In somewhat same vein of getting weepy at “unexpected help at the last minute”, I get weepy when someone (or animal) in a much weaker position (physically, mentally) tries to give it their all to help someone in need, or complete an impossible task. Weepy just thinking about it now.
I’m not sure what the psychology of that is. Something to do with power dynamics maybe. I have a lot of anger for the powerful in general, especially the idle or cruel.
