Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month

Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month comes to an end this week. Did you wear orange, the official color, to raise awareness?

Actually, I don't believe Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month should ever end. That's basically what this blog is about. "With understanding comes acceptance and peace." "What you know, you will not destroy." I'm hoping to accomplish an end to cruelty to animals, by trying to end the terrible, untrue myths and misconceptions about them.

I honestly don't know if wearing orange does any good to achieve that goal. On the one hand, I'm sure that if I said "pink", you'd know what you're supposed to be aware of. But does mere awareness of the cause actually do any good?

Caring for a big cat is an expensive task. Or you could buy them a toy, like maybe a boomer ball (check with the sanctuary first to see what they need and approve of). While the tigers receive the best of care in a sanctuary, there sometimes isn't a whole lot for them to do. A toy can brighten up their day.photo from votk.org
