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.

Animal safety checks to continue in capital

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

To ensure Jakarta is free of animal-related diseases, officials will continue to inspect goats and cattle for three days after the Islamic Day of Sacrifice, or Idul Adha, which fell on Dec. 20.

"I have instructed officials to continue checking animals for three more days," Governor Fauzi Bowo said Thursday after attending Idul Adha prayers at the City Hall.

During the prayers, Fauzi presented a cow to the head of the Jakarta Spiritual Management Center, Abdul Madjid S.

Some 17 cows and 55 goats left at the City Hall on Thursday were to be taken to a slaughterhouse in Cakung, East Jakarta.

The head of the city's animal husbandry, fisheries and marine agency, Edy Setiarto, said officials would check the health of animals both before and after their slaughter.

"I hope there will be no reports of anthrax as there were last year," Edy said.

Last year the administration was forced to ban animals from several locations in Depok, Purwakarta, and Bogor from being transported into the city when it was discovered they were infected with anthrax.

Almost 3,000 officials, including 265 veterinarians from the Bogor Agricultural Institute and 50 more from the Jakarta branch of the Indonesian Association of Veterinarians, are expected to check the health of around 71,000 animals in some 2,200 slaughterhouses located in the capital.

Other officials have been deployed to check the health of animals in slaughterhouses throughout the municipality.

"We will check the condition of animals after they are slaughtered also. We will check things such as their kidneys, hearts and livers," said Chaidir Taufik, an official at West Jakarta's animal husbandry agency.

He said respiratory diseases had been the most common illness found in cattle and goats during the campaign.

"Some traders do not take care of the animals well," he said, adding that officials tell traders to treat their sick animals with antibiotics rather than sell them.

"Fortunately, at this stage there have not been any cases of anthrax reported," he said. (ewd)
