In memory of MH17

It has been five days of shock, disbelief and utmost sadness for Malaysians and everyone who have lost loved ones on board MH17.

As the remains of all lives lost begin their journey back to their homeland today, we stand in solidarity with their families and friends and pray for peace, strength and serenity for all who are deeply affected by this tragic loss.

We also remember the animals who were on board the ill-fated plane – a St Bernard and many macaws.

May all lives lost be in a good place now, free from pain and suffering.

We salute all the brave crew and cabin members of our national carrier, MAS, and give them our fullest support in this difficult and sorrowful time as they mourn the loss of their colleagues and yet continue to carry our flag high in the skies with courage, dignity and a deep commitment to duty.

To all who have lost loved ones on board MH17, we express our deepest and heartfelt condolences. May time heal your pain and sorrow.

May loving memories of your loved ones bring closure to the sadness and in its place, peace and serenity to carry on.

Dear Dr. Chan,

It’s me again, Abdurahemsa Mokhtar from Puchong.

I have brought 1 female stray cat from my friend housing block that I suspect are abandoned by their owner to the clinic in USJ for the procedure on 14nd July 2014. The procedure was done the same day and I collected the cat on the same day.

As such, I would like to apply for neutering subsidy from AnimalCare and hope for your kind consideration on this.  I am pleased to attach here the photos of the cats involved which were taken before and after the procedure together with the completed form and original receipt.

I will pass the original receipt and form to you soon somewhere this week.

Thank you and may God bless your kind activitiesJ

Regards

Abdurahemsa

Lilica the Dog travels 4 miles every night to take food to other animals

Source: http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/07/20/abandoned-dog-traveled-4-miles-every-night-so-they-finally-followed-her-and-wow/

The human race still has a very long way to go when it comes to the treatment of animals. Things are changing, however, as more people are starting to realize that most beings on this planet, if not all beings, share something in common within their hearts; love, care, emotion, altruism, affection and consciousness. We are talking about living, breathing, feeling beings that are extremely intelligent. The only difference is that they take a different form than us, and use different communication techniques.

Animals Teach Us So Much!

We have so much to learn from animals. In the meantime, we have completely destroyed their world to support our greed. We’ve become completely disconnected with nature, and we will not be able to advance as a species if we continue down the same road we’ve been traveling.

I can understand why many of them fear us, and are very hesitant to come into contact with us. At the same time, many out there recognize that there is still good on this planet. I believe this comes from situations like the video shows below, or incidents like this one, where a whale showed amazing appreciation after being rescued from tangled nets.

Some people might be reading this and saying “duh.” On the other hand, I’m sure this video and these words will impact some in a positive way.

I came across this video floating around on the internet. It’s about a homeless dog who takes a 4 mile trip every night so she could feed her friends that were also hungry. Those of you who have a dog will not be surprised by this at all.

This biker helped a duck family cross the highway!

Salute!!

(Your heart might stop a few times watching this video, but don’t worry, the whole duck family made it across safely, up to the last little duckling – thanks to the heroic biker!)

http://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/biker-helps-ducks-cross-highway/

When traffic is piling up on the road and you’ve got places to go, it can be tempting to want to do anything to go faster or get out there without stalling. But in this video, drivers come face-to-face with a duck crossing and are forced to stop and let the ducks do their thing.

Many people might have let this little duck family waddle across the highway on their own, without stopping to help. But thanks to one biker’s human intervention, a family of ducks escaped a fateful death of being run over.

The ducks came close to their death several times while they were waddling across the highway. In the video, you can see the ducks weaving under a car, and you think they almost might not make it until the biker’s hand comes into the frame. Instead of driving by and leaving the ducks to their own devices, this biker stops traffic and makes people yield to the ducks. He actually gets off of his bike and walks over to the side of the road to make sure the ducks are safe!

It is so inspiring to see compassionate acts like this happening in the world, especially considering the extent of which human activity has infringed on animal habitats. When animals get into sticky, dangerous situations, it is only proper to help them get out and onto safe ground.

And we shall continue to post positive vibes on this blog as we don’t see any point in all the fighting and quarrels that are going on in the world. The world needs more positive vibes. The world isn’t perfect (nobody says it is), but we can focus on the positive and encourage more positive acts and thoughts.

Little random acts of kindness DO matter. Never mind if there is evil in the world – who can change that? We do our part and spread kindness around.

Kudos to the heroic biker!!

Ikea’s initiative to rehome shelter dogs in Singapore

Aznita shared this: http://mashable.com/2014/07/20/ikea-dog-adoption/

It’s Ikea Singapore teaming up with shelters to help rehome their dogs by encouraging customers to adopt the shelter dogs.

We hope other retail outlets and malls will follow too.

A friend who has done the math told me that if each household were to adopt ONE (yes, just one) street animal, it would reduce the street animal population drastically and very significantly.

Don’t buy. Adopt from the street, from rescuers or shelters.

Meanwhile, neuter, neuter, neuter!

We will help you if you are an honest individual caregiver who needs subsidies for neutering street animals and if you are not supported by any other sources.
