OH LOOK, A SHINY THING! The Origin of the Surprised Kitty
Earlier I linked to the Surprised Kitten, an internet sensation that, like the Dramatic Chipmunk and the Dancing Hamsters, have become a bizarre "everyone's seen it" kind of thing.

Don’t be fooled into voting for the largest animal rights organization in the country and its handiwork this election cycle. Vote no on Measure 5 if you want to protect the rights of North Dakotans to write our own laws and do what’s best for animals.
Measure 5, the Prevention of Animal Cruelty Initiative, is being promoted and funded by the Humane Society of the United States. The Humane Society of the United States is not related to your local animal shelter. The society contributes less than 1 percent of its multimillion dollar budget to local humane societies and pet shelters.
The Grand Forks Circle of Friends Humane Society will host festival celebrating man’s best friend Sunday. The fourth annual All 4 Fun Dog Festival runs from noon to 3 p.m. at the Humane Society at 4375 N. Washington St.
The Polk County Humane society is trying to treat a dog that may have been hit by a train as a result of animal abuse. Witnesses say they saw the dog dragging himself by railroad tracks near Fisher. A man who found the dog claims its back legs were tied with twine when he found it.
Proponents of the animal cruelty ballot initiative go on to use other statistics in misleading ways on their website — trying to pass off a survey of 38 people in Utah nearly 17 years ago and another survey of 57 families in New Jersey nearly 30 years ago as justification for their 2012 cause.
The Legislature has failed time and again to strengthen animal cruelty laws. In fact, during the 2011 session, not only did attempts to change laws fail but also a resolution to study the issue failed.

The measure is narrowly crafted to make the worst types of cruelty to companion animals a felony.
It is limited to dogs, cats and horses, so it does not have any impact on agriculture, hunting or other legal activities.
For the Stockmen’s Association to oppose the one hope that North Dakotans have of making the torture of dogs, cats and horses a felony in this state because the group has some beef with the Humane Society of the United States is ridiculous.
Collection aims to pay for surgery Even as the man walked out the door, Nancy O’Hearn knew she’d never see him again. He had just surrendered a cream-colored toy poodle to the Humane Society of Richland and Wilkin counties after saying his family had been recently evicted. He assured O’Hearn that he would be back shortly to give away a second animal, a cat, and to pay the $50 surrender fee. O’Hearn, the organization’s secretary, knew better. The man left behind one of the saddest-looking dogs she had seen in her four years with the Humane Society. The 6-year-old pooch, named Millie, had no use of her back legs.
Wal-Mart had earlier made move
McDonald’s and Target dropped one of the nation’s largest egg suppliers after an animal rights group released an undercover video of the egg producer’s farms in three states.
Shelter cuts costs after cornucopia of kitties The Humane Society of Polk County is up to its ears in cats. In the past month the shelter acquired 40 cats from a home in Crookston. These animals, along with the shelter’s other feline residents, bring the total number of cats to 69.
The Anoka County sheriff's office fielded three complaints about the horse farm in 2007 and another in 2010, said Paul Sommer, department spokesman. The Anoka County attorney's office declined to file charges at those times.
