The current classes I am taking have me looking back at instances where children expressed empathy or compassion towards animals.
A group of us had spent hours trying to catch this one cat. Finally the cat went into the courtyard of this boys home. The mother allowed us to come in and place traps in the courtyard. Later that day we came back to find the cat had not attempted to go near the traps.
After explaining to the boy that we were trying to help the cat and all the animals in the area he began to coax the cat with food. It only took the boy a matter of minutes to catch a cat we had been trying to catch for hours.
