70-year-old man beaten unconscious at public park 

Scary news out of the Bay Area… In Hayward, police are looking for a man who punched out a 70-year-old man at a crowded park, leaving him unconscious on the ground without help for over an hour.70-Year-Old Man Suffers Brain Trauma After Being Punched in Head at Hayward’s Kennedy Park 70-year-old Wang Wei-Wang was picking up recyclables at Kennedy Park on August 31, when he somehow got into altercation with some partygoers in the picnic area. One of the men struck Wang in the head, knocking him unconscious to the ground, where he was left lying for an hour before his wife came looking for him. The group apparently continued to party on as Wang lay there unconscious, suffering significant brain trauma. There were approximately 10 to 20 people at this gathering, and nobody offered or bothered to help.
About 6:45 p.m. Sunday, police said, Wei-Wang entered the park’s pavilion picnic area at 19501 Hesperian Blvd. to collect recyclables. At the same time, in the northeast area of the park near the horseshoe pit, a group of 10-20 adults was using the picnic area, possibly celebrating a birthday, Ormsby said.Wei-Wang was approached by a female from the group who engaged him in conversation, according to police. Moments later, a male believed to be also from the group approached Wei-Wang and punched him in the head with enough force to cause him to fall to the ground and lose consciousness, Ormsby said.
Mr. Wang is still at the hospital in critical condition, and will likely suffer permanent brain damage. Meanwhile, police are looking for the man who punched Wang. The suspect is described as an African American man standing six feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He was last seen getting into a beige vehicle and driving away. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Hayward Police at 510-293-7000 or the anonymous tip line at 510-293-7197.

SIGNAL BOOST

This is so tragic, and very scary considering how much time I spent in Hayward. This park has always seemed pretty harmless, but this incident just proves that no place and no time of day are immune to violence. Keeping Wang and his family in my thoughts.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

Let me tell to you a thing.

This is Lenore. I first saw her in a little cage at the Petco I frequent (I used to take my parents’ dog in for puppy play time), and she looked like the grouchiest, old, crotchety cat in the world, and I fell instantly in love. She was cranky, she was anti-social, hanging out at the back of her cage. Her fur was matted because she wouldn’t let the groomers near her.

She was perfect.

But I didn’t have a place for her. I wasn’t living in my own space yet, and where I was, I wasn’t allowed cats. So I pressed my face to the bars of her cage and I promised that if no one had adopted her by the time I’d bought a house, I would come back for her.

I visited her every week for over six months while I looked for a house. At one point, they had to just shave her entire rear-end because the mats or fur were so bad. They told me she clawed the heck outta the groomer that did it, screamed the entire time, and spent the next two days growling at anyone that came near the cage.

A couple of weeks later, I closed on my house. I went back and I got an employee, and I said: “That one. I need that cat.”

They got the paperwork and the lady who ran the rescue that was bringing the cats in told me that Lenore (at the time, Lila) was 8 years old, had been owned by an elderly lady who had died, and brought in to a different rescue, who’d had her for six months on top of the time I’d been seeing her at Petco.

This kitty had been living in a 3x3’ cube for over a YEAR because she was older and “less adoptable.”

I signed the paperwork, put her in a cat carrier, and drove her to my new home. I had pretty much nothing; a bed, an old couch, a couple of bookcases, and a tank of mice I called “Cat TV”. I let her out of the carrier and onto my bed, and I told her “I told you I would come back for you when I had a place. It’s not much, but it’s yours too now.”

Lenore spent the next three days straight purring non-stop. She followed me around the house purring. Sat next to me purring. Slept next to me purring. Leaning into every touch, purring, purring, always purring. She still purrs if you so much as think about petting her. She’s amazing, and I love her.

So, you know, if you’re thinking about adopting, and you see a beast that others consider “less adoptable,” think about Lenore.

FUCKING IMPORTANT

Calypso was a year old when I got her, so technically being an “adult cat” she got put into the “adult cat room” at the humane shelter. I started playing with her and she was EXTREMELY shy and after a while of trying to coax her out she started licking my hand. A lady came in behind me and said “oh that’s so sweet of you adopting an adult cat, it’s hard to find them homes. you’re really doing a good thing.” And I literally turned around to look at the lady and I started ugly sobbing and snatched her up and brought her home LONG STORY SHORT ITS TWO YEARS LATER AND SHE’S PERFECT
