    I love all animals. From a fruit fly to a big

    blue whale. I appreciate every single one,I don't kill that one spider that stays in corner of my room,I don't kill bugs outside,I rather talk to them in my head,and observe their interesting behaviour. Every single animal is precious to me. Animals help me to remember happines...

    The other day my mom said my baby,

    my cat pip, is like a tv. We own him but if he's gone one day we won't miss him. I was livid. I'm at home 24/7 to help out and I don't have a social life because of it, so she says it's my fault, and she disregards my feelings towards MY pet. Not hers, not my brothers, MINE...

    If You Don't Believe Me

    just raise your voice to a dog who loves you. Than tell me animals don't have feelings.

    I see my cats get angry at eachother,

    cuddle together and if you give one more attention you can tell the other is jealous.

    All animals have feelings,

    humans are animals. It freaks me out that so many humans think they are so different from all other types of animals, and can't understand that many animals are intelligent and do feel.

    They are no different

    than us. They have feelings. They feel sad, happy, angry, anxious, scared, threatened, just like us. When you yell at them, they too feel scared and sad. When you treat them with the respect they deserve, they feel happy and content. When you constantly abuse them, they will...

    I always have a dilemma about ZOO.

    I know ZOO is a place where we can finally see wild animals but I feel sorry for those animals. They are suppose to be running wild. I would be perfectly happy with pictures and visiting sick animal shelters would be enough for education.

    I don't want to have a baby.

    I'll be busy enough taking care of the windfall animals as an future animal doctor. When I realize that they have feelings too, my heart grew even bigger for them. I'm a big fan of horses, cats, farm animals. Sigh.... I'm so ready for this journey in my life.

    Animal cruelty...it's the worst crime someone

    could do in my eyes, in my mind...animals have feelings and they don't deserve to be treated like objects. They deserve to be treated like a living thing...don't hit them, don't abuse them, don't hurt them. How would you like it if you were hit, abused, or hurt? Just please...

    I think I hold animals in a higher respect

    than most humans, they just seem so much more compassionate and gentle, unlike humans who, as a species, seem a bit too violent. maybe we "evolved" too much, though I guess we're just animals too

    On my way in tonight I saw a rabbit standing

    over another rabbit that had apparently been hit by a car so I did what I thought was the right thing to do. I stopped my car and turned on my hazard lights, then I picked up the dead rabbit and put it in the grass so it won't have to keep getting run over by careless morons.

    My two cents on animals through an essay I wrote

    for class: Title: The Duty of Life It is generally accepted that killing another human being is worse than killing a dog. One thinks about the consequences of killing a fly or an ant far less. However, each animal still has a life to live, and the right to deny any...
