Five Things. A black rhino, World Vegan Day and pie pops.

Hallo meine Lieben,

hope your week is going fine and you will have a wonderful weekend ahead of you! Please check out my friend Celeste's Five Things as well.


1. World Vegan Day


Happy World Vegan Day! Every day should be World Vegan Day but I guess it is a good start to raise some awareness. And I think it is a really weird to day "Be nice to all animals on this day (not just the cute ones)." It should be normal to be nice to all people on every day of the year. But I guess I know what they mean.


2. This petition.


I was shocked and in disbelief when I first read about it. Then I just got rally angry. Here is what's happening:
"A Texas hunting group is auctioning off a permit to shoot and kill one of the most endangered animals in the world: a black rhino. The Dallas Safari Club, an international organization of hunters and wildlife enthusiasts, said they plan to auction off a permit to hunt an endangered black rhino from the government of the Republic of Namibia. However, the organization says their goal is actually to save the rhino, of which there are approximately 5,055. "First and foremost, this is about saving the black rhino," Ben Carter, the executive director of the Dallas Safari Club, said in a statement. "There is a biological reason for this hunt, and it's based on a fundamental premise of modern wildlife management: populations matter; individuals don't. By removing counterproductive individuals from a herd, rhino populations can actually grow." 
What a faulty logic. I hate these bastards.
You can protest against this here.  Please help. 


3. These pie pops.


I know cake pops but I have never seen pie pops before.  I think it is a pretty cool idea and I will definitely give them a try. Anything pie-related sounds good to me.


4.  These socks.


I need these socks, please. I mean, come on, the combination of warm feet and cats is just perfect. 


5. This baby got bat bag.


How can you not love this? This bag is way too cute and the name of it is fabulous. I want, please! Christmas wishlist!


Have a lovely Friday!

  1. This pie pops look amazing!! I love when hunters try to claim they are helping animals, the fact that they try to justify it means that they know it's wrong.

    Happy world vegan day!

  2. Hi Katrin

    Nice post! The socks look really different and this bat purse is just perfect for that scary look for upcoming Halloween!

    The rhinos are endangered in India too.here merciless poachers and hunters use axe to cut their horns, leaving the half dead animal withering in pain...all this pains me deeply...:(

    1. Thank you, Ankita! I really really love the socks and the bag! So cute!

      It makes me so sad and mad that people are able to do things like that! What a stupid world do we live in?

  4. What the WHAT? I read through that paragraph (#2) twice and still couldn't figure out what the heck that's supposed to mean. Someone's been sniffing gunpowder again. I think trophy hunting needs to be banned altogether!! That would be a TRUE way to save endangered animals!

    1. Yeah, it should be banned. I have no idea what is wrong with these people. I just don't understand it. How can people be like that?!?

      Delete
  5. Yeah, I'm not really understanding their logic on the black rhino hunting. That's awful.

    I'm curious about these pie pops - wouldn't they be too gooey in the center to stay on a stick? You'll have to tell me if they turned out well if you end up making them!

    1. It is so terrible. These people should be punished!

      Yeah, I wondered about that too. I am not really sure if it works out the way it is supposed too. I will give it a try and let you know!
