    The Year Of The Cat

    I moved into the house I am living at in 2008. The year of the cat began in full force. Since then, 5 yrs later, the felines that has came to me, yes, each one came knocking at my door. They were starved, homeless and most were pregnant. sigh........... ! I have 3 sheds, a 6ft...

    Said This For Years

    Animals don't stab you in the back, don't purposely hurt your feelings, love unconiditionally and only inflict pain when the have to.  They are the best of us and yet we treat them so poorly overall.  People suck.

    They Are Just Better In All Ways!

    Animals pass no criticism. They take you for what or who you are. They seem to understand me when no person on the green earth does. I've lost many people in my life but last year when my dog died I was beside myself with grief. I still cry sometimes when I think about him. Some...

    Animals Deserve More Love

    Ok, maybe not snakes. and maybe animals can't comfort you with words when you're having a bad day. But if my house was burning down, I'd save the animals FIRST before any of the people. I think we owe it to animals to give them as much love as we have. They ask for so little...

    Why Am I Even Human

    Who wouldn't love animals more than people? Okay, I get it. I am not ignorant towards the danger posed by many animals, of the many deaths caused by animal encounters, of the health hazards brought even by pets. Trust me, I am fully aware. But I still believe humans are scarier...

    They Are So Loveable<3

    I can most defiantly say I favor animals over human beings. Animals are pure and innocent creatures, they won't betray or hurt you like people do to one another on a regular basis. They love more than humans and have unconditional amounts of it to give. <3

    I would do anything for any animal I come

    across, yet I would not do the same for people. animals have no cruel intentions. they don't want to get the upper hand in anything. and I know I can trust them because they have no way of proving I can't. unlike humans.

    They Just Make Sense.

    I think that the most significant thing about animals is that they are almost never deceptive--you know when one likes you or one doesn't. They also have this overwhelming joy about them, regardless of how old or hungry or worn out they are. I would much prefer to sit around...

    I'm not sure just when I transferred my emotions from humans to cats. I volunteered at a feline adoption center for four years, and I ran a cats-only pet sitting business for four years also. The turning point may have been a cranky 17-year-old named Max. I took care of him...

    Why You May Ask

    I feel this way a lot because animals show uncondiional love.  They don't judge and accept you for you. They live in the moment and enjoy the simple life and are not selfish.  They are who they are and do not try to be anything else. We can learn a lot from animals.
