Just A Little Bit

There is no excuse.. for one to give a little bit of themselves to help another living being, be it two or four legged..

What Would It Be?

It is so easy for us to get carried away with living our own lives that we forget that this world is not about us alone.

If we were all to look back at our lives and ask what is it that I have done for mankind, how have I contributed back to earth…, what would it be?

Dear Beloved Pets..

Hello Everyone..A friend of mine emailed this to me.. and I thought I just had to share this with other animal lovers out there..

However, we do not know who originally wrote this and thus we’re unable to credit the author..

Enjoy..

Dear Beloved Pets,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn’t help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort.

Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, bark, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered.

Also, I have been using the bathroom for years … canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat’s butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To return the kindness of your obedience, my dear pets, I have posted the following on our front door so visitors to our home know what the rules are here:

Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit and Like to Complain About Our Pets…

1. They live here. You don’t.

2. If you don’t want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That’s why they call it “fur”niture.)

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted children who are short, hairy and walk on all fours. Although they don’t speak clearly, they communicate extremely well, especially my cats.

5. Dogs and cats are better than kids. They eat less, don’t ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called (this does not apply to cats), never drive your car, don’t hang out with-using friends, don’t smoke or drink, don’t worry about having to buy the latest fashions, don’t wear your clothes, and don’t need a gazillion dollars for college. Also, if they get pregnant, you can sell the children!

**********************************************************************************

By the way, I DISAGREE about the part where the author implies that cats do not come when called..

She’s obviously have not met Cash!

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – Importance of Carriers

Hello Everyone..

This is what happens when you need to rescue a pair of silly strays that were STILL sitting in a drain while the sky is pouring… and do not have a pet carrier close by..

I was lucky in this case cos no doubt these two were fearful and wary but thank goodness they were also rather docile and was in shock from the pouring rain..

I can assure you.. most strays won’t just sit in a bag like these two did. It’s a 50-50 escape risk chance with a box as well. Trust me, I’d know when it comes to matters like this..

So.. a pet carrier is really the best form of transportation for an animal.. be it a feral animal or your own pet..

To all animal lovers and pet owners.. GET ONE! .. or two..

Thanks so much, everyone..

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – Frustrating Limitations

Hello Everyone..

The SCCARFS Pet Connection Project basically grew from personal care and concern for the welfare of the stray animals..

We are individuals who were already rescuing and caring for many of the stray animals that crossed our paths for many years now..

As with some of you animal lovers, we had many dreams of the world being a better place for animals..

Unfortunately, the world that we currently live in is abound with unnecessary cruelty and disregard towards animals..

So we decided to combine our resources and skills and try to reach out further to help more stray animals..

The SCCARFS Pet Connection Project currently consists of a small group of individuals.

We are not an organization nor are we an animal shelter..

Every one of us have got individual full time jobs and responsibilities.. and we juggle SCCARFS Pet Connection Project admist our personal obligations and daily routine..

The SCCARFS Pet Connection Project is personally funded.

Therefore, as much we would like to be able to help all the animals that are suffering out there.. we are not in the position to..

Thus our motto which we have been preaching repeatedly.. Do what you can when you can wherever you can..

We have received many requests to take in animals found by others..

Please know and remember.. we are experiencing the same dilemma as you.. and more..

It breaks my heart to even hear about an animal suffering but our resources are truly limited.

If we were to combine all the cats that the four of us are currently caring for, inclusive of personal pets.. the number already exceed three digits..

So you see.. it’s not that we do not want to help..

It’s because we can only do so much.. without losing our hope and sanity..

And we really have been stretching our resources over the limit..

Thank you for understanding..

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – Inquisitive Cash

Cash is psychic..

He knows where you’re going before one even start moving towards that direction..

I had a glass door installed in between the kitchen and living area.. obviously to keep the cats in one place when necessary..

So wherever and whenever I am in the kitchen area.. just as I turn my body towards the glass door to head to other parts of the house.. Cash would scramble towards the doors too.. at such high speed.. and brakes immediately right at the door, almost skidding and knocking into the glass.

And he is really smart too..

Before… he would arrive at the door but it was still possible to let myself through without letting him in at the same time..

Nowadays.. he would position himself at the door in such a way that no matter how I try to pry the door without letting him through.. he squeezes through at the slightest opening and is streaking into the other parts of the house within seconds!

Lately, he has mastered the art of opening the glass door himself! I’ll post pictures of his break-in attempts later.

I would be in my study upstairs or in the living area and I would find him mewing his arrival.. before he gallantly attempts to pull himself up my chair or onto the couch..

This is a picture of Cash being very inquisitive..

He heard something and he just HAD to check it out himself..

Cats are funny like that.. My human household members laugh so much more because of the simple humour and joy that animals bring into our lives..

You would never understand it if you do not open your life to them.. Households with no love or place for animals miss out so so much..
