Near the beginning of the new year, I wrote a post about my one-eyed cat. Click here to read that post.
The cat, Archie, looked like he'd gone through some sort of fight that left his left eye ever closed. When I opened his eyelid, I saw nothing but pus and blood. I was convinced he'd lost the eye for good.
After I came back to college following the winter break, my parents took Archie to a vet. The vet worked his antibiotic magic, and soon, Mom and Dad were able to send me new pics.
I could not believe it. His eye is still a little cloudy, but it looks like he's well on his way to recovery.
The message behind the post I wrote at the beginning of the year was simple. Be like an animal and don't fret about things you can't control. Don't let outside circumstances affect your personality or who you are. Be true to yourself.
And look. That cat made it out of his trial.
So can you.
