We all know the world can be a crazy place, and sometimes, even when you do everything right, it can still fail. That's life. That's why we have friends, and sometimes strangers, who lend a helping hand. (Even if we hiss and scratch at the time.)
Be brave enough to show a random act of kindness all the times you can.
Mewchio Kaku was the first rescue kitten of 2015. (That year, they were all named for physicists.) He was barely a few days old, cold, unresponsive, covered in his own "dirt", and the infected eye was the least of his troubles. He had a better chance of being attacked by a shark while winning the lottery than surviving another few days. We did our best and made him warm and comfortable, but figured he wouldn't last long.
Woah, were we wrong! By week 2, he was posing for the camera. And a year later, he is still terrorizing the barn yard. Testing the boundaries of physics is this cat's game.
I look back on Mewchio, Neil deCat Tyson, and the others that pulled through in 2015. It’s a chance to be thankful for the things that were going right in the universe. Or was that the year to lock yourself in the bathroom with a glass of wine. I forget.
The first rescue of 2016 is already here. Back to work.
