I am a sucker for homeless animals, and I will help them if I can. I've also noticed that I seem to help 'stray' humans, as well, as many of my kids' friends call me 'Mom.' I've had friends or family who need a helping hand live with me, sometimes, for an extended period of time. No, I've never felt they were taking advantage of me, but am happy to help. It's usually worked out for all concerned.

    I hope there is a special place in hell for those who abuse animals.

    I give money and volunteer services at animal shelters. Animal lover (especially dogs) that I am, but No under NO circumstances have I ever taken a strange animal into my home.

    There were cats abandoned near me, and I fed them, tamed them, and found them homes. The stray 'humans' I've taken in were all known to me--friends or family.

    Unsure if you're a believer or not but Blessings! That is good that you're doing.
    BTW, I have allowed friends/family to live with me... For a time, but they needed to work on getting themselves a different situation. Maybe a month or two... There needed to be a clear end date in sight. It probably sounds harsh, but I am single and have always lived in a one bedroom apartment. I am the type that requires my own space.

    I can understand that, truly. I'm a single woman living in a 3 bedroom house. My cousin has been living with me for a couple of years--long story, but she was downsized, find a job in the area in which I live, but can't sell her house in the other area. I don't charge rent, but she helps with expenses, and I have had company instead of being alone with the cats and dog. It's been a blessing for me, truly, so I don't mind my stray human. I have plenty of room to have my own space and privacy, even with her with me, as the house is much bigger than a single woman alone needs.
