Have You Heard: I’m Tired of Animal Cruelty

This is another thing I came across on Twitter. It’s a site called I’m Tired Of …  that sells a bunch of different bracelets (made from recycled tires) and t-shirts that help promote various causes. They donate some of the proceeds to charities. In addition rallying against diseases (like breast cancer, diabetes, etc.) and cultural issues such as discrimination, they have some that say I’m Tired of Animal Cruelty. The “cause,” I believe, has more to do with things like puppy mills, but I personally choose to believe it could also stand for harsh dog training methods.

I just thought it was a neat idea and wanted to share. It might make a nice holiday gift for the animal lovers in your life.

I’ll try not to get all Norma Rae on you, but … you know … united we stand, and all that jazz.

Oh, I love this stuff. Thanks for sharing. I am the animal lover in my life. 🙂
Meaning, I will buy this for myself!

RE: my kitty’s size… I think it’s just a weird optical illusion. Now that you’ve mentioned it, I can see it, too! Layla’s about 8 pounds, so she’s smaller than the average cat by a little bit. Marge’s head also looks strangely huge in that last picture of them snoozing. She’s about 40 pounds.

I tried digging through my Photobucket to find a better comparison. This probably doesn’t help much, because now the cat looks huge, but it’s cute (Marge is so confused that something so alive and fuzzy is in her little toy crate) so I’ll share anyway.

I feel like I’ve heard of this before, but I can’t remember where. Cool stuff.

I like it. Thanks for highlighting the t-shirts and bracelets.
