    A Whale of a Surprise

    Our high speed winding ride through the coastal hills brought a surreal quality of swirling, blurred trees, and houses, intermittently appearing to dance in front of the backdrop of ocean and sky blues. We were not virgin participants to this heady otherworldly travel up the...

    I had to kill my Guinea pig yesterday.

    I say kill because that's how I feel. She was perfectly healthy and she just had and injury on her front paw that required amputation. I could not afford this surgery because of all the debt I am already in because of my car and previous vet costs I've had for my other animals...

    How Many??

    I've always loved animals, they're all so different! I used to really enjoy going to zoos when I was little to see all these animals. The variety is astounding to see, it gives me the chills how many animals there actually are!

    I love every kind of animal.

    (Well, most animals at least!) Animals certainly are unique. Some re furry, some are scaly. But really they re all just the same. That is one of the many reasons on why I love animals!

    I am heavily against animal testing

    and the fur industry. I am also against factory farming, but feel like a hypocrite for saying so because I am a pescitarian and I eat seafood. I do not like PETA though. And if you DO eat meat, that's fine with me as long as you respect my diet choices as well. I will not shove...

    The Ark That Is My House

    With 5 fish, 4 dogs, 4 rabbits, and 1 cat, you could say that I'm definitely an animal lover! I have to stay away from Humane Society ads as I always want to take all the animals home with me :)

    Animals don't have the potential to do evil.

    They kill and hunt all in the name of survival.
