Meet Sir Stuffington, an one eyed kitty who survived a raccoon attack and was saved by a kind person along with his 2 brothers. “His feral litter was attacked by a raccoon, mom and one baby didn’t make it,” said his foster mom.
When he was turned into Multnomah County Animal Services, they discovered that he had calicivirus, a severe flea infestation, a heart murmur, a missing eye and a possible jaw fracture that has since healed. He was left with a smile resembling a pirate – a cute pirate that he is.
HIS EYE PATCH!! AHHHHHHHHH MY HEART IS BURSTING
What a tough little bugger. :)
“The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. …
Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity — in all this vastness — there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.”
