January 19–The Lord God Made Them All

All things bright and beautiful
All creatures great and small
And all things wise and wonderful
The Lord God made them all

–Cecil Frances Alexander

two pet ratsI have been in love with all of God’s creatures since reading the James Herriot books in elementary school. As a Buddhist, I respect ALL sentient beings, ALL life. And like, trees and stuff.

To make my voice heard and put forth my views into the world, I need to keep teaching others about the value of creatures they may not value…like rats.

Rats Are Wonderful

I have pet rats. They are not creepy or yucky. Their tails are not scary. They are curious, smart, fun little friends with feelings and emotions no different from yours or mine.

My current two are The Great Ratsby and F. Scott Fitzgerald, a.k.a. *Fitzie*.
