Gee, Maggie. Animals fascinate me and I have always observed them without preconceived ideas about them. They taught me much about the mystery of life and about myself.
I have a deep reverence for animals, be it small or big ones, wild or domesticated ones, cold-blooded or warm-blooded ones, insects, birds, or mammals. They are all wonderful creatures; I feel privileged to have spent so much of my life with them. There was always a spontaneous urge in me to do whatever possible to alleviate the pain and distress of animals and provide them with living conditions that foster their well-being.
Developing a mutually trusting relationship with them not only has been a deeply touching experience, but it also is the foundation upon which I interact with them. Please enjoy.
