Dr. Kitty

Welcome to Waikiki-
South Shore surf is UP; skies are sunny; the people are warm! Clark Little's Artistry (c)

Hello, Pleased to Meet You

"When we are violent to our enemies, we do violence to ourselves. When we brutalize others, we brutalize ourselves. And eventually we run the risk of becoming our opressors."

Arundhati Roy

"Don't do nothing because you can't do everything. Do something. Anything."
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

Next time you are feeling anxious about life in this so-called "dog eat dog" world of ours stop and think about actual dogs you have known.
They're not eating each other, usually.
Think of the thrill of recognition that the "kid-you" felt
when you looked into the eyes of your pet.
You likely felt loved,
your dog followed you every where.

And though there are those who believe in fear-leadership
dogs lay down their lives,
or return from thousands of miles away,
for love.

Yes, an elemental love looks back at you
through the eyes of nature.

In this world
we are at home
and among family.

Dogs often take the role of protector,
a caring friend by the sick bed.

They try to assist
and research shows positive health affects
just from seeing
or touching

Cancer dogs can diagnose through smell,
helper dogs provide assistance
for activities of daily life.

And when I feel pain
Miss Kitty comes near in concern.
When she brushes my ankles
or settles nearby
my pain is lessened
my spirit leaps.
So thank you to our under-rated
who heal, love, and teach
A L O H A! Cloudia
