I am DEVASTATED. I sob as I write this. Our brand new kitten Louie, just 10 weeks old, was adopted as our family pet 2 weeks ago. He was so loving and sweet. All he wanted to do was be held. He got sick about 2 days after we had him; lots of diarrhea. I assumed it was new kitten food and adjustment. And since he didn’t know how to clean himself very well, we cleaned him. Lovingly. Over and over. He stopped using the litter box and I wondered if he was sick. We took him to the vet Christmas Eve, after a week of diarrhea and regression. They sent us home with a dewormer and probiotics. After 3 days there wasn’t much improvement. Today I woke up in our bed and I was laying on him. I have no idea if I killed him by laying on him, or if he was sick and just passed away last night. The guilt I have is immense. My heart is so delicate for animals and I’m not sure how to live with knowing I may have been the one that hurt him. He trusted me and I let him down. He didn’t leave my side in the 2 weeks we had him. My kids are taking this death ok but they don’t know that I might have been the cause. I am not ok. Can’t stop crying. If you have any words to console me I would greatly appreciate it. I am beside myself.

I’m so sorry for your loss please don’t torture yourself with guilt. Your reaction is normal and you would never harm your fur baby. I don’t think you laid on top of him at all it sounds like he was very sick and being so young he couldn’t handle the illness. You did everything you could by getting him medicine and love. Praying for your peace and giving you hugs 🙏💕🐾
