Purrs 4 Peace: Week 5 Announcement

“How we behave toward cats here below determines our status in heaven." ~ Robert A. Heinlein

If only all humans recognized the truth in that quote. How can anyone call expect good things to come to him/her in this life or the next if they are cruel to an animal...the most innocent of beings.

Last week our purrs were directed at ending animal cruelty and we had more purrticipants than ever before. The feeling of love and peace coming from the simultaneous purrs was powerful and reverberated throughout the cyberspace of blog, facebook, and twitter as well as in the real world at large.

I am happy to report that just a few days ago Facebook finally deleted two groups devoted to cruelty to, and killing of, cats. Many thanks for this achievement go to Tippy Kat who spearheaded a group who worked on FB daily to achieve this result. One can only wonder at why it took FB so long. Nevertheless, there are still two more groups that Tippy and the members of his group are protesting. Just as disturbing or more so are the stories of cruelty and neglect of cats, dogs, and other animals that we all hear about daily. 

Again, I say: Who can this planet be at peace unless the furriest of us have peace.  Violence against animals at the root from which will spring peace for the whole planet.

Therefore, our work is not done.

Week 5 of Purrs 4 Peace is directed again toward eradicating cruelty to animals. Purring it forward. Taking one little area of our world and making it a cruelty free zone, then spreading that outward until that zone encompasses the entire world. 

  • Week five’s appointed time is Sunday, July 12, 2009.
  • Participants should purr for three minutes commencing at 6:00 p.m. EDT (U.S.) which is 11:00 p.m. (23:00 hrs.) BST in the U.K.
  • The cat’s human staff should assist their cats with the project by stroking and nuzzling the cat at the appointed time. 
  • Please post your cat name and the country you purr in at  as a COMMENT if you are participating in this historic project. (posting a link to your own website-if you have one-is encouraged.)
  • Last week many (including yours truly) posted their purrs during the event on their facebook pages and on twitter. This is encouraged, since it inspires purring in others, but not required.  On twitter please use #purrs4peace in your tweets.
