Thank you. They cannot say it with words (but I'm sure they show you in so many other ways), so I'll say it for them... thank you!
I prefer the company of animals to humans. They're true. They don't lie, back stab, gossip, or generally annoy me. The show happiness like no
other - my JRs gets so happy when they meet someone that they'll little butties will go so crazy they tinkle all over the place. Imagine being so
happy to see someone your bladder goes.
They're fun and full of love.
I got two cats and two dogs, and quite a few fish. I love them all so much, they're all wonderful, and make my life so much brighter.
That said, they also drive me blooming bonkers! Hahahahaha! A tomcat that hates everyone, and will loudly let me know his opinion, should I dare to
serve the same brand of cat food two days in a row... or let it be 3-4 days since last time he had his special treats (fish or shrimp).... a kitten
that will purposely climb up the chimney as she knows I will then take out the laser light just to get her butt out of there... two JRs that sounds
like a herd of elephants and they jet around the house, and will never listen when off the leash. The fish never cause me a headache... hahahaha!
Unless they're ill that is, and then it's the task of getting them to the vets. Ack.
However, or maybe due to my bond with animals, to kind of compensate for the lack of compassion I have for human suffering... When I have extra money
I try to support a charity that goes to children that really needs it. I don't even like kids. Hahahahaha. No really... they bore me. But I do
not want any kids starving in the world (nor animals)... there's no need for it. A few years ago I came into some money. Not enough to change my
life in any way, but I figured it might change someone elses life... and instead of supporting any animal charity, I used 10% of the money to sponsor
an orphaned child in Africa. Children to me are innocent, like animals (but less cute and furry!)... and I think all human children should be
equal... and they should all be safe, have decent food and a good education. This is not to say I don't think animal should be safe and have decent
food... aminal cruelty affects me much more than cruelty to humans... I guess I taint humans as more evil, even if they've done no wrong.
If it was a choice between a teenager/adult human and an animal to help... it would depend on the animal... I would probably help the animal if a cat
or dog... any other and the human would come first. If it was a child or an animal, I would like to think I would save the child. Luckily I've
never encountered such a situation where I had to make an instant choice of whom to save, and hopefully never will.
