Ok, not literally, but this is seriously cool. Observers have suspected wild cats of mimicking other animals, but until now it had never been documented. "Cats are known for their physical agility, but this vocal manipulation of prey species indicates a psychological cunning which merits further study," said WCS researcher Fabio Rohe." A cat making monkey calls? That seems like a cunning cat to me!
Obama Responds to a Vegan Outreach
(discovered through Vegan Outreach)
"Americas would actually benefit from change in diet." Check out Obama, too bad we can't be too progressive. But I can appreciate that he cares, even if it's not enough.

An Act of Terrorism?
Evidently not! The case against 4 animal rights activists who were arrested in Santa Cruz in 2009 has been dismissed! Get more details here and here.
(I'm a sucker for a new species, so from now on when I spot one you're sure to hear about it!)

A Squat Cafe?
Perhaps, like me, you thought that squatting was reserved for homeless or bohemian types that take up temporary residency in an abandoned building. Well, at the Vegan Backpacker they put this myth in it's place.
I can really appreciate this thought on Vegan Outreach. I won't lie, I've been a little frustrated by the question of honey popping up on various blogs lately. But I truly do not mean my frustrations to be an insult to anyone. It's good that people question things and put thoughtful efforts into making their own decisions about how to live their lives. But Vegan Outreach reminded me of something important. As vegans, we are all striving to make a difference. And while I do think it's important for us to support one another and discuss our questions and concerns, perhaps I shouldn't feel so much frustration. After all, we have bigger problems to contend with ;)
The Give-away is still coming! I will be out of town part of the week for my friend Tiff's wedding :) So I may not be able to start the reviews until next week. Sorry to put you all in suspense, but I promise the day will come!
So, here's some good news: The awesome vegan cartoonist Dan Piraro is allowing me to post some of his comics for my news entries :) He's very talented and of course I'm very flattered to share these right here with you guys. (I will work on making these more viewer friendly, for now click for an enlarged image.)
