My husband and I moved from Arlington, Va., to Fort Myers, Fla., to retire and were so happy that your column appears in our local paper, since we enjoyed it for many years in the Washington Post. How do you keep on going, caring so much while seeing so much animal abuse and ignorance?.

I appreciate your kind words about my syndicated column. What keeps me going is my abiding love and concern for all creatures great and small, my moral outrage over the inhumanity of my own species and the good research and clinical studies by veterinarians and others dedicated to improving the health and well-being of our non-human kin that I share in my writings.
