You all are a definite 'up' to my world. There is so much wrong going on in my city, but you have taught me that the wrong that I witness isn't how everything is. Sure, we may not all agree exactly on how to care for our animals...or for our world, but I can see and feel that you genuinely care and love. Actually, without this forum, I probably wouldn't even KNOW that some of the less obvious things going on around me were wrong, and I wouldn't know to want to get away. Without all of you I might think that what I see is just what life IS. And I might accept it. I don't want to say that because I'd like to think that I'm 'better' than that, but unfortunately we as humans learn from those who come before us, and the people who come before me where I live are terrible, terrible people in many ways.
Regarding the questions asked:
My hand is fine today. No signs of infection or anything, so I think I will mend quickly. Its more of a puncture than anything, so I doubt I'll even have scarring or anything. Thank you for asking.
No, the dogs aren't owned specifically by the farm but they are owned by a 'higher up' person there and that's why they've been allowed to stay. I don't agree with it whatsoever. They had actually been banned from the farm for a while but started coming back out a few weeks ago. I can't blame the dogs though...they're dogs, and they were in a 'pack' of two. They were doing what they do. If the kitten had been allowed to stay in the tree...the dogs could not have harmed it.
I desperately want to help change the world, even if its only for one or two people, one or two animals. And as I said earlier, there is no way I could do that without all of you and my mom (who has been SO good to me, helping me with all of this. She can't solve my problems for me, but she supports me and does what she can. It means a lot to me) to help encourage and guide me. Thank you.
