"What about when you get old?"
Tattooed Seniors answer the question.
I can’t stress enough how important it is that you surround yourself with supportive people who make you feel important and special, and who enhance your life with their presence. If their presence is making you feel worse instead of better, re-evaluate why you’re letting them stay.
If you were having a bad day, here are some kittens in a bathtub.
never have I ever seen kittens calmly swimming in water
THE WARRIORS FANDOM HAS ARRIVEDTHIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER SEEN THE WARRIORS FANDOM HIJACK A POST AND LET ME TELL YOU I AM V E R Y PROUD OF THEM
those are kittypets
I’ve been away from my computer so unable to post - so I guess this is a little cheaty.
3. Explain what your dream interaction would be.
That would have to be watching wild orca pods anywhere in the wild. Ideally from a sea kayak - something majorly non-intrusive.
4. How did you first start…
Now pretend you’re one of the whales.
I posted something similar as a reblog, but feel this deserves another post. It’s one thing to be told the statistic about “orca swimming x miles in a day”, or hear about them living in a “bathtub.” It’s another thing entirely to see a real comparison.
K25 (Scoter) literally swam the red line’s noted distance with his pod, in a day. ((Here’s a cool video (from this page) of where Scoter swam in the Salish Sea between the end of December 2013 and the end of January 2014!))
How many other animals regularly have this kind of range? How many of them do we keep in captivity?
Given the above images… how is keeping orca captive and having them jump around in a relative thimble of water— for our amusement, no less —anything but abuse?
To those who rattle their sabers at Blackfish, and those who unfortunately seem to buy the blatant lies Seaworld’s peddling…
If you actually care about these animals, isn’t this the kind of information that matters? That and as much conservation and awareness information you can get your hands on?
I feel very sad for the stunted, lost creatures that are the captive-born orcas.
