Five kittens...

Hey, few faithful readers. Dave and I took on five newborn kittens two weeks ago...if you know anything about newborn kittens, you know that means bottle feeding every 3-5 hours. There is no sleep. I don't mind that...but I do mind losing all five of them to what was most likely a congenital defect. We're burying the last one tomorrow. I'm tired, sad, and kinda drained.

    Having been there before, I felt like the emotional fatigue was worse than the physical. So sorry...

    Oh holy crap! See this is why I could NEVER do this.

    I'm not sure if I could do it again, but give me a while to recover and then I'll think about it... I think that the physical and emotional exhaustion feed off of each other when they start dying. I could handle being physically tired if they'd made it. So yeah, emotional tired beats physical tired!

    Deep sympathies for you and Dave, and big hugs for giving the lil' kitties a fighting chance!
