Sky Burial For A Cat

I know it sounds kind of crazy and perhaps difficult to deal with, but is a sky burial for a cat a viable option for a cat funeral? I guess the real question here is can you handle it? For me the answer would be yes. In fact I want nothing to do with the remains of my cat or my family members for that matter. Sky Burials are such an interesting Tibetan practice. For me it ties us back to the earth such a powerful way, that other funeral practices don’t even come close to. I can recall losing my cat, to what I imagine was a fox. It was a tough experience for me, because I was away from the house during this time and working. And when I came home the cat was just gone. So without my decision Mina had been given a ‘sky burial.’ In my opinion it doesn’t matter after the animal is dead. If you give your cat a sky burial you are helping the animals in the area survive with a good meal. And there is not need to make any funeral arrangements. The down side to this decision is the torment of knowing you didn’t give your cat the traditional funeral/ memorial with dignity. But what is undignified about a sky...

Obama Family Adopts a Dog

Adopting a pet is a huge step that not only helps the family in question, but also that works to help a pet in need. Earlier this month the Obama family adopted a playmate for their Portuguese Water Dog Bo, the newest addition is named Sunny. Sunny is also a Portuguese Water Dog and has taken the little sister role for their existing pet. The Family says that adoption was an easy choice for them this time around. Rather than purchasing a puppy, the First Family decided to help a dog in need that was already full grown and that had little prospect of being adopted by someone that did not have the same specific adoption criteria as the Obamas. The dog is still a puppy in all respects but she is a far cry from the puppies that are generally bought from breeders. Sunny is a wonderful addition to the family and initial reports state that Sunny is bonding well with Bo and the Family and that she is making a place for herself alongside the Presidents daughters Sasha and Malia. When it comes to pet adoption there are a few different factors that you should first consider prior to starting the process. Taking time to consider these factors can help you decide if adoption is right for you and your needs and expectations. First off, those seeking to adopt a pet are generally looking for an older pet. Though there are frequently puppies up for adoption, generally these puppies go fast leaving older pets to fend for themselves in the big wide adoption pool. For those that...
