Repost: The Reason Why Adopting Than Buying Pets

You know all those cute guinea pigs and hamsters at your local pet store? This is where they come from.
While many people are familiar with the horrors of puppy mills, few know that other animals purchased large-scale by pet stores, such as rabbits and guinea pigs, endure the same awful conditions.
Warning: Disturbing content below.
A three-month undercover investigation conducted by PETA provides an inside look into Holmes Farm, a large Pennsylvania breeder that supplies animals to Petco, PetSmart, Pet Supplies Plus and other large pet store chains. And it's not pretty.
Investigators found that thousands of animals were being stored in plastic storage bins, stacked in shelving units and rarely checked on. The facility reeked of feces, PETA said. One floor was splattered in blood after cats were allowed to jump in and out of the crates and attack animals.
The rabbits were packed into tiny wire cages filled with piles of feces. Many of them had urine-stained feet or signs of severe illness. They were denied veterinary care.
"This lethargic rabbit was reported to a manager, who said that he would 'check on' the animal," PETA wrote of the animal below. "Later that day, the rabbit was found dead."
Investigators also witnessed literal piles of newborn mice thrown on top of each other in a box, calling out for their mothers "in a bin that smelled of death and excrement and was labeled 'Freeze,'" PETA said.
Hundreds of them were sealed in plastic bags and thrown in a freezer to die so they could be sold as snake food to owners who want a more humane alternative to live feeding. A clip shows the mice struggling to escape the packed bag; they were still alive 15 minutes later.
Investigators witnessed workers grabbing chinchillas by their tails and throwing hamsters between boxes that were several feet apart. Hamsters and gerbils exhibited severe signs of stress. 
Many of the animals had no water or or only filthy water available, leading to dozens of deaths. When the investigator found hundreds of mice without water and provided some, the animals "drank in a frenzy," PETA said.
In another incident, 50 small animals were piled into a cooler filled with feces and gassed.
Petco and PetSmart also returned sick and injured animals to the so-called farm, several of whom died shortly after. "Some rats evidently carried rat-bite fever—a potentially fatal disease transmissible to humans that has led to two lawsuits against Petco," PETA said.
Holmes Farm supplies animals to hundreds of pet stores along the East Coast, according to PETA, including chains like Petco, PetSmart and Pet Supplies Plus. 
Petco said on Tuesday it had already cut ties with Holmes Farm based on the results of its own investigation, a "regular part of our strict vendor oversight protocol." Yet PETA said that the Petco inspection was conducted on December 2, and the investigator witnessed orders with hundreds of animals being packed for Petco as late as early January.
Holmes Farm has passed several recent inspections by the USDA, an indictment perhaps of the federal department's lax oversight. Following PETA's report, the USDA conducted another inspection of the facility and has launched an investigation of Holmes Farms.
Sadly, scenes like this are the rule, not the exception for animals sold in pet stores. Whether it's a dog or a hamster, animals bred for retail are often kept in filthy conditions, exposed to abuse and illness, and deprived of water, veterinary care and other necessities.
If you're considering adding an animal to your family, consider adoption. Even small pets like guinea pigs and hamster can be found at shelters and rescue groups. To get started, visit Petfinder.com

Why so shy?.

Today while signing off at the finger print punch clock, I saw a donation box. It is exactly in front of a staff who sat there. With the few second pass by I wondering what the donation for but feel very shy to open wallet to put at least few ringgit with sincerity. Just as that my legs already few steps away.

Looking at another friend, I wanted to ask of what the donation about. I call her name few times but seems she didn't hear me. I give up and walk to my route.

At house, keep linger in my head of why I need to think of other's thought when it comes to doing a good deed. In the end it was me who showing a bad example to other. Someone that solat but too stingy and no heart (have no sympathy) to donate. Huhuhu.. 

My thought actually I'm too embarrassed to do good deed in front of other. Afraid being told a hypocrite, pretending and showing off. Sometimes I am too shy doing good deed unless they are my family. I usually not afraid nor care of peoples opinion, it just I myself too embarrassed thinking that as showing off. Cant understand how it relate, where the logic and hard to describe. huhu..

I have this problem since long ago. Only change that attitude after I think that actually is not a right thing to do. I think that not only me, but many other seems shy/ not confident to show kindness and instead showing off/ proud of the bad deed. For example, feel shy to read (in silence) Quran in public, instead feel proud not wearing tudung labuh as not willing to be included as 'muslimah'. Now I try to be not too shy of doing good deed so to be example to other. If I'm no better person, at least I'm not a source of people learn bad things.

Few years ago I heard a person talk proudly on how he abuse animals. And to be arrogant telling it infront of many peoples who seems confuse but did not object and just pretending laughing. Luckily one of them speak up and give advice to him. The incident make me thought, what problems with people's mind today. Those who did good feel embarrassed to a limit they just didn't do it, while those who did bad proud of it and become more arrogant that peoples feel shy to advice him, some people takes it as normal, personal matter and leave the oblivious continue to proud with own bad deed.

Just like a student that proud when they escape from class to the limit the other students salute her timid action.

A smoker start smoking thinking that is cool even though they knew it is bad to health

A thug feel arrogant able to bully weak people, or when they become the top in an organisation.

A worker who feel proud able to step on their boss and purposely looking for fight to be sighted by collages.

And even some people purposely want to be seen not too muslimah type as she feel it is quite embarrassing. (I did sometimes).

Sometime I want to share good article in FB, but shy it might be an embarrassing for someone like me. Only in this blog I have little courage because not many know its existence. hehehehehehe.. It is my Suri's site afterall.. hehehehe=))

Looking at that I then knew it is very wrong and know I should change myself or I became a bad example to others. Since then I change my attitude. However the sudden case today, within the few second my brain just working slower than my steps. I forget I should please Allah and doing things sincerely, not too focus on people or myself that it restrain from doing the good deed.

Ya Rabb, help me to be sincere in all things I'm doing and be it to please you and became benefits to myself and other. Even I may not an inspiring to others hopefully I'm not a source of negative impact and bad example to other. Amin..

  • Do good deed sincerely, don't be arrogant but you may show off with it in hoping it became a good example to attract other. Eg: Do proud wearing Palestine bandage, because it remind others and yourself to not forget our sisters showing your support and the little thing you can contribute, insyaAllah.
  • Never proud nor applaud for bad deed or else it become habit. It cause misconception of the wrong looks not ugly and causing people cannot differentiate the good and the bad. 
  • Im not a shy person. Maybe very slightly. hehe..

Mr Tuxe lost to Lion

My previous post has mentioned Mr Tuxe the infamous, mannerless but handsome gangster cat that always came to cause ruckus at our house. However these few days he seems didnt come.

On 31 Dec, while it havoc of people partying for new year,  lion and Mr tuxe also seems having their own's a grand final battle. I think it was 8pm when Mr tuxe wanted to come in but unfortunately stopped by lion who guarding at the cat entrance. Lion start hissing at Mr tuxe, when I shoo them to stop the fight. Since I was there, lion seems want to show off his braveness and start chasing Mr tuxe into bush.

They start their grand fight which are the loudiest I think. Cheetah, Olen, listening gruesomely to the fight. I think it was about 30 min, when I saw lion came back with mud and scratch all over his body. He seems OK except looks very tired and all that scratches which are normal for lion.

It is responsibility of pet owner to save their pet

It times for diner but lion seems too exhausted to even eat. I blab to lion for always fight with Mr tuxe. Lion is a good cat. He dosent like to wondering at others houses and I think he never went as far 30m from our house. However he is the bravest to protect our house from any invader. He never fight any other cats other than Mr tuxe who cames to our house. Even his big Bro abang monsta and botak likes to pick fight,  lion just let go and gave in to prevent fight. So all the scratches are caused by Mr tuxe.

With my beloved lion =))

Cheetah however is a coward that just hide whenever he sees danger. When Mr tuxe came, he will just hide silently. When he get slapped by Mr tuxe,  he just run away. However this coward boy are actually adventures. I think he went as far 200-400m away. He didn't good in mousing and didnt like eating it.  So his journey is purely to jolly his life. Maybe it is his motto "jauh perjalanan,  luas pemandanhan". After the very looong journey,  he is the one who seems most hungriest and tired every time he back home. Cheetah seldom has wound or scratches. 

Back to Mr tuxe,  its the fifth days of new year and Mr tuxe never show up. Maybe that night was their final battle that the victory goes to lion. Yesterday however I hear Mr tuxe voice singing sad soprano song from far place.  His female like voice that is very sweet to hear.

After about 3 month abusing us finally Mr tuxe surrender to my brave lion. During every night of their battle (2-4time every night), I have to wake up to break up the fight. Its not because I couldn't stand the noise, instead I considering the neighbors may distracted in their sleep.

Oddly some pets are very noisy at night 

To Mr tuxe, we (maybe its only me) didnt hate you. Do come anytime to eat, I consider it as an opportunity for me to be kind toward His creature. I also sincerely appreciate your intrude visit at night to wake me up forcing me for tahajud, because naturally I hardly wake up. Come as a friendly cat, Im willing to accept you especially when you are good at doing your poo business outside house. 

Note: talk about the devil.  He just have a hissing fight just now. Sigh...... Its really him. As usual the timing 11.30pm - 12am. He not able to get in I guess -_-
