“Living with animals can be a wonderful experience,

Especially if we choose to learn the valuable lessons they teach.”


Richard H. Pitcairn


Music: You’ve Got A Friend In Me,

By Randy Newman


Our animals always teach me something

They seem more compassionate than us

Each new orphan that we now take in

Soon finds a friend that they can trust


Perhaps, it’s because they were homeless

All cast-a-ways, from the mean city streets

Each of them, quickly finds a special friend

They form bonds, which are lasting and sweet


I rescued Valentina from a factory parking lot

She was all alone, and she was so very afraid

Now, she’s taken little Buttons under her wing

And, she comforts this little orphan, every day


When young Buttons cannot find her, she panics

And Valentina quickly rushes over, to comfort her

Valentina is a wonderful role model for Big Sisters

Soon, with her Big Sister by her side, Buttons purrs


And, our felines are not our only compassionate Critter Sitters

Our huge Turbo Dog has already adopted tiny, pregnant, Lupita

He follows after her, and he watches over her, out in our backyard

He has made it his mission to keep her safe, which fills me with awe


Our animals always teach me something,

They seem more compassionate than us;

Each new orphan that we now take in,

Soon finds a friend that they can trust.

Animals love you bro pee wee, they know you return their feelings! Love the pic and poem and the way you inspire others to be good to animals,too! One of my best pets ever was a cat I named stray ,because she wasn't mine and yet I had her with me most every day for a few hours . she loved to sit on my feet on the porch,and just snuggle;-)sis tl...

Animals are not only kinder, they're smarter, well except for you. Patrick

Misery is a human quality God did not ingratiate animals with by their own choice, but by ours. Look at the Gulf of Mexico after BP.

This is a wonderful tale of a poem.
Yes, they seem to know more about goodness and perhaps even about wisdom. And so often they know the right thing to do ~

Now if only your animals can teach you not to smoke, drink and lay around watching the tube...that would be something to see...;-) ed
