As monkeypox cases grow in the US, pet owners are a bit concerned, if it can be passed onto their companions. Since COVID-19 can jump between species, can MonkeyPox do the same?
According to the CDC.. There’s a chance through regular contact, via petting, cuddling, sharing food and sleeping areas. Or giving them a kiss.
Dogs and cats can contract other orthopoxviruses, such as the vaccinia virus, which is used in the smallpox/monkeypox vaccines. Lets just leave it at, anything is in the realm of possibility.
According to American Veterinary Medical Association who says the chances you can give your pet monkeypox are “extremely low.”
“There is no evidence to date at all that dogs and cats are susceptible to contracting monkeypox or could even serve as a reservoir,” said Dr. Katherine Quesenberry, chief medical officer at the Schwarzman Animal Medical Center in New York. “That doesn’t mean that the risk is zero, but it just is very unlikely that it would happen.”
Women do not have basic constitutional rights. Unless you consider “voting rights” basic. The constitution DOES NOT cover healthcare either.
We would of had protection back in 1972, IF the Equal Rights Act was passed. However, it was defeated and largely because of a WOMAN named Phyllis Schlafly.
Phyllis Schlafly held paleoconservative social and political views, opposed liberal feminism, gay rights and abortion, and successfully campaigned against ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
How did Phyllis do this? Phyllis Schlafly was perhaps the most visible opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment. Her “Stop ERA” campaign hinged on the belief that the ERA would eliminate laws designed to protect women and led to the eventual defeat of the amendment.
When in reality the ERA would have given:
Men and women shall have equal rights throughout the United States and every place subject to its jurisdiction. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Meaning, Women will not be discriminated against. Nor will their body autonomy come into question. Meaning Roe V Wade would have been solidified.
Furthermore, what the SCOTUS has done was indeed a violation of the constitution. Yet not for the reasons people think. (Since many think it was a violation of women’s rights when that does not exist – constitutionally) it was a violation of CHURCH AND STATE. The first amendment. And they have violated the 14th amendment.
First Amendment- When the First Amendment was adopted in 1791, the establishment clause applied only to the federal government, prohibiting the federal government from any involvement in religion. By 1833, all states had disestablished religion from government, providing protections for religious liberty in state constitutions.
The first amendment to the US Constitution states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Meaning- Congress shall not use their religious beliefs to make a RULING Or DECISION. They took an oath to be unbiased during their “meetings”.
Which brings us to the 14th Amendment.
14, section 3 – All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Meaning men and women have a right to life. Meaning taking away abortions for legit medical reasons that may cause life threatening issues were infringed upon.
Ectopic pregnancy is not a viable pregnancy and is life threatening. The “egg” and “cells” can rupture the Fallopian tubes, causing mass hemorrhage ( internal bleeding). Ectopic pregnancy are not exemptions from the anti-abortion laws, when it should be!
Placental Abruptions happen and although SOME rare occasions it corrects itself. There are times when they don’t and again will cause internal bleeding and fetal death. If the dead “fetus” is not removed this will cause fatal infection and sepsis. This causes a woman’s DEATH. Again infringing upon the right to life.
14th amendment “oath”. The oaths taking before settling into office is for said Senator, President and SCOTUS to uphold the constitution fully without biases. This was infringed upon. They lied under oath.
Because religious views played a big role in their decisions. 🖕🏽This is why there is separation between church and freaking state.
Life does not begin at conception. Cells begin at conception. Implantation begins, life does not. Therefore these antiabortionists are basically saying CANCER CELLS have A RIGHT TO LIFE. They are saying mens sperm have a right to life. Even though all men jerk off into a sock and abort that seed.
Let me see you prolife jerks outlaw Masturbation. I also want to see you adopt children from the orphanage’s. You are not prolife you are probirth. Because once that kid is born, there is NO affordable healthcare, daycare or preschool.
I am prochoice. The freedom to choose. The freedom to practice your religion without shoving it down someone else’s throat. The freedom to protest, the freedom to form an opinion, to choose a job, to go to the college you want or to not go.

The Biden administration is throwing out the definition of “habitat” for endangered animals, returning to an understanding that existed before the government under President Donald J. Trump shrank the areas that could be protected for animals under threat of extinction.
By striking a single sentence from the regulations, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries could once again protect a “critical habitat” even if it had become unsuitable because of development or other changes but could be restored.
Over 350 dogs are getting a second chance after police and animal activists intercepted a truck carrying the canines to China’s Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
According to Humane Society International (HSI), several days before the 2022 Yulin Dog Meat Festival started on June 21, police and animal activists in Shaanxi, China, intercepted a truck filled with canines heading to Yulin.
KANSAS CITY, Kansas (CNN) — Sixteen rescued dogs are recovering at Kansas City, Kansas (KCK) Animal Services. Rescuers say the dogs were freed from horrific conditions after they were abandoned to live alone in the woods.
KCK Animal Services Director Ashley Scott said the dogs are adjusting remarkably well and will soon be available for adoption.
“All these guys were on heavy thick chains,” Scott said. “They do have wounds from those heavy chains and collars because they were on so tight.”
While executing a search warrant, investigators discovered the 16 dogs. KCK Animal Services brought the dogs to a shelter to be assessed and treated.
“We knew that we could not leave these guys behind. There is no way these animals were getting adequate shelter,” Scott said. “The dog houses were falling apart. They were standing in several inches of mud and water. They had no food and no water.”
Rescuers hiked and used ATVs to bring the dogs out of the woods safely.
“We had to hike the rest of the way by foot. It was too muddy for a military grade ATV to get to,” Scott said. “I would say it was about a quarter mile into the woods. We were able to take one dog at a time.”
Scott said once the dogs are spayed or neutered, they will be ready to find new homes.
“They were so happy to be out of that environment. They’ve given nothing but love to us so far,” Scott said. “They are all very sweet and very gentle even with other animals.”
Friends of KCK Animal Services are collecting donations for medical care for the rescued dogs.
“This is why I do what I do. We can take an animal living in those conditions with no love, and they are resilient and forgiving even when they shouldn’t be,” Scott said. “We can try to give them the best life that they should have always had.”
This post will be short. Quite frankly, I’m tired of treating companions for heat exhaustion and stroke.
Stop leaving your companions outside during hot days. Don’t leave them in the car either. Even for 5 minutes. Your car is like an oven.
Like young children they can’t regulate their body temperature. The heat will literally cook their brain. First signs of heating problems. Over excessive drooling. Panting more heavily. And then they sieze.
Moreover, if you don’t seek medical help they will die.
Police have given permission in most states for civilians to break animals out of your car. So don’t be surprised if you come to find a broken window and your animal at a Veterinarian Hospital.
You WILL NOT get your animal back either.
It’s your responsibility to keep them safe and healthy. If you can’t hold up to your responsibilities then you don’t deserve to have companion animals.
The reason is the hundreds of recalls in February and the lack of production of it now. Many parents are finding it difficult to come up with solutions.
During my time in Texas there was a period of formula shortages due to bulk buying during hurricane Harvey. (In the area I was in) and I wasn’t able to travel far.
And seeing as my kid is lactose intolerant it was double difficult to find a solution, since breastfeeding was out of the question, due to my medication (insulin and Lexapro).
I then called my mother and asked what she did during the shortage in the 80s.
Quite simply put. She used evaporated milk. Until I turned age one. Then she switched over to cows milk, where she would boil it down and skimmed off the top skin.
Again my kid is lactose intolerant. So that wasn’t an option. However, I am writing this for those who have kids who can drink regular milk products.
Use evaporated milk in a can as a substitute. Or breastfeed if you can. If your child is age one and up boil the regular milk, before giving it to your kids.
Lactose intolerant milk lactaid at age one. Before that it’s soy, almond, cashew, and coconut. That’s what my pediatrician suggested.
DO NOT MAKE YOUR OWN FORMULA. There’s risks, very dangerous risks. Unforeseen illness or allergies and even Deaths.
These options may not work for you, and I encourage parents to talk with their pediatrician about these options, BEFORE, trying them. Because each baby/child is different. Just know there are options out there.
(Note I do Not agree with using any dairy products as it’s theft from the calf. However, during dire circumstances, such as shortage, one must do what they have to.)
On Dec 27, 2021, in New Orleans a pipe bursts and spills 300,000 Gallons into two artificially made ponds. Killing Fish, Birds. and other wildlife. According to the State and Local Official, a majority of the fuel was recovered.
Yet that’s not the point is it? Animal Life was lost due to yet, another pipeline burst.
According to the pipeline owner. The spill from the 16-inch-diameter line operated by Collins Pipeline Co. was discovered on Dec. 27 near a levee in St. Bernard Parish, just east of New Orleans, according to documents from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
An inspection of the 42-year-old Meraux Pipeline more than a year earlier, in October 2020, revealed external corrosion along a 22-foot section of pipe in the same area as the spill. But repairs were delayed and the line continued operating after a subsequent inspection indicated the corrosion was not bad enough to require work immediately under federal regulations, according to the pipeline agency.
Let me remind the people of how serious Corrosion is when it comes to pipelines. Or how dangerous it is when ship hauls are weak.
The New Orleans spilled fuel also contaminated soil in an environmentally sensitive area near the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet, a closed canal, according to state and federal officials. A small amount of diesel remains in the two borrow pits, said Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality spokesman Gregory Langley.
Fuel Companies like BP and Collins do not care about the environment, they are killing everything slowly, and for what? GREED!
If Fuel Companies cannot stick to protocols and safety management, then what’s the point of even having a pipeline? Why not just spill it completely and kill everything right now instead of slowly. Get it over with, and by the time you want to collect that cash, you’ll have no customer base.
This is exactly one of the most important reasons why the majority of advocates are speaking up for NEW SOURCES of CLEAN FUEL. I understand switching from OIL to either Hydro, Corn, or Wind power is expensive. However, in the long run, it is worth it. You would be producing more jobs, truckers would be able to safely transport the water, corn oil, and or wind turbines. Companies would be able to make money from a cleaner fuel source. Everyone would win in this scenario.
Because you can’t get sick off of Corn Oil, Water/Hydro, or even Wind. The fact that companies say there is no money in cleaner fuel sources, is hyperbolic. The electric fuel source for cars – they’re making the figures to keep them around. To be fair the majority of people actually want a cleaner way of life, which is why many have switched to “Solar Power” and “Electric Cars”.
Besides that, these Oil Companies have Nearly Depleted these fossil fuels, there really isn’t much left. And this is also why gas prices have risen. Supply and Demand. It’s time to switch to a cleaner source of fuel.
This year should be the year where companies switch. It’s 2022 we should be more advanced by now. We should be on the cleaner path, we only have one planet, there is no escape when this planet dies off completely. Look at Mars for that example.
The DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office said the investigation into the puppy mill could lead to more charges for Romano and Polk.
Because of this, no further information can be released on the case, including information on specific dogs and the adoption process, the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office said.
The dogs are being cared for at DeSoto Animal Control but are in need of a few items.
If anyone would like to make donations, they can be sent to:
DeSoto County Animal Control
2048 NE McKay Street
Arcadia, FL 34266
UPDATE– The Etowah County Sheriff’s Office served a summons to Ricky Gladden Tuesday morning for two counts of animal cruelty after shooting a nearby neighbor’s dogs, killing one of them.
According to Kaley and Jerry Richards, their dogs, Maverick and Mosely, got out the morning of November 12th, after their underground fence was damaged by construction workers putting in a pool.
Kaley said the pair had never gotten out before–immediately causing concern.
