Yesterday’s tragic events at the Boston Marathon devastated just about everybody my human and I know. Several of our blogging and Facebook kitty friends live in the area, and I am grateful they weren’t near the explosions. I am purring for those who were not so fortunate. But that’s not the reason for this post. In the days to come, I think I will best remember not the horrible events but the humans who took action and jumped in to help. And if you saw any of the video footage from the event, you know there were a lot of them!
And I don’t want any of you to say, “I could never have done that,” because I know lots of you are heroes to us kitties. There was some point in your life — many points for some of you — where you leapt out of your comfort zone to rescue a kitty in distress. Humans who love creatures and their fellow humans will always surprise themselves by taking action when it is needed. So never sell yourself short. If you trust your heart, you will always do the right thing.
Paws up to the rescue workers and volunteers who helped save lives yesterday. And paws up to you too, because I know you have the same strength and heart inside of you.
