Purrs for Peace

Confucious Cat (@confuciuscat on twitter) has been organizing Purrs for Peace for 35 weeks straight and it's going strong. Each week focuses on a particular cause to meditate on to alleviate world suffering. Please join us!

 May all that have life be delivered from suffering.  Buddha


 This week's issue is the Canadian seal hunts, which begin on February 8th. 

This hits home with my mom because when she was 13 she saw an article in Life Magazine with color photos of the clubbing of baby harp seals for their fur with their mothers looking on, licking the skinned, dying pups. She pasted the photos onto a petition and circulated it around her neighborhood and her school. She was sent home from school because that wasn't permitted on school grounds but she did get hundreds of signatures and sent them to the President. That was the beginning of her animal rights activism.

There is lots of information about the Canadian Seal Hunt and Purrs for Peace at Confucius Cat's Blog.

Week 35 of Purrs 4 Peace details are as follows (reprinted from Confucius Cat's Blog):
  • Week thirty-five’s appointed time is Sunday, February 7, 2010.
  • Participants should purr for three minutes commencing at 3 p.m. EST (U.S.) which is 8:00 p.m. (20:00 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.) Or let me know by message on twitter or facebook.
  • Posting purrs on facebook ( Acolytes of Confucius Cat or as friend to Alley Mason) and twitter (@ConfuciusCat) is encouraged, since it inspires purring in others, but not required. On twitter please use #purrs4peace in your tweets.
