One of the hardest things that we face when fostering kittens is that some of them do not survive. Often they come to us weighing less than a pound and we do the very best we can to feed them, keep them hydrated and love them but sometimes it just doesn't work. This week we lost the battle with one of our foster kittens. She was so brave and struggled so much to live that my person kept trying to help her live. It took a talk with our supervising veterinary staff for her to realize that the sweet brave little thing was suffering and the kindest thing to do was to end the suffering. I think my person and little girl were feeding off of each other. My person kept promising her that she would do all she could and little girl kept bravely fighting to survive. Once the decision was made and my person told her it was okay. Little girl relaxed and went peacefully to the rainbow bridge. Sometimes the kindest thing to do is to let them go. It is hard but necessary. Please support spay and neuter in your community. Support your local shelters and rescue groups in this beginning of kitten season. Adopt don't shop and if you must shop. . .shop Petfinder.
