I’m not sure what’s with the myth about a cat’s nine lives – or seven, like we say in Greek and apparently in Spanish. But the truth is one, and this video that someone recommended makes it more clear than ever.
It is very difficult for any creator to make its audience laugh and cry, within only a few minutes. The video is in Spanish, but even if you don’t speak the language, the animation will help you understand the story. It’s the story of almost every cat, in seven lives – the seventh being the story of my Cinnamon and the most devastating of all for me.
The bottom line is one, as Patukos, the animated cat says it in the end:
‘For you, we are “something”, merchandise, a toy, fun. But you know what? I am not “something”, I am “someone” (…) and of course, I only have one life. A life that I love because it’s my life, my fuckin’ life. My only life”.
Rescue cats can range from quite feral (at least at the beginning) to unbelievably affectionate and human centered. Powder was the latter. In fact, in my mind, Powder was always a person. He appeared to have the wisdom, the depth of emotions and the social intelligence of a human.
I have been wanting to do this for so long. What happens here in Greece every single day can never be covered by my daily blogs or a rescue video I upload per week. For every story you see, read or hear, there are about a dozen others that you will never hear about.
Amazing, tough, dedicated and inspiring, these eight women just…deserve to be here. Today it’s Women’s Day, so this post is about these eight women that I know, admire and respect. Some of them have gone viral through my videos, and some haven’t. Animal Welfare in Greece is a heavy load, mainly falling on women’s shoulders. So, here they are:
Paralyzed dogs (and cats) might end up in that state due to many reasons, but in Greece, 99% of them were left paralyzed due to a human. Either victims of a hit and run, shot (it happens more often than you can imagine) or simply kicked and beaten, they are left paralyzed and rarely get adopted.
