I am a firm believer in spaying and neutering. There are several reasons for this. First I do think the world is already overpopulated. People who get a pet dog or cat and just let them run loose have contributed to the problem of pets starving to death, or attacking other pets and people. I am also a firm believer that if I take responsibility for an animal's life, I must do my best for that animal. It's not like they can do anything to make their existence better. Only we humans can do that.
I have watched Animal Cops, etc. I am amazed at the horrible treatment that they receive. I often look at the people who go to court to get their animals back and wonder what were they thinking. I find myself looking at horses where every bone shows and wonder how they could be 200 pounds underweight and no one noticed. There is no excuse.
Just when non animal lovers say, loudly, but what about humans being treated poorly. And I agree with them. No one has the right to beat, starve, kill, injure, or in other ways damage another person no matter what the age. I believe this with all my heart. And I have no respect for anyone who thinks they are better than or more important than anyone else.
But I need to get out more. I dreamed about a serial killer the other night. I have watched every Criminal Minds show and most of the true crime shows. I have doted on the CSI shows. I have been reading vampire books, true crime books, and crime novels. I heard or read somewhere that what you put into your mind determines how you live your life. And it makes sense. I've been putting crime against humans and animals into my mind daily. It's no wonder I'm dreaming about serial killers.
I am going to the mall today. Not to shop. Since my surgery I need to get out more. And I need to watch people. Regular people who aren't commiting crimes. And kids with their families. I need to see pretty Spring colors. I need to be able to walk some and to find a place to sit when I need to. So to the mall. I don't mean to hide my head in the sand. But I must find a happy medium. So pre-Easter shoppers will provide some good vibes.
Happy Easter to all.
