I'm Lisa and the "L" in the LEO acronym which stands for Lisa, Evan (my photographer husband) and our three little rescue cats, Ernest, Emma & Oliver. I am passionate about saving the Big Cats (and little cats) around the world. Evan and I use our writing and photography to raise awareness about the plight of these animals. It is out intention to make a difference. I think this quote from George Bernard Shaw's "Man and Superman" says it all:

"This is the true joy in life,
the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one;
the being a force of nature
instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances
complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community
and as long as I live,
it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die,
for the harder I work, the more I live.
I rejoice in life for its own sake.
Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment,
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible
before handing it on to future generations."
