People prefer to believe that fish do not feel pain but they very much do. Increased heart rate, increased breathing rate, adrenaline rush, writhing, gasping - fish display similar signs to humans when under stress and faced with dangerous situations. Fish feel pain out of biological necessity, just as all mammals do. They possess a brain, central nervous system and pain receptors all over their bodies. Without the ability to feel pain they would not survive. They also produce enkephalins and endorphins, chemicals known to counter pain in humans. Scientific reports from around the world substantiate these basic realities and, thereby, underscore the cruelty and suffering inherent in the catching and killing of fish. Source: Animal AidPhoto: Occupy For Animals

orange peels

next time you eat n orange, don’t throw away the peel. you can use it. you’ll be surprised how versatile it is.

- moisten a peel with water to wipe oily, dirty dishes. they will be clean and shiny.

- polish furniture with it.

- wrap it in gauze and put it in bathwater.vitamins C and A moisten and soothe your skin.

- dice it into small and thin pieces for orange marmalade.

- make potpourri. place peelings on an open newspaper and let them dry until they turn hard. then put them in a cotton bag and hang it in the room. odors will disappear.

- clean the tatami or bamboo mat. boil the peels for about 15 minutes. dampen a cloth with the boiled water and wipe the tatami or bamboo mat until it’s clean and fresh.

- place some dried peels in the microwave and cook them for 1 minute. the inside of the microwave will smell fresh.

-boil dried peels for 15 minutes. after that you can use the boiled water as a glass cleaner.

(Bunnies and Sunshine)

Easter is coming up! And it’s a terrible time for pet store bunnies!

Rabbits are marketed as “easy”, short-lived, starter pets, especially during the Easter holidays, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! A healthy, well cared for bunny can live just as long as the average cat or dog- 10-12 years!

What’s more, they have more complex needs than a cat or a dog. Rabbits are prey animals and do not behave or show affection in the same way as predators like cats and dogs; they don’t deal well with being outside-only animals; they can get sad if they’re on their own and don’t receive enough attention; and if they’re bought as a male and female couple, they can start reproducing from as early as 5-6 months of age, and they can carry multiple litters at the same time!

They have a specialised diet (NOT carrots!), need a specialised living area (unless you want all your things to get chewed up!), and they need specialised vets! Caring for them costs as much as caring for a dog!

They’re a big responsibility!

This Easter, Make Yours Chocolate!

i observe men in silence, how they leave plates on dining room tables, how they slam doors, how they take up whole couch with legs sprawled and lounging arms, how they do not filter speech, too confident, too loud. voices always violent, everything a war.
