This is turning out to be a somewhat crappy week. After a fairly sizeable mess-up at work (for which I have been properly and fairly reprimanded, but still feel awful about), I returned home yesterday to find that the kitten I am fostering this week had passed away during the day. We can only assume, based on observations throughout the week, that Little Bit was not developing properly – his brain function didn’t seem up to par for his age, and I’m pretty sure Momma Kitty rejected him. She was looking unsettled, and I nearly lost it – I made Donna deal with the clean up. Kitten is being returned to the shelter tonight for proper handling, and I am sending Momma Kitty to Megan’s (which was part of the original plan anyway).
Sleep well, Little Bit.
Here’s hoping tomorrow brings a better day, and a good weekend.
