There is no unity with those who continue to subvert democracy and the rule of law.

This is for everyone who lives in states with Republican senators. Please flood them with letters demanding that they vote to convict Donald Trump. Feel free to use the one below. Trump must face the consequences of his high crimes and treason through every legal means available!

Dear Senator _________:

Your country needs you.

The American people need you to uphold your oath to protect the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the U.S. He must be prosecuted fully for the abuses of power and high crimes we all…


Nothing short of real consequences will stop them.

After just one season? Really?

(Warning: Spoilers contained within.)

It’s been a dark year. It was made a bit darker a few weeks ago (or more — time is difficult to gauge these days) when I heard that season two of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance was no longer coming (unless another streaming service picks up this gem that Netflix has dropped). Although I knew it wouldn’t have come sooner than next year, it was one of the things I was most looking forward to.

This disappointment is akin to enjoying the wonderful aroma of a pumpkin pie baking in the oven, only to…

Are allergies keeping you from giving your heart to adorable kitties? You’re not alone. People are twice as likely to be allergic to cats than to dogs.

But there’s good mews! Dr. Shelly Zacharias, DVM, MS, VPM, BCMAS, Vice President of Medical Affairs for Gallant, a biotech company that banks stem cells and develops regenerative therapies using a pet’s natural biology to treat future diseases, says that although there is no such thing as a 100% hypoallergenic cat, there are several breeds known to produce fewer allergens than others. Also, allergens don’t actually come from cat fur.

Okay, not just those things; I very much enjoy all three. The sun feels glorious. Soft sand feels wonderful on my bare feet. I can’t resist walking into the gentle waves. It all contributes to a sublime experience.

But what I absolutely love the most about the sea is what it teaches us. Next time you’re at a beach (either ocean- or lakeside), take a small cup and fill it with water. Imagine that the water in the cup contains your worries, stresses, mistakes, and transgressions. Then toss that tiny bit of water into the incomparably larger body of water…


History

Cats are the only creatures who can deliver purrfect purrformances!

These fantastic felines outshine costars of a variety of other species and have definitely earned their places among the best cinema cats!

Goose is an extraterrestrial creature called a Flerken that looks like an Earth cat but has pocket dimensions inside his mouth that make him very dangerous to his enemies. He plays an impurrtant role in Captain Marvel (2019). Purrhaps the tabby-cat “M” marking on his forehead stands for Marvel! …


Crises always show us who our true friends are.

On top of everything 2020 has wrought, I, like many others, have had to end some friendships.

But that's a good thing. Difficult times always reveal who your true friends are, and who has merely been seeking attention — who's only interested in what they can get from you and doesn't give anything in return.

This year has made it more clear than ever before that some people don't want friends — they want fans. They want people to follow them around (or on social media) and hang on their every word. To compliment them and laugh at all their…


Our feline friends have served, too!

On this Veterans Day, let’s honor not only humans who have served in the armed forces but also courageous cat veterans!

Military cats have usually been ship’s cats who perform the critical function of killing rodents and other destructive pests, as well as boosting morale.
