It's come to my attention via Tumblr that theres a petition online to create a new law in the UK to make animal crushing videos illegal.
I think its a disgusting thing for anyone to do, or watch and enjoy, and would really appreciate it if anyone on DA would follow this link and sign the petition. You do not have to be from the UK to sign. Its for anyone who believes that this treatment of animals for pleasure is wrong!

This is a quote direct from the website::::::::There was also a link to still images from the video, but they are *very* disturbing, so I've removed the link~

    Please continue to SIGN AND SHARE this petition far and wide:…

    There are NO upsetting images at the petition source!

    Don't forget to to click the share on Facebook and Twitter links when you have signed.

    ***UPDATE*** Message from the Stop Crush team (

    "We would greatly appreciate it if certain individuals in the United Kingdom would refrain from telling people that laws are already in place against animal crush video. There is no specific law against animal crush video, let alone one that places the depictions in severe crime category, where they belong. United Kingdom laws governing basic obscenity are not sufficient enough against animal crush video. These videos should be categorized in the same bracket as child pornography. In 2002 the U.K. recorded its first crush video case. A man and 3 women from the Stoke-on-Trent area pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges and conspiracy to publish obscene material. Craig Chapman, 27, Christine Besford, 25, Sarah Cooke, 21, and Theraza Smallwood, 22, pleaded guilty to crushing a kitten, a guinea pig and a several mice. They essentially got a slap on the wrist under the basic obscenity law. It was a relatively small fine and under a year in prison. In contrast, under the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act of 2010, these 4 perpetrators would have received up to 7 years each in prison and a very hefty fine."

Hello thar!

I was wondering if any of you lovely cat people may be interested in some black cat buttons?… :meow:

I made some (for friday the thirteenth XP - I love that day, lol) and I wanted to get an idea of how many people would actually be interested in getting some before I made a big order . . .
There's other pics on that journal too, and I may revise a handful of the badges shown.

(I refer to these things as badges/pins/buttons as people call them different things, but it's all the same :XD:)

Hi there,

Could my membership status please be changed from Contributor to simply a member? I really don't feel I deserve to be in that category as I don't do or contribute much around here at all.

Thanks heaps,

i wanted to submit a journal entry. its not specifically about cats, but about animals in general. There is a petition going around to make animal crushing videos illegal in the UK. I wondered it if would be ok to submit here because obviously you guys are animal lovers, and i'm sure many of you would want to sign this petition~~~
