Spring is here, restrictions have been lifted, what does this mean in your animal’s world?
As all of us start to leave our homes whether back in the office working, meeting up with friends and family or just wanting to get outside we are excited about the possibilities we have. What about the animals, do they feel the same? Are they excited for us to be gone more? Are they okay with staying home or being by themselves more?
We need to think about not only ourselves but also the animals. They are now use to us being home more. More attention, playtime and love devoted to them are now becoming less. Even if we don’t see it this way, how do they see this, is the question? Keeping our animals safe, happy and loved is always the goal. We need to be conscious of their feelings and how this period is affecting them.
There is a lot of talk about balance in one’s life. This is also important in the animal’s life. We are responsible for maintaining that balance. We need to make sure the changes happening are also good for them. Yes we are excited and probably have a whole list of things we want to do. Just remember there is an animal that will be looking at this with a different perspective.
Make sure to not disrupt your animal’s routine without considering their feelings. There will be adjustments that will need to be made for the animal by you. Go slow and be aware of their reaction. Have empathy for the situation they are now in. Remember they just want to be with us because they love us.
What does this mean for the wild animal’s world?
The wildlife has seen more activity by individual humans in a good way over the past few years. Getting out enjoying nature and outside activities has been a welcome change. Much needed change that benefits our health and for nature to not only survive but thrive. Example: Walking instead of driving. Walking through the trees, listening to the birds and watching all the surrounding wildlife gives a new appreciation of what nature has to offer. While doing this you are making a difference towards climate change.
The wildlife has for the most part been thriving over the past few years. Our planet is our life source for all beings. We can share this space with love and compassion. This is our time to take action for the highest good of all.
