The older I get ..the more in tune with the surrounding world I become. There are things people take for granted and they shouldn't.
I have 2 cats inside, care for 4 ferral cats outside(they adopted us), squirrels that come up to my back door and a few birds that seem to wait for me ... and 2 dogs. I sometimes feel like Snow White and my forrest friends! But what amazes me alot these days is...I think all of these creatures care for me back(in one way or another).
When I start to pull in my driveway..the outside cats seem to come running from everywhere- like Anthony running thru the streets of Boston on Prince Spaghetti day. Meowing and rubbing up by my legs. The dogs rush me like Dino rushing Fred...and when I come on here..Mushy lays in front of the puter and puts her tiny head in my hand, lays on her back and kinda folds her paws..purring and having that look of ecstacy. When she does this..the feeling I get is such a good one...like hey..she really loves me!!
Every night I make five plates of dinner..one for me, Brit and husband..and one for Sadie and Baxter...and they look for it! (cats have their own little setup going)
Oreo will rub herself on my hands as I sleep ..I guess to wake me up.
lol..ok I am drifting here to the ranty parts!!
I get mad when I hear of people abusing animals ..or they say ..it is just an animal..technically so are we! Getting back to the older I get..I now realize that this earth isn't just ours....it also belongs to all the other species on it also. We should have been stewards of the earth..not it's destroyers.
Everytime I see a new project knocking down a forrest or wooden area...it irritates me. Knock down some piece of junk ,a non fixable place. If it has abestos..abate it, the other species need to have some place to live too.
Another thing that gets me.... when people say certain groups of animals are "over populated"! They are going into residential areas and attacking humans and destroying property..... Let's cut down their numbers...hey..take a look...humans are way over populated. I wouldn't want some one cutting down our numbers the way they cut down theirs. The reason they are interacting so much is that some builder destroyed their natural habitat and moved us in! ps..how many stripmalls does Long Island need..so many are empty and then they go build another one.
ok.......back to the personal stuff!~!
My girls tease me ..that these animals get away with so much more than they ever would have! ...and it's true! She said that since I have kept the cats in my room it looks destroyed..well she's right..and I don't care...they are happy little buggers!
Now...there is no need for any nastiness, name calling...and whatevers...I know not everyone agrees with my views...and it is what it is...my view.
