Cat Lovers Group at Care2
A home without a cat is like
a garden without flowers.
"I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...
the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope,
fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry.
"God," I said, "this is terrible!
Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly:
"I have done something," he replied,
"I created you."

About Me I love all animals. Most close friends are cats. Love children.
Brave. Conscientious. True friend. Feel free in every company. Like good humor. Sensitive and romantic inside, rarely show feelings. Staid. Take risks. Stress resistant. Hard working. Never weep(except,when close animal or human dies). Less words, more action! Don´t weep, help! Love is not in sweet words, love is in action. Deep respect to Native Americans!
No respect for homosexuals! Homosexual lifestyle
has always been and will be abnormal.

Quotation Respect for life
(Albert Schweitzer)

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats
(Albert Schweitzer)

Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him.
(Albert Schweitzer)

Whoever is spared personal pain must feel himself called to help in diminishing the pain of others.
We must all carry our share of the misery which lies upon the world.
(Albert Schweitzer)

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
(Albert Schweitzer)

Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person.
Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of no faith is of no love.
(Erich Fromm)

    The end of the party. More than 100 000 people are singing together the song about Estonia. The president and the first lady are singing together with people. "Do you know the land, which lies from the shore of the lake Peipsi to the shore of Baltic sea, and from the forest of hill Munamägi to the shore of Finnish bay? This is the land, where my cradle swinged once, and the cradle of my fathers too. Lets sing about it! This beautiful land is my homeland. Here grow young Estonian men, to live in freedom. Here grows Estonian maiden for Estonian man.

    Song about Northland Estonia - the land where we were born. The land of the nights in winds and snowstorms. The land of the sea waves, the severe and rigid land, the land of nothern lights. The land of ancient fir forests,love you and never leave you. The huts in the forest and silent winter tracks drown in snow, so tender are the singing sleigh bells. Northland our birthland, the beaten ground of the battles, I will always carry you in my soul. The land of the sea shore and waves, I never leave you. Singer is 9-years old Estonian boy Toomas Uibo

    Estonian soil and Estonian heart - who could separate them. I want to be buried in your soil, holy fatherland. The singer Urmas Alender was one of the best singers of Estonia. He perished in great shipwreck of ferry "Estonia" in Baltic Sea 1994. No one Estonian can keep back tears listening this song.
