My CatsI love cats , always have. They seem to know when you are feeling low and they stare right into your soul! When i have been in bed really ill my cats have come to join me, snuggled up and not left the room untill i told them to go and eat etc. My Ex didn't like my cats and i caught him kicking one of them, so i split with him, as a guy who will do that to an animal is not worth bothering with. People can be so very cruel to each other, just for a so caled laugh. Animals show unconditional Love for you if you are kind to them.
When i was a child i remember my dad killing kittens by drowning them down the toilet, i hated him for that. If i see children being cruel to an animal i will challenge them about their behaviour, i have tried this with adults but that can be dangerous.
