The Inner Being

The Inner Being
Feeling is over rated. When feeling better about yourself, someone will be there to knock you down. When trying to help in some way, you feel incomplete. When trying to love more, you feel loved less. When looking for friendship, you can’t find a friend. When looking for healing, you find your pain. When looking for forgiveness, you find your sins.
Secrets, fears…they will eat you up, never to let you slumber.
To feel the innocence of true love is to never have made a mistake.
The world expects too much to let go, to feel complete, to be totally free.
No guilt, no regrets, no fears….no life.
A life lived is not free. It is the inner being struggling to be accepted, loved and made whole. It shall never be.
(Written by Brenda Lamonica in 2008)

Isla Spay and Neuter Clinic

These are just a few of the cats that were trapped for the Spay and Neuter Clinic last Wednesday thru Friday. I was able to help the volunteers trap six cats, who live behind our Isla apartment.
These young people are spending their days rescueing the animals of Isla and finding them homes in the US through Pet Project Rescue. This mom and her pup were rescued on Thursday of last week. They will be Spayed, checked out, treated by the vet and fostered by Allison of Animal Rescue until they are flown to the US.

This is one of the many cats who lives on the patio of Delfino's Vet Clinic. Many hours are spent each day cleaning dishes, feeding cats, cleaning litter boxes, washing towels and surgical gowns.

This little kitty had not eaten in a few days. He or she (I wasn't sure) had lost it's mommy or been abandoned. Just one of the many tasks I did during the day days I volunteered.

So if you are on Isla and would like to make a difference, volunteer your time or make a donation to Delfino's Clinic. He is an Angel to the Isla animals.
