kitten update and another round of thanks

Yesterday was a good day for the raccoon-mauled kitten. He had more energy and got up off the couch, even playing with a pipe cleaner and climbing the stairs by himself. He ate independently, and his face looks more like a regular kitten's than a horror movie outtake. Today he's supposed to see the vet again to get his seroma drained again and his stitches on his surgical drain checked. I personally think this surgical drain is not working and another one should be put in, but I am not a vet.

The donations continued to come in, with another $115 in donations and pledges, bringing us to a total of $370, which leaves me only $30 out of pocket for the little mauled kitten's vet bills. Thank you, my darlings. I cannot express how much I appreciate this. It really makes the Sober Husband and I feel supported with this kitten rescue volunteer work, and that especially has an impact on the husband.

A huge thank you to Thi in Texas, 2AM, Steve "Vacas Magras", Carol "Marketer", and Sena "Pieho," as well as Zim, Silliyak, Hughman, Michelle in SoCal, Alison in New Zealand, Missy, Joyce, Captain Steve, and Lee in Oregon. Smooches to all from your old Drunken Husewife.

"Midnight, not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan
Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again
Every street lamp seems to beat
A fatalistic warning
Someone mutters and a streetlamp gutters
And soon it will be morning
Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn’t give in
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin
Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale cold smell of morning
The streetlamp dies, another night is over
Another day is dawning
Touch me, it’s so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me, you’ll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun"

Sing it DH!

Oh, wow! I've been gone for awhile and feel like I've missed SO much!!

I volunteered for a kitten rescue for years when I lived in San Francisco ... you are doing such great work!!!

And I'm so glad to read kitty is going better, and inspired to read about the generosity of your readers!!!

I hate ALW, shudder. I want to hear about that Miss Saigon story, though, Hughman.

I promise I will put up audio of me singing. I promise. It may take a few days, though.
