Kitten used as chew toy undergoes emergency surgery
Never autoplay videos
An 8-week-old kitten, who was rescued after being dyed purple and used as a chew toy for a larger animal, is recovering after he had emergency surgery in California during the weekend.
>The kitten, weighing less than two pounds and nicknamed “Smurf” because of his purple-blue hue, needed abdominal surgery, Fox 2 reported. Smurf, who was brought to a San Jose shelter on Dec. 28 with about 20 bite marks and deep wounds on his body, will likely require several weeks for a full recovery and may be ready for adoption in three months or so, veterinarian Monica Rudiger said.
This is fucked up. I hope that little guy is treated like a king for the rest of its life.

My cat really wants to go outside, but I'm afraid he'd never come back. What do?
He grew up in a barn but he hasn't been outside since I adopted him back in mid-2015. Occasionally I'll hold him, go outside and walk around a little bit, but I won't let him down. I live right next to some busy roads, what happens if he gets squashed by a car?

Getting a branch to take root

Don't know if it's the right place (there's no gardening board), but maybe some /an/on has greener thumbs than I.
I was given a very large branch of a lovely jasmine shrub from a relative, and I've placed short sections of it (~25cm) in water, hoping they'd send out roots from between the segments so I can later plant them in soil; but (while still alive and green) they don't take out roots, as other segmented plants have for me.
I've very little experience, is there a way to encourage it to grow, like adding certain nutrients to the water? Or is this method not even feasible with jasmine? It worked for me with others.
