ITEM ID #: 001
ITEM: pink & black paracord collar

Paracord collars and leashes for sale now. This one is premade and fits a standard size, full grown, miniature schnauzer. It is 13 and 1/3 inches long and comes with a standard dog collar clasp and an ID tag ring, which is where you can also hook the leash. This material is very strong so even a dog pulling on the leash will have a very difficult time breaking it. Of course over time everything weakens but these collars last just as long as those you’d buy at Petsmart and other pet stores.

You can also custom order your own. You can either have it in a solid color or two colors. Collars always come with an ID tag ring but you can ask me to remove it if you’d like. The standard clip (as seen in the picture) is highly recommended but I have other clasps I can use instead. However, depending on the clasp you choose, I won’t promise the same strength I do with the standard clip being used, simply because some of the other clasps are smaller and therefore not as strong.

Price: $7.00 + shipping | see /tagged/policies

For a custom order go to the submission page and read the information included. Otherwise, if interested in the item shown above use the submission box and include the following information and anything between parenthesis edit the information appropriately. Leave anything else as it is.

ITEM ID #: 001
ITEM: pink & black paracord collar
LOCATION: (your full mailing address to be shipped to)
NAME: (name used for your mailing address)

Go to www.desertcats.org and click on the PayPal link. Make sure you select “payment” when paying - not donation. Once you have paid submit the information in the ask box and I will check to make sure your payment has gone through. I will then send the item the following business day. Please allow 7-14 days for delivery depending on your location. If you live outside of the continental US please ask me in the ask box first if I ship to your location. I ship almost anywhere but I’d rather you ask ahead of time before paying.

Thank you!

Congratulations, Little Bear, from Spokane Washington! He was recently adopted and is now happily living in a home where he belongs. Look at that adorable under bite! It’s no wonder someone wanted to snatch this pooch up! Little Bear was adopted from the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service in Spokane Valley Washington. He’s said to be a boxer mix which is entirely possible but he appears to be a Staffordshire Terrier mix so possibly a Boxer x Staffordshire Terrier.

MERLIN -   Meet Merlin! He’s a really handsome adult blue and gold macaw. Unfortunately he was taken from the wild because it was legal then. He’s 24 years old now and it only took four days for him to accept humans, so he really is a very social bird. He’s intelligent and kind and loves to have paper at the bottom of his cage to create a nest, as he would be doing in the wild. Like most birds he isn’t great with every human. They’re picky and known to be one people pets, so you will have to meet Merlin first to see if you’ll be one of the accepted ones.Located in: Tempe ARIZONAShelter: Arizona Exotic Bird Rescue Inc.Address: 1290 N Scottsdale Rd.

MORRIS -   This African Gray is a 39 year old male who is looking for a loving and forever home to settle into and stay with! He eats what these birds normally would so no specific diet is needed. Birds aren’t considered a beginner’s pet and especially a highly intelligent parrot. If this will be your first I highly suggest doing a lot of reading first. He was cared for by an elderly woman who could no longer care for him to the best of her ability so he is a good bird and was not abandoned due to his personality or any habits.Located in: San Diego CALIFORNIAShelter: Parrot Education & Adoption CenterAddress: P.O.Box 600423 San Diego, CA 92160Contact: 619-287-8200ID #: N/AHours: Contact for infoClick here for a link for full information

Do you understand the circle of life?

I posted on my rescue’s FB page about adopting cats to become mousers for anyone who has mice problems. Although someone liked it someone else said “this is pretty sad.” My response?

"There’s a thing called the circle of life and anyone who is against it doesn’t understand the way the world works. I own rats who I play with at least once a day, as they’re extremely social and intelligent animals that make excellent pets. However, I am 100% against feeding a pet snake a frozen/prekilled rat. That’s extremely sad. Not pretty sad, but extremely. A snake can never be a completely domesticated animal so to already force it to live in a cage as a pet, a human should at least give it the simple pleasure in life to eat the way it is supposed to - making it more active and healthy too. To take away a snake’s natural way of hunting and eating, you are stripping that animal of every single thing it has and that is extremely sick and wrong. It’s the same with cats and mice. Wild mice cause A LOT of problems. Every single year they cause thousands in damage from electrical to plumbing and more. They destroy gardens that feed people, that provide income. They chew holes in houses and ruin the home and so so so so much more. The solution? Cats. Why? Because they are natural born hunters and all animals understand the circle of life. Unfortunately too many people have lost understanding of the circle of life and that’s why humans are so far in the gutter and will never be able to get out and completely dusts themselves off. "

Humans have lost their understanding of the world, of animals, of nature, of mother earth herself and so much more. Humans have destroyed the world. We are disgusting. We are a parasite. We ruin everything we touch in some shape of form. maybe you may not particularly but some human does. It’s the sad, sad truth and it breaks my heart that too many people don’t care, making it completely impossible to ever fix what we have so selfishly destroyed.
