The word "animal" comes from the Latin word animale, neuter of animalis, and is derived from anima, meaning vital breath or soul. In everyday colloquial usage, the word usually refers to non-human animals. The biological definition of the word refers to all members of the Kingdom Animalia. Therefore, when the word "animal" is used in a biological context, humans are included.Follow Me on Twitter.. https://twitter.com/AnimalSmile

In lieu with Valentines Day, NY Daily News.com published a story entitled "Cupid human trick: Furry pet is no sure bet as a Valentine's Day gift".
According to research and interviews done, most men would consider pets as gifts to their loved ones not only on V-day but also on other gift-giving celebration days. However, pets are not always the best gift. Most pets ending up in animal shelters are those unwanted by unready first time owners. The Humane Society of New York gets a lot of animals from those saying they are not ready, they just can't take the responsibility or simply, they do not just want any pets.
Some people who get pet gifts live in no-pets allowed apartment, some have allergies caused by furry animals, and some just can't afford the extra expenditures on pet food, containment, accessories, etc. This is a bad fate for pets that end up as gifts. Instead of having a comfortable home with a loving and caring pet owner that provides them petsafe products and look after their welfare, they end up in shelters on in Craiglist or ebay for sale.
Guys or girls should think first of what will happen to the pet if given as a gift. If you think they can be taken care of, then it's ok, but if you think your partner is not ready or responsible enough to parent the poor animal, then just get something else.
Mike Rubin, the store manager at Puppy Paradise in Marine Park, Brooklyn gives people something to think about: "It's not something you can return or give back to the person after a breakup," "It's almost like an engagement ring."

Read this nice and informative article from Petsafe Articles at America Outdoor. Hope the editors won't mind if I also used their title for this blog. They have reposting policies so I also included their links.
The CATchy title immediately grabbed my attention because it's very clever and creative. The article is about sleeping cats and pet beds. Cats sleep for about 13-16 hours per day. Almost 1/4 of their lives are spent on dreamland. The article offers not only useful information but also helpful suggestions on how pet owners can give their cats a good sleep in a warm and comfy resting area. It also contains some of the most sought pet beds today that any cat will surely love.

Animals have feelings..
Animals are NOT property!
Animals feel love.
Animals feel abandonment.
Animals feel hunger.
Animals feel pain.
Animals feel fear!
Respect all animals.
Animals are God's gifts to us!
Be Kind to Animals! - Jude
