'My bit for the world's animals'

Hi. My name is Ruth, and I live near Bristol, England. I have no brothers or sisters but really make up for that with my lovely animals. Fourteen animals "own" me! A dog, four cats (yes, they do get along), two degus (South American rodents), three goldfish, two giant African land snails (they are very cute and fluffy), two guinea pigs, and I used to have a rabbit.

I Love animals (as you can probably tell), and I used to get upset about endangered animals such as tigers, giant pandas, and whales (whales rock by the way). To help with this, Mum would tell me: "It's God's creation, and He supports and sustains it. All animals are spiritual ideas of God." Mary Baker Eddy wrote in Science and Health, "All of God's creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible" (p. 514).
