Any day with Thai cuisine was much better instantaneously.
Thestrals by the droves, she saw. Babies, elders… those in their prime. Yes, they were beautiful especially their wings.
Raine upon my lap prior to her eye cleaning.  The only picture of the batch in proper focus so… upload I must… for you tori… for you!

Carrot Slaw with cinnamon and nutmeg atop gluten free bagel bites plus fruit.  I watched my little sister create the salad dish in two hours.  She labored over the organic carrots ensuring they were properly peeled with blemishes removed prior to hand shredding.  She modified from the call for curry and celery seed to create a less savory yet satisfying Cinnamon dish.  Good for inflammation?  It created a smile upon my face to hear her say she would not be a chef… but a baker!  Regardless, I love when she creates food or otherwise.

Angel Lannister, the Blind kitten with  feline viral rhinopneumonitis.  He is out of surgery today and I expect he will be purrfection soon.  Sometimes the debt of FVR is an eye, and a Lannister always pays their debts?  I do not mean distaste within my reference, I am simply getting creative with my coping to understand the sickness surrounding me.  I dedicate my time to ensure this little one is alright.  He has a home in sight and a one eyed friend awaiting him.  Blind cats can have enhanced senses of other sorts and they really are a pleasure to adopt.  Keep that in mind!  You will be rich with love if ever you adopt a precious cat as such… Angel Lannister shall do well in life.

A piece of me and the kitty to rule them all?  Raine, the kitten who lived.  Just so much nerd in me I don’t know where to go… I know I adore this very proper feline.  She is fearless and playful and roars and loves humans and… possibly not a she at all as I am notoriously horrible with assigning gender to kittens. 
A kitten child, a future president of the United States?  I believe you must dream big for what you care for so that great things happen!

She awaited to see if the kittens were blind, she awaited to see. The third eyelid acted as a bandage preventing the reality of the blindness to be viewed. The ointment was changed from one to another and then increased from twice to four times daily. The hope was for little damage; there was great damage. Four blind cats. How blind? In time she would know. Until then she would pray for the best with her actions of care-unrelenting action. She cared to know when the retraction would occur. She hoped for minimal corneal damage, she was told there was much. When the natural bandage was disengaged she hoped to view a different tale. Time does not heal all wounds it can make some more visible. Regardless they were viable. Viable creatures to love all the same. She awaited news and lived with love, love could never wait.
And the blind kitty shall lead the way with the sense of smell it possesses?
And she knew they didn’t speak her language nor she theirs but she knew she didn’t know exactly what was understood and in which ways. So she gasped a half gasp as the scab fell from the eye to reveal an engorged globe covered in blood with a crater of puss at the center. She stopped because she needn’t offend. She stopped because she could not pretend it was anything less than angelic. The only kitten with entirely obscured vision was the only angel consuming the Pâté. A heightened sense of olfactory? Maybe. A renewed sense of accomplished weaning? Definitely. She was relieved to have a strong kitten within her grasp. The strength was needed for the journey soon at hand. The angel must endure. Euthanasia due to impaired vision was not any sort of option.
Her dreams while awake were silly, to counter the nightmares she had whilst slumbering.
The rich man killed whichever dogs happened upon his land. The woman assisted as she could any life she saw.
She wrote people poetry for their birthday’s and she meant every word within the poems. She wrote a poem for a mother of two today and the thank you response hit her superbly. That was not why she wrote. Never for a thank you. She wrote to let the people know how she valued and of their value. She wrote to let the people know she paid attention to the details others were intimidated of. Strong people deserve strong words of admiration upon days of existence celebration,never merely a “Happy Birthday.” All people were strong and deserving. A two word message to celebrate an existence was insincerely weak, that is what she believed.

Flat Chested Kitten and a Rainebow of hope

She was alive for a few weeks and died when she became too weak.

…and no amount of intervention, prayers, massage would allow for endurance.

She opened the door to walk into death. 

Which meant?  5 of 18 alive with the possibility of one more death. 

She should not speculate perhaps yet there was preparedness within the count. 

As soon as she heard of the first litter on the solstice she felt that energy of gloom. 

She understood her best of actions might could do minimal at best. 

If not for the survival of Raine Ishi Solstice she would blame herself.  Raine-bow was a reminder there was hope and it was not her. 

It was internal, it was premature. 

It was what could have occurred to her had her mother not had all of that bed rest plus she the incubator access. 

She had a purpose upon this earth or many and one was to rescue life, even if the ratio was not what she wanted. 

Ratios might not matter because she never gambled? 

Ratios might not matter because she focused upon the love. 

Ratios couldn’t matter or her tears would come and the grey face of Raine needn’t any tears. 

Raine was a tear drop catsoniphied. 

Raine was born on a summer day and she carried all of the hope of life with her. 

Now, if anything happened to Raine… well, she’d cry again.  Wail even.  Because yes, those tiny quadrupeds mattered.

Some meals are best enjoyed alone and then when the others eat, I smile.
And the seven living went down to six; Atelectasis.
Perhaps only five will remain.
This summer has been…
this summer has been:
Life affirming and professionally confrontational
to people spouting false mission statements.
