The rescue we work with had this poster advertised, and I was so captivated by it. Then I overheard someone talking to another person about how they wished that they could make a real impact in this world, really make a difference, before their time is through. So outspoken me, I called the person over and asked them what they thought of this. They looked at me a moment and said, what? So I replied, don't you see the kitten, to which they said, yeah so? And I went on to say that here was one way I knew of that they could help..............and they answered, it's a cat. They went onto say that their idea of being involved isn't about saving smelly cats.
To which I replied, well one thing's for sure.................and they asked, what's that? I answered, rescues and shelters will never go out of business as long as people like you walk this earth. I then dismissed them with my actions as if they weren't even there to begin with.
I know this is preaching to the choir here, but seriously I ask you...............WHO could see this ad or worse yet, see a kitten or cat just like this one on their street, in their neighbourhood, at their workplace, WHEREVER - and not want to help?!
I'm ashamed to admit it but these types of interactions drive me to judge people like this, to think horrible thoughts about them, and to instantly dislike them. I may seem or sound naive, but I just can't imagine the heart that looks at this and sees nothing.
