Animals Love Better Than Humans Do

Even after all years of evolution, one thing remains true: animals love better than humans do. We think ourselves at the top of the food chain. However, the animal kingdom still surpasses us in many ways. These wonderful creatures which many of us do not appreciate enough can teach us so much.

Can an animal really love better than a person does? What about the way your dog, cat or other pet acts? Do animals have the ability to feel, care for us and have emotions?

Not only animals love us but they have the capacity to have feelings and also express their affection for one another. Although they may convey it in different ways, the aspect of love is pretty obvious when you take a look at them. The bond they create shows evidence that they can experience many of the same emotions humans do.

But so many people are still cruel and insensitive towards animals and greedily destroy their lives or habitat. Yet, most wildlife will usually leave us alone. I am not a people hater, but needless to say, I often prefer the company of animals. And to me, it is a pity that humans do not act more like them.

“There are more dangerous humans on earth than dangerous animals.” – Anthony Douglas Williams

Animals Love Better

Animals love you unconditionally no matter what; surely when it comes down to our pets! No matter how you may feel at the moment, your animal is always there for you. Regardless of your physical appearance or mood, they are and will always love you.

So, animals often care more than humans. They have more personality, integrity, empathy, and loyalty than most people I know. And that is what family is really all about, isn’t it? Our pets have no greed, no malice, just love to give. And then we call them the animals.

And yes, for me, it is simply more comfortable to be around animals than to be around people. Let me ask you this: “How many persons in your life caused you to feel disappointment and betrayal? I can recall so many, but I rarely felt that way with an animal. Thus, animals love you in a truer manner.

“If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.” – James H.

Learn Life from Animals

One of the things I like most about animals is how much I learn about life from them every day. You can never know absolutely everything about any single creature on earth. Animals have infinite and immeasurable qualities. They are an endless yet enjoyable miracle of nature. On the other hand, sadly enough, you can know more about some people who you want to, just under a few minutes.

Since early childhood, I love and respect animals. They are never deceitful, insincere, cunning, manipulative, or mischievous unless they are strictly provoked or in the wild. Animals love and too frequently forgive humans for unspeakable treatment. Besides, they would never take up hunting people simply for fun, yet many individuals believe it to be a sport. It is sickening!

And animals have an incredible intuition. They can sense everything about you, from illness to your emotional state and when you are not paying attention. Dogs even know when you lie to them. So, it is no wonder that these incredible creatures are considered our best friends for the past ten thousand years.

The Bond of Eternal Love

The bond you create with animals is unbreakable, which is often not the case with humans. The more time you spend with an animal, the more of a connection is formed and that link keeps growing with time. And this bond you share becomes so rewarding and shows you that animals love better than humans do.

The unconditional affection you experience becomes worthwhile as you understand the animal’s personality, feelings, actions, desire, and motivation. You can even sense whether they are sad, happy, angry or annoyed. If you have a pet, you know that the bonds you create with them are the most unforgettable.

My trust in animals and love for them frequently helps me in my interactions with humans. It is my duty as an animal lover to honor their indestructible affection and express my gratitude to them. They are an important part of the world and they are not made for our pleasure only.

Animals and Humans

Animals deserve our respect and admiration. They are a peaceful company, do not talk incessantly, nor offer unwelcome advice or even worse, tell us what to do. Besides, they do not suddenly have to text someone or get a call while you are out together.

And these wonderful creatures bring us comfort during unhappy times in our lives. It does not matter if you are going through rough periods or are experiencing stressful moments. You know they always bring you joy or a smile. Just knowing animals love you and are always there to welcome you when you come home, making life much easier and happier.

Besides, I am not the only person in rating animals over humans, especially when it comes to showing compassion and rescuing them. A study shows people feel more empathy towards a hurt animal or abandoned puppy than for a grown-up human. Most of us are hard-wired to care more about animals and infants, and wanting to step in.

Animals Love More than You Deserve

“I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.” – Abraham Lincoln

One of the best feelings you know, if you have an animal, is when you come home. It does not matter if you left for fifteen minutes; your pet is just thrilled to see you home. Your animals are always waiting for you. There is no doubt that their world revolves around you but your world would not be the same without their love.

And so, it has been scientifically proven that animals love and make humans happier and healthier. Knowing that they are always there for you through the good and bad times means so much, doesn’t it?

There is no doubt in my mind that animals love better than humans do. You and I can learn so much from them. Yet, their unconditional love is something we can only try to rival with and emulate. So, be always kind to animals because they love you more than you deserve and more than humans will ever do.

The City In The Wild

Unimaginably Nairobi city,the capital of Kenya is the only city in the world set within the environs of a Game park. No where else in the world will you find herds of Giraffes,prides of lions and rhino families,living in the wild just 15 minutes from a major capital city.The wild animals graze and hunt with the city’s infrastructure in the background. It is such an unnatural mix that it gives unimaginable photo moments. The Nairobi National Park was the country’s first park from the middle of the last century.

The park covers an area of about 117 kilometers squared full of open grasslands.To the west there is a dry forest and a permanent river.To the south you have a river and rain forest. The parks natural landscape is teeming with stretches of broken bush country and deep rocky valleys and gorges with scrub and long grass.Mans impact is limited in the parks biodiversity only if it contributes to the flora and fauna.

The is an animal orphanage within the National park run by the Wildlife services of Kenya.This orphanage is a sanctuary for young animals that have lost their mothers at the hands of poachers.They are looked after here and reintegrated into the wild in the adjacent park.

The park does not have any hotels within, due to its proximity to the city which is full of hotels of any class.

In all the rugged terrain the view of the city is always in the horizon giving you the satisfaction that you will be rested in the comfort of civilisation at the end of the day.

Is There Anything Good About Skunks?

Isn’t it odd that while many people find skunks to be a nuisance and would like to get rid of them, they continue to be a cute little skunk to others? Many kids would jump at the chance to have their own pet skunk. Despite their odor, you may hear children crying “Oh, can I keep it?” and believe you me, they would do just about anything to have one as a pet. While skunks may be very cute, they are still wild animals and I would not recommend they be kept as pets. If your child loves skunks, you will want to stick with a tamer plush pet.

Many people would find it ridiculous, but these animals have a whole lot of advantages that you might like to think about. So next time you are wondering of how on earth you can rid your yard of that white striped animal, try thinking of how you may reap the benefits from their presence.

Did you know that they kill those pesky household rodents and insects? These mammals will help keep down the number of rodents like; mice, shrews, and moles around your house. Other animals they eat include frogs, snakes, and lizards.

The most commonly found skunk in the United States is about the size of a house cat. It has long black fur with 1 or 2 white stripes running down its back and tail. If you live in New Mexico, Texas or Arizona you may see the hog nosed or hooded skunk.

Skunks are active after dark, so you might not see any during the day even in areas where they are populated. They like to hide in protected places like in wood stacks, dens and burrows.They usually mate in January, with the female getting rather aggressive and spraying that smelly liquid as a defense mechanism to chase away the males. The mother skunk will then have up to 10 offspring in May or June. The new babies will remain hidden in the den for about 2 months and then they will begin following their mother out to hunt for food.

The problems between man and the animal come in when these animals start coming into human interests.This conflict really goes to new heights when the animal takes shelter inside homes spraying the home owners. Sometimes pets are sprayed with the smelly liquid during a confrontation. Sometimes the pet gets bitten. These animals can also be destructive to gardens and lawns through digging. They tend to uproot plants as they search for food and grub together with other insects. They are also known to eat the eggs of ground laying birds, this includes chicken eggs.

In California, they are rated the highest carriers of rabies, ticks and fleas. Rabies can be fatal to mammals including humans. So if you have found a family of skunks around your home, you need to know how to protect yourself and your pets.

If you don’t want skunks around then, discourage skunks from even considering to take up residence around your area.To make your yard less desirable to skunks, make sure you keep all pet food and garbage locked up then remove any hiding places. Since what attracts these animals in residential areas is food, water and hiding places, reducing or removing these items can deter them from coming in or taking up residence. Unused water bowls, pet food and covering garbage cans can be effective in reducing their presence.

There are humane ways to trap these animals if you feel they have become too much of a nuisance or are possibly putting your family in danger. The best way to protect or prepare for coming in contact with any wild animal is to educate yourself about that particular species.

How To Keep Deer From Eating Our Beloved Garden Plants

Although we all like to see animals cavorting around in their natural habitat, what we cannot stand is to see them making a meal out of our favorite shrubs and bushes in the back yard. Indeed, all that hard work of ours can be laid to waste in just a matter of minutes if we do not guard against it. Other than putting up ten foot fences, which would make the place, look like a prison, we can do something to avert wild animals from having a free meal. Deer repellent is one answer, along with deer repellent plants which put off these beautiful animals and encourage them to eat supper somewhere else.

The first sign that the wild animal population is becoming a little too much is the amount of road kill that is seen around the property. Only when animals have to search for easy food off their normal hunting grounds do man and beast come into conflict. If more dead animals are spotted it is obvious that their food supply is not enough to sustain them wherever they normally live. It is this human/animal conflict then that brings about the need to be prepared for all eventualities.

What the avid gardener must do, if his prized specimens are to survive, is to ensure that the animal does not find the garden enticing. Sprays are the easiest way to make sure that any foliage tastes bad. Once the animal has tried a few times to come in for a nibble and found that nothing there is suitable, they usually wander off in search of more tasty forage somewhere else.

These sprays stay on leaves and foliage over some time and even the rain does not wash it off. This means that regular spraying will keep the animals at bay quite successfully. However, when the spraying is missed or forgotten, these crafty creatures will cotton on very fast so be careful when the spraying is to be done etc.

Although the sprays work quite well, most people want a lasting solution so that they do not have to keep messing with chemicals etc. For these people, putting in an electric fence may be the answer. This can be done in one of two ways for sure. Either a continuous fence can be put in around the garden which gives off small shocks to animals brushing against it, or there are electric posts which can be scattered around in the grass so that the same thing happens once the animal comes into contact with it.

Although some people have put in motion sensors which set off lights and radios when animals come into view, these can upset neighbors in quiet areas so some thought has to go into the right method of deterrence. The animals also get used to this disturbance when they see that nothing else happens after the sudden noise and light and they will quickly learn to ignore the nuisance and get on with eating! Indeed, keeping them out of the garden becomes an obsession for some so take care to do research to hold back nature as much as possible.

Wildlife Photography

Those of us who love watching wild animals have a tendency to capture them in photos and this in itself is a great form of art that forms a large part of our picture collections. The photos are a good thing to use on post cards that we send to people when we want to send season or greeting cards.

Wildlife photography is the name given to this art that refers to taking photo shoots of real and live animals in the wild or in game parks. In a way, it connects us with and brings us closer to nature in a way that can only be termed as mysterious. With the invention of the modern-day digital cameras, it is actually easier and more fascinating to capture the wild animals in pictures.

Wildlife photography may not be as easy as this extract may seem to put it. It requires extra caution especially when dealing with large carnivores. You do not want to end up being the center of the photos as journalists take your photos as they report that you were killed by these fierce animals as you did your photo shoots. You will need good skills too if you are to produce quality work. Though necessary, good skills combined with good equipment will ensure success in your photo shooting.

There is so much opportunity in wildlife photography for capturing some very good pictures. Do not get upset when you lose a god shoot because the animals will never stand still waiting for you to take pictures. In any case you are an intruder to you and they may just want to speed you off. Patience pays.

The Importance of Wildlife Exclusion

When the autumn air grows crisp and cold, we love the cozy feeling of warming up in our homes. Unsurprisingly, all of the wildlife that is living around our houses tends to feel exactly the same way about our nice, warm shelters. Though these little critters can be cute to see in their natural habitats, it can be dangerous for them to try to make their homes indoors, so every precaution should be taken to keep them out. Keep your wildlife in the wild by establishing your own wildlife exclusion system to protect your family and home.

Potential Dangers

Depending on what type of wildlife happens to live in your region, there are many different risks of having a home that is susceptible to wild animals moving in. One very common type of pest issue is when squirrels attempt to make their nests in attics. This can lead to unbelievable amounts of destruction, as they will use whatever they can find, which often means your insulation, to build cozy little beds. They also have the very dangerous habit of chewing on electrical wires, which in certain cases has been known to start house fires. Other animals that would love to make their homes inside your house include opossums, raccoons, rats, bats, flying squirrels, and a whole host of others. Each brings their own potential risks, including diseases transmitted by bites or fleas, destructive damage to your home, or attacks against your children or pets.

Ways To Protect Your Home

Some of the ways to protect your home will be quite intuitive, such as sealing up any openings where animals might make their way in and avoiding leaving out enticing treats, like pet food. However, to be sure that you are fully secured you should first seek the advice of professionals with experience in dealing with wildlife that know how they are likely to attempt to intrude.

Evaluate Your Risk

The best way to ensure that your home is protected is to start by consulting the experts. Because an inexperienced eye may have trouble identifying potential risk factors, your first move should be to hire a professional wildlife exclusion team. They can come and inspect your home properly, evaluating possible problem areas and implementing steps towards eliminating these problems. Another bonus is that they will be able to offer invaluable tips on how you can prevent pest invasions that go beyond exclusion techniques, like certain behaviors that might leave you more at risk (a simple example of this may be things like leaving food out, or not securing your trash cans). Be sure to have this service done well before the weather gets cold. It is much easier to prevent a problem like wildlife moving into your home than it is to remove them once they are already there.

Pros and Cons of Zoos

There are many opinions on animals in captivity. Many people think that keeping animals in captivity is abusive and that we should not use these animals for our entertainment. This is true, animals should not be held in these cages. Other people think we are saving these animals because they are rehabilitating these animals and if they were in the wild they would die. Both of these opinions are true. With zoos there is no black and white, it is grey.

Many animal activists believe that the cons outweigh the pros when it comes to zoos. Doris Lin speaks on the standpoint of animal rights activists when saying a con about zoos is “we do not have a right to breed, capture and confine other animals, even if they are endangered. Being a member of the endangered species does not mean they have fewer rights.” This is quite true, God did not intend for animals to be put in cages. Some animals are bred in captivity and only know life caged and never have seen the wild. These animals that are held in captivity have high stress levels and suffer from boredom and confinement.

Breeding animals in captivity leads to a huge surplus of animals and this can lead to animals being sold to other zoos, circuses, and can even be slaughtered. Most programs that breed animals do not release the animals back into the wild, they are left in the zoo system. On the topic of whales being in captivity Naomi Rose speaks against it. Orcas in the wild have a longer life expectancy than those in captivity. Orcas that live in the wild have a life expectancy for females live up to 80-90 years and males 60-70 years. For orcas in captivity both male and females live up to their early 20s and maybe even late teens. Sea World has lost 26 orcas in the past 29 years. That is a considerable amount of orca deaths. When these orcas are in these pools their aggression levels and stress levels are high. There have been 4 deaths of whale trainers. As we can see orcas should not be held in captivity.

On the other hand there are some pros to zoos. Zoos bring people together and teach the public about endangered animals. This can be a great thing for a community. Zoos also help endangered species by giving them a safer home and breeding them because in the wild it may be hard for them to find a mate. “Zoos benefit conservation not only through direct efforts such as captive breeding, wild survival training and reintroduction but also in indirect ways (Aziz).” Almost 50 percent of people live in areas where disconnected from nature. So in these cities zoos and aquariums enrich the lives of the citizens and make them want to preserve animal life. “Research on captive animals increases knowledge of animal biology, genetics, behavior, interactions, food habits etc (Aziz).” These are all very good pros for zoos but, we see that there are a lot more cons.

Here are both the pros and cons for zoos. Ultimately we all have our own opinions about the effectiveness of zoos. After we see all the facts about zoos we see the grey areas. Zoos do a lot more harm than good when it comes to these wild animals. Animals deserve to live their lives free not in cadges for our entertainment.

The Unconditional Love Of An Animal

There is nothing on this planet like the unconditional love of an animal. The positive effects, animals have on most people are beyond words. They offer us moral support and a welcome soothing when life may get hard or uncomfortable. Always at our side, their affection transcends any boundaries.

How can such powerful love affect us? Why are some of them showing such unrestricted affection? Are all animals capable of loving? And what makes it so unique to us, human beings?

Well, at first hand, an animal can provide unconditional love, hugs, and kisses for many people who never received affection their whole lives. Animals even help you live longer. Their life can heal yours. And there are proofs of this statement all over the world. It comes to no surprise to me that a scientific study proved, what many have known all along: animals are capable of great acts of love.

And all of us had the experience of the emotional, sentimental, and almost gravitational pull of an animal’s touch. It is an incredible feeling to play with a dog, cuddle with a cat, ride a horse or bond with a bird. Even watching a video about a wild animal getting her young out of a sticky situation touches us. So, animals have an extraordinary healing power that goes beyond what we can imagine.

Let’s Care More

Most of you know the love an animal can have. You know the feeling. It is the touch of a wet nose rubbing your face or the sound of a concerned whimper when you are sad. Or it is also the jump on your laps or the absolute happiness when they see you. But it is even more profound when you look into their wide and compassionate eyes. They then seem to understand you on the deepest level.

So, if you are an animal lover, you already know it to be true. Animals are capable of deep, unconditional love that is way beyond what you and I can feel. Yet, there is a cliché linked to animals waiting for adoption in shelters across the world. It looks, for many of you, that you believe an animal in a shelter is there just because it is undesirable or broken in some way.

But nothing is further from the truth. It is a fact that only five out of every ten animals in shelters never leave alive. In my life, I saw animals that were so starved, so thin, so abused, so neglected. Those are the ones who have seen the absolute worst of humanity. And yet somehow, they find the strength to live; not only to live but to forgive, trust and give unconditional love once again.

The Unconditional Love of an Animal

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress is judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Some scientific studies show that animals feel love in the same way people do; through a chemical process. When you hold an animal, like your pet, your cat, dog, horse and many other creatures of the animal kingdom, something magical happens. It releases the same hormones that you do when you are in love.

As a result, there is really no love like the unconditional love of an animal. An innocent creature, which is not of the same species, decides to snuggle with you when you feel sad or play with you when you are in a bad mood. And sometimes they even give their own life to protect you. They do not have to do it, yet they still do. Animals know that you are unique to them and very often, you are their whole world. So be always kind!

The Magic of Loving an Animal

I do love all animals. They are beautiful creatures that deserve their place in this world. And I realized that loving an animal changes a person’s life as well as mine. Whether they are an army, service, therapy, farm, wild animal, or just your pet, the love you have for them is unique. But the extraordinary love you receive back is one of the purest feelings on this planet.

When I was growing up, I was one of those children that would bring abandoned, hurt or lost animals of the street. I would come back home with them. My mother’s answer was often no. So, being a rebellious child, I would take them anyway to our horse barn. And then take care of them there until they recover. However, the older I got, the more I began to realize the cruelty and abuse animals were enduring, and it hurt.

Of course, I wanted to do my part to help these poor innocent souls. So I began to work with them before and after school, and during the summer also. But throughout my life, I drifted back and forth. I worked as a zookeeper for big cats in Colorado. And I then got a job as an assistant surgeon for a veterinarian. But it was not for me. Now, their unconditional love took over again, and I am back.

The Motives of Unconditional Love

Surely, you heard a wolf howl longing to the moon, but do you know why? Wolves cry out from sorrow when they miss an absent member of their pack. Some dogs will not leave the side of their owner’s grave. Did you ever see your pet yawn also when you do? Well, it is meant to be a sign of adoration for you, its owner.

And what is it when your cat relaxes lazily in a sunny spot of the house, makes eye contact with you across the room and then blinks gently? In cat body language, a slow, deliberate blink means an expression of total trust, vulnerability, and friendliness. Otters hold hands while they sleep and rest, to prevent clans from losing each other. Rats have been known to free other rats from their cages.

Elephants also possess unconditional love. They are emotional creatures and show compelling acts of affection when, for example, grieving for a lost loved one. Some even die of broken hearts after the death of another. These gentle souls stand over the remains, weeping for several minutes to numerous days. They will also go so far as to bury the bodies under leaves. And those are not the only animals that show incredible feelings and cleverness.

The Human and Animal Worlds

The separation between the human and animal worlds is not as extensive as you might think. Animals hold such wisdom and power. And when we interact with them, they often sooth our pain and problems that we feel are all too overwhelming.

Therefore, the most magical aspect of your human-animal connection is this unspoken language that you share with them. It fosters trust and affection that never wavers or fades. Studies show that petting and spending time with an animal inevitably decreases the levels of stress running through your body.

So, the more affection, care, and attention that you give to an animal or pet, the more you receive a lot of devotion in response. As a result, there is nothing that equals the unconditional love of an animal. And I believe that we have a lot to learn from them.

It Is Unconditional Love

Seriously now, who else will accept you just as you are? Who else will welcome you, no matter what your circumstances? Where will you be greeted with such eagerness, the moment you step through the door?

You and I can always try our best to give such type of love to our partners, friends, and family members, but with little success. In this world, no one else can drop everything on the spot and shower you with worship and adoration the way that an animal does. They are truly special angels we should cherish.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”- Anatole France

Since they do give us unconditional love until the day that they die and even after, think to pet, talk and spoil animals with adoration as much as you can. Tell them how much you love them. Remember that their unreserved affection for you is a special bond of nature, even if you are soul mates of a different type!
