Jonathon, a fluffy, maybe-a-little-chubby-but-who-can-tell-what-with-all-that-fur, black and white cat rests his sleepyhead on the wheels of an office chair as he dozes off into dreamland. Photos courtesy Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter.

Jonathon, what a cutie! Do I love this little guy because he looks delightfully ornery, to wit:

Hell to the yes! Just look at that crankyface! Adorable.

But judging from his backstory, Jonathon has plenty of reasons to be grumpy. An ex-feral cat who is FIV+ and has diabetes (um, maybe?), Jonathon needs a compassionate family who can understand and accommodate his special medical and behavioral needs.

His foster peeps at Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter explain:

Meet Jonathon: This big boys story began one cold winters day when we did some trapping. We were trapping some kittens and also trapped him. We thought we would just TNR but when he went for surgery he was very beat up and needed medical attention. He was very WILD and also tested positive for FIV!!!!! We had to put his medicine in his food. With time Jonathon tamed down and he is now a good boy that you just have to understand not to push him over his limit but otherwise he loves to play and you can now pick him up and we would never think of releasing him now. He is enjoying the good indoor life with plenty of food and toys and people who love him. Jonathon just needs a real cat person to adopt him and let him rule the roost!

02-2009 We found out Jonathon is diabetic. He is in a foster home now and doing great. He will either stay at his foster home forever or until someone who knows about diabetic cats is wanting to adopt him.

04-2009 Jonathon’s diabetes went away but came back a month later. Jonathon is a calm, laid back guy who is just as cute and funny as can be! He gets along well with the other kitties in his foster home and enjoys looking outside. He is playful and quite a character! He likes to “headbutt” his humans and his kitty friends. Contact FOPAS to meet this sweet boy today!

If you’re that totally rad adoptive family that Jonathon has been waiting for, hop on over to the Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter’s Petfinder page for contact info and details.

And don’t let Jonathon’s FIV+ diagnosis scare you off, mkay?

Testing, testing, 1-2-3!

July 14th, 2010 2:29 am by Kelly


Welcome to the brand-spanking-new Perfect Pizza Press blog, maintained by the PPP’s very own resident vegan-feminist blog mistress (blistress?), Kelly Garbato! Some of you may already know me from my own place, easyVegan.info. No? How about POP! goes The Vegan!, then? Doesn’t ring a bell, you say? ChallengeOppression.com? Still no luck, huh? Kansas City Freecycle? Nope? Flickr? Twitter? Facebook? Uncle!

Anyhow, as you’ve probably already guessed, I’m going to be talking a lot about food in this here space. And not just any food: pizza. Specifically, cheesy, crusty, melty, meaty, vegan pizza! (Yes, such a thing exists. It’s 2010, peoples; get with the times!) We’ll have NOM-y pizza recipes, gratuitous pizza (not-)porn, pizza-related humor – you name it.

But it’s not all about the pizza. (Mostly, but not totally!) I’ll also be touching upon a wide range of food issues here, such as: The environmental impact of modern agriculture. Diet, nutrition and public health. Food justice. Hunger and poverty. The intersectionality of oppressions. Ways that you can adopt a more compassionate lifestyle and become involved in combating abuse – human, animal, environmental – in your own community.

Because the PPP was born and raised in the Kansas City area (the utensil, not the company founders, silly – we’re New Yawkers!), area events will be a common topic, too. In particular, I hope to highlight local animal rescue efforts, for example, by featuring an adoptable animal located in the KC area every week.

Of course, as the Perfect Pizza Press makes its slow-but-steady march to market, I’ll also keep you apprised of our progress.

So that’s that. Until next we meet, stay shiny!

Oh, and before I forget: do join us on our Facebook page for additional links, updates, photos and whatnot, kay? And Twitter, too, if it’s not a bother? Please and thank you!
