    The art of resuscitation

    Highland medical procedures

    Here you can see a fine veterinarian giving CPR to a cat that has been trapped in a cloth satchel. You can see that he has devised an ingenious way to give artificial respiration through a large straw and he is gently squeezing and releasing the bag to help keep the poor felines heart beating.

    While it is wonderful that he is able to keep the poor kitten alive using this method, it must be quite painful as there is a most incredible wailing that comes from the air outlet tubes you can see attached to the top of the satchel.

    I'm not quite sure why a male veterinarian would be wearing a skirt unless it is to keep his pants legs from becoming dirty while walking through fields to tend to ill animals.

    Just remember, what goes up....

    The games are for those strong enough to throw extremely heavy objects straight up in the air. (though I believe were I this gent, I would be moving a bit more swiftly from the landing zone that he appears to be....)
