Friends – The Happy Threesome

This is Leo the African Lion, Baloo the Black Bear, and Shere Khan the Bengal Tiger.
 
The threesome were rescued as babies from the basement of an Atlanta drug dealer’s home when it was raided by authorities.

They were starving, traumatized and had bacterial infections.
image002
Since then, they were brought to Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary
image003
… where they’ve lived in the same habitat together for 13 years.
image004
The only time the three were separated was when Baloo was sent to surgery. 
[While at the drug dealer’s home, Baloo had been mistreated so profoundly that the harness that was put on him had grown into his skin.]
image005
The two cats were distraught and cried for the bear’s return when he was at the vet’s. 
 
Since then no one has separated the group.
image006
They clearly bonded during their earliest memories and never wanted to be apart.
image007
Now they live together as if they were brothers of the same species.
image008
They play together, nuzzle one another and are extremely affectionate.
image009
The threesome are the only lion, tiger and bear living together in the world.
image010
They’re just that exceptional.
image011
Humans could really learn from the bond that these three have.
image014
No one ever told them they couldn’t love one another, so they did just that.
image012
And now, even all these years later, they continue to do so.
image013
The trio are affectionately referred to as BLT, standing for bear, lion, and tiger.

They might just be the most adorable sandwich ever!

We Hello baby Harrison there you are
Born on August the 15th, you are such a star

Not only is it Richard’s birthday, your Dad

Chances are they won’t forget your birthday
And for your Dad, it was a wonderful gift  I would say

Well welcome Harrison into the Mackie fold

With all the love and attention I am sure you will thrive

With all your cousins, and there’s a few, Yes so much fun

And I know for sure there’s someone above will all be watching over you

Poem Friday – Kindness

kindness
By Lesley Voth

It is always a good feeling to be kind
Wonderful for the soul, great for the mind

Kindess is not always to be found
Some are hurtful, nasty and not nice to be around

We should always aspire to attend the need of others
As we would for our family, sisters and brothers

Be genuine in all that we say
Hopefully make for someone a special day

To give and expect nothing in return
From someone elses kindness we can learn

To be compassionate and sensitive to all living things
Great rewards to our soul will this kindness bring

To display kindness with energy and passion
I hope kindness never becomes old fashion

Inspire, encourage and motivate who ever it may be
You know sometimes that kindness needs to be given to me, by me

Be patient and tolerate those who are disagreeable
We have not way of knowing their trouble, their future not forseeable

So be kind to yourself and those around you
May life for all be happy and smooth, not a dull day only sky blue
