The story of how Rainbow’s life began is not widely known. She was the initial kitten to be born in a litter of five, and as is typical for first-borns, she struggled during birth due to being the first to pass through the birth canal. This was indeed the case for Rainbow, who had difficulty breathing upon delivery. Fortunately, my mother was there to assist with the birth, and even though I was extremely emotional, she persevered and revived Rainbow after a considerable amount of time. By holding her head under cold water and continuing the revival process, Rainbow eventually began breathing again. I could hardly believe it when I saw her heart beating and heard her first soft purr. In the following days, we were constantly worried about whether Rainbow would continue to thrive, but she did just that! She grew into a joyful and lively cat, and now when I see her, I am filled with gratitude that her life was spared.
