Do you think it would be worth trying the Karo again?

I'll try it if I can get her to revive enough.....she was pretty limp there for awhile ...she has moved her limbs a little in the last few minutes, so I'm hoping that means the heat might be helping....thank you everyone...having support on sites like this is immeasurably uplifting....thanks......

Just don't let this destroy your good intentions. There are not many folk who can do what you do.
Thank you hissy....as I know you can relate...it comes natural to me....wouldnt want to do anything else with my "spare" time!
Thank you for your help!

You are welcome, I am hoping the rice heaters work. They get cold so quickly when they aren't with mom or the littermates, once they start slipping into the cold you have to bring them back gently-

I'm soo sorry to hear that. I just came across this thread a minute ago. Sometimes they just don't make it and the momma kitty probably knew something was wrong with the kitten....that's what usually happens when you find the mom laying on the kitten. I applaud you and support you for exhausting all of the options you had to take care of your kittens and the momma. The momma and the other kitties are lucky to have you caring for them. Also, don't feel bad about not taking her to the vet...i don't think there could have been much the vet would have been able to do for it at that point...at least now the little kitten is in no more pain and is happy now. Keep your chin up- you did a wonderful job. If there's anything else you need, please let me know. i'm not sure how to cancel a thread, but i'm sure one of the other members could help you. I hope your night gets better....you're and your other kitties are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sometimes no matter how much money you have, or how much you want a kitten to survive, it just isn't meant to be. I don't know about your emergency vet, but unless they are knowledgeable about newborn kittens, they may not have been much help anyhow. And sometimes no amount of knowledge or skill will keep a little one going.

I am very sorry for your loss. I have never had to experience that as you have...I always came home to one already gone. At least you are sure you tried all the little tips like Karo syrup and keeping baby warm.

Rest in peace, little angel. Every beat of your heart was precious. During your short time here, you were truly loved. Now you can go play happily over the bridge, never to know a moments sorrow. Someday your Meowmie will come join you.

Oh newfostermom you were such a good mom to your kitten. Now you have a kitten angel all to yourself. You kept your kitten warm till the end, she/he didn't die alone or unloved and that is the greatest gift.

So sorry for your loss.

Ringing and ringing....I have to say I was envious when momof3rr was saying how her vet kept checking in with her...my vets office has not been helpfull at all.....even with her being so sick...Istarted another round of antibiotics which they could only fill half of..it took them a week to get me the rest of the perscription..leaving her unprotected FOR THREE DAYS>..this was just the other day...I nagged every single day to get it.....they dont like me any more..regardless their not open and the emergency vet is not answering..should I just go there?
I have to say I was jealous of her too...only for myself, not my cat! Let's just say when I was bit by the wild kitten last weekend I called ER and they wanted me to call my allergist before coming in. I left the msg as instructed on her afterhours line and it took 6 DAYS for her to return my call. Needless to say I didn't wait for her before going in.

So sorry about the little one.
