I'm always surprised at the times I feel I have no more of me to give and then I see someone who needs compassion and empathy or just a simple hug because they have no one else. I'm amazed at the resilience of my heart.
What irritates you more than anything else?
Ignorant pet owners. There needs to be more education out there for people on spaying and neutering as well as general care and nutrition.
I can't stand to see a pet that's never allowed inside to be a part of the family. Dogs are not meant to be back yard decorations, and people who think that cats are too independent and therefor don't need love and contact~what rock were they born under? Animals reflect what we teach them. They really do want to please us. My heart sings when I see a happy animal and know that they landed in the right home.
How would you describe your connection with animals?
I'd have to say it's almost a spiritual connection for me. I haven't met a dog or cat that I couldn't befriend. Even the wildest ones that I couldn't pet knew I was there to help in some way. I have the patience of a saint when it comes to gaining the trust of a frightened animal.
Animals are our best friends, family members and healers. I can't imagine a world without them.
Thank you Miss KJ! This was a fun interview. xoxo
