We’ve rescued a stray female cat and admitted her to the Vet for treatment on 24th June 2013 as she was in critical condition.
I followed up closely on her progress, we were so happy to know that she was improving gradually. We’ve visited her every weekend to check on her condition. In order for her to get best recovery, she has been hospitalized.
According to the Vet, her nerve system damaged, it might caused by fallen down or hit by car accident or ??? , she can’t walk properly. She’ll fall down after a few step.
Moreover, she was naturally abortion due to the incident.
Veterinarian was so concern that there might be some fetus left inside her womb.
The best way was to neuter her, to reduce any life threatening risk.
She went through the operation on Monday. She did well. Unfortunately, about noon time today, Vet called and shared with me that she passed away.
Immediately, I ran to the Vet and took her little body home and buried. I did chanting for her…
“May she and the 3 dead fetus be relieved from suffering, not to reborn in 3 lower realm. May them attain enlightenment.”
Life is so fragile.
We did our best to save her life, even though she can’t make it, at least she was in good care in her last moment of life.
Initially, We are thinking to discharge her by this Saturday and get ready a cage as a new home for her as she can’t walk well.
Now, she was gone forever.
This incident taught us that we can plan well and it might not turn out as what we expect.
Accept all changes and expectation in life with calm and peace.
The best way for us to remain calm & peace is to be diligent in spiritual path, practice dhamma when we are facing crisis. How well can you manage and handle the situation!
You know whether you are showing improvement or not.
Another point, it’s not easy to grow up, look at the fetus, they’ve no chance to be born…we need to go through a lot of challenges in life which we might neglect. Be grateful to others who help us directly and indirectly in our growing process. Without their help, you can’t be who you are today. Treasure your life and make good use of your life too, do good deeds which can benefit to others.
During our last visit, she showed her love and friendliness to us, I think she was aware that we save her life. Sis & I were so touch with her little move. Our little animal friends know about love and gratitude, how about us?
See life in all beings, remember that they are just like you & me, they want love, happiness, peace and they are fearful for pain, torturing, dying…
As such, Do your very best to save life and one of the best way is not to eat them, imagine the pain and fear our animal friends need to go through in the dying process.
We take their life to satisfy our sensual desire, our 2-3 inches of throat.
Ask yourself are you causing suffering to them?
Please love them and protect them!
