The animal kingdom has always co-existed with humans for untold generations. The symbiotic relationship between man and the fauna species in the environment has been interdependent. However, the recent injustice against animals is on the high rise and as such must be addressed. Animals that have been adopted as pets face domestic violence, issuing from their owners who are impatient towards the weaknesses of these frail species. As such, some expose them to the harsh weather condition such as rain and the intense heat from the radiant rays of the sun. Other people starve their pets owing to the fact that they destroyed their high earned property out of sheer ignorance. These pets must not receive this domestic violence.
Others who are insensitive to the needs of their pets, especially health care, leaves them in the cold hands of the treacherous diseases like Lyme, Canine Parvovirus, Diabetes, Arthritis, Rabies and many others. These animals are life agents who need constant medical checkups as humans do. They must frequent to veterinary centers for them to be examined on new health risk developments so that they can be attended to immediately.
A balanced diet is a requirement for the health advancement of every life agent. Animals in our care must be recipients of well-nourished meals eaten at proper times and intervals within the day. They must have enough rest and must not be subjected to any kind of activity that would waste away their strengths. Starving pets as a punishment is an insanity on the part of owners because its aim would not be achieved, after all, they are not mental agents like humans who can easily ascertain the moral lessons of such actions. In no way should humans tamper with the rights of animals!
Some feel that spending untold sums and resources for caring for animals is a mere drain on one’s economy but this assertion is not justified. The benefits earned from these fauna species are astronomical and this write-up cannot exhaust all of them. Aside from they offering recreation, physical protection, and company, these wonderful creatures offer spiritual protection and can ward off evil attack targeted to a specific household. Cats, dogs, parrots and other fauna species are charged with special spiritual protective powers. They can give signs of imminent dangers in their sudden change of attitude which a responsible owner can easily recognize. This should incite humans to constantly care for the animals in their care.
As scholars, we glean many powerful lessons from these animals in our environment if we carefully analyse their way of life. For instance, we learn how to defend our wards and shield them from all possible dangers from how the hen goes all out to protect her chicks. The eagle tutors us on perseverance and determination to succeed and even the tiny ant, teaches us on the need for advance preparation for stormy days!
Yes! The wildlife in our homes and in our environment must be protected, cared for and shown kindness. Let us fight against the injustices toward our own indigene, our animal family to achieve a better world of peaceful co-existence.
