Purrrfect Place for a Cat

Our weekly pet story takes us to special house.  This house is being customized by Greg Krueger for his pets.  His special pet cats. He has created many overhead catwalks and passageways.  He says he just loves trails and paths.  That is why he has been working on this for the last 15 years.  He has Aspergers Syndrome.  His passion and his condition work together to bring him joy in continually creating this home for his cats.  He puts a very detailed craftsmanship into this passion.  He relates to his cats and they to him.  It is wonderful to see a man enjoy his pets so much that he will spend so much time to make their home a special one.  People like Greg may not relate to other people as well as they do to pets.  After all how many people think of their pets as another member of their family.  He says he may just never finish. He keeps thinking of new things to add.  I am so glad that Greg has his cats.  Everyone needs something to care for.  Do you know someone who needs a pet to share their love?  Tell them about Greg and his cats.  Visit a local shelter and take a pet home.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

See What This Dog Does to Some Kittens

Today is Friday and we haven’t had a “Pet Post of the Week” yet.  So, that is what today is!  Thank you to Karen D. for sending this to us.  It is about a dog named Lily.  Lily was a dog that was abandoned by its owner (possibly when they found out she was pregnant).  She is a lab mixed with some other dog breed(s).  She was taken into the Humane Society Adoption Center.  After giving birth to her 6 puppies, they were all adopted, leaving the mother dog all alone.  But, then something interesting happened.  A number of baby kittens all showed up at the Adoption Center, without their mother.  The people at the Adoption Center knew that it would be . a real challenge to feed the kittens by hand.  So, they decided to try something else, instead. They put the kittens in with the dog (Lily) and carefully see what would happen Lily INSTANTLY took the kittens and fed them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  We don’t typically think that something like this could ever happen.  Aren’t dogs and cats almost “Natural Enemies”?  So, did the “mothering” instinct override the “dog” instinct?  I guess we may never know, for sure, what happens in cases like this.  In fact, in the video, it gives some quick examples of other animals (besides dogs), where the “mothering” instinct took over to help in a time of need between different types of animals.  I guess when it comes down to it, a mother is a mother.  They seem to always have a very soft spot in their heart for babies. This is one area where people aren’t so different from dogs or other animals.  Aren’t mothers wonderful?!?!  They are the greatest of all of God’s creations!!  Thank you to a special dog named Lily.  But, more importantly, thank you to Moms everywhere.  Now, let’s all go hug our respective Moms…or, if you are too far away, give her a call and say THANK YOU and let her know we love and appreciate all she has done for us.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
