Often described as a symbol of perfect friendship because it has no beginning and no end. The rays on the sides of the symbol are a reference to the powerful number of four. The symbol originated with the Indians of Zia Pueblo in ancient times. It's design reflects their tribal philosophy, with its wealth of pantheistic spiritualism teaching the basic harmony of all things in the universe. It's also the New Mexico symbol for their flag.
I didn't want another animal, I Love animals - but I didn't need another stray deciding to be part of our pack. That seems to be something that keeps happening over here (the last one I gave to a neighbor). Stray cats - they decide that This is Home! That last one I took in is now 20yrs old. I'm a sucker - I feel bad for them, their hungry, their scared, their lost - I post ads and no one every claims them. So I feed them, talk to them, give them a bed and they stay! Go Figure!
