Jason says: Lil' Girl is one of four kittens that I bottle fed. The mother came and had them under my house and before I could get them set up in my garage a group of stray dogs killed her. I grieved over her for a long time. She was a young cat and had barely lived and had these kittens and then died defending them. I still feel like I let her down in her moment of need. I made it out there too late to save her, but she did save her kittens. Everyone that saw them said they wouldn't live, but I wasn't going to give up on them. She didn't.

There were two black kittens (one male, one female), an almost-all-white female, and then Lil' Girl (a black-and-white female who looked just like her mother who was also called Lil' Girl). Their adoptive dad Nick was very open to the kittens. He played with them and was very protective until he started having his problems at the end. He still tried to play with them up until his final stroke. I raised the kittens and found good homes for three of them and kept Lil' Girl with me. I have to say she has been a godsend. She brings me joy every day.

Jason, you were a fount of kindness to the mom and kittens. I think you did all that was possible and more. Heroic animal lover. I chose the black kitty because I love him.

Those are the cutest kittens, and that is the saddest story. I'm glad you had the kittens to help you get through such a sad time. Nick, you were a good boy.

At the least, not only did her babies survive and Lil Girl lives again (in a way) in her daughter, but the momma also knew love from you for at least a short while. We've been there too - used to have bad dog problems out here and lost a couple of our beloved little ones that way. It really is heartbreaking.
