Flame has a SEVERELY BROKEN PELVIS, TAIL, and LEG/ELBOW (with BONE EXPOSED and jutting through her skin)… as well as… possible HEAD TRAUMA. She has significant eye injury. She will be in the hospital at least through the weekend and seeing an orthopedist/other specialists on Monday morning for SURGERY and REHABILITATION next steps. She is on long-acting pain medication, IV fluids, and antibiotics
Despite all of this, Flame continues to win over all of her caregivers with her incredibly SWEET DISPOSITION, POSITIVE ATTITUDE, and WILL TO LIVE. She is bright and alert… and super affectionate. She is trying to walk but just can’t put any weight on her limbs…. yet. So, she drags her body around. And, anyone that visits her, well, Flames showers them in kisses and headbutts.
Every life matters. Every life deserves a chance.

photos of sakurajima, the most active volcano in japan, by (click pic) takehito miyatake (previously featured) and martin rietze. volcanic storms can rival the intensity of massive supercell thunderstorms, but the source of the charge responsible for this phenomenon remains hotly debated.
in the kind of storm clouds that generate conventional lightning, ice particles and soft hail collide, building up positive and negative charges, respectively. they separate into layers, and the charge builds up until the electric field is high enough to trigger lightning.
but the specific mechanism by which particles of differing charges are separated in the ash cloud is still unknown. lightning has been observed between the eruption plume and the volcano right at the start of an eruption, suggesting that there are processes that occur inside the volcano to lead to charge separation.
volcanic lightning could yield clues about the earth’s geological past, and could answer questions about the beginning of life on our planet. volcanic lightning could have been the essential spark that converted water, hydrogen, ammonia, and methane molecules present on a primeval earth into amino acids, the building blocks of life.
