I adopted a stray cat about one and half year ago! Her name is Kat and she is so kind and gentle. She loves to cuddle at night and always wants me to pet her every time I sit down. So Kat got pregnant when she got out the house. She had her babies May 7, 2019 and it was four beautiful kittens. She had three boys and one girl and were all healthy at birth. They just turned 6 weeks this week and suddenly one of the boys died. His name was tigger because he was always bouncing around. He was always playful and started sleeping in my bed last week. He was healthy, big, and fluffy!
He just started using the litter box and I was so proud of him. When he was born he was so aggressive like he was fighting to live. He managed to get whatever nipple he wanted and he made sure of that. I would never have thought that this would ever happen. Earlier today before he died, he was acting real strange like he wasn’t himself. I should have noticed it right then that something wasn’t right. I was too busy worrying about getting the dishes done and floors mopped that I didn’t stop to pay attention. I feel like I could have prevented all this from happening. I just picked him up and put him in the room with his siblings so I can finish the floors. My husband came from work and checked on the babies and they all were doing fine. Later on when my husband was going to bed he noticed that one of the kittens were crying but very softly. Tigger was under my bed crying and my husband came with him into the living room. He asked if he was doing this before he got home and I said no. He tried everything to try and save him but he didn’t make it. Now I can’t stop thinking that I could have saved his life. He was just a baby and he didn’t even get to live. I will miss him so much because he was my tigger!

First of all I am so sorry for your loss of your Tigger. Secondly, I am sorry it has taken me to respond to your post. I understand your sorrow at the loss of one so young. I fostered cats and dogs many years ago and as hard as I tried I lost a couple kittens. My daughter had a Tigger kitty when she was growing up. He was a real character, oh the stories I could tell. Please do not blame yourself, you did nothing wrong. He had such a short little life but most importantly you loved him and I am sure he loved you in return. Things can happen so quickly and you had no way of knowing he was sick. Please take care and visit us whenever you need to. I promise not to be so late in replying next time.
