For my 11th post for the Blogging A to Z Challenge, I did a photo essay on Karuna, my friend’s little Persian mix kitten. Karuna came to stay for a few days, so she became my model. Karuna (in both Pali and Sanskrit) means compassion. It is an important concept in all schools of Buddhism.
K for Karuna
Karuna the Kitten
This is the first time I have been up-close with a Persian mix kitten. She is docile, gentle and quiet. She does not meow! But she purrs like a car engine, which I find amusing. 🙂
Karuna was rescued from the side of a highway late at night. She came bundled with conjunctivitis and ear mites, but is steadily on the road to recovery. 🙂
She looks beautiful after being cleaned up and nursed back to health. A hyper ball of fluff.
People should be more responsible in caring for their pets, and not dump kittens and puppies beside the road when they have more than enough to handle. It is better to spay/neuter pets from the very beginning to curb this kind of problem.
