People and Animals

Jul 10, 2008
The connection that people and animals share is filled with a history that is rich in warfare and conflict. For centuries animals have been used to help kill other humans, soothe stressed out individuals, and help with our transition from life to death. No matter where you look in this world, animals are right beside humans in their endeavor to exist. Just as with the many creation stories that exist, animals have been around since the beginning of time, and the relationship that they share with humans has also been alive since then.

Ancestors of the world revered animals in many different ways. The Egyptians saw cats as the guardians of the underworld, and also as the way to keep evil spirits at bay. Many of the Egyptian gods are depicted in a cat like form. For example, Bast is the female goddess of sexuality, truth, enlightenment, and many other virtues in the Egyptian culture. Bast is depicted as a beautiful curvy young woman with the head of a cat. This is just one example of how the Egyptians revered cats. According to historians, they revered these animals more than any other culture that has existed in history.

Dogs on the other hand, more than likely descended from the wolf. They have been used for the past 10,000 years to help keep flocks in line, people safe, and as a companion. They are seen now as being man's best friend. Millions of dogs are on this planet, and most are very therapeutic companions to humans. We love our dogs and keep them safe from harm. In history, this was the other way around.

Since the beginning of time, the Native Americans have been associating their lives with that of animals in the wildlife kingdom. One of the most misunderstood of these animals is the wolf. For years, the wolf has been seen as an aggressor, when in reality they are very loving and social creatures. This side of the animal was first seen by the tribes of the Americas. The Native American tribes recognized this and they have incorporated the wolf into many of their myths and legends. The wolf will forever be associated with the Native Americans, and learning more about this relationship can help one to better understand the world of Native Americans.

Today, both dogs and cats are seen as being great pets to own. Scientists have found that owners of pets usually live longer and have a less stressful life than their counterparts. They are used in hospitals around the world as ways to help patients cope with life changing illnesses. Pets can change you life for the better if you just allow them to come into it.

We love our pets so much that we keep our homes filled with pet nostalgia. Everything from dog videos to cat pictures can be found in a pet lover's home. We even adorn ourselves with jewelry and clothing that tells the world how much we love and adore our pets. To find these unique items one only has to go to their local brick and mortar store or search the internet for the best items. However, if you live in a place that pets are not allowed, you can still cuddle with your favorite animal. No matter what type of animal you love, they have a huge selection of blankets to fit your every need and desire. Pets have been in our lives for thousands of years, and more than likely, as long as humans are alive, they will continue to grace us with their unique presence.
