Inspired by . . . those eyes

 

ThoseEyes

 

Angels with whiskers? Maybe. Kitty, as she is affectionately called, is a gift from God. She is proof {one of many in my life} of His intimate care of me. His inexplicable attention to every detail of my life.

Kitty is handicapped. The joints in her legs and hips don't work correctly. She sort of lurches her way around, often pulling her back legs up and over obstacles with the sheer strength of her front legs and claws. It's difficult to watch, even though I know she's not in any pain.

When we first found Kitty, we thought she had been hit by a car. She was dragging herself up an embankment near our home. Another victim of animal dumping in our rural area.

Except she's not a victim, she's a blessing.

Despite her affliction, she keeps herself well-groomed. Her coat is amazingly soft and clean. And she can be extremely fast when she needs to be. As you can imagine, she can't defend herself. Or fend for herself. She was very malnourished when we found her. Knowing she couldn't catch her own food, I began feeding her. And despite the fact that we did not want {or need} another life to care for, the alternatives just weren't an option.

Not when she looks at you with those eyes.

After hearing Kitty's story you might be wondering how she's proof of God's care for me.  Well, I love cats, but I just can't abide their natural instinct to kill other animals. Such as birds and, well, baby rabbits. It broke my heart last year when I had to re-home my best buddy, Aslan, {Thankfully, a sweet friend of mine with four darling little girls took him in - further proof of God's care} after I found him "playing" with a baby rabbit one morning.

 

Kitty can't chase, jump, or sneak up on anyone or anything.

She's the perfect cat for me.

And God knew she would be.

 

Have a wonder-filled day,
