We also see organizations forming to combat Canine Cancer. What we seem to forget sometimes is that all cancer research is related - what helps one living being, helps another. Medicine has no boundaries and neither does research. Often it was the family dog placed in a drug trial for a physical malady that helped scientists formulate better and more beneficial treatment for grandmothers and grandfathers and moms and dads and sisters and brothers. I am speaking about clinical trials - not research performed on unwilling and innocent animals in a laboratory setting.

Let us all gather in our h♥arts purrs to heal all forms of malady here on earth - illness, sorrow, rain forrest desecration, purging critical species from our planet through hunting and environmental ruination. We need to heal our bodies and our souls and our minds. Let us purr for all of us, at all times and for all reasons to gain PURRfect harmony and health.

Confucius Cat says:
Week 19 of Purrs 4 Peace details are as follows: Week nineteen’s appointed time is Sunday, October 18, 2009. Participants should purr for three minutes commencing at 12 p.m. EDT (U.S.) which is 5:00 p.m. (17:00 hrs.) BST in the U.K. The cat’s human staff should assist their cats with the project by stroking and nuzzling the cat at the appointed time.
Please post your cat name and the country you purr in at www.confuciuscat.blogspot.com as a COMMENT if you are participating in this historic project. (posting a link to your own website-if you have one-is encouraged.) Or let me know by message on twitter or facebook.
Posting purrs on facebook (Acolytes of Confucius Cat or as friend to Alley Mason) and twitter (@ConfuciusCat) is encouraged, since it inspires purring in others, but not required. On twitter please use #purrs4peace in your tweets.
