Fun fact: Japan was the first country to respond when we had a massive earthquake here in New Zealand. Funny how Australia is meant to be our sister country and yet another country half way across the globe managed to get here and help before a sister country that's a 6 hr flight at most. Much love and respect for Japan ♥ Arigato

My heart breaks to all people who died.. also to the cats, and dogs, and pets.. 😭

Edit: I should have typed animals instead of pets but I think at that moment, I couldn't find the right term to use for some reason so I typed pets. Anyway, thanks for the hilarious replies and unexpected likes.
