And then there were five

Sadly, one of the tabby with white boys died yesterday -  he never learned to nurse and then got an infection. Despite round the clock care by the typist - it was just too much for his little system. Much as we hate to lose a baby - his struggles are now over.
The good news is the other five kittens in the H litter are definitely thriving and are fat and healthy.  Their mother Elina is proving to be an excellent mother.  Little Heather, the only girl, has doubled her birth weight and now weighs a whopping (for her) 149 gms - just a bit bigger than her brothers when they were born. She may not be the biggest but she is probably the feistiest.

Oh Elina, what a sad thing to hear! I am with you always and best of wishes for the five babies who were thriving and chubbier day by day.
