that my nose was almost touching her and I felt incredibly happy and loud inside. I’m going to visit again tomorrow and see if she’s told her friends about it. Whisper to your moving neighbours sweet sun drop I will make you another place to share, even bigger !
His twin brother wasn’t that lucky.
mirorr-of-erised said: as a vegan, what do you think about the ice bucket challenge? I'm really ambivalent about it, idk what to think :(
they (ALS association) conduct a lot of animal testing (mice had holes drilled into their brains and were inflicted with crippling illnesses, monkeys had chemicals injected into their brains and backs only to later be killed for dissection etc)
so if you do do the ice bucket challenge, at least direct your donations towards a foundation with supports humane ALS research such as ‘compassionate care’. see this article for more info: http://www.pcrm.org/nbBlog/index.php/als-association-put-the-animal-experiments-on-ice/ xx
This is my friend Sandy, She died yesterday.
Sandy is a “broiler” Chicken, She was rescued earlier this year from a “free range” chicken farm (the sort the RSPCA endorse) She Wasn’t even 6 months old, and her legs and heart gave out. Her siblings would have been killed much earlier, but this is what you pay for when you buy Chicken flesh. Chickens are beautiful, intelligent and loving, and my friend Sandy never deserved to die this way. Her own body betraying her :( Her Friend Tiny will soon die too, he was rescued from the same “free range” farm, his legs have started to give out and he can barely walk.
Every year billions of chickens are killed for human consumption, please don’t contribute to this.
