From Flannigan: “For me, what I feel is that life is like a big carnival. There are so many things to do and so much to experience. And you can decide to sit around and watch others move about in life or you can create your very own experience at any rate of speed you’d like. That is what I think is so amazing about life. I watch some of my older friends who aren’t as fast anymore in the way they move. But that doesn’t stop them from participating in life. They are actually great at life! It is good for us younger ones to pay attention to what they have done in life. I mean, really, doesn’t that make sense? If they survived all of the things that they did (and some of the cats here have some tough stories) and they survived long enough to get old, then I think they know a thing or two that could be helpful. I don’t know, it just makes sense like that to me. I am grateful for the older cats and their wisdom. Seems like a waste if we don’t learn from them.”
In an effort to help us all through the stress, fear, and challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are posting an animal message a day. (All messages through animal communicator/co-founder Dawn Hayman) The animals were each asked: What do you feel appreciation for in your life?
