It’s been a week. We had a big typhoon that caused our wifi to go down for three days and the power to go out for almost 24 hours. Then we had one day without rain, and I found an abandoned 8-week-old kitten by the cemetery — I’ve rescued many puppies and kittens from the nearby cemetery because people often abandon them to die there. The kitten was sick and required round the clock care, so I didn’t have time to write a post yesterday. Animal rescue is a full-time job for me here, and I have many high needs active rescues right now. Then this morning we got hit with another storm and our children’s library flooded again. We’re looking at another 2-3 days of rain. There is widespread flooding and landslides throughout the town so we’re all on high alert.
I hope you’re having a better week! Here are some interesting parenting links from around the web this week!
