It is "Be Kind to Animals Week". I think this is very important to share with you and with all of the animals.
Maybe this week we could be especially doting on our pets. Perhaps we could give them a special treat, or take them somewhere they like to go. Maybe we could spend more time with them, just petting them and talking to them.
Some things we need to remember too, are the commitments we made when we adopted our animal friend. We need to make sure they are current with their vaccinations. In addition to that, they need regular check-ups and proper diets. We need to make sure their housing and bedding is clean and safe, as well.
This week is not only for pets though. We need to be kind to all animals. We can feed the birds and put out bird baths for them. There are many organizations we can take part in or join. We can read and learn more about animals in our surrounding environment, in which we live.
Many wise words have been spoken regarding animals and their place in the world. One of my favourite quotes is by one of the wisest men of recent times. Taking into consideration all that is going on in the world, I think this is especially relevant. Mahatma Gandhi said:
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
