This is a series of journals recording my days in the Yangtze River Headwaters volunteering project. I will try to update every day but there might be delays in the days I work in the wild without the internet. I’m also trying to write bilingual if time allows. Like it? Follow my Instagram (@anar.chica.yichenguo) for updates!
The work today is morning patrol and on duty for operational nuances. Free time was spent in the post office. The postmen come here every Wednesday so I hurried up to write some postcards.
After a nap at noon, we figured that the cat Mo Jiecao is about to give birth. She was bleeding a little and kept mewing and walking among people. We were all panicked. Some asked their friends whose cats have given birth to kittens before, some asked vet what we should do. A bunch of people are following her to watch out in case she lay somewhere not safe outside. Eventually she smartly hid in a container where people don’t usually go inside. We brought her sleeping box and food bowls inside and then went back to our own duties not disturbing her any more.
We took the opportunity that most of us were in the station to take group photos. The atmosphere of saying goodbye is stronger and stronger. However, no matter how frequently personnels are changing here, the station always stays. While I’m leaving, my dad joined the Green River WeChat group as one of the volunteers starting at 10th August. I’m curious how a retired ‘uncle’ would come along with a group mainly formed by youngsters. But I won’t extend my stay to wait for him since volunteering experience is usually better when one comes alone without acquaintance. I believe he would make good friends with the group because of his hidden funny personality.
