Who doesn’t love petting cats, or cuddling with an adorable kitten? These felines are a gift to my heart.
ISN’T SHE CUTE?
SOME INTERESTING FACTS:
This fluffy friend of us is a small, usually furry, domesticated, carnivorous mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
They have been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years, and are currently the most popular pet in the world. Owing to their close association with humans. They are now found almost everywhere in the world.
The writer David Derbyshire cites a 2007 CE research project in which, “the study used DNA samples from 979 wild and domestic kittens to piece together the feline family tree.
They looked for markers in mitochondrial DNA – a type of genetic material passed down from mothers to kittens which can reveal when wild and domestic ones lineages were most closely related.”
HATE IS IGNORANCE WITH FEAR — Dr. Martha A. Castro N., MD
According to data compiled in August last year, more than 14,000 cases were registered on charges of disseminating hatred speech and hatred material. Though these details are extensive, questions have surfaced about the ‘media-coated’ hatred speech which is being practised by a particular group of unscrupulous individuals.
On feeling physically threatened by hatred speech
Not only threatened. You can feel emotionally disturbed. You can feel psychic trauma, which can have physiological manifestations. You can feel silenced. These are all real harms that may be suffered by people who are subject to hatred speech that is not punishable.
Have you ever noticed that feeling of well-being after a good laugh? I have. I try to feel that way everyday. Sometimes when I’m riding my bike alone I make myself laugh remembering funny situations I might have experienced in the past. I laugh out loud, another cyclist might pass me by and notices I am having a good time. He laughs too and smiles. This happens pretty often, and I like it when people around me are happy too. It’s just right!
My “to do list” for sunday includes several goals. These actions have one purpose: to achieve happiness and continue to grow mentally and spiritually. I am planning to practice each one of them today and continue tomorrow. One day at a time! Feel free to add in the comment section your own goal/s for today, the week, etc.
Born, live, grow up (some people mentally evolve, some others “devolve” ), die, and everything we breath in between: pain, laughter, sorrow, happiness, abandonment, love. We can make it, survive and enjoy life. Then we have to get ready to move on, to change rooms, to start living in the Big Picture that awaits each on of us.
