December is Animal Sanctuary Appreciation Month and also has these specific observations:
The most endangered African big cat is the cheetah. Fewer than 7,100 cheetahs remain in the wild, mostly due to habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict. Cheetahs are known for their speed, and for good reason. They can reach speeds of up to 70 mph in 3 seconds! Their spine is flexible allowing them to reach strides over 20 feet long, and their tail acts like a rudder to help them steer at high speeds. Cheetahs are also known for their spots. They are covered in about 2000 spots, which can be found on their skin too. The spots help them to blend in with the sun and shadow of their surroundings as they carefully stalk prey before a burst of speed. Their distinctive tear markings under the eyes help deflect the sun's glare, much like football players' eye black.
December can often be hectic, but hopefully this year will allow for time to relax and reflect on the roller coaster we've had in 2020. With extra time at home and a few weeks left before holiday gift exchanges, this would be a great time to go through closets and cabinets to donate unwanted clothes and household goods to a thrift store or charitable organization. Most of these organizations, especially the larger ones, have a streamlined process to get unsold goods to humanitarian aid around the world and to handle unsaleable items for salvage efforts that divert items from landfills. All this with the added bonuses of helping you declutter your home and knowing that you made a difference for someone in need! It's a win-win for everyone involved.
