DO not let the season of “peace and goodwill to all men” stop there; instead, I implore everyone to consider and extend this to all the other animals who also live in the world.
By this I mean please do not abandon your loyal pets or tie them up and go away on holiday thinking they will be all right, because they will not be.
In addition, do not discard animals given as presents like all the unwanted wrapping paper and packaging.
Instead, do be kind, caring, considerate, gentle and ever thoughtful to your most loyal and true friends. Their faithfulness and love are the true measure of peace and goodwill all through their lives.
SUSAN CONWAY, Bassendean.
