My previous post was angry, and looked at the worst aspects of the human animal and how some can sink to levels that might drive me to violence against them. I find it really difficult to soften my feelings towards the two teenagers involved.
But humans can be kind as well. The stray kitten (who has been named Adam) I was talking about is receiving a lot of love and care, and actually stands a good chance now of surviving. There is even a video of Adam including one of the nurses involved in his care. Tina, the Nurse, says she has chosen to keep her thoughts on the kindness of people who have come together to help him. Bear in mind that the video was taken about a month after Adam was set on fire by the teenage girls. Several other cats in the same cages are still missing.
I’ll do my best to adopt Tina’s frame of thinking as well. But it is hard not to wish for a few gallons of napalm and a little free access to the prison cell where the teenage girls who did this are being held.
Update: Adam is being treated at/by the Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County organization. You can visit their website to see updates regarding Adam. His next major surgery is on July 24th.
