Creature Thoughts, March 2020: The Old Ones

Senior pets bring certain challenges into our lives, but the joys they provide far outweigh the worries. They are true, and they are faithful. They know us through and through. Their old eyes look right into our souls, and can see the love we have for them in our hearts. They listen to our troubles, and understand our very natures. They have grown not only to be eternally beside us, but to be a part of us. They have helped, in their twelve or fifteen or eighteen years of companionship, to make us who we are.

By 5:30 PM, when many people haven’t even had their supper yet, it’s already night in my little section of the Universe. The horses are in the barn, the wild birds have tucked themselves into the trees, and the beings who hunt at dawn and dusk are beginning to prowl.

Creature Thoughts Oct. 2019: Our Birds are in Trouble

Everyone knows I love birds. I’ve been a bird-watcher since early childhood. Some of my favorite early memories involve lying in my Aunt Sis’s hammock as she taught me all about the birds that visited her feeders.
