And that when we care for those who cannot care for themselves we are entitled to nothing more than the knowledge that an otherwise unwanted animal is protected from the cruelty of both the world and its inhabitants and the seemingly arbitrary hand it is dealt by fate.
After several months, despite diligent administration of his medication, the seizures became more frequent and more violent. I continued the ritual of cleaning and soothing talk afterward, but there was nothing but pain and fear for Gustave as he sat in my lap, trembling and on edge as if trying unsuccessfully to shake off a nightmare.
And all I could do was sit with him in my lap and love him. And whether or not he knew it or cared was irrelevant to my understanding of what it meant to be his caretaker. But after one especially harrowing episode, he looked into my eyes and I into his as we sat on the kitchen floor, each of us recovering in our own way. There was not affection in his gaze, but there was recognition that I was not an enemy.
Some sense that there might be someone in the world who wanted to help him. That maybe not every card in the hand he was dealt was rotten. And that to take even a bit of fear out of his life was something to gently celebrate. As his condition deteriorated and it became clear that his life was a nearly constant state of misery, we returned to the shelter where he came from for guidance from the vet, though I knew well in advance what they would tell me.
The staff offered comfort and support for which I was grateful, but the overwhelming feeling was still utter failure. In the four years since, I have come to realize that success in rescue animal companionship is not measured by how much they end up loving you but by the simple fact that you stood by them when others would or could not. That you recognized that they were independent beings with heartbreaking histories over which you might have no control to alter for the better. And that by being present for them, you made good on the promise of unconditional care and love, which is the birthright of even the least adoptable cat in the shelter.
