I believe in superheroes. Not the one who flies, with fast speed, or alien powers kind. I believe that there’s a superhero inside every person that’s waiting to be unleashed. If you don’t believe me, the story of Shon the Catman might convince you. Let’s find out how he became a superhero without even realizing it.
People, animals, trees, plants, flowers, we all need a superhero. I mean the urban chaos, pollution, and all things life may hurt us from time to time. It’s a relief if there’s someone to protect us or save us from the pain, destruction, or loneliness that’s waiting by our door.
But when I say superhero, I don’t mean to refer to the ones we see in the movies or TV series. I am referring to beings who possess a golden heart and use their skills to help others. Superheroes for me are those who make use of their strength and abilities to assist the ones in need without asking for anything in return.
By my own definition of a superhero, maybe you can brand yourself as one if you are someone who cares for the welfare of all things living. I really think that you don’t need a special superpower to be a superhero. You just have to have the heart and good intentions in helping and sharing the good to everyone. Which is exactly what Shon Griffin, the 5-year-old Catman, had in his young heart, the willingness to help street cats.
In a report by the ABC News, Shon’s aunt, Kris Papiernik shared that they call Shon Catman for he has an amazing gift when it comes to connecting with cats. Apparently, the boy showed an impressive ability in earning a cat’s trust when he was just three years old.
As per Papiernik, they realized that the boy had an astonishing connection with felines back when she and her fiance had a hard time dealing with a feral cat named Bug. A few years ago, the couple rescued two cats on the streets, which they named Lady and Bug. Lady, like the rest of their rescue kitties, was very cooperative. She was spayed and was given shots just as fine.
