What Animals Teach us about Happiness

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

-Mahatma Gandhi

animals

I’m an animal lover. I work with animals at a shelter, volunteer my time, rescue and foster. Working with animals (specifically cats) has taught me so much. I’m proud to say that they are my inspiration.,

Over the years, I have met many different cats and dogs (other animals too!. Some from very different backgrounds-

Some abused, some sick, some abandoned, some with special needs, some who have never met a human before, Etc

These guys have taught me many things, but what they really taught me was- To be grateful and happy for everything I have. 

These animals have nothing, they’ve been abandoned, abused, will still perk up when you pet them. They get exited as soon as you open the cage door and they’re ready for love.

It amazes me that some pets, who have had it rough, will still come around to trust you. They are all amazing and individually unique.

I’ve seen cats who were once scared and huddled in the back of the cage and completely scared of people and the world, soon come out to be total love bugs.

I realized that even though that I have the ability to be happy as well, even though I’ve had it rough, just like them. I’ve become so much more grateful than I used to be, so much more nurturing. They are my biggest inspiration. I feel as if it’s a privilege to be able to rescue and help animals, a privilege I’m grateful for.

Love, Rosie
