I used to eat animals, as did (or do) most of the people I know and love. I understand that people still do that. But please, please, stop referring to it as a “personal choice”. A personal choice is something that affects only you, not the lives of others. If you think eating body parts is a personal choice, you’re forgetting someone.

I firmly believe that if you still eat animals or things that come out of animals, you should be 100% knowledgable and comfortable about where these “products” come from. There are countless undercover investigations I could share, but few are as comprehensive as the short video found here: *** www.meat.org ***If you’re still supporting this industry with your money, you owe it to yourself to see what happens behind those concrete walls.(photo by We Animals)

Who’s looking for a new best friend? These pups (and many, many more) are all hoping to make it out of the overcrowded Orange County shelter alive. You can find all the information about these pups (and their shelter neighbors) in this album compiled and frequently updated by a fantastic volunteer: http://bit.ly/OCshelterIf you aren’t local to the area, I guarantee there are equally adorable and pleading faces behind bars in a shelter near you!

RIP Piggy. I know you were scared today, and I know your journey to death was painful, but I also know the Toronto Pig Save team gave you as much love as their hearts could offer. You won’t be forgotten.

I don’t wear tees very often, but Bella's "The White Tee" Pinterest board inspired me to add this style to The Tree Kisser shop! Pair it with the right denim, chunky accessories, and casual heels for a simple, stylish combo.

Images like these, photographed by We Animals for Toronto Cow Save / Toronto Pig Save are why I created the “Animals Are Not Fabric” tops. It devastates me to know that this beautiful being on the left entered that slaughterhouse as an innocent, sentient individual and left as a bloody, filthy piece of skin (still steaming from the warmth of the body) like the one shown on the right. The fact that in 2014, we’re still taking lives for fashion, blows my mind.(If you are still under the impression, as I was for many years, that the leather industry is simply a byproduct of the meat industry and thus not contributing to additional deaths, you can learn all about that here:http://bit.ly/1eCE3KV)

Taking camo back from the hunters! This new eco-fleece pullover is SO soft inside. I can only offer men’s sizes in the shop right now, but I’ve been lounging in the size small (cute with leggings!) because I can’t get over the coziness of the fabric. Available now on thetreekisser.com!

Wow. I can’t believe I just finally watched this full video, and I regret not sharing it earlier. This is shocking. Though, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised by the hatred and harassment shown by people who torture animals for a living. On January 18th, a group of animal advocates met outside the home of a vivisector to host a silent vigil in honor of the eleven monkeys currently being experimented on at UCLA. They were met by a crowd of screaming, verbally (and I would say physically) abusive antagonists. 
What I find most upsetting about this confrontation (aside from seeing the obvious discomfort and grief experienced by brave, compassionate friends of mine) is that these are the people responsible for “caring” for imprisoned animals in laboratories. If this is how they treat humans (who, as you’ll see, they value infinitely above non-human animals), I can’t imagine how they treat their captive victims. To learn more about the tragedies (and scientific failings) of vivisection, please check out www.progressforscience.com.
And, if you are able, please join these heroes on Feb 15 in Los Angeles as they host another vigil. Some information can be found on Facebook here, but please email ProgressForScience@gmail.com for full details (they have added this extra security measure for the safety of their protesters).
