Hope Gone Viral – Story of a Little Black Cat

In late November 2016, we rescued a little black cat. We named him ‘Kuro’, which means dark/black in Japanese. Baby Kuro, at 2 months old, was found trapped in the middle of a roundabout under a heavy downpour rain. His body was half drowned in a puddle, only hoping for luck not to be hit by any cars.

Summarizing my April – Working and working and working; all around the clock, after office hours, on weekends and even during medical leave. Needless to say if I’m filthy rich, I’ll just walk off. But I guess I’m not, and commitments were the explicit reason for the suffering. Nevertheless, gratitude should always come first.

Dear April, what happened to you?
