this sucks.....

Short post for now. I got home last night and fed my crew but was greeted at the bathroom door by 3 kittens - not 5. The other two were on the bed and not moving. The tinier one couldn't even stand up under his own power. I wrapped them both up and headed over to the rescue. They are with Mona (the leader) right now. I am hoping for an update this morning. Both got fluids, but I have my doubts about the tiniest gray one. The other is the striped tabby boy.

Plus, there are normall at least 3 of us at the shelter on this Tuesday. I got there over 30 minutes late and the lights in the cat room were still off. No one showed up. I knew the one girl wasn't coming but hadn't heard from the other - though I had sent her a text letting her know I was running late. Found out later she was sick as well. Fortunately my friend DeLynn lives close - she gets the big gold star for coming in to help me clean.

I will post more as I find things out......please send purrs out to these little boys.
update as of 10:20am.
Roxsas, the tabby boy passed away last night.

 His brother Riku is holding on but it doesn't sound good.

I know this is a possiblity every time I take kittens - especially from this rescue since she will take those cats that others won't - I know these kittens probably wouldn't have even made it into foster with the larger shelter around since they came in so snotty. And no matter how much I know that they were safe and loved for the time they were here, it still sucks to lose such a tiny life.....

Run free tiny boys.....


  1. We're sending purrs and purrayers to these little ones, poor sweeties. :-(

  2. We are sending lots of purrs for the little ones! We hope they recover fully!

  3. Oh no! :-( Me and Charlie are so so so sorry to hear about little Riku and Roxsas! Oh poor little sweet babies. We're glad they had a lot of love from you all in their very short lives. Take care

  4. how dad. prayers and purrs with the little ones and you as your grieve.

    thanks for looking after them all.

  5. How sad, but bless you for helping them and giving them a chance.


  6. My heart goes out to you and them. I am so sorry to hear that Roxsas wasn't able to make it. It really stinks.

  7. We're so sorry about the little guys. :( Thank you for showing them some love!

  8. I'm so sorry. Even though this is always a risk with sick kittens, it never makes it any easier, ever. Purrs to Riku, and yes, no matter what happens, it IS important that he is safe and loved.

  9. It does suck. Especially because they were loved and given a chance.You made their short time here softer, easier , safer. Thank you for that.
    Make sure you show your angel wings to Lewis, sweet, wee boys :)

  11. Poor babies! I really hope they're okay!

  12. Purrs for Riku and Roxsas, may they run free knowing they were loved and cared for, thanks to you.


  13. I am so sorry to hear Roxsas passed away... His life was too short and it's really sad...but glad he was loved and safe with you.

  14. So sorry about Roxsas and sending my best vibrations to the another babies!!

  15. I'm sorry to hear this, I know that it happens more often than any of us would like with kittens, and is always so difficult to handle. I will be sending good thoughts.

  16. oh, we are so sorry! :( Poor little Roxsas. Run free. All the little kitties are blessed to have you and the other rescuers looking out for them. He knew love and the others will know loving forever homes. We are purring hard for little Riku.

  17. {{hugs}} and purrs, Jeanne. At least the babes knew love and full tummies with you.

  18. Run free, Roxas! Purring very hard for Riku. So glad they were happy and knew love with you. Bless you for all the little ones you care for.

  19. I'm so sorry...I read your comment on Beth's blog that both had passed, so I assume Riku didn't make it. :-(

    Sending lots of hugs and Light to you.


  20. I'm so sorry. I wish I could reach through the computer and hug you.

    We've had a higher number of kitten losses than usual this year. Like you, we've taken in some of the worst cases and they don't always make it. Doesn't matter if I know them 2 minutes or 2 years, it still hurts the same.

    Big hugs.


We love to hear from you.....
