Am I the only one?

I don't know sometimes I have more sympathy when an animal gets hurt than a human? Am I the only one? I begin to think that maybe its because of the fact that animals have more of an innocent appeal than some humans. I have to say a child is an exception but its something I realized the other when I was driving and I almost ran over a cat and I slammed my brakes like it was the end of the world. That same day I had a friend that jokingly said t hat hitting a cat is 10 points. Then the other day I almost ran over a human but I calmly slammed my brakes and my friend said "Hey you almost hit that gut." and I replied, "That's 20 points." Of course I was joking too but I have a harder time joking about animals than humans. Am I an a-hole?

I am the same way. I think that some people are just meant to care more about animals. I will stop for an animal running across the road no matter what. I think a lot of it has to do with them not thinking like people. A person should know not to walk in front of cars. An animal does not have that logical thinking though. I have always been a huge animal lover. I used to bring strays home all the time and take care of them. I ran an animal shelter for awhile and loved it. All of my pets have been adopted from animal shelters. They make the best pets. It is wonderful to see all the love and affection that a shelter animal has.

I love dogs too but I own a cat its a Blue russian and I had my prior cat that I had since I was in the 6th grade but it got killed by 3 big dogs just before I turned 19. It was one of the saddest moments of my entire life. However, I hold no grudges on dogs. I love them too.

Me to. Sometimes I even care more about my pets or other animals than myself and other people. I feel that I should take care of them.
