    I'm sorry for such a sad thread but thought you guys would like to know the news. Remember these tiny babies?

    http://www.petforums.co.uk/cat-chat...-brighten-up-your-day-very-picture-heavy.html

    Well, it's with a heavy heart that I tell you all that the little runt, Merry, lost her fight for life this morning :(


    She wasn't developing at all and her Mummy rejected her. We tried to keep her going with substitute milk but it was just too late. She started to fade, stopped feeding altogether and had a very bad case of the runs. So, this morning, she was helped over the bridge. There was nothing more we could do for her and the vet reckoned she would have gone naturally within a few hours anyway. She was just too weak :crying:



    Merry, we tried our hardest, Sweetheart. Everyday, we hoped you would have got a little bigger, a little stronger, a little more fight. But you were too good for this world. Know you touched a lot of hearts in your short life and I, for one, will never forget you.

    Sleep well, tiny lady :001_wub: xXx

    Thank you all for your lovely words.

    Tiny babies like these should be beginning their lives, not ending them. Sadly, some just aren't meant to be.

    For all we're saddened by Merry's death at the SAA, we focus on the many, many other kittens we manage to save. They far outweigh these heartbreaking situations, thankfully :)

    I think little Merry wasn't just underdeveloped. The wide-set eyes and the typical form of the head are very suggestive of Down syndrome
    She came to you for lots of love and cuddles, and I bet she got them, and as many as she could wish for. She soaked up all the love bestowed on her, and when she had enough to tide her over till one of you rescuers will come and collect her, she made her way to the bridge, where she will be whole and healthy.....

    Run free and be merry at the Bridge, little one!!!

    Mum knew there was something wrong with her little one, nevertheless it is so sad to see another little one pass on. She was so cute but didn't look quite right, as Jiskefet said, perhaps Downs.

    Much as we would love them all to live, sometimes they have to leave and join their companions at Rainbow Bridge. She knew love in her short life, that is what matters.
