Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Gus Maryono, THE JAKARTA POST, BANYUMAS | Sat, 01/17/2009 5:25 PM

Farmers in four regencies have been left reeling with failed crops after rats struck 300 hectares of rice paddies in Banyumas, Central Java, over the past two weeks.

On Friday, provincial agriculture agency official Tri Gunawan said rats usually only attacked 2- to 3-month-old rice stalks.

"We don't know the real cause of this.

"Usually the rats attack paddies that do not have the same planting season as others," he said.

The staggered planting seasons mean the rats are constantly supplied with food.

Tri said his office had encouraged farming communities to handle the rats using conventional methods.

ask farmers to ambush the rats together. Although they may not be able to kill them all, at least the effort can help reduce the rat population," he said.

Tri also pointed to the decreasing number of the rats' predators, particularly snakes. has made the rat number keep increasing," he said.

Many villagers hunt snakes for commercial purposes. A single snake can fetch between Rp 20,000 (US$2) and Rp 50,000, depending on the species and size.

The farmers are livid about the rat attacks. is unbelievable. It seems the number of rats never decreases. We kill a lot of them - we put their bodies in sacks. still their numbers remain big. I don't know where they come from," Sumadi, a 34-year-old farmer in Karang Tengah village, Banyumas regency, told The Jakarta Post on Friday.

He also vented his fury over the rats entering villagers' homes.

"The whole village has waged war against the rats. They steal food from our kitchens," he said.

He added he could kill up to seven rats a day with rat traps. they get into the house through our windows," he said.

Another farmer, Tukiran, 50, lamented the failed crops on his 5,000-square-meter rice paddy destroyed by the rats.

"I just checked my paddy. It's a mess. We lost big this time," he said.
