I thought I would TRY to share a picture of Bitty...

She was born on Saturday and weighed 50 grams- I have never seen nor had a live kitten born this size. She has gained weight and is over 72 grams as of tonight. I am tubing her every two hours and she is with her siblings and moves around like them- so I am hopeful. BUT I am always hopeful :)

Bitty is with her brother in this picture- he is a normal size kitten at 4 days of age when the picture was taken.

Edited to add: Bitty is really going downhill this evening... I know you cannot save them all, but this makes me so sad. I am already in love with this little tyke...

I am all for help- hahahaha. I am so bleary eyed and exhausted after this last week. One of my dogs started obedience class at 8 AM after I was up until 4 AM deliving Bitty and her siblings- I thought I was going to die!

This is the last litter from this Momma and I really hope Bitty manages to beat the odds and ends up living a long healthy life. I already love her- she is spunky and cute :)

Sigh... Of course, I share her picture and check on her to feed her and she looks like she is headed towards the Rainbow Bridge... I really had hopes for her since she had stuck with me for a week. Sigh...

Bitty, I love you regardless of whether you stay here or go to the Bridge... I am so glad I got to kiss you and know you while you were here...

I pray that Bitty was just small and needs some time to catch up. I pray that with all my heart....but I completely understand the gut wrenching feelings you're having. If she has to go, Baby T-Rex and my Itty Bit will show her the way across the Bridge. I'm also glad you got a chance to kiss her and tell her she was loved.

She passed out of this world last night... I am so sad and exhausted by everything... I knew that due to her size, I was probably fighting a losing battle, but she seemed really quite 'normal' for the first four days of life and then last night, she went downhill really fast. I guess that's a blessing though- she didn't have to linger on and suffer.

Thank you guys, so much though, for enjoying her with me. She was a special little girl.

And Suzi, I had thought of you and T-Rex last night... I had seen his video on the boards and he reminded me of Bitty.

I am so sorry for your loss. She was lucky to have received such wonderful care during her short time here on earth. I am sure you'll see her again one day on the other side of rainbow bridge, and she will thank you for the love and kindness you showed her.
