Hello and greetings to all the wonderful fun loving animal people that have send me green stars.I must honestly say from the bottom of my heart that it is immensely appreciated. I'm just a ordinary person retired from the Navy with a absolutely loving adorable wife whom just extremely love and adore any animal. It is my vision of passion for mankind in the world to relies and come to their inner spiritual senses and awareness that every single living animal specie must be treated with the utmost respect, loving care and enjoy all the freedom they deserve on the planet by our creator GOD.

"Why do people love cats? It's really very simple. Cats are very emotionally similar (neurologically speaking) to humans. Love, sadness, grief, happiness, kindness. They have them all. Except hate. Yes, they have instincts to protect them from harm, but that is not hate. A cat can live in horrific conditions and be harmed to the point of death and it will still only want love. Cats have no regard to their own suffering, when they are sick and dying and they see their human is sad because of this, it will comfort the human. They don't feel sorry for themselves, only us. (I never saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself...) Cats know nothing of selfishness and greed. As much as I love my cat's, I know they love me more because of this. They are art, poetry and the closest thing to angels as far as I can imagine. They very well may be. I have known the unselfish love, kindness and compassion of cats all my life. I have been constantly surrounded and protected by their truly unconditional love. And I have seen the light go out in their eyes while I was holding them in my arms whispering I love you's, because they were sick and it was time to go. I could see in them in that moment they were not scared, they only wanted me not to be sad. So why do we cry when someone's beloved fur kid passes away, even if we only know them from a distance? Because we know that love. We know the impact and importance of these darling fragile creatures.  We know the indescribable pain when they leave us. That is the foundation of this community.  Kindred spirits trying to spread love and compassion to all corners of this earth. Trying to spread the lesson that is cat. ~The Cat family~"

My life story to humans,

Dogs are like a dream come true

Playing, pouring and waiting for something to do
A dog’s soul is purely one of a kind
Always waiting for a new friend to find
Running and digging around in the dirt
Keeping their eyes open, always alert
Dogs are a man’s best friend.

Dogs are always up for a great time
And are always protecting at the scene of a crime
They have hearts as sweet as candy
Are always so happy and dandy
Soft eyes like a fluffy cloud
Walks proudly and swiftly through big crowds
Dogs are a man’s best friend.  Dogs are such beautiful creatures
Have such warm and friendly features
They are gentle, passionate, sympathetic and caring
Are very proud of the fur coat they are wearing
They are Mother Nature’s friendliest breed
Always helping to your every which need
Dogs are man’s best friend

Dogs try to hold out till the end
Although sometimes they can’t continue being your friend
When they get older its often very tough
All the surgeries, love, and medication are often not enough
Although their souls will stay with you every day
It comes time for them to pass away
Dogs are man’s best friend.

The dog.

A sweet spiritual message From Our Dearest Animal Friends and it reads as follows:


If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should wake me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle can’t be won.

You will be sad, I understand.
Don’t let your grief then stay your hand,
For this day, more than all the rest,
Your love and friendship stand the test.

We’ve had so many happy years,
What is to come will hold no fears,
You’d not want me to suffer, so
when the time comes – please let me go.

I know in time you too will see,
It is kindness you do to me,
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I’ve been saved.

Do not grieve that is should be you,
Who has to decide this thing to do,
We’ve been close – we two – these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.

Till we meet again, with love from the animal family.

Wild Fact About Me Being one of a twin. Twins need to know that they can be alone without their twin.
My Philosophy Building a successful career and live your life to the full (or living a happy life, for that matter) is not about embracing someone else's philosophy, but staying true to your own beliefs about the world and learning from the mistakes you make along the way.
What Gives Me Hope Hope is like peace. It is one of the many gifts from God. It is a gift only we can give one another.
God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Firstly we really need to change the way society treats animals. Pass legislation to reduce the control of the breeding by breeders of domestic animals and put a limit of how many domestic animals are allowed to a house hold. Run country wide organizations in providing veterinary surgeon service to the entire community at affordable rates. Give people the knowledge to make better decisions when it comes to pet ownership and stop any cruelty and suffering to animals. Provide every on this planet with basic electricity and adorable housing. Everyone on the planet deserves a good and free education or at affordable rates. Look at any avenue to create jobs and build agriculture, organic farms for everyone to participate and to inspire a positive society and stronger economy. Bring in policy that prohibits any citizen to own a fire arm. Only the military and police forces will be allowed to own and operate weapon and fire arms.

    Bonn, 22 October 2014- Tomorrow is International Snow Leopard Day and it is being celebrated for the very first time this year, with special awareness raising and educational events being held in Bishkek Kyrgyzstan. Snow leopards are among the most enigmatic of wild cats. With between 4,500 and 7,500 animals remaining in the wild today, they are also among the most threatened.
