Third Annual Worldwide Moment for Furred, Finned and Feathered Friends

Thanks to Two Special Wires, the Third Annual Worldwide Moment will happen at 6 PM EST Monday Nov. 14.  It is a a moment to honor the animals we have known and loved in the past and to send out positive energies to those alive today the world over. We would like to share the story of Tarra and Bella.

Tarra and Bella

Tarra lives at the elephant sanctuary near Nashville TN.  Her best friend was Bella, a stray dog who wandered into the 2700 acre haven in 2003 and forged an unusual friendship with Tarra.  When Bella incurred a spinal injury a few years ago, Tarra stood vigil for 3 weeks just outside the office  where Bella rested and recuperated.

Recently, Bella was attacked and killed by coyotes.  From what the sanctuary administrators can gather,  Tarra found her body and carried her best friend back to her home.  Tarra has been grieving but the other elephants have been sharing their food and attention to help her through this.  Tarra and Bella's story teaches us huge lessons about love, friendship, loyalty, loss and grief..  Please take the time to read their story here.

Only meditation and sending our loving kindness to all beings.
"In their innocence and wisdom, in their connection to the earth and its most ancient rhythms, animals show us a way back to a home they have never left."  ~ Susan Chernak McElroy

We at Wildcat Woods are sending positive thoughts to Tarra and her elephant friends to help them through their loss and to comfort them and peace to all animals everywhere.   Thank you for joining us today in prayer, meditation, reflection or contemplation in this Worldwide Moment.

The two FIV kittens Mom posted about - Cobbie was one that Brian of Brian's Home asked for help to place and Mom took to a local no-kill shelter - both were adopted last week AND...they both retested negative for FIV!!!  How great is that?  Thanks for all your purrs, prayers and assistance with this!

Danica (aka Cobbie) has a new home.

Angelica was adopted with another kitten named Turtle!

Of COURSE animals have feelings! After all, Humans are just animals, too.
And not too evolved, in our opinion, heh heh.
We will be observing our Moment as well.

My heart absolutely broke to hear that story. How can anyone doubt we have feelings?

Sparkle said...

I am taking part in the Movement today also!

Me and Charlie love the story of Bella and Tarra! It's so lovely and so sad too. We love the reporter's final words! We are glad that the kind people of the sanctuary allowed this friendship to blossom. Poor Tarra. We send her lots of hugs.

Thanks for the clip and for sharing Tarra and Bella's story here!

Take care

Ditto The Lounge. We don't know why humans somehow think they're superior or more evolved, just because they're currently the dominant species. Don't get us started.

Such a heartbreaking story, we're sending purrs to Tarra.

And we're participating this evening too.

Marg said...

The story about Tarra and Bella made me cry. It's so sad about Bella, and my heart breaks for Tarra as she mourns the passing of her best friend. :(

We ARE happy to hear about Cobbie/Danica and Angelica being adopted, and super excited to hear about their negative tests for FIV! That's the power of purrs, prayers and positive energies for sure!

We'll be joining in the movement at 6PM EST tonight. Thanks for the reminder, and for taking part!
