|PLAYA CONCHAS CHINAS - 13 DE SEPTIEMBRE|
Sultry, but not steamy weather when I arrived Tuesday in Vallarta after two-and-a-half weeks away. Skies alternate between blue with blossoms of white clouds or scattered grey rain clouds. The air is still moving and rainfalls are sometimes torrential.
|PLUMERIA TREE - DIAMOND HEAD, HONOLULU|
After visiting family in foggy and cold San Francisco, I flew to Honolulu to spend time with my mother, who lives on Diamond Head.
Every morning before dawn I walk up the gently sloping hill, past
stately old palms planted on grassy parks. As I watch more than a dozen small, squawking green parents flying from tree to tree, I breathe in deeply the heady perfume of the white blossoms of plumeria trees. Soon, I arrive at the the grey, stone wall where a round, tan, bare-chested man from Seattle named John arrives every morning at four to feed three dozen discarded cats.
|SUNRISE ON DIAMOND HEAD - COCO HEAD IN THE DISTANCE|
At home, I saw one of our cats staring at something on one of bathroom shelves where towels are stacked. At the very back of the lowest shelf was something small, furry and brown curled up in a corner. Moving towels out of the way, I could see it was a tiny baby possum baring small, sharp teeth. Wrapping it up in a hand towel, I took it to Sabueso´s, where Dr. Eva picked it up by its tail and confirmed it was a well-fed male. The baby possum was taken to Rehabilitación y rescate de fauna Silvestre CALEV A.C.,where it will stay until old enough to release into the wild.

|CLÍNICA EN BARRIO SANTA MARÍA|
Barrio (neighborhood) Santa María is a fifteen-minute drive northeast of centro, close to the canal off of the tunnel road (el libramiento). The clinic took place in the mobile clinic owned by and parked in front of the government offices of Asistencia Animal/Ecología. Next to the small office building in this quiet neighborhood is a grassy park, small playground and bandstand. An attractive mercado is nearby.
|PARQUE EN BARRIO SANTA MARIA|
Thursday was my first clinic visit since the first clinic day in Pitillal on August 16th. Puddles of water were still on the cobbled streets in Santa María after Wednesday evening´s torrential rainfall. I was there to see (Santa) Elena arrive with thirteen cats and dogs from the nearby state of Nayarit. Elena said she would have brought more, but there was no more space in the truck.
Early Thursday morning I took our two dogs for a walk and a romp and a swim for myself at Conchas Chinas beach. A thin, medium size, black and white female dog joined us. Her teats indicated she had been a recent mother, and I asked the beach cleaners if the dog had an owner. "No, she´s a beach dog." (This is a beach that has no restaurants or food vendors).

Los animales no necesitan tener una camada para completar su ciclo vital, puesto que no existe una relación consciente con la reproducción como parte necesaria de su bienestar emocional.
