Farewell, Jack Blain
Little Jack Blain didn't have his own blog, but you can read more about him at Friends Furever. He was the runt of the litter and these kittens are the ones most likely to have problems. He had some kind of congenital heart defect and the vet said that he probably wouldn't have a long life, but his family wanted to give him the best life possible. They loved him dearly and he loved them right back. He loved staying close to his Mom and would meow for her if she left the room without him noticing. He played finger skateboard with the kids. He loved to look out the window and watch the birds. He was very much intrigued by the Christmas tree. He lived a mostly normal kitten life, but if he played or ran too much, he had to stop for a while and catch his breath. He was just two days short of being seven months old when the end came. Now he's at the Rainbow Bridge playing with all the other kitties and he can run and play just as much as he likes.
Little Jack Blain loved to run and play,
But his insufficient heart got in the way.
He had to stop and breathe;
Now he has his reprieve.
Jack went to the Bridge, where he can run all day.
