This story is about a person very dear to me who I believe made a world of difference to a kitten. She grew fond of a meek little kitten who frequented her house and often ate and rested there. One fateful day, the young one met with an accident because of which he had sustained severe internal injuries. She promptly took him to a vet who gave him not more than a day to live. Deeply saddened, she took him in nevertheless and continued to care for him in every way possible. Remarkably, despite the grave injuries, Puttu, as she called him fondly, ate, even played sometimes and lived for 15 more days before passing on. Despite her sadness, she was able to rise above suffering with acts of kindness. The little one, whose pain I cannot imagine, lived his final days showered with affection and care.
The kindness shown to the kitten changed its world.
