Don’t let the Animal Humane Society turn you into an animal hoarder! »
[Can’t see the video? Watch it on Vegansaurus.com]
Both Sarah and Megan submitted posts for this insanely sweet new PSA so I thought I’d post both because it’s Friiiiday and I’m feeling CRAZY! It’s a post-off!! post. off. POST. OFF. POST! OFF!!!
I wonder how many Vegansaurus readers have cats? Like is it a normal distribution similar to that of general society or is it like EVERYONE because we are vegans?
CUTE OVERLOAD, Y’ALL. The new Animal Humane Society PSA, “I Want…,” is promoting kitty-cat adoption with adorable talking cats! Watch this 1 million times, and then go adopt every cat everywhere ever.*
*Just kidding—then there’d be no kitties left for me! I need all of the kitties because I am a kitty hoarder.**
**Kidding again! I swear!
Okay, both posts are equally awesome! POST-OFF TIE DECLARED! Kittens for everyone!
Search for the WORST vegan product: make your voice heard! »
We’ve taken great strides forward in recent years. Daiya vegan cheese and Gardein meat products have surpassed, by a long shot, much that came before them. But with all of these recent advances in vegan food science, it’s easy to forget the poor substitutions that came before, and how bad we used to have it. That would be fine and dandy if those products would just disappear. Unfortunately, many of them persist on grocery shelves, stubbornly refusing to update their recipes to stay competitive.
What’s your vote for the single worst vegan product currently on the market? What’s the one that needs a huge “steer clear” label pasted on it for those who have just become vegan? What’s the one that makes you groan when your mom “helpfully” purchases it for you? Seriously, this is a public service. By clearing the shelves of all the crap products, we’re making sure that folks spend their hard-earned money on vegan food that actually tastes great. More great-tasting vegan food = an easier transition to veganism = hopefully more vegans. Right? I mean, that and we’re gonna have to stop being such assholes to non-vegans. I’m sure the reason they’re not vegan yet is because of some goofy tongue-in-cheek snark on a vegan blog. That makes the most sense.
We’ll tally the results and do a follow-up post next week.
My vote: Tofutti Soy-Cheese Slices. What’s yours?
I don’t even know what to do with this but now I have the freaking Golden Girls theme song in my head. AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I GET A THEME SONG STUCK IN MY HEAD. And if you don’t know, now you know. Finally, yes that’s my gorgeous voice and I am available for birthdays and weddings CALL ME!
Also, I am still processing that whole poster. I mean, on one hand, Dang! Disrespectful! On the other hand, Dang! Bea Arthur was HELLZA crazy and might have been into it! I mean, she was “get super-drunk and try to break into a neighbor’s house just so she could eat some watermelon from their fridge and sleep in the cat bed” CARAZAY. Man, I hope I grow up to be just like her.
I guess what it comes down to is, I’m always game to see that beautiful mug. Also, BUY ME THIS:
Portia de Rossi breaks out the bedhead for stray cats! »
Yes, the ever-lovely Portia de Rossi has kicked off Alley Cat Allies’ new series of PSAs. Call me a star-fucker if you need to but I do not care, I love Portia! I liked her as soon as I saw her with her glorious hair on Ally McBeal, but then when I found out she was a lesbian, well, then I LOVED her! But since she went vegan? HOLY CRAP I need a new word for how much I love her. She and Ellen light up my life.
Twilight studpuppy and new Calvin Klein underwear model Kellen Lutz teamed up with PETA for a new campaign to get you to save/adopt dogs from the many homeless pet shelters across the country. And being that it is PETA, he talks about seal clubbing and fur wearing as well. And check out these cute pics of Kellen and Kola at Celebuzz!

Hey San Francisco pet owners! Keep your cats and dogs inside/on-leash or coyotes will eat them! »
Your daily pissed-off PSA: San Francisco is full of urban wildlife, and that means coyotes. If you have a cat or a dog, then do everyone a favor and KEEP THEM INDOORS or on-leash. Cats and dogs who roam free are at risk of meeting and getting killed by coyotes. This isn’t just bad for your pets, but bad for the coyotes, too, who get killed when efforts to coexist with them fail. As reported yesterday in the San Francisco Chronicle (and SF Appeal):
A coyote killed a cat early this morning in an unexpected spot, San Francisco’s Russian Hill neighborhood, said the pet’s grieving owner.
Melissa Dunn said her husband let out the couple’s 2-year-old black cat, Ulubulu, at about 5:30 a.m. An hour and a half later, the male cat was found dead in bushes about 15 feet from the front door.
Dunn said she was sure a coyote had killed her cat because her husband and the couple’s gardener spotted the canine.
San Francisco is native territory for coyotes, but when they tangle with us and our furry familiars, residents demand that they get “dealt with.” If stubborn coyotes refuse to leave their territory, the next step is to dispatch people with guns. So for the sake of the coyotes, keep your pets away from wildlife! It’s seriously not that hard.
And if you haven’t already seen it, now is a good time to watch San Francisco: Still Wild at Heart, a 30-minute documentary about urban coyotes and other wildlife in our city.

Hello all! This is a little PSA I made because I love pigeons and everyone is so mean to them! They are a thriving immigrant community! And I’m like, jeez, sorry deforestation hasn’t killed them off. Good work with the other animals though. I love squirrels too but what makes them so much better than pigeons? Everybody is all nice to squirrels—why not pigeons? EVERY TIME I bring up pigeons, people are immediately like, “Ew! They’re dirty!” Hmm, why would pigeons be dirty? MAYBE BECAUSE YOU PEOPLE ARE DIRTY! If pigeons are dirty, it’s because their environment is dirty, and that’s all on us.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the video! And be nice to pigeons.
