Here is a new comic about Phoenix, a stray cat from the Philippines. It’s a bit of a Debbie Downer compared to my usual autobiographical delusions-of-grandeur-illustrated-by-cheap-puns style but it’s something I had to do.

I was very affected by Phoenix’s situation and story, the latter of which went viral for the brief moment that is a lifespan on the interwebs. He was rescued by P.A.R.T., who in turn received donations from around the world.

As opinionated as I am, I can’t stand people who are preachy, so I try (for the most part) to keep my mouth shut when, say, I see idiotic posts from people whose beliefs contradict mine.

But I do believe that as human beings, we have the responsibility to be KIND. Animals kill to eat and survive—hey, nothing personal—and we do too. I’m a meat-eating, leather-wearing kind of gal and can’t speak for PETA but I will proudly proclaim that there’s absolutely no reason for any living being to hurt another for the sole purpose of enjoyment.

Animals don’t do it, why do we?

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
