RIP, Cecil

Standard

The killing of Cecil, the lion, just broke my heart. I know big-game hunting has been going on for years, but that doesn’t make it right. He was a cherished “pet” for many people. Someone in a group that I belong to said, “Why is everybody so upset over a lion when there are homeless people to worry about, etc.” That’s not the point! Guess I’m what she calls an animal activist. And proud of it, by the way. I would much rather live in a world that looks like this. (Without the snow.)

Dogs and cats don’t get along? That’s sometimes true. But watch this

When you think of anxiety, you think it’s a human condition. However, it also affects animals. Here is a heart-warming video of a dog and a cat showing the value of friendship

Rainbow Wall of Happiness

I guess I’m like this kitty. I just wish this world was happier. We can all contribute to that with one positive thought, one act of kindness at a time. Hope you enjoyed all the videos and pictures of animals interacting with each other. Please share your thoughts about Cecil. Till next week, thanks for reading.
