Very Very Sad

I'm very sad today because I have to tell everyone that both kitties have gone to kitty heaven. I fed and loved and pretended to be mama for them, but they were too little and too weak to fight whatever illness came over them. It breaks my heart, so much so, that we've decided to go to the humane society and adopt another. I had already grown really attached to them, and they had already become part of the family. I am still going to honor my contest though, since I will still need a name for our new Kitty to be. but...I will extend it until Friday because I'd like to go see what beautiful kittens they have at the SPCA. One name in particular has really tickled my fancy, and I actually went so far as to use it on one of the kittens...I'm not telling yet though. There still may be another name I like just as much out there in the brains of you knitters. It's silly I know to be so sad for little kittens that really didn't have alot of chance to begin with since they were abandoned, but I feel like I'm grieving the loss of a long time pet(s). I'll check in if we adopt a new kitten this week!

i'm so sorry. it's not silly to be sad for losing pets, even if you only had them a short time. hope your new kitten helps to take away some of that sadness.

Oh, I'm so sorry. *big hug*

It is never silly to mourn a pet. My Father once held a funeral for a fish. It started like this...We never once called our friend Beta "the fish" because he was more then just that to us. He was a friend who saw us through our good times and bad...

I hope the new kitten helps to heal your loss. My thoughts are with you.

Sometimes the briefest of encounters has the longest impact. Regardless of how little time you had the kittens, you were obviously invested in their well being and they were loved. I hope the new kitten will help ease the loss a little.
