Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Affection, gentleness, warmth, concern, and care are words that are associated with kindness. It has been an extraordinary couple of months around the globe as people were asked to stay home, stay connected, distance themselves from people and respect personal space. Through it all, people had to learn to be kind from a distance. To stay in touch without the ability to touch, take care of family and friends, without the ability to care in person. For some, their dogs and cats were the only physical and emotional steady connection during this time. A surge of videos was released anthropomorphizing domestic dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and birds. People became creative in showing true kindness to humans through the imagined dialogue of their pets. Adoption at animal rescues increased and neighbours helped each other with dog walking, farm care and animal welfare. This year, more than in the past, the month that recognizes Be Kind to Animals, should include be Kind to Each Other and Kind to the Earth.
