#21: I am Bear Claw
Heavy snow ’bout to fall any minute now. Don’t mind me while I drape myself in furs and skins to keep dry and toasty. Do mind, though, that all furs and skins I buy these days are vintage from a time that predates my own heartbeat, and that is to say, my own purchasing patterns in no way affect the increased supply and demand of an industry supporting cruelty to living, breathing creatures. Nor does my vegan diet. Personally, I needn’t nurture myself on the suffering of other beings for the sake of nourishment or fashion. There! Thanks for bearing with me while I made my peace.
Now, allow me to get off my high horse, and out into the snow (dressed like Bear Claw).
