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.

Famous Taiwanese singer Chang Yen-ting, better known as Fei Yu-ching, has donated NT$1 million (US$33,000) to an animal protection group, which will use the money to buy cat and dog food for animals in shelters.

Ni Jing-tai, a spokesman for the Animal Rescue Team, said Monday that it set up a fund-raising platform to solicit donations on a long-term basis to help stray dogs or cats or those kept in underfunded private dog or cat shelters.

Ni said that Fei, known for his love of animals, contacted the platform through his agent and informed the group that he wanted to make a donation and hoped that more people would join him.

The group did not expect the donation to be as much as NT$1 million, and "we're very moved," Ni said.

Ni said the money will be used to buy dog and cat food that will then be donated to 50 underfunded cat and dog shelters around Taiwan, benefiting an estimated 12,900 cats and dogs.

Fei is famous for his mellifluous voice and has a wide following in the ethnic Chinese community.

News of the donation has received an enthusiastic response since it was posted on the Animal Rescue Team's Facebook page over the weekend.

As of Monday morning, more than 35,000 netizens "liked" the news, with some leaving messages such as "Fei Yu-ching is handsome and good at singing," "Xiaoge (nickname of Fei), you're great," "you are a guardian angel for stray cats and dogs," and "give you tens of millions of likes."
