That is wonderful news, Barb! Charmaine is right, people have to be very cautious with their animals. Also, I get so upset when I see cats outside, loose, by their pet parents. All cats need to be indoor cats, it's not safe for them to be outside, loose. A responsible pet owner keeps their animals indoors, and on a leash if they take them outside. Again, so happy for Kona and her family! Thanks for posting this, Barb! :-)

See what happens when we unite in positive intentions, thoughts and prayers?

Reality is that which is agreed upon.

That is why we need to know the present circumstances but keep our eyes and our beliefs on what we WANT to express, materialize, postulate. Agreement makes reality. When we visualize, using all five senses and lots of powerful emotions.......that is the secret of true power and creation.

Together, we can form the world we want by making positive emotional pictures in agreement with one another.

Thank you.

Noted...The Smile on Kona's owners face, says it all...I'm so happy for the family, I'm going to get off of here now while I have a smile on my face, and feel good about this story that has a happy ending, I don't want to take a chance to read or see anything horrible now, so I'm going to say Good Night, and go to bed feeling good for a change...Thanks Barb!!!

So glad that adorable Kona was returned to her loving family! But, tragically there are so many that aren't! That is why people must be vigilant at all times and never leave their dog alone- not even for a minute- for leaving your dog alone without your supervision in any situation is an invitation to a thief!
