Hi I haven't been here in a while, since Sept. when we took in a pregnant Mother cat and her three kittens. She had 6 more kittens, add the father, and our three cats and you have 14! We fell in love with all of them so needless to say we couldn't give any away. They were born Aug. 27, so this month (March) we took them to be spayed and neutered. The vet's office called to say they were all fine and ready to go home. On the way to pick them up the vet called and told my son that 2 of them had died after surgery. They were two of the largest, healthiest, kittens of all. They were almost identical twins, except for a little line of white hairs on the bottom lip of one. The dr. said this happens sometimes that cats are more prone to have lung problems after surgery, and that he checked them and they were all breathing fine. One occasionally, maybe, but two healthy boys? Has this happened to anyone? We were absolutely devestated. All the others are fine, and the older three were done a few months ago, and are fine, as is the mother and father. It has left a big void in our lives.
