my kitty didn't make it through surgery

well i got the c-section done that day asap. The vet called an hour later said everything went fine. She went to go check on something, came back to see my cat and she went into shock and died. She tried to bring her back but it just wasn't working. So 15 mins after talking to her i got the bad phone call. But i still have her four little babies that are part of her to remember her by. My friends cat had kittens and she adopted them, took them like they were hers so everything is fine. thanks everyone for your advice.
Lana :sad:

unfortunatly cats have to die for people to realise spaying and neutering is so very important.

Im sorry about your loss, please use it as a learning experience and make sure the kittens are adopted out to proper homes with spay/neuter contracts and an adoption fee.

and PLEASE spay/neuter and pets you have in the future.

Eleni

My thoughts are with you. VERY sad to hear. Glad that the little ones are doing well.

Remember that without the bad there would be no good. This kept me going through the recent loss of our 13yr old shepX, Lorax.

I agree with Eleni - adoption fees and contracts are VERY important to help ensure wonderful homes.

Blessed be.

So Sorry for your loss

I am so sorry for your loss. :sad: We lost two dogs in six weeks earlier this year - one to renal failure and one to heart disease (long term). I truly feel for you.

I'm also sorry for your loss. It's beautiful that her babies are being cared for by your friend's cat. Isn't it wonderful how they take in babies and accept them? Cats really are special!

I'm sorry to hear about your cats, and I'm sorry that some people are insensitive enough to use this as an opportunity to lecture you.

I feel the exact same way.

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Hopefully your kitties are doing very well and you are having fun being their mama.
