we took to the woods

Kitten pulled through! Home again. Formula One fever has so gripped Singapore that the vet explained Timbo’s quick rebound in these terms: an adult cat is like a bus, with reserves of strength and energy to draw on but a lumbering slow recovery time. A kitten is more like a racing Ferrari; enormous metabolism and a very small gas tank — no reserves. Survival questions are decided by the kitten’s body in mere hours. Please gods (Ganesh, I’m talking to you) keep all our small ones, human and animal, safe from now on.

The sea storm soaked the camera, and another is on order from the US, so there will be no images to post for a couple of weeks.
