I am an animal lover (as blog suggests). I have been vegan for about 17 years after watching a documentary about the manner in which animals were treated prior to slaughter and general conditions of livestock bred for sale to supermarkets, butchers etc. I am also strongly opposed to the use of animals for testing and also do not use products that contain animal by-products. I feel very strongly about this. In short, I love animals. I hope to be posting all sorts of helpful and interesting posts regarding pets, wildlife and the ethical treatment of animals in general.

I am not religious, try to be spiritual and follow the Buddhist philosophy as best I can.

I write because this is how I express myself best.

I hope our journey together is a long and exciting one …
