The other day, Gillian Rogers was riding home on the New York City subway when a man sitting in the same train car caught her eye — and, in an instant, lifted her spirit. In fact, she saw something that was so amazing she took pictures and shared them with the world.
Gillian Rοgers was on her way home when she encountered a scene that touched her heart and enlightened her. Riding on a train in New York, she saw a man seated in one of the corner seats and carrying a tiny kitten. Resting in the stranger’s lap was a tiny kitten, wrapped in a towel.
“He was bottle-feeding her,” Rοgers said, amazed at the sight. “You could see the caring. My heart felt like it was going to explοde to see someone with that much caring. He was sο at the moment.”
The man seemed to be oblivious to his surroundings and did not divert his attention to anything else but the little kitten. Rogers felt the warmth and tenderness of the scene in front of her.
After watching the man for a bit, Rogers knew she couldn’t leave the train without finding out more — so she approached the man to ask about how he’d met the kitten.
“We had a chat,” she said. “He told me he’d found the kitten alone between two buildings.”
Rather than leave the kitten there to fend for herself, the man had rescued her, taking it upon himself to keep her cozy and fed.
This was a stray kitten that was completely helpless and alone, so this man decided to take care of her and make sure that she was comfortable, well-fed, and safe.
“The kitten was looking up at him as he fed her,” Gillian told. “It was so heartwarming. I told him, ‘Thank you.’”
And soon, that feeling had spread; after Rogers posted about her encounter online, pictures of the kind man and the kitten quickly went viral.
The pure love and compassion on display seemed to speak to people on a deeper level and lifted their spirits in the same way Rogers’s mood had been elevated.
