In the animal world, some are able to set aside their natural differences. Perhaps we humans could take a lesson from a blind and hard of hearing chocolate lab and a cat named “Pudicat”. It is well known that cats usually do not like dogs. I have seen this unusual situation even with my golden retriever, Gracie, and a neighbor cat…now deceased. Gracie would be laying outside the door and “Patches” would come up to her. Ever so gently, Patches would tip-toe between Gracie’s legs…maneuver a bit and lay down between Gracie’s paws. Gracie never tried to move her…or pull away. They would lay there for a very long time. Usually it was Patches who would get up and travel along her way.
In the video below, you’ll notice the words...vulnerable.…sensing….which says to us to be more keenly aware of the vulnerable around us…sense their needs and do something about it if we can…just like “Pudicat”.
