So sorry. How many in the litter?

YouveCatToBeKittenMe · 02/05/2014 20:58

awww I'm so sorry
I know they can die really suddenly for no apparent reason
I think it's known as fading kitten syndrome

very sad for you though Sad

4 in the litter , I took them all for a check up Monday & they were given the all clear Sad

She loved sitting in a bowl of warm water & always slept with her eyes facing light or the sun Sad

How heartbreaking, poor little mite.

Aww so sorry OP Sad

OP ive just gotten a kitten and the woman told me 3 out of her 6 died really suddenly and the vet says it just happens sometimes. One was playing one minute and collapsed the next.

So sorry to hear that. Sad

Sonumb · 02/05/2014 22:11

I've buried her in the garden , is that the right thing to do ?

Deeply? (Foxes)

We buried all ours, in years to come archeologists will think our family was mass murdering cats Sad

We plant bushes over them.

Sonumb · 02/05/2014 22:19

yeah plenty deep enough , we don't have foxes round where I am .
I'm going to plant a bush next week Sad
I wasn't sure what to bury her in so used an old sandwich tub Blush

Aww RIP kitty ThanksThanksThanks

OP that must have been horrible to discover Sad Brew or Wine as appropriate (and an unMN hug)

Fluffycloudland77 · 02/05/2014 22:29

It's not a situation you come across everyday luckily. No one knows what they'd do until it happens.

cozietoesie · 02/05/2014 22:58

I'm so sorry. What a heartache for you.

Sonumb · 02/05/2014 23:15
