Sunday Pause (Paws): For Seniors

its-sunday-aafbt

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and put a spotlight on seniors.

November is “Adopt A Senior Pet Month” and I just couldn’t let November end without doing a post. But I wanted to do a post about seniors in general.

We start off this life depending on others to care for us and we often end this life depending on this very same thing. But there is a difference. When we’re a baby we’re seen as cute and lovable. When we’re old we’re often seen as not so cute and annoying.

But aging is the circle of life. Things WILL change.

Beginning Of A New Season

We’ve had two days of light snow and very cold weather. Between the snow and cold temperatures it has been very slippery on the roads and sidewalks. Even though I am not a huge fan of summer, it’s way too soon for this. It’s only the first week of November!

Anyway, since it can’t be stopped, during this change of season let’s not forget our pets.

How about your area? Any snowfall or cold temperatures?

I hope you have a Halloween ball Continue reading

National Black Cat Day

Hello all. Happy weekend!

I have been hard at work creating images with messages about animals. If you have been following me for a while then you probably know I have been searching for the best way for me to help animals. As time goes on and changes happen in my life I find new & creative ways in doing that. In the last few years I’ve gone from being a new blogger, to finding an interest in photography, playing with photos, to the sudden loss of my sister that brought back my love for expressing myself through poetry, to creating images with messages. Whew!

Actually, if I never settle on just one of these things it’s ok…as long as I continue being a voice for animals.

I created the image below last night along with a few others for Halloween. I will share the other ones with you on Halloween or as it gets closer to Halloween (if you follow my Facebook Page you may have already seen them). Anyway, it turns out today is “National Black Cat Day.” I had no idea when I created the image…so how lucky am I?!

I may be lucky but black cats aren’t. They get a bad rap and are actually seen as bad luck with all of the superstitions out there. Seriously people….a cat is a cat is a cat. BLACK is only a color.

 

Sunday Pause (Paws): An Animal Is An Animal

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a moment to think about animals…really.

I recently read about a day created by The Anglican Society for Animals calledAnimal Welfare Sunday” which is today. It looks like they encourage churches to speak about animals and God’s intent for them.

I think this is great and I wish there were more discussions and sermons in the church about this.

“God gave us dominion over animals, but I truly believe the human race has misinterpreted this and that he, along with us, is grieving over the treatment of animals in our society.”
(A quote from my ABOUT page)

I have always loved animals. I grew up with an adorable black toy poodle and if friends or family had pets I could always be found wherever they were. But it wasn’t until I took the time to learn about how our society treats & uses other animals that I made some important lifestyle changes.

do you love animals or just pets?-aafbt
