Tell Us Your Kindness Story
The lady and the cat

A older woman was walking the cobble streets in Italy one morning, when she stumbled across a hairless cat in a box down a ally. The woman had something in common with the cat because she was hairless from an old sickness. The day was cold, and grey the little cat was shivering in his loose skin. the old woman saw the pain, and hardship in the little green feline eyes. Without a second thought the woman pulled of her furry coat and carefully traded her synthetic hair to the cat. The woman opened her arms as too not frighten the cat, and the cat reluctantly curled into her lap meowing. With care and a understanding stronger than words the woman wrapped the warm and heavy coat around the cats pink skin. The woman sat there with the cat until nightfall and the little creature was sound asleep. The two beings were both born into a life they could not change, but they used their hurt, and pain to bring joy and love to the others lives.

  • Kindness is just light in one soul touching another. As in the story, the woman’s soul was touched and started a chain reaction.
