Cliffhanger: Can a mama lion save her cub?

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Mish Whalen writes

A lioness looks around helplessly after her cub fell down a ravine and couldn't make it back up the cliff.



Other members of the pride attempt to rescue the cub but stop trying when they realize it is too steep.



Only the mother lion is willing to take the risk.



Just as the exhausted cub seems about to fall, his mother circles beneath him and he is snatched up in her jaws, according to the Daily Mail. She then begins the difficult journey back to the top.



These dramatic frames were taken by wildlife photographer Jean-Francois Largot at Kenya's Masai Mara game reserve in August.



Safe and sound, the lioness gives the cub a big welcome-back lick.

  Now, you talk about motherly instinct?

And then we hear all these stories of mothers killing their babies and they are human beings.

We know there has to be something really wrong with these human mothers that do that.

If an animal can be willing to sacrifice her life to give her baby back his life what is wrong with us who are supposed to be made in the image and likeness of our Father Creator?

I know and realize it is not all human being mothers that kill their babies, it is just a small part, but, still, why are they even one of us who does this?

I guess we could say "Sin".

Those women must be so twisted and perverted in their spirit and soul to kill their own babies.

    If you have ever wondered how far a Mother's Love will take her, this should answer that. It is interesting that the other Lions (they were all females?) DID try to help, but they gave up.
emoticonI don't know whether Lions Pray, but God certainly gave her what she needed to rescue the Baby. Never doubt the effectiveness of a Mother's Persistence in Rescue Endeavors or in Prayer.

A Dog's Seeing-eye Dog

Thursday, November 17, 2011

To all my animal loving friends who I send these kinds of things to all the time, but also to those of you who might need a bit of inspiration and encouragement for the day or just a feel good moment! Even if you've seen it before, it's worth a few thoughts about love and compassion. Oops! Those are only human emotions. Right? Well, there's something going on here. Enjoy!



Lily is a Great Dane who has been blind since a bizarre medical condition required that she have both eyes removed. For the last 5 years, Maddison, another Great Dane, has been her sight. The two are, of course, inseparable.

How cool is this?

Boy born at 11:11 on 11-11-11 to vet on Vets Day
MOUNT HOLLY, New Jersey (AP) Jacob Anthony Saydeh won't have any trouble remembering precisely when he was born.
A U.S. hospital says Jacob entered the world at 11:11 a.m. on Friday 11-11-11.
And to make the Veterans Day birth even more remarkable, the boy's mother is an Air Force veteran and his father is serving in the Air Force.
It's the second child for Staff Sgt. Christopher Saydeh and his wife, Danielle. They are a third-generation military family.
