Veterinarians have been noticing an uptick in the number of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) cases in pet dogs and cats, which has been making news recently. Investigation into these cases has shown that in many instances, this heart condition in pets developed after contact with owners who tested positive for Covid infection.

Aesop wasn’t the first person to write animal fables. Several centuries earlier, Hesiod had written one about a hawk and a nightingale, while a poet named Archilochus penned several, including one about an eagle and a vixen, and one about a fox and a monkey. But Aesop, a writer about […]The Best Fables by Aesop Everyone Should Know — Interesting Literature
Why do we celebrate World Animal Welfare Day?
The mission of World Animal Day is “to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. Building the celebration of World Animal Day unites the animal welfare movement, mobilising it into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals.
Celebrated annually on October 4, the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
The theme for the World Animal Day 2021 is “Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet.”
World Animal Day was originated by cynologist Heinrich Zimmermann. He organized the first World Animal Day on 24 March 1925 at the Sport Palace in Berlin, Germany. Over 5,000 people attended this first event. The event was originally scheduled for 4 October, to align with the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron saint of ecology, however the venue was not available on that day. The event was moved to 4 October for the first time in 1929.Wikipedia

…Is not actually today, but on Friday the 21st. However, I do feel that Endangered Species are sometimes forgotten, especially when humans are experiencing global issues, like global viruses. There are also different dates for National campaigns in your country, so look those up some time!
This may be the saddest article I’ve read so far…Mainly because it was written at the beginning of May 2021, and actually that before you even finish reading the article, some of the animals may have gone extinct already.

I just wanted to also say that you don’t have to spend money to help endangered species either. It’s more about being aware. For example, Orangutans. Their habitats are being destroyed because the plants in their area, can create palm oil. Which is used in a LOT of products.
Every hour 300 football fields of precious remaining forest is being ploughed to the ground across South East Asia to make way for palm oil plantations. Palm oil is used in everything from snack foods to soaps.Palm Oil – The Orangutan Project
It can be just as simple as being aware of what is in each of the products you’re buying, and then deciding whether or not if that product is worth it.
One of the things that I REALLY love about Christmas is how much more people are willingly to donate or help others out. So I thought that I would post about a couple I’ve heard about or have donated too. This year and definitely more than other years, I’ve been donating. $5 dollars can make a lot of difference, especially if a lot of people do!
The first is for the animals, because who doesn’t love the animals.
The next is for the Rape Crisis Centers in Scotland. Now normally, I wouldn’t speak about just one rape crisis center. The way though the Centre was run OFF of social media by so called “concerned women”. It literally made me want to throw up. Especially when these “women” accused the Rape Centers of being on the wrong side of History. After though, people donated to them like you wouldn’t believe!
It made me believe in the GOOD in people again.
One for the children. This was actually really hard to find, because a lot of charities that support children, have come under scrutiny for not supporting anyone who doesn’t fit their “criteria”.
I’ve gone with UNICEF, mainly because I don’t *think* I’ve heard of them being bad. How terrible is that? You might need to look at your local charities for the kids. In my state, in Australia, a lot of retail stores do what is called a “Christmas Wishing Tree”. Where you can either give a gift (has to be new or not ruined), donate money, or you can donate money to buy a gift to be put under the tree.
I prefer animals over most people.
I think I was going to write more than that. Somehow though I’ve forgotten what I was originally going to write.
I will post though a lot of animals, being awesome!
“Shaun, it’s not funny” lol
I love how parents don’t warn their kids that Llama’s spit, lol
What can you break even if you don’t touch it? (yes there is a real answer to this. I’ll reveal it in the next week sometime. Still, answer how you would like – no right or wrong answer)
Is it a heart? That seems to easy! It’s a heart, isn’t it?
What’s the most useful thing you own?
I have no idea,lol…My handbag I suppose? I can put a lot of things in there. People make fun of me, whenever I get a new handbag. Others always pay me out and call my bags the “Mary Poppins” bag.
What’s The Silliest Reason You’ve Ever Gotten Into A Fight With Someone Over?
Steak. We were supposed to get Chinese food, but my brother wanted chilly steaks. I can’t eat chilli, never have. Anyways, because he’s the Prince, we had to have the steak. I was struggling to eat it, because I can’t eat chilli…BOTH my mum and my brother called me fake! So I said “Yes, I’m fake. I have, in fact, been able to eat chilli my whole life. When I was born I said to myself that I’m going to fake my whole life, not being able to eat chilli, just for this moment”. Everyone made sure he was okay -.-
If You Were A Snake, How Long Would You Want To Be? No, size does not matter. 😛
I would want to be a long python. Probably because I’m short and they are long,lol.
Gratitude and/or uplifting? Please share. We can all use some of those.

In your opinion what animal is the most majestic?
This is such a hard question bring down to one. There are so many different ways an animal is majestic. I think that the Giraffe, is long, elegant and lean. When you see a huge elephant tusker walk, that is majestic. A lion’s mane can be majestic when they are well taken care of. HOW DO YOU CHOOSE!lol…The coat of a melanistic colour variant of any Panthera, particularly of the leopard. I’m going to go with a black panther…
What seemingly innocent question makes you think “It’s a trap!”?
“What do you think”…lol…Because as soon as you don’t say what they want you to say, that’s it. Especially at the moment! Then when you don’t say that they want to hear, they try to have a go at you, and that it was just their opinion, don’t attack them…blah blah blah,lol
What weird potato chip flavor that doesn’t exist would you like to try? (NOTE: Potato chips are called ‘crisps’ over the pond in the UK and Europe, I think. Thanks to Sandmanjazz for reminding me we all don’t speak the same English! 😆 )
Hmm…I can’t think of any, I like all the flavours I’ve tried. I wonder if they could put together lightly salted chips and chocolate, as a flavour though. Not a chip covered in chocolate, but just the flavour. I just love chocolate and lightly salted chips/crisps/fries.
