5:32am-Good Morning! How many of you wake up and feed your pet(s) before you eat? I would imagine it's most of you. I know the first thing I do is take Missy out and then feed her. People that aren't animal lover see us as an odd group, yet we can't figure them out! It's the same with shopping, most of us buy for our four legged/feathered friends/family first. The same with going to the doctor, if I had enough for Missy or me to go, she'd go! To us they're our children and we'd take their pain and illness if we could.
We look at predators different too. We try to find a humane way to keep them away from our animals. Where the worlds solution is to kill them. Humans took their hunting land, what did they expect them to do. We have a predator problem right now and we're going to put up some more things to just make them not want to come on our property. It takes a little more work but we always find a humane way. It's not their fault, so why should they suffer.
I look at the ones that came here as infants and we raised. This pic is of Little Miracle, she was just about 8 lbs when she got here and so frail. We started her in the house because she was frail. Now she's a big girl. The animals are our family and they always come first here at Sunrise.
