|Today a terrible tragedy occurred here in Santa Ana, CA. A kitty was injured, flailing in the street, and all the cars on the road either drove around it or drove over it (OVER??). He/she was alive. By the time the witness whom I am writing for got there, the kitty was dead.
To this kitty we extend our love and affection, and usher him/her over the Rainbow Bridge to join the many who I know will welcome him/her with loving paws.
I shall not go into the pain and utter despair we feel as a result of this event. The anger and frustration we feel towards the humans who chose not to stop is absolutely overwhelming. Is the human condition that hopeless?
Does fur and not being able to speak the human language make our lives less meaningfull? Are we less valuable than any other creature on the earth? Those who are religious - are humans not supposed to love all of God's creatures? Can anyone make an argument for why someone made the choice not to stop that doesn't sound selfish and absurd? Do you think these people call themselves "good" people? Do you think they can still qualify as such after driving over the injured kitty?
A serious question to consider: how many people do you know would have stopped?
Again, we wish the Unknown Kitty all of our love. May the kitty forget his/her last moments on earth, and be at peace over the Rainbow Bridge.
