Howdy! I'm Ila. I luv animals & nature, & I'm an avid animal & human rights activist. I'm esp. interested in protection for wild horses, timber wolves, & baby harp seals. I am happily married & have 3 wonderful animal family members:  a dawggie & 2 ratties. Rats are great pets, incidentally. They're amazingly smart, & actually very clean. Keeping their living environment clean & comfortable for them are extremely important factors in ensuring that they stay healthy & promoting longevity.
I volunteer at a local horse sanctuary & help care for horses with special issues. I work with some of the more difficult-to-handle ones & I can relate to some of their stories. They trust me because they know I love them & I will not harm them.

Wild Fact About Me I sometimes transform myself into a human raccoon at about oh, er, I'd say... 11:30 pm - 12:00 am. Re: frig raids.
My Philosophy If you become a human raccoon with a midnight snack craving - esp. if for sweets - please take this advice: DO NOT - REPEAT - DO NOT CONSUME A CAN OF CAKE FROSTING (OR EVEN PART OF ONE)!!!!
What Gives Me Hope Faith & love.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Establish a national good, solid, basic health plan for all, plus one for... PETS! And esp. for loving & responsible but poor pet owners. I would also & equally important place a cap on oil prices, thus gasoline prices, & establish a committee to work with indiv. governors & politicians of ea. state to motivate companies to find alternative green fuel sources that would be safe, as well as more affordable for folks. I'd have caps put on housing prices & rental costs as well. These are ridiculous, esp. in CA. This is just the tip of the iceberg as to what all I'd try to do.
