Thursday Stress-buster: Insouciant cats

Insouciant (definition):

Carefree, nonchalant, indifferent; casually unconcerned.

And a playful baby elephant!

Michigan cop rescues baby skunk with head stuck in yogurt pot

Wandering around on the net, I found this video of a very kind police officer coming to the rescue of a hungry baby skunk who got its head stuck inside a yogurt container.

The AP reports (via Detroit Free Press) that on Sunday morning, August 2, 2015, Officer Merlin Taylor of Rochester Police in Michigan was called to the 400 block of W. Third St. because a baby skunk was running in circles in the street with its head stuck in an empty yogurt pot.

Watch how Officer Taylor gingerly approached the skunk and then, with swiftness and dexterity, pulled the container from the skunk’s head and quickly jumped away to avoid being sprayed.

Fortunately, baby skunks can’t spray like adults.

It is not the first time Officer Taylor has come to the rescue of animals in trouble.

A couple of years ago he saved some baby ducks that fell down a storm drain.

God bless this kind man!

Debauched Oxford University students raped a goat

Within England’s elitist Oxford University is a secret society called the Piers Gaveston Society.

As described by the UK newspaper, The Guardian, the Piers Gaveston is a “highly exclusive” men-only club, made up of a self-selecting group of 12 undergraduates. Named after the alleged male lover of Edward II, king of England from 1307 to 1327, the Society was founded in 1977 and carries the Latin motto “Fane non memini ne audisse unum alterum ita dilixisse” or, in English:

“Truly, none remember hearing of a man enjoying another so much”

Like its namesake, Piers Gaveston encourages and indulges in what The Mail describes as “excess, high camp [and] ostentatious decadence” and prides itself on being a clandestine organization. Its members are given obscure titles such as “Poker”, “Despenser” (Hugh le, Earl of Winchester, a favorite of King Edward II), and “Catamite” (a boy who has a sexual relationship with a man), who all observe the Sicilian code of Omertà, maintaining silence about the club.

Every year, Piers Gaveston holds a summer ball, described by the Telegraph as parties where “Cross-dressing is as likely to feature as speed-laced jelly. The rules are simple – there are none.” Each member invites 20 guests – preferably more women than men. The invitees are given 72 hours’ notice and told to turn up for a hired coach that would drive them to an undisclosed destination in the countryside.

July 1, 2017, that “posh” (upper-class) half-naked students were seen queuing up to board the bus to this year’s £90-per-head ball Piers Gaveston summer ball held in a remote field — the females wearing only nipple tassels and body paint, the men in high heels.

Reportedly, “revellers” at the ball fornicated a goat. A poster on student gossip page Oxfeu wrote:

“Shoutout to those at Piers Gav who decided to f*** a goat — great to know Oxford remains a bastion of intellect.”

On Oxford missed connections page Oxlove, a poster wrote:

“To the guy I slept with in the orgy tent at the PG, let’s get a drink?”

Another student wrote:

“Oriel blonde in the pink skirt: why did you reject me at gav? You are the reason I went and yet you refused to join me in the sex tent.”

Another posted:

“To the guy wearing baubles at the Gav, it’s not christmas but you’re a gift I’d like to have. About your bod no one could ever lament. So next year meet me in the orgy tent?”

Piers Gaveston past members include movie actor Hugh Grant and former UK Prime Minister David Cameron who took part in an initiation ceremony in which Cameron screwed a dead pig’s mouth, according to an unofficial biography of Cameron written by Conservative donor Lord Ashcroft who claims to have photographic evidence.

Deaf & blind 20 y.o. cat lost for 3 months is reunited with owner

Cathy Free reports for PeoplePets, June 12, 2017, that two years ago, Raymond McNamara, 50, rescued an old, deaf and blind Siamese cat from the streets in Washington state. He named the cat Lily and traveled coast-to-coast with her, never worrying about the cat running off at hotels or rest stops because she’s blind and “always sticks close.

Early last February during a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the now 20-year-old Lily wandered off and go lost. As McNamara recounts what happened to People: “we were at a sand dune, I walked 10 feet away and turned my back for a brief moment. And when I turned around, she was gone.”

McNamara frantically searched through the surrounding brush for more than four hours, then had fliers made up about Lily, listing his contact information. For three weeks, he painstakingly searched eight square blocks, knocking on doors, hoping that somebody had seen her. He said: “I was so upset, I just stopped eating and I lost a bunch of weight, and it got to the point where I was exhausted and running out of money. Finally, I figured, ‘She’s gone — sad as it is, I need to accept it and move on.’”

McNamara then drove to California to look for work as a bartender or waiter.

Three months passed. In mid-May, McNamara received an urgent message from his mother: Animal rescue volunteers were trying to reach him because Lily had been found at a Fort Lauderdale construction site, near the beach where she’d gone missing. Dehydrated and malnourished, she was covered with cuts and scrapes, but alive. 

McNamara said: “I climbed in my car as soon as I could and started driving back to Florida, with tears of joy all the way. What a glorious occasion. Really, it’s a miracle.”

The emotional reunion between the unemployed service industry worker and his cat was videotaped at a veterinarian’s office and posted on YouTube. Kathy Bieniek, vice-president of Saving Sage Animal Rescue in Miami, a foundation that had helped search for Lily, said McNamara “and that cat have such a strong bond — he’s never going to let her out of his sight again. It was a very happy day.”

In April, a volunteer at Raymond McNamara spotted a skinny and weak cat with matted fur and scraped paws, hiding beneath a trailer at a construction site near where Lily had gone missing. The good-hearted volunteer posted a picture of the cat on Facebook and several people in Fort Lauderdale who remembered McNamara contacted Bieniek at Saving Sage Animal Rescue.

Bieniek took Lily to Pet Express Animal Hospital for several weeks of recovery and eventually tracked down McNamara’s mother with the good news.

Bieniek said: “It’s so incredible that Lily was able to survive for two months on her own in the heat and torrential rain we’d been having. She was in bad shape with liver and kidney issues and we had to put her on IV fluids. But with a lot of loving care, she made it.”

On May 19, 2017, McNamara fought back tears when he was reunited with Lily, who gave her person a head bump. Vowing that “She’s never going to get away from me again,” McNamara gently patted Lily’s frail body and marveled at her determination to live. “She is my world. There was no greater moment for me than being able to hold her again.”

Watch their tearful reunion:

Unlike large outfits like Humane Society of the United States, small animal rescue foundations like Miami’s Saving Sage Animal Rescue Foundation really need our support. Saving Sage is certified by Adopt-a-pet.com as an “approved rescue”. To donate to this worthwhile cause, click here!
