OK, I am not sure what those humans were thinkin’.

I mean, really. Drillin’ down 6 miles to the bottom of the ocean to get that black yucky schtuff, you woulda thought that the humans knew how to control Mother Nature and all her possible ways to foil them.

They don’t.

All to fill up the engines of those car thingies.

Who wants to be drivin’ in a car anyways? Cats detest those things fur a reason!!!

Lotsa paw pointin’ to be done, here, I guess. But here’s my thought. Everyone can do their part by tryin’ to conserve energy so that we don’t have to dig up the earth fur oil and other natural resources so much.

My pals keep sendin’ me great articles about the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Response, so I want to share them with you.

The National Wildlife Federation continues to put out a number of good articles on the subject. Here is one about how animals are being affected by the spill:

How the Gulf Oil Spill Could Hurt Animals.

This is a good article from Ranger Rick explaining  the spill to kids:

The Big Oil Spill Ranger Rick answers your questions.

My good friend Jane from Petfinder also wrote a good article about what people can do to help out the animals:

Gulf Oil Spill: How you can help coastal animals in danger

My pals at Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research recommend that you follow updates at the Official Website for the  Deepwater Horizon Response Unified Command.You can even follow the the Deepwater Horizon Response on Facebook.

Lets all put our paws together and purray that they get this oil leak capped soon and get the messed cleaned up soon.

Just Meowin’.

  2. Hi Wise Kitty,
    I have to say, you are an impressive cat! Great blog you’ve purr-fected. :=0)

    Thanks so much for your mention of National Wildlife Federation and Ranger Rick here.
    We are trying to keep wildlife-lovers of all ages informed and give them ways they can
    help make sure this kind of environmental tragedy doesn’t happen again.

    May you live more than nine lives and enjoy lots of naps in the sun!

  3. Thx Libby! I and my readers are very concerned about the effects of the spill on the wildlife and the whole ecology of the gulf. Teaching kids to think about the consequences of risking the environment is very important. Thank you for doing such a good job with that.

    As you can see in an earlier post, http://justmeowin.com/2010/05/01/the-slick-cat-talks-about-the-gulf-oil-spill-and-tri-state-bird-rescue-research/, one of my housemates was rescued in a small spill in Ohio by the very group overseeing the wildlife rehab response. My human was very moved by the effects of that small spill and can hardly imagine what the Gulf spill must be like.

    We will keep gettin’ the info out so folks know what they can do to help and learn about how to avoid these kind of things in the future.

    Buttons–Glad you are readin’, pal!
