KRAZY KATS

Welcome to Krazy Kats - a friendly informal discussion forum: Talk about anything from birth to death - and beyond!

The Video of the Week now showing on Light After Life forum is: 'HUMAN'
I hope everyone is safe from the rages of Ophelia. Not forgetting the poor frightened animals too. xx
Hearing all the stories here. 3 people have died so far in Ireland with trees hitting cars. Can't for the life of me understand why anyone would venture out in a car in a hurricane!!!
A really strange golden hue in the atmosphere here in London. And a weird but slightly familiar smell in the air - reminds me of just before a sandstorm in Libya.

The elephants knew

THE ELEPHANT'S JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT,
BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?


Lawrence Anthony,
a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller,
The Elephant Whisperer.
He bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe
from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo
animals during US invasion in 2003.
On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died.  
He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons, and
numerous elephants.  
Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home
led by two large matriarchs.  Separate wild herds arrived in droves
to say goodbye to their beloved 'man-friend'.  
A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles
to get to his South African House.


Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only
because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these
elephants sensed about Lawrence's passing, but also because of
the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked
in such an organized way: Walking slowly, for days,
making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat
to his house.  Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched,
knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years!
But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously
wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend
who'd saved their lives - so much respect that
they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.  
Then one morning, they left, making their long journey
back home.


SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE IS GREATER
AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.
