“It’s what we can do for them,” Qingying responded as he scratched the cat’s back. The kitten pawed at Sabah’s shoe.

He lifted up his foot slightly and it chased his boot. Somehow, he managed to make this look very Serious And Stoic.

Qingying smiled and then called his friend, putting her on speaker so Sabah could hear. New York was not a small city and Karen's house was not nearby. Another person who was also a part of the cat rescue network lived nearer, but they had taken their kittens to the vet. Qingying informed her that Sabah had an appointment at the hospital, and he couldn’t stay, either.

Karen reassured them that she would try to arrive as soon as possible, and they ended the call. By then, the kitten had pressed itself against Sabah’s leg and wound around him several times.

Sabah remained, considering they had some time before he had to present himself at the hospital, and stood with his arms crossed, a neutral expression plastered on his face. He gave Qingying a nod once he hung up the phone, and sternly watched the animal.

Sabah nodded at it formally.

Qingying chuckled softly and ran his fingers through the mother cat’s fur as she pressed herself into his palm. While making sure she wasn’t distressed, he reached out with his other hand to gently stroke her kitten.

“You seem used to people, hm?” He addressed the little one. “I wonder if you two were abandoned, and what happened to your siblings?” He could tell there were no traces of them on the mother and kitten pair.

“Perhaps you’d like to give it some attention?” Qingying smiled up at Sabah and indicated the kitten, which hadn’t taken its eyes off of the bigger man.

He gave a minute shake of his head.

“Okay,” Qingying responded with an easy smile. He began to look back down at the kitten when he blinked and brought his gaze up to Sabah again. “You’re not allergic, are you?”

He nodded, and then gave the mother cat some water as well. “Have you had any pets before? Cats?” He asked as he watched the kitty drink.

He looked a little zoned out for a second and then abruptly jerked his head to the left. "No."

He looked over his shoulder and tilted his head, and then held out the bottle with a bright smile. “Would you like some water?”

The corner of Sabah's mouth twitched faintly in response and he took it, balancing it between the forearm of his damaged arm and his chest to twist off the cap with his good hand. He took a very small sip before replacing it. "Time for me to go," he said after consulting his watch. It was close to 1:00 PM, and thus his appointment, which he still didn't realize was with the man he was speaking to.

Yeah Qingying didn’t help much with letting him know.

“Mhm… Me too,” he murmured as he gazed at the cats. He wasn't willing to leave, though! What if they ran away again like Sabah had said.
He turned around while standing up, and withdrew a business card from within his clothing. He offered it to Sabah with both hands.

On it was written his name, his role, and the hospital where he worked.

He glanced down at it, then back up at Qingying. "See you inside," he murmured simply after gazing down at the kittens momentarily. He made his way back up the path toward the rehabilitation building,

“Wait wait wait wait,” Qingying raised his voice very slightly to ‘call’ after him. “I need to come too, but I can’t leave them.” He looked down at the cats. “What if they run – uh, what if something happens to them?”

After a short pause, while slipping one hand under the mother cat, he used his other hand to give Karen another call.
“I’m going to take them to the hospital – meet us at the West gate," he spoke into the phone.

He picked up the mother cat, supporting her with both hands, and looked over at Sabah. He'd seen him scoop up the kitten earlier. “Can you take the kitten?”

Sabah crouched down and scooped it up in his good hand gently. "I have it." It was wriggling a bit, so he trapped it against his chest and it reached its claws up to 'hug' him.

Qingying smiled at that and quickened a few steps to walk beside Sabah and let the mother cat be nearer to her kitten. They made their way to the car park at the west gate, and a lady waved at them as she emerged from her car.

“Hey!” She greeted as her brown curls bounced just above her shoulders. A lady with short blonde hair smiled as she exited the door on the other side.

“This is Karen and Claire,” Qingying introduced them, gesturing with an upwards-facing palm first at the brown-haired lady and then the blonde-haired one. “Together they form ‘Karing Cats’,” he said cheerfully.

“So these are the little ones, hm?” Karen focused on the felines, and Claire went closer to Sabah to examine the kitten.

He held it out to her after a moment. "This is the kitten," he confirmed in his serious, broody tones.

“Hmm. We should take her to the vet to check for a chip,” Karen said while looking at the mother cat, and went to retrieve a carrier from the car as Claire introduced herself to the kitten.

“Do you want to leave your number?” Qingying asked Sabah. “This way they can keep you updated. If she has an owner, Karen and Claire will keep them until they’re collected. If she doesn’t have a chip, they’ll check lost pets listings and call shelters to see if anyone is looking.”

Claire nodded. “We have room right now, so if no one comes forward, we’ll take care of them and then rehome them both.”

"Okay," Sabah nodded, and he recited his phone number for her. "Thank you both."

“No problem!” Karen replied brightly before offering Qingying the carrier so he could put the mother cat inside.
“Thank you, too,” Claire said with a smile to Sabah as Karen came over to let him put the kitten inside as well.

Sabah watched. SERIOUSLY. With SERIOUSNESS. Once he was assured the kittens were safely inside, he gave them both a SERIOUS NOD OF SERIOUSNESS and then turned to head into the hospital for his appointment.

They said their goodbyes, and Qingying walked to Sabah’s side.
“This way,” he invited, and led him through corridors and doors until they reached the correct waiting room.

“Have a seat,” he offered. “You’ll be called in a few minutes.” Qingying then disappeared through some more doors.

A few minutes later, he returned, having changed out of hanfu into appropriate clothes (lacking in gigantic sleeves that’d get caught in everything), introduced himself once more, and guided Sabah into his treatment room. After they both took a seat, Qingying reconfirmed whether he was to help Sabah with his wrist.
