Weekly Project - Creating Ripples on the Web: #CatPunching

Post by Kristina »

This is an invitation to all to expose, shake up, and share awareness and common sense around a specific topic selected each week. This weeks topic is 'cat punching'.

If you don't know or haven't heard about this particular topic, can read the following articles here:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/technology ... ck-5144021
http://northdenvernews.com/cat-punching-page-facebook/
http://www.yousignanimals.org/Prosecute ... ook-t-2533

Share as a response to this post any news articles, relevant perspectives, insights or considerations, as well as your links to vlogs, blogs, Instagram photos, twitter, podcast... whatever social media medium you are using to bring awareness to this point.

Hash-tags we are using specifically for this topic is #catpunching #realmensnugglecats #teamLIFE and of course, any others you may wish to include.

So let's join our forces and create a force in the web as a group no longer accepting and allowing abuse - casting out the net of self-responsibility, self-awareness, and the example of what it takes to stand equal in consideration of the value of All Life.

Any questions, ask here!

Day 426 - Cat punching

I can see that the intent of any persons to create this Facebook page/event, and depict pictures/videos of cats suffering cruelty at the hands of humans, is but a means to SHOCK. To seek attention. And obviously they've gotten that now. Negative attention for the most part, but attention nonetheless. A cat can't fend for itself against a full grown human. Or, a human at all. It's a cowardice act to inflict violence on any life. There are many similar stories of animal cruelty, and unfortunately, only some get uncovered/heard of amongst society.

This is where I see that mainstream media has to REPORT these acts. I can't say that I've personally ever been watching news on the tv, and seen reports of animal cruelty reported. The focus in mainstream media appears to be based around humans. Tragedies involving humans. Or acts of kindness shown by humans. So within this, I already see that humans are considered by the average person to be the ultimate life-form. And animals? Well, they are seemingly just put aside. Why is that? Because they don't speak? Or, at least not in a language that humans can understand. Hey, I'm sure if we could understand animals, we would be in a HELL of a lot better position than we currently are, listening to our fellow humans/following them, and fucking up our world/our position in the world - that's what we get for following the powers in society blindly.

So, this is one method I see of at least raising more awareness of these acts amongst society. Making it a common news topic throughout ALL mainstream news. It's necessary for these big companies to have a starting point of considering all life. Not only humans. We already hear about murders/robbings/rapes inflicted upon humans, Us humans need to be a voice for animals, for the life that we can't directly talk to/understand.

Very cool points all so far!

lol, Anna - great photo!

As some noticed themselves, I also initially saw that point of how 20,000 people were able to sign the petition to remove the page, yet where are those 20,000 people when it comes to the abuse happening daily? Is it enough to simply request a page being removed? Where is the daily self-responsibility, as Anthony mentioned... these types of things we do not see in the mainstream news, or if we do, it is a featured story that is not long lived. It's as if our attention span is as long as our facebook stream, and as soon as it's removed, it's out of our awareness or radar.

What are some other dimensions to this that we can share, or that others can see as important to notice/consider from this?
