Closed her eyes forever this morning...
For those of you who have contacted me regarding the kittens... and how the littlest of the bunch is doing. Sadly, she was put to sleep this morning by the Vet. Her health has been deteriorating, she's not gained any weight and has been on a down slide health-wise the last number of days. She's barely been able to stand up so never mind feed. The food won't stay in her either, kept bubbling back up... and they thought it would be best for the little one instead of having her continue to suffer with her weakening health.
I only knew her for a very short amount of time. As I said, she was half the size of her siblings. A grapefruit was larger than her as I watched her sleep that evening, all curled up in the bed. I had such hopes for her but it just wasn't meant to be. She had the best care in my neighbour and her own mother cat who did try to get her to feed regularly.
She was never given a name, much like her siblings waiting for homes. I would like to give her one now... Molly.
