I feel a lot more for homeless cats..........and dogs!.........than for people. I believe that homeless people are not choosing to be that way because who would choose such a thing. I think that they have no choice, for whatever reason, and there could be a million reasons which we do not know or understand unless we have been there! It could happen to any of us....there but for the grace of God go I. However, I think that there are a lot fewer homeless people than homeless animals, and a LOT more people care about them, and there are always shelters where they can go. Not so for homeless animals, who can starve to death, be abused, kicked around, or killed with impunity. I will always go wayyy out of my way for an animal in need. I am afraid that I do not for people. We cannot all do everything; you have to choose to do what is most important to you. For me, that is animals over people, every time.
