Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

Hello, I'm dynastygal, but you may see me on other sites as Chenli (that tends to be my veg*n forum handle).

I am very much into AR and I was vegetarian from the age of about 13 to 16 (I tried before I was 13 to go veggie but my willpower wasn't as good as it is now), and then I "upgraded" to veganism when I was about 16 and a half. I'm now approaching my 21st birthday... (next Tues :P)

Unfortunately for myself, I was a naive vegetarian before becoming vegan. It was only through seeing PETA videos that I realised the truth behind my consumption of dairy and eggs.

Throughout my life, I have shared my homes with several companion animals, all of which were and are rescues. When I was ever so young (about 5 I think) we had two companion kittens called cleo and patra, unfortunately, being a young child I was not best suited to caring after kittens so as far as I've been told they went to a new home. When I was about 6 or 7, we got Barney - a collie X Alsation from Wood Green in Godmanchester - his previous "carers" had abused him, hence his being at Wood Green. Alas, he had to be put down when I was 15 due to a heart attack, but my love for him still remains. Now, we have three new companion dogs - having got our first new one when I was about 18 from an animal sanctuary run by vegans that I volunteer at. She's Naboo, a 10 yr old collie x. Next we have Sally, a 7 yr old collie x red setter whom I fell in love with at an animal rescue place run by a friend of the family and his vegan wife. Sally came when I was 19. Lastly, Rolo, a collie x 5 yr old male came from a rescue place in Manchester...he's a handful. Photos of all are in the photo section.

Moving on, Casper, a tabby queen who was rescued, in a sense (she came to us), from a situation where she was basically a money-making machine. She wasn't fed properly, nor did she or her kittens recieve any prophylactic treatment. Same goes for all the other animals that have passed through that household - it is estimated around 40+ cats/kittens have gone through that household in the past couple of years. She now has a new home and is spayed and in good health. Her son, Bob, is still with us as are three other cats from the same household Casper was from; Bungle, Bungles daughter Bud, and Bungles other daughter Stella. So yes, all the recently mentioned cats have come from the same household, and 3 kittens also came from said household about a year or so ago and were transfered to a farm sanctuary as we are unable to look after so many cats!

I have also fostered a male kitten called Oscar for the sanctuary I volunteer at as he was quite unsociable when he was first there. He now has a lovely home with another rescue tabby. At the moment, I'm fostering a Mum (Jesse) and her two kittens, Tilly and Jasmine (she only has one eye).

As for other stuff about me, I've done a BTEC National Diploma in Animal Management, I like anime, David Bowie, and the SAW movies. I also love horror books, particularly Stephen King.

Um not sure what else to put.
