I Love Animals More Than People

    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...

    Loving Animals More Than People...

    I was surprised to see someone else felt that way sometimes, so do I:)..but I also love people in my life, but yeh, sometimes I love animals more, because people invariably hurt you, or cause problems, no matter what, no matter how sweet, or pretty or giving, but the cuddly...

    Ever Since I Was A Little Girl...

    I was about seven or eight and I would feed the stray cats that would come by our house every morning. Most of my childhood involved helping or saving animals in some way... and now I feel like this has shaped me in such a way that I feel as though I have more sympathy for...

    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

    Animals Comfort My Wounded Heart And Soul

    I grew up in an urban environment, and never had a pet. There are a great many things I wish I could change about my childhood, but very high on the list is never having had a pet. I honestly think that if I had had an animal to comfort and nurture, and in turn receive comfort...

    So Sue Me!

    There hasn't been a person in my life that hasn't said "I wish you treated me like that" or that they wish they were so and so of an animal that I had. You know why that is? It's because people have ego, people are complicated, people will use you if given the chance, at the end...

    Cats Rock. People Suck.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Animal Brain

    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.
