Thursday ~March 27 ~2008

It is becoming harder all the time for urban dwelling creatures such as this one to find suitable shelter. Older buildings, which often have dimly lit nooks and crannies and ample shrubbery are being demolished and replaced with sanitized modern condominiums and retail facilities. These newer buildings offer no sanctuary for the scavenging city vermin, and they are forced out into the nearly apocalyptic landscape of the contemporary metropolis. 

We at Softlife are not pleased to bring you these dismal images of this poor staunch creature. It is resolutely searching the pile of debris for a place to make its home, or perhaps even it's nest.

What the creature cannot know is that although this heap of rubble is silent and still presently, tomorrow the bulldozers will resume their work, creating a deathtrap for all who have sought shelter here.

We look on in mute horror as our subject chooses what must seem to it to be a sturdy fortress in which to dwell. It seems to be almost smiling as it settles in for the night.

"Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood
Clean from my hand? No; this my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine
Making the green one red."~ Hamlet
