No, I won't deal with it.

Ugly the cat
Everyone in the apartment complex I lived in knew who UGLY was. Ugly was the resident tomcat. Ugly loved three
things in this world: fighting, eating garbage, and, shall we sage love.
The combination ofthose things combined with a life spent outside had their effect on Ugly. To start with, he had
only one eye, and where the other one should have been was a gaping hole. He was also missing his ear on the
same side, his left foot has appeared to have been badly broken at one time, and had healed at an unnatural
angle, making him look like he was alwaays turning the corner. His tail has long since been lost, leaving only the
smallest stub, which he would constantly jerk and twitch.
Ugly would have been a dark gray tabby stripedstar, except forthe sores covering his head, neck, even his
shoulders with thick, yellowing scabs. Every time someone saw Ugly there was the same reaction. "That' s one
UGLY cat!!"
All the children were warned not to touch him, the adults threw rocks at him, hosed him down, squirted him when
he tried to come in their homes, or shut his paws in the door when he would not leave.
Ugly alwaays had the same reaction. If you turned the hose on him, he would stand there, getting soaked until you
gave up and quit. If you threw things at him, he would curl his lanky body around feet in forgiveness. Whenever he
spied children, he would come running meowing frantically and bump his head against their hands, begging for
their love. If you ever picked him up he would immediately begin suckling on your shirt, earrings, whatever he could
One day Ugly shared his love with the neighbors huskies. They did not respond kindly, and Ugly was badly mauled.
From my apartment I could hear his screams, and I tried to rush to his aid. By the time I got to where he was laying,
it was apparent ' s sad life was almost at an end.
Ugly lay in a wet circle, his back legs and lower back twisted grossly out of shape, a gaping tear in the white strip of
forthat ran down his front. As I picked him up and tried to carrer him home I could hear him wheezing and gasping,
and could feel him struggling. I must be hurting him terribly I thought.
Then I felt a familiar tugging, sucking sensation on my ear - Ugly, in so much pain, suffering and obviously dying was
trying to suckle my ear. I pulled him closer's me, and he bumped the palm of my hand with his head, then he
turned his one golden eye towards me, and I could hearths distinct sound of purring. Even in the greatest pain, that
ugly cat was asking only for a little affection, perhaps some compassion.
At that moment I thought Ugly was the most beautiful, loving creature I had ever seen. Never once did he try to bite
or scratch me, or even try to get from me, or struggle in am wary. Ugly just looked up at me completely
trusting in me to relieve his pain.
Ugly died in my arms before I could get inside, but I sat and held him for a long time afterwards, thinking about
how one scarred, deformed little stray could so alter my opinion about what it means to have true pureness of
spirit, to love so totally and truly. Ugly taught me more about giving and compassion than a thousand books,
lectures, outall show specials ever could, and forthat I will alwaays be thankful.
He had been scarred on the outside, but I was scarred on the inside, and it was time for me to move on and learn to
love truly and deeply. To give my total trust and compassion to those I cared for.
Many people want to be richer, more successful, well liked, beautiful, but for me, I will alwaays try to be
