Unhappy Just lost my first kitten.

Not much worse than holding a dying kitten in your arms. Noticed yesterday he was slightly thinner and weaker, wouldn't nurse or take formula. this AM he was apart from the rest of the kittens and cold. Couldn't eat, barely breathing. Watching him go over the Rainbow Bridge in my arms is heartbreaking but he is loved.

Oh I am so sorry Marcia. No matter how young or old no matter how long you have had them in your care it's still horrible to go through. Sending hugs

I'm so sorry! He was with you when he crossed, so I'm sure that was a big comfort to him.

Yes, not a happy day, but I sit and am surrounded by 8 happy, healthy totally loveable kittens with 3 more teeny tiny ones coming along in the cage. I know it’s rare to lose a baby but I’ve had a good string of healthy ones so far. I’d rather it happen this way than he suffer long term with an unknown illness. I'm ok, a bit melancholy today. I named him Tommy. Shelter vet tech suspects FIP. Hoping they will do an autopsy to confirm or deny.

Sorry to hear he passed, but at least he passed in your hands knowing some good in life! He wasn't in a shelter cage or outside and unloved. Bless your heart!
