Recovery journey of Little Black…

 

Look at him, he look healthy and "handsome"...

Look at him, he look healthy and “handsome”……

Yesterday, We brought him to visit Vet again to check on his “Fungal” condition, how long he need to consume medication. Good news is another one more month to go, hopefully he can be fully recover!

Little Black with us about 5 months now, however he has been sick and started medication about 4 months. Most of his childhood time is sick, grow up with the medication. Even though in such a condition, he shown us the strength to live, he never cry (meow) no matter how bad was his nose condition, he still live his life happily and playing joyfully with his e-collar and also medication.

This is the great attitude we can learned, when we are sick, our body in agony and pain, do you start complain? Grumble? Blame? Reject? and keep asking “Why me?”

Do not let our mind in pain and suffering too. Why we need to endure “double pain” from body and mind?

Accept it, let our body to be healed and our mind to be in relax and peace.

Look closely to his nose, how uncomfortable, how painful!

Look closely to his nose, How swollen, how uncomfortable, how painful! He is still facing life in positive attitude!

Our heart also bleeding, look at his nose condition.

Our heart also bleeding…..

I salute and respect my mother for her care and also compassion towards Little Black, she is nursing him everyday. After feeding the medication, she will use a warm damp towel to clean up Little Black. As such, Little black is so clean and his fur is so soft too.

My mum mixed the medication with vitamins, she feed him every day...

My mum mixed the medication with vitamins, she feed him every day…

Mum look after “Little black” like her own little baby, she never differentiate whether he is a cat or a human, the unconditional mother love shared without differentiation in any form. How noble!

Imagine if we can treat all beings with unconditional love, do you think there is any misunderstanding, any argument, any discrimination, any war, any hatred, happen around you?

Start from yourself to give your unconditional love like the mother give to her only child to all beings!

Feel the difference in your surrounding!

The essence of love and compassion is understanding, the ability to recognize the physical, material, and psychological suffering of others, to put ourselves “inside the skin” of the other. We “go inside” their body, feelings, and mental formations, and witness for ourselves their suffering. Shallow observation as an outsider is not enough to see their suffering. We must become one with the subject of our observation. When we are in contact with another’s suffering, a feeling of compassion is born in us. Compassion means, literally, “to suffer with.”
