ONe kitten yesterday scared me to pieces. I went in to check, Hyia was at a movie with a friend's family. All 4 were laying on top of this one, at first I thought she was missing. When I touched her, she stretched out a paw, I reached down and picked her up, set her down and she fell over. I felt sick and picked her up, no response. I shook her lightly, nothing. I stroked her, nothing, I checked her gums, pink and moist, ears pink, belly not distended, I held her to my ear, no sticky lungs, no ticking, no gasping for breath, nothing. I brought her in and put her under a lamp, her head was wobbly, I thought stop poking at her, I hate it when people just keep poking when something is passing, I left her under the lamp and made phone calls. I am crying, I can't help it, I feel awful because I have no idea what was wrong. She would seem to revive amd then again, seemed too weak for anything. I called my Mom because I always call my Mom when I am a mess. WHich I was. This is when I know how post stress I am, I just don't handle things like this anymore, not after last week with all the hospital, and other issues. I think Why did I get into this. I don't lose them, EVER. I didn't even lose the last 4 parvo pups i worked with. Even that bad one. Why why why why.

TO make a very long story short, this kitten has a new name. IT's Resurrection. If Anyone can explain to me why that kitten was able to climb the mesh in 2 seconds flat, slam down her breakfast, ate some baby beef last night for the first time, I don't know. When it was over it was over. Th cat lady that is in charge of the kittens probably thinks I am a basket case. WHich might be true...but at least she is fine this morning, all are fat and fluffy and messy waiting for a great clean up because they are enjoying their formula mixed baby beef and purring in a pile. I will be glad when this is over. IN the meantime Hyia is happy as can be. And that counts too. School starts in a couple weeks, babies go back to staying all day with their Mama, and I might recover from this summer. I know one thing for sure, I am so tired it sint' funny. I am glad the Cat lady said go ahead and starte them on the beef. They will take more clean up, but less worry about warm enough, too cool, syringe wont' work right blah blah feedings. Soon as it warms up outside a bit, I am going to take their first baby portraits.
