RIP Tiberius

post #1 of 14

I'm sorry I couldn't do more for you. I miss you little man. I love you and wish you were here with me. What I would give to hear your little cry and watch you feed with your bottle. Try to bite my finger and I would blow in your face and say "no" but you'd come back for more.

I know as time passes it will get better but I do not understand right now.

I hope that wherever you are you are in good hands.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose a beloved kitty, even one that you have had for a short time. I hope the fact that you gave him love and tried your best is some consolation to you.

Sleep peacefully, Little Tiberius.

Hand raising kittens is devilishly hard and prone to sudden heartbreak.

I am so sorry for your loss - I know you tried so hard. This baby was well-loved while he was here - and bless you for opening your hearts to him.

Thank you all.

I'm having such a difficult time getting used to him not being here. I know everyone will tell me different, but I can't help to think that he's not here anymore because of something we did or did not do.

We didn't know anything about doing this. The vet said he was healthy, and we tried everything to make sure anything he came into contact with was sterile. We fed him all the time and made sure he didn't come into contact with any other animals. The vet at the Emergency place said he had a fever of 102. Was going to give him medication and put fluid under his skin to help with dehydration. I didn't even realize he was dehydrated. In less than 5 hours of taking him into their care he died. The vet said that another patient came in and he had to attend to that one and while he was my kitten tried to vomit and he thinks it went into his lungs. Somehow I feel like maybe if they were watching him more closely? I don't know. I feel like they felt he wasn't going to make it so the other patient had more chance of a survival so he helped that one. I'm just mad at everything right now. I feel so guilty and I wonder if that will ever go away.

I also keep wondering if maybe he could have been sick and just came all to a head because he was so little, I don't know. He was fine then hours later gone.

I know it'll get easier and it may sound silly, but I'm still in the stage where I want my kitty back. =(

It's good that you invested your love and concern in this little fuzzy being. So many people are unable to do that. Yes, it means you (and probably all of us on this forum) have your heart broken on a regular basis.

Without a necropsy, no one can know for sure what happened, but kittens often crash very suddenly. Anyone who has dealt with a lot of kittens has seen it. It's not unusual for the workers to show up to the shelter and find kittens, even those still with their mother, who looked healthy last night but who have died overnight. You did your best, and even if you made a mistake (and we all do), you didn't do it intentionally. Little Tiberius knew love and care, warmth and a full tummy from you, and and that's all we have to offer, really, when it comes down to it.

I am so sorry for your loss. It's heartbreaking to loose a little one that was so young. You did all you could for him and gave him all the love that was possible.
