Dearest bloggie friends
I need to warn you that the link to Bin’s site will contain quite distressing pics. But amidst these ones are loving ones – especially the one where a hand reaches out gently to comfort.
I had something fun to post today but I couldn’t in all honesty do so after I came across Bin’s latest post on her blog A desperate and reluctant housewife...
She has come across a cat that she found alive but mutiliated – his paw and tail have been hacked off.
Her post is a lament on this poor cat’s behalf.
Bin isn’t well herself and has 12 other cats but she has taken this poor kitty in.
And I’m feeling sick to the gut.
You know we are so capable of such love and humanity, such selflessness and courage, fortitude, faith, intelligence, curiosity, logic, creativity...
I’m sorry I really in all honesty didn’t plan on having such a sombre post today.
I want this blog to be a refuge from some of the realities out there, but even I can’t stomach or ignore this.
And yes I know, I know there are bigger issues out there, bigger world events that perhaps dilutes this cat's suffering at the mercy of whoever did this to a speck in the grand scheme of things.
Dearest Bin, thank you for taking this lovely creature into your heart and your home.
Here's hoping that your beautiful act of kindness starts a ripple into something bigger.
