☆What is the meaning of meat diet.
I think it's necessary, especially for people who eat meat, to know how life is taken, and how cruel it is,.
Please judge for yourself whether to watch this film or not.
This is reprinting from Keiji Kidokoro’s Facebook.
Keiji Kidokoro (from Brian Ruth)Brian Ruth, who is my friend, and also teacher, shared this.He is now vegetarian.
Have you ever thought about the life of the pig that you eating now?
If you understand the meaning of this picture, you understand the animal’s feeling 100%.
★TNR activity in Kawasaki.
My hometown Kawasaki, there are some cats on their way to our shelter.
I was thinking of doing sterilization for them, but time goes fast.
This year will finished soon.
I set some capture cages around the shelter with volunteers, but they haven't succeeded yet. It's easier at the feeding area.
Continue till the end of the year.
Oil heater for Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.
Accepted 2 cats that need urgent medical measures.
We donated an oil heater to Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.
The oil heater was donated to our shelter by a foster family. She was also volunteering last year. It was very kind, but in the shelter, some cats will pee on it, and also we try to conserve the space.
So we decided to donate it to Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.
They don’t have independent room, and put the cages on narrow floor or in hallways.
For the winter, they bought a stove from their small budget.
Outside, they hang out so many blankets, laundry used by dogs.
I hope this heater warms the animals and staff.
This year, zero dogs and cats were euthanized in Kawasaki Animal Welfare Center.
The chief manager and the staff made great efforts towards that goal.
However the situation is still difficult.
Over a hundred cats die because of serious injury or sickness.
Some were euthanized, but only after attempts to save them.
They had to euthanize, but not kill unnecessarily .So their concern now is how to save the wounded cats.
It is vital to have enough medical facilities, and to cooperate with other associations or animal hospitals. Since I started to go to Fukushima often, I could visit Kawasaki Animal Welfare center only a few times a month.
When I visit, I try to take on the urgently wounded cats, but I can’t do this every day.
Kawasaki city doesn’t say that they can’t be handed over until the deadline, like other cities. If treatment is necessary immediately, they can quickly hand over the animals. This is a fundamental matter for animal welfare.
I need more time to save them.
I feel strongly about making "zero euthanized" a goal in Kawasaki city.
Then I received 2 wound cats from Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.
It looks like traffic accident injuries.
V cut on the ear is the sign of sterilization having been done.
Is there anyone looking for this cat?Bleeding from eyes and nose.
Maybe head injury.
Looks hard to breathe.Urgently, I brought it to TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.
Then x-ray, treatment, ICU..... epilepsy symptoms.....
The other kitten is around 2 months old.I don’t know what happened.
It lies there, and doesn’t move at all.
It looks hard to breathe.
This one was also brought to the hospital urgently.
The x-ray showed a dislocated atlas vertebra, and the axis at the neck, the nerves are cut off.
We don’t have medical instruments of that caliber of high technology.
I want to have it undergo surgery if the nerves can be connected.
I brought it to the advanced medical hospital in Yokohama.
But the result was that surgery wouldn't be possible.
There is barely a glimmer hope.
This one is not from the center, but I protected it.It seems blind.
It was thin, but fine.
But now lying motionless.
After the examination, there are some bone and nerve problems.
This is Daigoro in our shelter.
He had paralysis from a blood clot, but healed.
He was enjoying life, but then suddenly fell into a critical condition.
The veterinarian team in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital saved him, but he still can’t eat by himself.
This is Kune, from Kawasaki Animal Welfare center.She has AIDS and leukemia and was very thin. She is sweet, and was having a fun life.
But now she has jaundice, and doesn’t eat much.
She is in the hospital now.
There are so many cats that need treatment and care.
They come to the hospital one after another, but the hospital is always full.
I'm just can't keep up.
I wish Japan would become a more advanced country in regards to animal welfare.
For that, please do something, even if it is tiny thing.
