Animal Angels: The Loving Calf

Angel stories presented by Erica Sofrina, Motivational Speaker, Teacher and Author.

In this beautiful and moving Animal Angel story, Care2 member Tumeria Langlois writes about a very special friendship she had with a calf named Blitz.

Tumeria with her Calf Blitz

A Very Special Friendship by Tumeria Langlois

I was fortunate enough to have a very wonderful relationship with an animal that most people only see from a distance.

If more people had the opportunity to connect with farm animals, I think they would realize that there really is no difference between different species in their capacity to love us.

Some of my fondest childhood memories were those spent at my cousin’s dairy farm. He ran an old fashion farm where the cows were allowed to graze in large, open fields. I was fond of the baby calves and actually became close friends with one of them. I named her Blitz because she had a lightning shaped blaze down her nose. Being only 10 years old, my cousin humorously told me that Blitz was my calf, but that she would have to live on the farm with him.

I would visit Blitz every week. Our bond soon became very strong. Blitz was very curious by nature and would manage to chew through the ropes that kept her confined against the wall of the barn. Several times, when I would go to visit her, I would find her roaming around inside the barn. When my cousin resorted to using a leather collar and chains to keep her restrained, I would undo the latch and take her for walks around the barn myself.

Cute story my ass, Isabelle.
I find it heartbreaking that this animal loved and trusted a human then got murdered by humans. We are the most disgusting species on this planet.

It just breaks your heart hearing about people and their friendships with cows, knowing that they are considered property, inanimate objects to be bought, sold and slaughtered. How anyone can eat meat is beyond me.

What a horrible way to die !
I do not buy meat anymore .
Poor Blitz. R.I.P.

Women are still seen to be subhuman and here only to serve men in much of the world. If 50% of the human race cannot acknowledge the other 50% as 'human'- what can other creatures expect?

I completely understand this: I've been friends with many animals over the years -- from cattle to horses, to other people's pet dogs and cats and bunnies, to wild raccoons, skunks, birds and mice. Sometimes you build a connection, and you care and as much as with any human friend, and it's a blessing when it happens; but it always seems that the animal chooses the friendship.

I believe all animals have the capacity to communicate with humans. They need time to develop that channel and trust to open the flow. It was a sad day indeed for Blitz when the person she could communicate with was not around when she was sent to slaughter house. Sure, some cows are raised to be sold. But exceptions can be made when it's clearly the one who chose to be near you instead of following the herd? Over & over again we learn of animals who are different from all the rest and I think we ought to give them respect as an individual.
