Farewell, Baby-Dot and Baby-Tuxie

This is Baby-Dot, having a little look around.

And this is Baby-Tuxie, going exploring. These two brothers were abandoned, along with one other sibling, who is being fostered by someone else, by their feral mother in a lady's yard. She was caring for them on her porch, but couldn't take them inside because her son is very allergic to cats. She called a vet, who knew that PDX Pride's Mom fosters tiny kittens and she took them in. Unfortunately, they both died within hours of each other only a few days later. They were only 2 1/2 weeks old. There was a problem with their formula, but that in itself wasn't enough to have caused them to go to the Rainbow Bridge. Maybe there was something wrong with their little insides. Despite the short time that they knew them PDX Pride's Mom and Dad grew attached to the little ones and are still very sad about it.

                                                 Two little tuxies were fighting for life.
                                                 Their foster Mom helped in their strife,
                                                            But they left anyway
                                                            And all we can say
                                                 Is, "Have fun, tiny tuxies, in you new life!"

I agree, so sad, made me cry. I wish I could have given them a purr and a head butt.

Rest in peace, little ones. There are lots of momma cats with little babies up at the Bridge that will nurse you and cuddle you and love you. Please don't be afraid. It is a good place.

Momma is bawlin' like a baby now...

What sweet little tuxies. So sad that they didn't make it.

It is sad to learn they did not make it. But at least they had some wonderful loving before they left.

Thanks for doing so much to help cats!

Thank you,

This is very sad. CB and Armani's foster mom just took in some newborn kittens and they went to the bridge quickly too. All very sad then little ones don't make it.
