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.

Safari hands tiger cub to Vice President

Antara News, Wednesday, February 3, 2010 15:20 WIB

Bogor (ANTARA News) - Indonesia`s Cisarua Safari Garden (TSI) in its capacity as an "ex-situ" conservation has handed a Sumatran tiger cub (panthera tigris sumatrae) to Vice President Boediono.

"The five-week old tiger cub was handed to the vice president at a function to launch National Natural Conservation Day at the Vice Presidential Palace on January 22, 2010," TSI spokesman Yulius H Suprihardo said in Cisarua, Bogor, on Wednesday.

He said the tiger cub was handed to Vice President Boediono by Jansen Manansang, who is concurrently the president of Southeast Asian Zoos Association.

Jansen Manansang presented the tiger cub to the vice president who then passed it on to Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan for conservation and preservation effort.

According to Yulius Suprihardo, the vice president on the occasion named the tiger cub after "Wira" as the offspring of endangered Sumatran tiger in the past several years.

Yulius said the conservation and preservation effort was of great importance because Sumatran tigers at present were at the brink of extinction, or less than 400 in number.

While two other kinds of Indonesian tiger namely Balinese tigers (panthera tigris balica) became extinct in 1935 and Javanese tigers (panthera tigris sondaica) have since 1970 been no longer in existence.

Since Sumatran tigers are at the brink of extinction, Yulius called for public awareness of the preservation of Indonesia`s typical endemic animals.

It is in this relation that Yulius said Cisarua Safari Garden would make every effort to provide its visitors with the knowledge and introduction of endangered animals especially tigers.

According to Yulius, introduction of tigers to TSI visitors during Chinese Lunar New Year holiday season would be made with the involvement of several tiger keepers.

"Thus since January 17 up to the peak event of the Chinese Lunar New Year on February 14, 2010, the tiger keepers will give TSI visitors interesting and important information about tigers ranging from their habitat, their kinds, and the cause of extinction," Yulius said.
