"THE KISSING BUG" - Scientists call it the "kiss of death."  

The scientific name of this nasty little bug is Triatoma, but it's often referred to as “Bloodsucker", “Conenose Bug”, "Mexican Bedbug", or "Assassin Bug" and can actually kill humans and pets. Some kissing bugs transmit a dangerous and growing disease called "Chagas" which is a potentially fatal illness that attacks the heart and nervous system. The grossest part?  They feed on the area around the mouth of their victims, sucking blood and then depositing their feces into the open wound they just created!  EWWWW!  That's scary enough before adding the idea of contracting a deadly disease from the disgusting bug.

~By Colleen Mihelich, Founder,
The "double-edged sword" phenomenon of working in the animal care industry – you’ve dedicated your life to making a positive difference for animals, but the emotional stress is draining, exhausting and taking a toll on you. You can’t imagine doing anything else with your life, but outside of your work, do you have a life? You work in the animal care industry, not necessarily because you’ve chosen to, but because it’s chosen you. You cannot exist without doing all that you can to care for and save animals. You love what you do, but the heartbreak and emotional strain on you is sometimes too much to bear. There is a term for all of this, it’s called Compassion Fatigue (further referenced as CF) and it is normal, and very real. 
Not only does CF dominate your professional life, but it always rears its head in your personal life – sleepless nights, exhaustion, acute sadness, depression, isolation from friends, a life that feels out of balance, rides on emotional rollercoasters, and anger towards people in general for the terrible ways in which they treat animals.
