The idea that animals have emotional lives and are capable of detecting emotions in others has been gaining ground for decades. Empathic behavior has been observed in apes and monkeys, and described by many pet owners (especially dog owners). Recently, scientists demonstrated “emotional contagion” in mice, a situation in which one animal’s stress worsens another’s.

A new model of empathy

people often ask why i don’t eat animals. there are so many reasons. here is one.

We have a tendency, especially in an achievement-oriented culture, to want to solve problems and repair brokenness — to propose, plan, fix, interpret, explain and solve. But what seems to be needed here is the art of presence — to perform tasks without trying to control or alter the elemental situation. Allow nature to take its course. Grant the sufferers the dignity of their own process. Let them define meaning. Sit simply through moments of pain and uncomfortable darkness. Be practical, mundane, simple and direct.

The Art of Presence

I am going to build a cardboard box fortress for Ms Coco Kittles, to apologize for stuffing her into a tiny box and bringing her on an airplane for a cross country move.

We were delayed several hours due to snow, and her total time spent in the carrier was 15 hours. She didn’t speak to me for a full day afterwards, although she is currently very happy settling into the new apartment. As I have unpacked all my boxes, they can now be recycled into a Kitteh Fortress.

Patrick Jacobs

“Jacobs’s dioramas provide peeks into a world in which reality is presented in such exquisite detail it begins to look surreal.

The artist draws from art history and garden pest control brochures alike to create miniature 3D works of art, viewed through a circular glass lens. Viewers get the impression that they are looking into another realm, simultaneously natural and constructed, familiar and unknown. In a way, we get a taste for a fish’s life from inside the bowl.”

I’m crying because this is incredible
