According to the ASPCA website, there are approximately ten million homeless pets currently living in the U.S. Of those, only about six million will ever make it into animal shelters, leaving four million animals left to fend for themselves. Life isn’t easy in the streets for animals like cats and dogs. It is a constant struggle to find food, a safe place to sleep, dodge traffic and figure out which animals and humans are friends or foes.
So when a man saw a homeless cat looking for food in the rain, he seized the opportunity to make the animal’s life that much easier. After a tasty meal in a dry place, the sweet kitty said thanks to the kind person in the only way that he could – with love!
Writer Milan Kundera once said “Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test…consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.” This kind animal rescuer has definitely proven himself to be a life saver, at least for this hungry kitty, proving that love, even the smallest gesture of live, saves lives.
