Kitten Appreciation Post! We adopted Charlie 2.5 weeks ago. We named him Charlie for his little black nose- makes him look like Charlie Chaplin. He and his family had been born at an oil refinery and rescued.

Charlie is what I have nicknamed a catfish. He swims in the tub, stands in the shower, and even tries to jump in the toilet. When I have a bath, he sits with me in the tub. Tell me that’s not a mermaid’s cat?

Charlie has brought so much love, light, and happiness into our life. He is company to not only us but our 17 year old cat we rescued last year.

Please consider getting your next pet from a shelter. Young or old, they all need a loving home. You never know how much they can bring into your life until you give them a chance :) <3

"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay
