The suffering of animals may sometimes stir up strong feelings in humans, serving as a reminder of the frailty of life and the value of compassion.
A heartbreaking image of a sad cat left to fend for itself after being painted blue took place at an abandoned market. The animal quickly came to represent hopelessness.
Those who observed this cat’s tale were moved to tears and inspired a group effort to lessen its suffering and provide a better future for it.
Imagine yourself strolling through a deserted market, with just the sound of your footfall to break the stillness. You see a little person among the barren booths.
It’s a cat, its once-vibrant hair now a canvas of hopelessness, painted an unusual shade of blue. When you see how deeply abandoned the cat is and how much hardship it experiences on its own, the scene is heartbreaking and tears start to fill up in your eyes.
