  • Vicky, I will be serious for a second.Love is translated to charity .One must give to love.True love or agape love would be to give your life in order to save another.The word is taken lightly but we all need to say it more than we do. I do LOVE poking fun at you.

  • If we added up all we spend on pets and then compare what we spend on humans, it might come up even.

    Right now we have an elderly cat in the wet who got rolled over by a van. If she is able to eat and get to the litter box we will let her life in the house until her time comes. Costs so far $200.

  • mytaxesaremine: I didn't realize you could be serious - LOL but thanks for your words. I almost included the three types of love in my blog - thanks for doing it for me. I LOVE making people laugh. My motto - "better to play a fool than BE a fool".

    Steve: you are a good person!

  • May be good, but pet poor. Actually though, I wish we could do more.

  • It is also better to remain silent and let people think you a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt !!!!!!!!!!

  • Vicky:

    It's a close call between loving and controlling. The desire to control what happens in your life is very strong.

    I have pets and I try very hard to give them some freedom within the safety confines I have set up. But when I see feral animals, I have to stomp down on my desire to control their situation. They are in God's hands and he has given all animals, including humans the tools of survival.

  • Spikee - with regard to feral animals, are you speaking of what we regard as pets? If so, I can't totally agree with you. God originally made these animals with survival skills, but we have canceled out many of their instincts through breeding.

    Especially, if these animals were born in captivity and later on dumped somewhere and they became feral.

  • Wildwoman-I have no tolerance for anyone who would dump a domesticated animal. All of mine were just that. If you can't take care of it, don't have it. If you must give it up, take the responsibility to try and find it a home. There are many that do, but the majority just don't seem to care. Just look at how many land up in pounds.

    Just like schools, you can provide the tools of education, but you can't make them learn. Too bad it will require some kind of law enforcement to get people to do right.

  • Isn't that the truth? And having more laws doesn't always work, because they are often not enforced.
