Keep cool this weekend....and nap.
Never fails...throw a holiday in and kittens tend to get sick (or worse). Mom dropped Clove and Chicory off at the adoption center on Thursday morning on her way to work. They were all snotted up and breathing hard. They got fluids and some time in the nebulizer at the center.
Unfortunately, Clove and Chicory passed away about 11am on Thursday. Sometimes kittens get an upper respiratory and are fine, other times, they seem OK and then crash all of a sudden. It really is the hardest part of fostering....
Oh I am so sorry. That must be just the hardest to lose kittens like that. Sending lots of hugs. So so sad.ReplyDelete
Oh no...! I'm so very sorry, that's so sad. I can't imagine ever getting used to it, though I know it's a part of fostering. :-(ReplyDelete
Hugs and purrs from us.
Oh, no! I'm so sorry. And, of course, it could have been more than a "simple" URI. So hard to know, so hard to endure. People think cats are so tough and self-reliant. We, who foster, know a very different reality.ReplyDelete
Kitten mortality is high, even with good care. Sounds like that litter may have had health issues that made a URI a little more serious for them. They had fun while they were here. <3ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, I am stunned! Sweet babies, it's a heartbreaker to hear they've passed. Sending hugs and purrs.ReplyDelete
Oh no! So sorry to hear you have had so much loss lately.ReplyDelete
Two more little ones gone. That really is very hard and cruel. Godspeed, Clove and Chicory.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry about the kittens. How sad to lose them when they were so close to adoption time.ReplyDelete
Oh no, so very sorry to hear this Jeanne. Even though it comes with the territory, it can't ever be easy.ReplyDelete
Mrrrrp? Meow! We are sorry to hear about this. We will purr for their memory and for the empties left in your heart. PurrPurrPurrPurrPurrPurrPurrPurr...ReplyDelete

Oh, no. Not two more. How heartbreaking to lose them when they were nearly ready for speutering and homes. Sending lots of purrs.ReplyDelete
Godspeed Clove & Chicory; just like Cilantro, please know you were loved; we are happy to have known you all and we are truly truly sorry ♥♥♥♥ extra hugs to mom; with lots of "strength" too ~~~~~~~~~~ ♥♥♥♥♥ daisy, tuna, dude, sauce and boomer ~~~ReplyDelete
How devastating. It says a lot about cats and what they mean to us that you feel each loss intimately. Most people don't get it - but you can't just replace one cat with another. Each one touches you - each one matters.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry to read this ! At least they will meet their littermate OTB - purrayers and POTP to all who loved and cared for them.ReplyDelete
Oh no! We're so sorry to hear this! We're sending lots of purrs and hugs your way.ReplyDelete
Oh, no! We are so sorry to hear this. Godspeed, sweet mini kit-cats!!!ReplyDelete
We're so sorry to read of Clove and Chicory's passing. We love you, and are so grateful for all you do for so many.ReplyDelete
We are so sorry to hear this sad news.ReplyDelete
Hugs and kitty kisses...

Please accept our condolences. This is very sad. Kittens are so delicate. May these small souls rest in peace. We know they had the best care and love during their short lives.
