I say that I have the best daughter in the world because she is always willing to help out an animal in need. Many times she goes above and beyond to help them.
Tonight we drove by an area where a house was torn down that used to have a lot of cats running around and sleeping on the porch. The house was torn down a few weeks ago and I stupidly thought that whoever had lived there must have made arrangements for the cats. Whether it was the person who used to live there or the person in charge of that person or whoever, they did not. We discovered the cats there this evening. She drove right to the store and bought cat food and a water bowl for them.
We went back and they all ran into the woods that surround the house. To our surprise we found that someone had been leaving food for them. Then we walked around behind a big tree into a nice little shaded spot and there was a lot of old empty food containers and cat food bags. It looked as if someone was trying to keep them fed and watered. We did wonder if a homeless person might have been staying there also. It was getting dark so we couldn’t really get a good look behind the hedge of trees and bushes.
Tomorrow I will call our No-Kill shelter and pray that they will for once have room for animal that I call about! At least we know they have enough food and some water.
So I have to say it again, I have the best daughter in the world! She is an animal hero.

The Heart and the Fist by Eric Greitens is a most interesting and inspiring book. This guy is a great man among men. He has truly lived an adventurous, interesting and giving life.
He has traveled to many refugee camps helping out as much as possible. He was a Rhodes Scholar who became a Navy Seal. This is one good man.
His easy going style of writing makes one feel as if they are sitting down for coffee with a best friend whilst they tell the story of their charitable and unique world adventures.
This book would be a wonderful gift for an older teen interested in humanitarian work and to inspire those who aren’t moving in that direction or for any guy considering joining the Navy Seals Team.

My good neighbor saw the kitty with the cup on it’s head in the parking lot across the street. The little one that we tried to save at the beginning of the week and we were unsuccessful. He noticed the kitten was getting weaker and thought we would have a better chance to help it so we gave it another try and Voila! He caught it and got the cup off! Yahoo! An animal hero! The kitty is in my kitty carrier cage with food and water sitting in the shade until I can take it to0 either the vet or our no-kill shelter in the morning.

There are still some heroes around! If you take your time to help an animal that is in distress then you are a hero. A few nights ago a man heard a dog yelping desperately in the distance. It was late in the evening and bitterly cold outside but this wonderful man took the time to go out and see what might be wrong. He had to go quite a ways into the but he found a dog stuck up to its face in the mud and water of a freezing creek. Emergency crews had to be called in to help remove the dog. unbeknownst to them all at the time was the fact that this poor creature was blind and deaf. My heart sings with joy that this man was kind enough to take the time and go see what some yelping in the distance was about. He was willing to be an instrument of God. How many of us are willing to take time to notice what is really going on around us and step out of our selflessness to help another in distress? We all need to slow down and be willing to listen and then respond if the call comes. It takes a village to raise all of us.
