I Want to Live Inside Some of These Amazing Feral Cat Shelters

I have two barn cats currently residing deep within several old straw bales. They appear happy – but after seeing these creations, it’s a good thing they don’t have Internet.

The second-annual Architects for Animals project (otherwise known as “Awesome Cats Shelters You Can’t Buy/Afford) was held last week in New York City to benefit the NYC Feral Cat Initiative. The event was formed last year as a way to draw attention to the tens of thousands of feral and homeless cats throughout the city – as well as raise money for the organizations helping to keep them warm during the winter.

“The architectural community has been wonderful,” said Leslie Farrell, who created the event. “For the second straight year, the participating design firms are enthusiastically embracing this important cause and supporting the efforts of the New York City Feral Cat Initiative.”

All of the designs are eventually donated to local colony caretakers under the leadership of the Feral Cat Initiative. You can see some of the awesome creations from last year in the video below. For a gallery of this year’s winners (as well as information on how to donate/participate), jump here.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
