I'm mourning... - The Void: Mind Wanderings of a Lost Soul
I'm mourning...
:( One of the baby kittens was dead this morning. He was lying in the same spot he was in yesterday in the rain. So I picked him up with gloves on and peacefully buried him :(...*sniff* and the maintenance man said that one of the others is going to die because it's really weak and not moving. He was sitting far away from the other kittens, so I moved him up with his siblings hoping that they will warm him and allow him to get food from the mother. It's very sad though. I'll keep checking on them. Making sure that the momma is feeding them and if the little one doesn't perk up later on today or tomorrow, I'm taking it home for some one on one feeding. I've bottle fed before, I can do it again.

One of my cats, when she was little was the runt and v'ry sickly. My sister nursed her back to health and she become the biggest and brattiest of all cats we've ever had.

lol...the one that I bottlefed before is now a spoiled fat brat as well now. I guess we babied ours too much :)

There is something quite intoxicating about nursing and mother a small animal that needs you though. It touched me quite deeply.

It is so cold out there right now, and the wind maginifies the cold. The rain and cold temps are not good for small kittens. I'm sorry you had to deal with something so sad today.
