What/who changed my life and why
Becoming an exotic animal breeder changed my life forever because I recognized that those animals were more like than unlike the human animal I am .I shut down my breeding facility ,went vegan and became a sanctuary for abused neglected behavioral problem exotics - the throw aways of the exotic pet trade . It shaped my entire philosophy and world view .
"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it."
- Mark Twain

The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men. ~Alice Walker
