@HonoraryNerd:  I’m so sorry! I promise you that her foster mom’s home *was* her “home” while she was there – she wasn’t worried about her future, about whether she had another/new home to go to. I’ve fostered many kittens and I loved every one of them. I completely believe that they did everything possible for her. Little kittens are fragile, sadly.

Could you do something to say goodbye now? Light a candle for her or donate something to a shelter in her name? Maybe that would help. Other than that there’s only time, and knowing that you can honor her memory by taking in another kitten/cat when and if you’re ready.

I know how sad it is to lose a pet. My cat and her kittens died a while back and I was crushed.

I don’t know if it helps to say this, but you will love again. The father of my kittens was very upset after they died, and wandered around the area crying (this was when I was living abroad near a feral cat colony… the cats interbreed with the local wildcats and take on some of their behaviours, including father cats playing a more active role in feeding the young). I ended up taking in Daddy cat, who is now sitting next to me, and I love him more than almost anything in the world.

A few weeks later, I also found a tiny abandoned kitten, no more than a few weeks old, whom I fed with a medical syringe. She is also sat next to me now. She’s my little companion.

I promise you that love is possible the second time around!

So sorry! I have raised many orphaned kittens and I have found I get a far beter survival rate when I use homemade formula and add colostrum powder to it before serving. Perhaps you could share that info with the foster Mom and your vet someday.

So sorry.  Grieve as you need, but keep your heart open to the next furry baby who needs a forever home.  Sending healing thoughts…
