A little prayer
Say a little prayer for 5 kitty souls. My SIL's cat had her 5 kittens and all 5 died within a week. 2 died after the first day. 2 more after the second. And the last lived for about 5 days. They were very small. She was upset, as was her teenage son and 3 year old daughter. She called the vet after they starting dying, but they said there was nothing they could do. The momma cat was laying on top of the kittens and smothering them. Nature is cruel sometimes. Paulina took the last kitten away and bottle fed it for a few days before it died. It's like the momma cat knew that the babies weren't going to make it, so she didn't want to waste energy caring for them. It's a hard thing for kids to understand. Animals are very different than humans in this regard. So for the little kitties, may you find peace and joy in that kitty playground in the sky.
