I have a lovely black cat. And yes, besides my bro and my bf, he is my favourite boy. So, to find that someone has broken his sternum by kicking him has broken my heart. He is sweet and friendly. And violence towards animals is a sign of a vicious nasty person. I am sat in the hallway writing this. Chilli has been confined in here a he is not allowed out in case he climbs on anything, which would hurt/damage even more. He is a caged cat. The only door open that he can go through is into the bathroom, where his cat house has been put.

Today is one of those days when I despair of the human race. Of the cruelty of people. And it’s not necessarily just towards animals. But to other people. In the creative industry, the bitchiness and back-stabbing is horrendous, but rife. Models slag off other models. One presumes they are jealous. Photographers slate other photographers work. Clearly, far too egocentric and need to be taken down a peg or too.

But why is this? ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me’. It’s true in one sense, but so false in another. We commit awful acts of physical violence. The stories and allegations made of abuse (tales of Terry Richardson spring to mind). Sometimes, we speak out against this. Other times we keep quiet. Ignore it. Pretend it doesn’t go on. And words do hurt. Words cut like a knife. Sharp and slicing. It’s easy to say that we don’t care, but deep down, we certainly do.

Chilli is fussing round me now. He wants the door to one so he can get out of his confinement. I feel cruel keeping him a captive but know it’s for his own good. I think of the times when maybe I forgot how lucky I was to have him. How he runs to greet you if he is outside when you come home. Or if he is in the house, he waits for you in the windowsill. But alas, none of that for a while now.

Yes, you may think he is only a cat. But this cat can sense when you feel down, he looks to cuddle and comfort. And he is always there.

And yet someone felt it ok to hurt him. Like it’s ok to abuse models because you think you are famous or better than them. Because it’s ok to send vile messages to people from your computer, because you are hidden. Anonymous. You wouldn’t do it face-to-face.

So, let’s stop. No more violence. No more hurt.

And please pray for a speedy recovery for Chilli
