Since Saturday I've been taking care of a stray cat. He is the most gentle, loving and gracious soul. His owner just dropped him off at the condo and went on their marry way.
Seeing this poor kitten outside my front door since Saturday breaks my heart for it knowing how hot it is outside. I know, you're probably thinking, "if you feel bad for it, bring it inside." Yes, I could do that except I'm kinda allergic to cats and I have two puppies... plus I don't know if this cat has any infections or rabbis and I don't want to put my two fur-babies in danger.
Every time I go outside to change it water and feed him I just think to myself how must this little thing feel. I know the water I give him, the food I bring him, the pillow I let him sleep on and the toys I've bought him are simply not enough...
It left me thinking, why do people put themselves and their interest before a sweet innocent pet.
Cats take care of themselves it's not like they require as much time and attention as a dog would. Why would someone leave something so precious just out on the street with no remorse, no feelings and no concern for it? You'd have to be extremely cold-hearted to do so and not even blink twice.
Think about it deeper, we think that animals have no feelings or emotions, but they do.
A cow senses when it's about to get slaughtered, a dog feels when he's getting abandoned. If we can't take care of something, then we all need to think before we embark on getting an pet out of a whim.
Animals bring such joy into your lives. Being able to not only give love but receive their love is one of the purest kinds there is.
But I'm not just talking about putting love into animals. Put love into every action you take, every move you make, with love you can achieve anything. Conquering ones goals and ambitions means nothing if you font have love from within yourself to do it.
