I'm not feeling good. my 8 week old kitten passed away yesterday and it wasn't peacefully. I held her as she gasped for air. she'd stop breathing then gasp again and cry 😭😭😭 I feel like I failed her. like I didn't do enough for her. I couldn't afford a vet visit. but even that wouldn't have saved her. she got sick very very suddenly, lost all weight in 2 days passed on the 3rd or 4th day. her mom was sick when they were born and they all ended up with basically cat herpes eye infections. I got the meds for them and her and her brother still lost an eye each. I bought kitten formula and food to help them get more vitamins and gain weight better. the other 3 kittens are doing fine. but I'm taking this so so hard and IDK why it's hitting me this bad??? am I having a mental breakdown?? I just took my Xanax because I can't sleep. my depression and anxiety are through the roof. please send prayers and positive thoughts my way. I literally have no friends and nobody to turn to.

    ❤️😥 that's so hard, I'm so very sorry. I held a kitten as it died, it messes you up a but for sure. I don't really have words of wisdom, just empathy. 😥❤️

    I am so sorry you are going through such a hard time. It sounds just awful. Remember to be easy with yourself, it sounds like you are doing the best you can for these sweet animals. I’m so sorry for the one that past. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my 9 month old kitten in February (on the anniversary of my husband I getting together ) it broke my heart I collapsed in the kitchen sobbing for hours. He was my boy and I'm still lost without him, even though we have more kittens now and out of those kittens I have a new boy that I love dearly, but it's not the same (even though these kittens are siblings to the one I lost.) I lost my boy very tragically and I felt like it was my fault and that I failed him. Again I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm here if you need or want to talk.

    I’m so sorry for your loss! All I can say is DON’T BLAME YOURSELF FOR SOMETHING YOU HAD NO CONTROL OVER! You have done everything in your power to help those kittens thrive and that is BEAUTIFUL. Most people would have immediately given up on them.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I know that must be so hard. I lost my 12 year old dog 3 years ago and it broke my heart. If you need someone to talk to, I'm here.
