We have the sads.....

Mom went to check on Baloo this morning and he was doing very badly like last weekend. She took him back to the vet and his white blood cell count (which should be about 5) was 0.7. After talking to the vet and spending some time with him, she knew that the right thing to do was to help him across The Bridge. He is now safe and healthy and playing with his brother Mowgli.

We think the 3 kittens the shelter took will be fine - they all appear to be very healthy.

We are going to spend some time this weekend with mom doing some cuddling and will be back on Tuesday with a special post.....but we are taking a couple days break until then....though we are sure mom may be reading and commenting.

Thanks as always for your love and support...

  2. We've got the sads now, too. It's hard, even when you know it's the absolute greatest gift of love you can give to anyone.

    Thanks for loving Baloo and always giving him exactly what he needed!

  4. Sad indeed. You gave Baloo a great life, so sad it was so short. Thanks for caring for all the kitties the way you do. I like the picture of Baloo and Mowgli being reunited and playing together. I'll hold onto that picture.

  11. it is always so sad when a kitten doesn't make it to being a cat. It is a blessing when they are able to spend what little time they do have being loved and wanted.

    All too short, but no less precious.
