Purrs 4 Peace - Year Two - Announcement: Human and Animal Rights Declared

Until he extends the circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace. 
--Albert Schweitzer

In June of 2009, the Purrs 4 Peace project began with an idea…a flight of imagination…a dream of a headline:

Peace breaks out...attributed to simultaneous purring of cats worldwide.

Well why couldn’t it happen? We all have observed the instant calming effect inspired by the purring of cats. So began 52 weeks of simultaneous purring by cats and honorary cats worldwide for the sake of Peace.

To usher in the PEACE we purred about causes and barriers to PEACE.For eradication of puppy mills and catteries we purred. To stop War we purred. Ending the barbarity of dog fighting we purred. For the victims of natural and unnatural disaster we purred…….And while I believe we have done much good and sent a mighty force of positive energy into the universe, we have not yet achieved world peace. And since humans obviously cannot achieve PEACE on their own, I hereby announce YEAR TWO of the Purrs 4 Peace project.

Year 2 of the Purrs 4 Peace project will take place on the first Sunday of each month at 3 p.m. Eastern (in the United States) for 12 months.

In considering this second year it occurred to me that the root of much of the lack of PEACE in this world is a failure to recognize and respect each other Therefore, I make my Declaration of Fundamental Human and Animal Rights.

We (Mummy and I) hold these truths to be self-evident, that all humans and ANIMALS are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights….

FIRST among these is the right to LIFE……..

This month we purr RESPECT for the right of all animals and humans to merely LIVE! Let’s purr for life.

The appointed time is Sunday, August 1, 2010 at 3 p.m. Eastern (United States time) which is 8 p.m. in the U.K.

Participants should purr for three minutes.

The cat’s human staff should assist their cats with the project by stroking, nuzzling and generally catering to their cat.

Please post purrs if possible online on twitter (@ConfuciusCat), or on Facebook (as your status or on the wall of Ally Mason). You may also post purrs here or on the wall of the Facebook event page created by the Acolytes of Confucius Cat group. Please include the name of the cat and the country in which you purr.

Spread the meow to all your cat friends. One year of simultaneous purring. Surely if we give it our all we can achieve Peace in the world through the greatness of Cat.

Peace * Paix * Frieden * Vrede * Pace * Fred* Paz * Shalom * Salaam * Om Shanti * Heddwch * Síochán * 和平

Purrs 4 Peace Week 52: Thank You

I am proud to introduce you this week to a very enlightened friend and supporter of the Purrs 4 Peace Project: Jennifer Bolgar who resides in London, England. Mum and I thought Jennifer was our kind of human when we saw her religious views as listed on Facebook was “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster”. But we were CERTAIN Jennifer was a QUALITY human when we saw her dedication to animal and human rights issues by her postings. Now I would like to turn this over to Jennifer to let her tell you a bit about herself with only an occasional comment from me.

When Ally (AKA Confucius Cat) asked me for a few paragraphs about myself I thought gulp, what do I say? Well, seeing as this is Purrs4Peace I thought I'd start off by introducing you to our gorgeous cuddlepuss, Eric. (pictured above- What a cutie pie!). He is a total affection tart and purrs all the time, not just during Purrs4Peace! We first met Eric when we fostered him for the Cats Protection League ( He was rescued as a very young adult, living on the streets. He hadn't been chipped or neutered, and wasn't wearing a collar. Whilst fostering we fell head-over-heals in love with him so we ended up adopting him or, as I like to say, he adopted us! If you're considering fostering but are worried about getting too attached, like we did, if you end up adopting you are still giving a cat a loving forever home. I'd encourage anyone considering getting a cat or a kitten to go to your local shelter and adopt one, there are so many cats and kittens needing forever homes that there is no need to buy from a pet shop and risk supporting kitten mills. (Confucius Cat couldn’t agree more. *four paws applauding*)

As for me, I'm passionate about the struggle for peace, social justice, anti-discrimination and equal opportunities for all, both at home and abroad. We have one life and one Earth, and it is up to all of us to work together to improve it for all. (Now that is a motto we can all get behind. Yay Jennifer!)

At a neighbourhood level I help to run our local Freecycle group, which has nearly 11,000 members. The Freecycle Network™ ( is made up of 4,810 groups with well over seven million members world-wide. It's a grassroots and entirely non-profit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own locales. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers and membership is free. Not only are we keeping stuff out of landfill, we're also building local communities and helping each other, one gift at a time. Come and join us!”

Thank you Jennifer. Freecycle sounds absolutely fabulous. Mummy and I are all admiration. Eric is an extremely fortunate cat to have found such a wonderfully inspiring human.

Thank you to all the purrrticipants in the Purrs 4 Peace Project. It is impossible to determine all the participants each week. Therefore, I have endeavored to add new participants to this list. Please forgive me if I have failed to include you. Just let me know and I will add you immediately. I value each and everyone who has added their positive energy of purrs to this effort. Bravo!

Purrs 4 Peace Week 52: Stomp Out Crush Videos

In April of this year, the United States Supreme Court, in yet another display of adjudicating in support of greed rather than human and animal rights, ruled that a law banning crush videos was unconstitutional as impinging on free speech. Really? Free speech. These cruel, noxious, horrible, shocking, videos in which animals are crushed for the sexual gratification of viewers are at heart no different than videos of the work of serial killers.A Are videos of human murders next. That these videos of the suffering of such innocent tiny souls can be condoned and elevated to the “free speech” our founding fathers fought for, that so many Americans have died to protect, would be ridiculously laughable if it weren’t so sadly sickening.

There has been new legislation introduced in the House of Representatives and one which is shortly to be introduced in the Senate to institute a new ban on the sale of these videos in the U.S. I implore everyone to contact their representatives to urge the passage of this ban as soon as possible. The only way to crush these crush videos is to remove the market for them. Greed is at their engine and cruelty is their fuel.

Let us not be discouraged. Instead, we must be more determined to end this evil. So....... we purr.

“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.” ~Alice Walker

Pump up the purrs. Super powered purrs are needed this week. Purr for the kittens. Purr for the helpless. Purr for peace.

2:59 p.m.

Get ready to Purrrrrrrr.

Purrrrrr...Direct your purrs into the air, that every human breaths. Imagine them inhaling calm, love, peace and exhaling anxiety, anger, hate.

Purrrrrrrrrrr, purrrrrrrrrrrr, purrrrrr Imagine every kitten and puppy being held in loving arms; every cat and dog wanted and safe in a nurturing home, safe from cruelty and abuse.

Imagine understanding, empathy, compassion overwhelming every person who has or would participate in crush videos. Their hearts and minds are changed forever.

Purrrrrrrr.... Imagine the media report: Crush videos banned. Market for cruel fetish entertainment disappears.

Purrrr......Imagine compassion triumphs over cruelty, understanding over ambivalence, love over greed.

Purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......
