Silent Sunday on Frequently Feline

We all know how fastidious cats are about their cleanliness. But this little guy seems to have taken that instinctual drive to unchartered levels. My cats are not fond of vacuum cleaners by any means, but this little guy seems to be enjoying a good time, riding around on a Roomba Driver vacuum cleaner which may interest my "kids" Uploaded to YouTube by poutamo this video is a blast.

Do you think your pets would be so inclined to follow this kitty's lead? Leave a comment and let us know.

HSUS Exposes Puppy Mill Sales

The Humane Society of the United States has just completed an eight month long investigation into puppy mill cruelty. This is one of the biggest projects they have undertaken thus far in part of a series designed to expose the cruelty of puppy mills, and dog auctions.

I was startled by the results of their study which was posted on the Humane Society Legislation Fund's blog, Michael Markarian reported the findings of this recent study involving over 20 Petland pet stores. Petland is one of the largest chains of stores in the country. HSUS learned that Petland is selling puppies purchased from abusive puppy mills from Missouri and across the mid-west. But what is even more outrageous, according the HSUS, is that Petland staff is telling customers that the puppies for sale are obtained from reputable breeders, who provide the best care for their stock. HSUS also reports that Petland staff continues the deception by strongly denying any connection with puppy mills and telling potential buyers that they only deal with the best of kennels. Some of Petland's puppies are also obtained from brokers and middlemen, with the information about the breeders only learned after the puppies have been shipped to the stores.

HSUS adds that with over 140 Petland stores across the United States, tens of thousands of puppies are sold every year, which are purchased from unethical facilities, which are only in the business for the money, and who care little about the dogs they are producing.

What is more upsetting is that people who are purchasing these puppies, which of course fill the coffers of these unprincipled puppy mills, trust Petland staff to be honest. HSUS strongly feels that Petland should not be supporting this industry and should emulate leading retailers like PETCO and Pet Smart which have set responsible policies for their pet sales, and work in tandem with shelters, adoption agencies and rescue groups.

My opinion is that The Humane Legislative Fund needs to be congratulated for the work they are doing to build public awareness and to lobby for policies which may put an end to the horrible abuses which is rampant in the puppy mill industry.

You can read Petland's response to HSUS by visiting: Petland Information.

Watch the video uploaded to You Tube by HSUS to learn more about Petland's dirty little secret. You can help by contacting Petland's corporate headquarters to let them know about your concern for puppy mills. Ask them to stop selling puppies procured from puppy mills and to join alongside with retailers who are ethical. Together we can make a difference.
