It would be interesting to see just how long she’d be content to stay put in your arms or lap.

I beg to differ with Spencer Anderson’s take on “animal rights” (Letter to the Editor, Sept. 13, East Valley Tribune). Animals may not be able to build skyscrapers or long bridges but they can surely reason more clearly in many cases and they have the ability to evaluate the character of a man. Their love is forgiving and loyal be they canine, feline, equine, reptile, bovine, and the list goes on.
LOS ANGELES — You nurse and nurture, live with and love an animal in your home. After a few weeks or months, you turn it over to someone or return it to a shelter. Watching a foster pet leave the nest can be rewarding, but you are probably still going to cry your eyes out.
