Mancat Monday: Please Thank a Veteran Today and Every Day

Tiny Tim Needs a Miracle

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to American’s veterans for their dedication and service to our great country.  Not only have our veterans protected us and our freedom during times of war, they also look after us during times of peace as well.

While we would prefer that things always be peaceful the reality is often otherwise.  During times of war or crisis our veterans were there.  It’s not just the human veterans that I am thankful for today, I am also thankful for the countless animals that served our country too.  The horses, dogs, mules, homing pigeons, and others served our country with pride and dignity too.

Please thank a Veteran today, and every single day.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

It is Poppy Day in the UK where we remember our brave forces too for their selflessness going to many countries to fight and to help throughout the world. We hope one day there will be peace throughout the world and they can all return home to their families.

Beautifully said and agree totally..we have so much that we can take for granted,things we would not have without the huge sacrifice of others,freedom of speech,the right to live a good life..we always pay tribute also to those animals that without choice become heroes in their own rights..and we do hope poor little Tiny Tim can be found a safe haven such a sad little sight but such a sweet soul..breaks our hearts :(
