Michelle says: Ali, her two brothers, and her sister Penelope were all rescued off a sidewalk. Someone with good intentions had brought them in but sadly hadn't waited to see if momma cat would come back before doing so ( a lof of effort went into trying to locate momma cat to bring her in to nurse the kittens, but no luck). The two boys went to one foster home, and the two girls came to our foster home for bottle feeding. Everything seemed fine until they turned five weeks old when Penelope's heart gave out. =( We were devastated. This was the first time my husband had experienced a kitten passing in his hands. It was heartbreaking. We decided to have our veterinarian do a necropsy (an autopsy for animals). He found that her heart had defects and there was nothing that could have been done. While we felt better that it wasn't anything we could have prevented, we were still sad...but we know she died in our home, very loved. Ali (Aligator, rawr!!!) thrived and was adopted to a home with another kitty. Her brothers were adopted together and we saw a video of them riding on a roomba! Silly boys. ;-)

I rarely see adult cats in this cute "human baby" position. Maybe even kittens are more flexible than adult cats.

Ali, the dilute ginger, is so wonderful, I could never give her up. And the photos capture her alligator spirit perfectly. This photo is especially amusing to me because she is so fierce from the beginning!

When my Spider died, I was devastated and wanted a necropsy but my vet refused. He said it would really not prove anything. Spider died during the Menu foods melamine poisoning episode. I still don't know why I let the vet persuade me not to do it. Perhaps he wasn't good at the procedure. Spider was 18 and his death was sudden and awful--a systemic collapse or organ failure.

So sad about Penelope ... but as you said, at least she passed with love and care. These ginger girls are lovely and Ali grew into a beautiful and healthy kitten.

I am so sorry for your loss! I foster and I know how hard it is to loose a little...makes me cry every time. Penelope passed knowing she was loved and so many kittens never experience that! God bless you and your husband for fostering. Penelope is a beautiful kitten...good job!

Ali is adorable, and developed into a really beautiful kitten. So sad about Penelope, but at least she was in a loving home for her last days. I had to pick this photo of Ali, because I just love little pink kitty toes!

What a precious pair of catties. Love the light fur color. So sorry about Penelope, and her Momma, but I am happy that the two boys and Ali got adopted to good homes. Thank you Michelle for all the good work you do with the catties!

I am so sad to see the sweet babies who don't make it. I can't bear to delete the picture so into my file it goes...
Glad the others are healthy, happy, and home!

Sad to hear one baby didn't survive but they both had lots of love and that's what counts. This is a cute pose, just chillin'!

Gosh, cute photos, but I get this page so I can be happy and cheerful in the morning. Now I'm sad because of the bad news given here. I wish folks would stick to just the uplifting stuff on the "Good Morning Kitten" pages. :)
