World Farm Animals Day.

By the way, it's World Farm Animals Day. Did you know that? No? Well, go check it out. Learn all about the awesomeness of farm animals and why they should not be dinner. Did you know that pigs are smarter than 3-year-old kids? Actually, you may have, because that's a pretty oft-cited statistic. Mama hens cluck to their chicks before they're hatched, and the chicks peep back! How cute is that? Cows are sensitive and awesome in every way, and suffer terribly when their calves are taken from them. And do I really need to educate you about veal? Do I?

I can't wait until November 21, so we can drive down to Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary for their annual (I just mistakenly typed "animal") Thanksgiving with the Turkeys. Poplar Spring is amazing and I made dozens of new animal friends last year. I felt so healthy and peaceful after we left. All animals should have such safe, happy lives as those who live at Poplar Spring.

So, if you're having someone for dinner tonight, make sure it's someone who can give permission first. *nudgewinknudge*

I love Highland cattle. They just look so friendly. Photo ripped from Wikimedia Commons.


  1. Those are some cute cattle. They remind me of Snuffleupagus.

  2. Oh my...those furry cows are quite possibly the cutest critters I have ever seen, and I have a beagle so that is definitely saying something. :-)

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I find the quinoa milk quite regularly here in Saudi Arabia, which is saying something since usually the stores here carry nothing of interest. It is Ecomil brand, I believe. But I usually just make my own almond milk at home, tasty, cheap and fun. :-)
