Dead Kitten

Yesterday, coming home from work...I drove past a dead kitten. I was not the only one...many commuters did the same thing.

Yet, no one did anything...just went about their daily commute.

Again, today, on my way home I drove by the kitten.

I could not stand another commute home seeing it.

So I went back to spot where it lay on the side of road, using a shoebox from 'Rag and Bone', and I scooped it up into the box.

Tears ran down my face..

Its blood left a perfect imprint of its body on the asphalt after I pushed him into the box.

I took the shoe box and placed it in the median where the wildflowers bloom ever year.

Have we no mercy for anything but ourselves?
