Most of us will trust an animal’s instincts when it doesn’t like someone. We recognize that for the animal not to like them, there has to be something wrong with this person. It is similar to when we see a person who does not like animals. We still don’t trust the person. Animals are much smarter than we give them credit for but they still can’t always take care of themselves when needed.
The winter is approaching and with this change of season, there is less food available for animals to eat outside. The grass and leaves aren’t growing any longer, fruit and vegetables are not coming out of the ground or sprouting on the trees, and many animals are going into hibernation. However, there are those animals that do not go into hibernation as the snow and temperature fall. Help them out by placing food and water where they can get to it. It could save their lives. Plus, there is a good chance they will form some sort of relationship with you.
There are times when an animal will need shelter. You don’t have to welcome a stray in your home or anything like that, but by allowing them to stay in a dog house or in a shed or something could keep them out of the harmful weather conditions that spring up over time.
It breaks all of our hearts when we see an animal that has been hit by a car and is laying on the side of the road. We drive by and feel horrible about it. But you can do much more for these animals other than feeling bad for them. You can stop the car, check and see if it is still alive, and then bring it to an animal-care center. So many of us feel like we have good hearts, but we have to do more to show it. If that was your dog or cat on the side of the highway, you would wish that someone would stop to help. If your pet was to get loose and run around the neighborhood, you would like an individual to get a hold of your animal and keep them safe. We are the keepers of this world, and if we are not showing love to the less fortunate, then we are doing a terrible job at it.
