    Need Prayers for the Calgary Zoo Giraffes

    The giraffes at our zoo are suffering from stress in the aftermath of the floods. If we could all keep them in our prayers I know we can help them survive. Thank you everyone!!!

    We are saying many prayers for the giraffes and for everyone else (of any species) affected by those floods.

    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    They were standing in cold water for a couple of days...there is fear that one may not make it due to the physical and other stress.

    Hugs prayers going out to those creatures - and to the zoo staff, as no volunteers can yet come in to help.
