A bit more bad news- yesterday morning, my last little white kitten from that litter, Mimi - the one who was already spoken for and going to be adopted when she got better passed away. (formerly Piper). It's been rough. Yesterday, i woke up for her 3am feeding and all was good- she was eating just fine and all. When i woke up again at 6am to feed them all before work, i took her out and she was 1/2 dead. I put her in the carrier and rushed her to the shelter. When i got there i gave her a sub -q iv and put her in front of the big heater to warm her up. She was already freezing cold- she shouldn't have been- she had been on a heating pad and warm fleecy blankets in her carrier. i'm not sure what happened. she seemed to be doing better for a few minutes- and then she started seizing very badly. I started kitten cpr on her after she stopped and she responded a bit to that. At this time one of the other animal control officers was trying to help me as well- we worked on her for a good 45 minutes. She started seizing over and over again and her heart juts seemed to stop. Nothing we did was working.
We tried everything- iv's, kitten cpr, the heater - nothing worked. She was much too young for certain meds (to jump start her heart- that young and even the smallest amount can cause death). I am really upset. I lost the entier litter
I think something was wrong with all 3 of them though- i'm not sure what- but i really think something gentetic was going on. It was really sad to have to call her new family last night and tell them- but they were soo sweet and understanding about it. They are still adopting one of my older foster kittens and are now planning on getting on of her littermates as well since little Mimi didn't make it. At least that is a bit of positive news. It's still really upsetting. I still have her little blankie that she died in in her carrier- i need to go through and clean it all out but it's just depressing
Sorry there is no good news today about the last little one. At least i can take a little comfort knowing that all 3 of my beautiful little kittens are being watched over by the other wonderful rainbow bridge animals.
