My friends kitten died yesterday.
He was the kitten born last week.
I was afraid this would happen but never told her.
She has kittens due in a few days that should be ok because the blood types are fine.

So sorry to hear about Zippy. :Cry: Hopefully she'll have better luck with the kittens-to-be born.

Neonatal isoerythrolysis?

I wonder if she let him nurse to soon.
I will ask her if it was that.

I just hate this! So sorry for little Zippy and his owner--it hurts so bad to lose a little one. My heart goes out to her. RIP little man--Itty Bit and Petunia paved the way and hopefully they will meet you on the other side of the bridge....

Poor little baby. I'm so sorry to hear M2M. Hopefully everything goes well with the other litter.

Very sorry to hear of this. I gather from your comment that the parents blood types weren't compatible.

Here's hoping the next litter will fair much better.

They litter due friday should be ok but the other litter will be a problem again.
The mom and the sire are the wrong blood types again.

Sorry to hear that. :Cry:

Is she going to get another boy, rather than risk more incompatible litters in the future?

Yes she is going to get another boy.
I already talked to breeder for her that has offered to help her.
They are doing it because I am a friend of hers.

She is still very upset and is rethinking her breeding program right now.

It's heartbreaking to lose a kitten. Hopefully her other incompatible litter will survive and then she can relax and enjoy them.

I sure hope they live.
She is going to bottle feed them longer this time.
Her Oreo was due today but no kittens so far.
She is a Devon Rex/Sphynx bred to a sphynx.
Both have the same blood types.
