I'm having a tough day. My day at work has been one of the most disturbing I've ever had. A wild cat was brought to our shelter to be put to sleep.... he looked so good from behind.. really shiny and healthy. And then he turned around. The poor creature had no face. He had an aggressive form of cancer that had literally eaten away his nose and top lip. He was so scared and in so much pain. He wanted - and tried to - miaow several times, but he could only make this gut-wrenching bubbling noise from the holes where his nose used to be. Everything else was just a bloody, gorey mess. I've never felt so heartborken for a creature my whole life... I'm so glad he's somewhere where he can't hurt any more.
