It’s often said that you never know what to expect on the subway, especially in a big city such as New York City. At times, it’s something that makes you quickly turn in the other direction, but that wasn’t the case when Gillian Roberts was on her way home one day. In fact, she saw something that was so amazing she took pictures and shared them with the world.
Gillian Rοgers was on her way home when she encountered a scene that touched her heart and enlightened her. Riding on a train in New York, she saw a man seated in one of the corner seats and carrying a tiny kitten. Resting in the stranger’s lap was a tiny kitten, wrapped in a towel.
“He was bottle-feeding her,” Rοgers said, amazed at the sight. “You could see the caring. My heart felt like it was going to explοde to see someone with that much caring. He was sο at the moment.”
The man seemed to be oblivious to his surroundings and did not divert his attention to anything else but the little kitten. Rogers felt the warmth and tenderness of the scene in front of her.
After watching the man for a bit, Rogers knew she couldn’t leave the train without finding out more — so she approached the man to ask about how he’d met the kitten.
“We had a chat,” she said. “He told me he’d found the kitten alone between two buildings.”
Rather than leave the kitten there to fend for herself, the man had rescued her, taking it upon himself to keep her cozy and fed.
This was a stray kitten that was completely helpless and alone, so this man decided to take care of her and make sure that she was comfortable, well-fed, and safe.
“The kitten was looking up at him as he fed her,” Gillian told. “It was so heartwarming. I told him, ‘Thank you.’”
Soon, Rogers’ stop arrived and she had to leave before she could ask the man his name. But despite parting ways as strangers, simply witnessing the man’s loving spirit had left Rogers’ day transformed.
“It was truly a special moment. When I got off the train, I felt like I was walking on air,” Rogers said. “I felt joyful — like, it renewed my faith in humanity. There are still decent people out there.”
