I grew up with a dog, many cats, many many horses and an ornery rooster. When I went to college I found a cat, then another cat…then a dog…and I couldn’t just leave them in the street. I had to make sure they were taken care of, which is just my nature. I am in awe of all that nature has created and want to be surrounded by it. The miracle of nature is what balances my life. I can’t imagine one day without my friends of other species.
