I got Willow as an emergency placement last Wednesday. I normally only foster 9mo and above and have never had experience with a baby kitten but I am off for the summer and the only one who could care for her around the clock. I cautiously agreed and fell in love with the little fluffball.
She tried her hardest to conquer the issues baby kittens have when they are separated from their mama too early. She had two really amazing days where she got to run around, play and bask in the warmth of the Texas sun which she absolutely loved. But in the end, there were too many things working against her little 7 ounce body and she had to be put to sleep today.
My heart hurts for the loss of such a sweet little soul who never got the chance to grow up into the amazing cat I know she would have been. My only consolation is that I got to show her the love she deserved and probably never would have received otherwise.
