They remember love, kindness, and compassion.
Animals can be grateful. They never forget kindness, all their lives they remember those who cared for them, who helped, who treated, who fed…
No matter how much time has passed, the animal recognizes its savior. They remember love, kindness, and compassion.
Everyone knows about the gratitude of the dogs, about the ability to remember the good, but this is not only for them. Grateful can be chimpanzees, gorillas, bears, lions… or 2 lions.
The British newspaper Daily Mirror told an amazing story about a woman who saved two small orphaned lions 7 years ago.
She fed, raised, and loved them, but predators grew, and the woman could not provide them with conditions for a good life. Then she gave the kids to the Swiss Zoo.
Later, two adult predators were taken to a specialized Lion Park in Slovakia. There they live freely in a large territory next to their brothers.
It was in this park that a touching meeting took place.
This is the first meeting of a woman with her lion cubs after a long separation. She was very worried and did not know if two adult predators would remember her.
She watched with trepidation as wild cats approach the fence and then … After a moment, the lions recognized their named mother and rushed to her! How they hugged her! This is Love! This is gratitude!
This is how animals know how to love!
