A friend who vacationed on Biyadhoo Island in the Maldives this past December encountered the abuse of animals. Her snippet of paradise was turned into a vacation in Hell. It was discovered that friendly cats and kittens were intentionally having limbs broken and being sent to neighbouring Villivaru Island. An island that would have little to no fresh water or food available for these animals to survive causing them to potentially starve to death.
Here is the link to her story #BoycottBiyadhoo and to the petition she started Rescue-blue-from-an-agonizing-death.
Below is her story:
Sixty-five days ago my life changed forever and not in a good way. Sixty-five days ago my mom, my best-friend, lost her battle to stage 4 lung cancer.
She was only 62 years old and died on November 2, 2014.
My mom beat the odds. She was given 5 months to live when diagnosed on October 19, 2012. This fact was kept a secret from us. I understand why it was her wish, however if I had known that, I would have spent every weekend with her and not every second or third one over the next two years. I am not saying I disagree with her choice. It was her choice to make. I just wish I had more time to spend with her.
I miss my mom. I miss our random chats about nothing and everything under the sun. I miss her advice she would always give me on sewing and cooking. I miss her voice. Her hugs and kisses. Her huge loving heart. I miss everything about her.
