Prayers for Critters too

Like many of you, I am brought to tears each night as I see the horrific scenes from Haiti. The hurt, the sadness, the fear, the despair. I say prayers for them and I am grateful that people have united to help and give comfort.

At the same time I say prayers for all the critters. Being a "critter lover" and being so totally in love with my bunnies, I can't even imagine how many beautiful creatures have been killed.
So.... I have prayers for them too.... I pray the angels are holding them safe and giving them comfort.

Sadly most animals are ignored during times like that, people think "they are just animals", but their lives matter too.

Thanks for that post Shell, you're absolutely right. Yes, human disasters sadly always means there will be devastation for wildlife and pets alike. But there are some organisations trying to help. If any readers/commenters here would like to donate WSPA have an emergency on-line appeal-

Thank you all for caring

Uh I know...I can't think about it cause it's just too heart breaking...I am one of these people also who of course feels awful for the people but my heart more so worries and feels for the animals....

I remember when they brought all of the animals to our area from Katrina. They took care of them then they found them good homes.I don't know what is going to happen this time.

Thank you Shell - the animals are so important and I am sure many people are missing their best friends in Haiti.
I am also thinking about the strays, the unloved and the unwanted animals that so often frequent impoverished places and my heart goes out to them all.

Hugs to you and the bunns,
