From Shawnee: “I appreciate learning new things. And I most appreciate when humans recognize that I am smarter than they often think. Just because I am stubborn sometimes, and I admit that I am, doesn’t mean that I’m not smart. But if someone doesn’t take the time to get to know who I am on the inside, then I feel why should I necessarily do everything they want. Life is about working together. Co-operating. Operating together. I appreciate the compassion in the human heart, even when the human doesn’t see it for themselves. But when I meet intolerance, I meet that with great resistance. I will gladly walk with you if you tell me where it is we are going to go and invite me along. I am grateful for companionship. And this is something humans don’t understand, especially for themselves.”
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?
