Big Burly Bearded Man Rescues Tiny Kitten at 3 a.m.

When the topic of animals comes up, people will often discuss the profound impact that their pets have had on their lives. Animals can teach us how to care for other living creatures, how to interact with living beings that do not speak our languages, and how to be responsible for the life of another living being. What is often overlooked, however, is that animals can teach us how to be better to each other.

When thinking of someone who is passionate about animal welfare, the image that comes to mind may be of a more affectionate, sensitive individual. However, having respect for the lives of others is not a trait restricted to any one group. This fact is highlighted by stories like the one of Kitten Inn, a rescue in New Zealand.

Susan McNair, who runs the rescue, was reminded of the fact that compassion comes in all shapes and sizes when a visitor arrived at the rescue one night. At 3 a.m., McNair answered the door to find a Harley-driving, tattooed, bearded biker. Incredibly, the man proceeded to remove a tiny kitten from his pocket in order to leave it with the rescue. The juxtaposition certainly caught McNair by surprise.

The biker preferred not to have his name published, but told McNair how he came to find the kitten. Apparently, he witnessed the poor feline being mistreated at a party. Deciding that the cat deserved better, he brought it to the nearest rescue. Amazingly, he also provided $100 to help cover the cost of care.

This anonymous hero is the perfect reminder that we ought not judge each other based on appearances. While one might assume this man to be an aggressive, rough individual, he is in reality filled with kindness and generosity. McNair and the others at the rescue were so touched that they named the kitten Harley after her savior’s bike. Harley is now a healthy and happy cat, and she could still probably fit inside the man’s pocket.
