:Cry: :Cry: :Cry: When I came home from work this afternoon, I found one of my brand new little tortie girls had died. I try not to get too attached to any of the babies until I know they are going to live...but it just makes me feel so damn sad. Poor little thing. One of the pinkies looks a little skinny, so I gave a little sterile water subQ and gave him a little bit of formula, so hopefully he will perk back up--the other three are looking chubby and content. I just hate losing any of my precious little kits. Keeping my fingers crossed that the rest of them make it.
RIP my little one.:Cry::Cry::Cry:

I'm so sorry to hear that, it's very sad. You can't help but get attached can you.
I try not to, but it's a losing battle--I love them even before they're born when I can feel them kicking while their mama lays on my lap. They're not just some animals--they're my kids. :Cry:

:Cry: Now one of the pinky boys is fading away....I have tried everything I know, but he just isn't going to make it...:Cry: The other three look good, but I feel so lousy ...it's hard to think of anything else. Why do we lose so many kittens? I don't remember hairy cats losing kittens all the while I was growing up. These little things are so helpless...and I am powerless. Thanks everybody for your kindness and well wishes. I really appreciate the support and caring I feel from all of you.

I need to concentrate on the positive---I have my beautiful new aqua eyed boy, Boo and I still have three healthy newborns along with all my sweet loves here at home. I am very lucky to have a home filled with love. :Smile:

:Cry: very sorry to hear about your loss. May she rest in peace. I do hope pinky boy gets stronger- he is in my prayers.

You're very strong to stay so positive. It doesn't make dealing with this any easier but think of all the love and joy they give us during their lives. It is truly amazing.

:Cry: I lost the pinky boy this morning. Thanks for all the love you all sent...the other three look as though they are going to make it, so for that, I am so grateful. :Smile:
