The Inconsistency Of Views Towards Animal Rights

  • Posted on December 8, 2017 at 9:35 am

Among other reasons, I became a vegan because I cannot justify needlessly killing an animal. If I needed to kill and eat animals to survive, I would. However, we do no longer need to kill animals to survive. A person can just as easily survive without eating meat, while remaining just as healthy.

In fact, we have the technology to essentially create meat without killing animals, considering how simple of a substance meat is. We recreate meat in the form of meat substitutes, such as soy burgers.

Despite their ability to live easily without killing animals for food, many people still choose to eat meat. These people do not grant animals the right to life. If a person murdered another person and then ate that other person, almost all people would adamantly oppose it. Meanwhile, these same people slaughter animals without giving it a second thought.

It is hard to understand why murdering a human is so objectionable while murdering an animal is not. Most of us vegans and animal rights supporters view that as very inconsistent.

The inconsistency of people’s views towards animal rights goes further, though. While people carelessly murder animals because they like the taste of meat and the look of leather, these same people fall heads over heels about “cuter” animals. For example, pigs are generally smarter than dogs, but many people object to the idea of needlessly murdering and eating a dog.

People look at Michael Vick like he is a monster for organizing dog fights, which is utterly hypocritical and inconsistent. Fighting dogs probably do not suffer any more than factory-farmed chickens who are debeaked, stuffed into an over-packed cage, and eventually slaughtered. Why do people think it is fine to make animals suffer for the enjoyment of leather or the taste of a meaty burger, but not for the entertainment of a dog fight?

Of course, many people have inconsistent views when it even comes to entertainment and animal rights. Having dogs fight or cock fights for entertainment is seen as wrong and often made illegal, but hunting for entertainment is a common pastime.

Some may try to excuse the inconsistency by saying that killing is not as horrible as making the animal suffer while staying alive. However, there is still more inconsistency here. Why then do they not have a problem with animal testing? Animal testers carelessly torture animals with unsafe and dangerous products to make perfumes and other needless products. If needlessly torturing animals for petty pleasures is so objectionable to these people, it is inconsistent for them to buy beauty products that have been tested on animals.

Simply put, most people base their views regarding animal rights on emotions rather than on rationality, which results in irrational inconsistencies. Many people do not want to reconsider their inconsistent views regarding animal rights, because that would likely lead to giving up meat, leather, and other animal products.

Mini Turtles As Pets

  • Posted on December 7, 2017 at 10:49 am

Mini turtles, because of their size, make popular choices for reptile enthusiasts.

Various types of turtles remain relatively small throughout their life span. If you are looking for a moderately proportioned turtle, the mud turtle would be a great selection. Two individual species, the Common Mud turtle and the Striped mud turtle never grow any longer than 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) and average at 3 inches (7.6 cm). Two other types of mud turtle, the Yellow mud turtle and the Sonoran mud turtle boast the adult size of around six inches (15.2 cm), which is about the same length as the Chinese Pond Turtle, also known as Reeves Turtle.

The average size of the spotted turtle and the musk turtle is given as 5 inches (12.7 cm). This specification excludes the Razorback musk turtle, which can grow to 6 inches (15.2 cm). Due to an unusual defence mechanism, musk turtles are sometimes called stinkpots. One of their distinguishing features is the stripe that decorates each side of the faces. This breed comes out at night or early in the morning, when they soak up sunlight and warmth. They swim quite well and also have a talent for clambering up the branches of trees from the water. As juveniles, their diet comprises mainly meat, although they will learn to appreciate the taste of duckweed and water hyacinth as they mature. Pet owners could provide them bloodworm, mealworms, insects and commercial turtle pellets to eat. Remember to include a calcium supplement to promote healthy bone and shell development.

As pets, Reeves turtles are known for their interesting character as well as their enthusiastic feeding. With kind treatment, they will soon show their gregarious side. If you keep only one of them as pet, a tank with the capacity to hold 20 to 30 gallons will be sufficient. For a larger community of turtles, more space will obviously be required.

If you do obtain a Reeves turtle or mud turtle, remember that these two types of turtles are often taken against the law from their natural environment. Under those circumstances, they may have suffered trauma or been injured and this could negatively affect their disposition. The presence of parasites could need your attention. It is always better and more humane to buy from a registered breeder of captive turtles, as these would be used to interacting with people.

Mini turtles are engaging and fascinating to observe and handle. Prospective owners should however bear in mind that they are sometimes carriers of the disease salmonella. Persons specifically vulnerable to infection are the elderly, pregnant women, children under the age of five, organ transplant patients, cancer victims, liver patients and diabetics. With the proper precautions in place, such as washing hands after interactions, mini turtles could still make great pets.

Pets In The Classroom Grant Program Sets Goal Of Reaching 5 Million Children

  • Posted on November 19, 2017 at 3:53 pm

With more than 500,000 elementary and middle school students having already been given the opportunity to interact with pets on a daily basis in their classroom, the Pet Care Trust board has announced a new goal for its Pets in the Classroom Grant Program: Within the next five years, Pets in the Classroom will introduce 5 million children in 100,000 classrooms to pets and the benefits they provide.

The new goal for this teacher grant program comes after the much quicker-than-anticipated growth of the program in the last couple of years:

The Trust Board set a long-term goal of reaching 1 million kids by providing 30,000 Pets in the Classroom grants, said Pet Care Trust executive director Steve King. We have reached the half-way point to this goal far sooner than any of us thought possible. It really is a remarkable achievement thanks to the Boards foresight and the support of so many pet retailers and suppliers.

While the growth of the program began slowly, providing 3,200 grants in the 2010-2011 school year, the addition of Pets in the Classroom grants through Petsmart and Petco, along with rebate grants supported by independent pet stores, resulted in an increase to over 6,000 grants for the 2011-12 school year. Also, in the beginning of 2012, the program expanded to include 7th and 8th grade classrooms, while in previous years the grants had only been available to pre-k – 6th grade teachers. This expansion to include middle school classrooms increased the number of students impacted by the grants, making the overall average of students impacted over 50 students per classroom. Then, in preparation for the 2012-13 school year, the Trust added additional programs through Pet Supermarket and Carolina Biological Supply. The response from teachers in the first two months of this new school year has been overwhelming. More than 6,800 grants have been issued since August 1, bringing the total to 15,500 grants since the programs inception.

The Pets in the Classroom program benefits students by teaching them responsible, long-term pet care at an early age and providing the psychological and developmental benefits associated with the human-animal bond. Studies have shown that caring for pets has a positive effect on children, improving school attendance and teaching children responsibility, as well as encouraging nurturing and building self esteem.

Animal Print Bedding Kids Love It

  • Posted on November 8, 2017 at 10:27 am

An animal print has an inherent appeal to people of all ages. For the older ones, it is a throwback to the psychedelic and groovy decades of the past, for the even older ones it is a way to reminisce the early years of the modern era. And for the young ones today, it is a way to connect with their fantasies and interests in animals and the animal kingdom. For these kids, the best way to use animal fabric is through animal print bedding.

Animal bedding is a way for kids to have a piece of the animal kingdom, without actually harming an animal. Why? Because unlike in the old days wherein having the pattern of a cheetah or a tiger meant killing those animals, today animal bedding uses artificially made animal prints. These are fabrics that are traditionally used, like cotton or some other synthetic fabric, printed with the design of the animals. It may not be as soft, or as luxurious, as the original thing, but these fabrics are a lot cheaper, a lot more accessible, and do not require any deaths of the animals the kids love!

But when getting animal bedding, there are a couple of things that need to be remembered. First, is to make sure of the size and shape of the bed and the pillows. It’s a hassle to buy bedding, only to find out upon going home that the bed is too large, or that the pillows are too fluffy to fit! Next, and arguably more important, is to make sure that the bedding pieces are from the same manufacturer, to make sure that the colors, print, and style of the bedding are uniform. Nothing’s worse than finding out after buying a number of pieces that reds look like pinks, oranges look like yellows, and the print sizes are different. The best solution to this is to buy a bed in a bag.

Remember these tips when getting animal print bedding and you’ll be giving your child a very stylish bedroom!

The leopard printed couture is always sexy and special and animal print gowns never go out of style. After I have shared some royal long blue prom gowns in almost every shade of blue, shining gold prom gowns and gothic style clothes with you, this time I will share some wonderful styles in animal print with you. Whether in cocktail-length or full-length, the prom gowns with animal print can be the same stunning and fantastic.

Dont listen to those naysayers who deny the animal printed clothes. Animal printed clothes have nothing to do the protection of the animals. You dont have to worry about that the animal dresses will break the laws. As I have mentioned above, the animal printed gowns will be in fashion trend forever. There may be a lull, but pretty soon. There are three main prints in womens favorite styles, the leopard, cheetah and zebra print gowns. Among them, the leopard and cheetah printed gowns are classic, stylish and sexy. The zebra prints look amazing on those who are more daring. To be frankly, most women tend to choose the leopard printed prom dresses to attend in their splendid prom nights or red carpets.

The zebra printed prom dresses are special for some women who want to show off their fashion confidence. But it is also truly that not every woman can hold the wild zebra printed prom gowns in the big and important events, for they even dont have a clear idea whether if the zebra printed prom gowns are really fit for the occasions. if you dont want to go full out with giraffe printed gowns, you can still have animal print accessories like the animal bracelets and handbags. Yes, handbags in animal prints are also adored by many fashionable women who appear in the red carpets or some hot evening dinner party. This lens is about animal print clothes, so what I do is to make you have a good knowledge of the animal printed gowns and animal printed accessories.

I have mentioned above that whether it is in short or long, the animal printed gowns can be stunning. What is the difference between leopard and cheetah spots? Ok, I will show you in some easy words. For example, the cheetah spots are typically much simpler than leopard spots. A real cheetah print will consist of simple black and solid spot. And what is the most important thing is that the leopard spots on the other hand usually are cluster of black spots with some brown regions. And the leopard prints tend to look more like complicated rosettes than just dots, which is the best way to judge the leopard prints from the cheetah prints.

After you have known these, you will be clear in the animal print prom dresses when you are making such selections.
