I had some bad news today, the vet called and informed me that my placid cat Felix had been badly savaged by a dog. The injury was so bad that he has had to have one of his back leg amputated.
This morning he bounded out of the house and by the afternoon Felix was close to death and he would need to have his leg amputated. A few hours changed everything.
This way or that way
It’s shocking to think you take the wrong turn into one back garden and you end up being attacked by a dog, if you went the other way, you will end up unharmed.
We are animals, life can be brutal, we can get a disease, runover, killed. The domestication can make us forget how fragile everything is. With life comes death. In 2019 I worried about whether I should buy the new kindle, should I I buy another book.
In 2020 we have coronavirus which can kill and there is no cure. Peoples businesses disappeared overnight. I have had to stay in my house for the last 5 weeks, only allowed to walk for 1 hour a day.
Decisions have a big influence on our lives but so do circumstances and luck play a part.
We don’t know what tomorrow will bring, so make the best of today
