This brings up some questions as to the veracity of the Law of Karma. According to many, the Law of Karma is not like a social law that can be broken successfully, and with impunity, on occaision, because it depends on people to enforce it, and they don't always enforce it well, but more like a scientific law, which cannot be broken, because breaking it would simply be outside the nature of reality. Supposedly The law of Karma cannot be broken any more than the Laws of Physics.
Are people mistaken about the law of Karma being immutable, or is this an example where the person who helped the cat got what the law of Karma would predict they would get? Can someone help me out with regard to what happened here? Seems that either I should avoid contact with cats, or if I want to help cats, I would need to reject the law of Karma, and insist that and that the idea is just religious make-believe and not worthy of respect.
