  • Today I lost a precious kitten and I couldn't stop blaming myself even though there was nothing more I could do... I really needed to listen to this video ;__;

  • You should build a very small but big enough tree house I use that as small sight to bury your kitten it’s what I’ve done

  • I’m not a foster parent but we lost our new kitten after only 11 days and she was just 12 weeks old. She turned out to have FIP which vet had reckoned was simple cat flu. It’s a double bereavement as we lost a dog only 3 weeks before. We are reeling and I feel like hell, but after six weeks (need to wait for the virus to die off) we will try another kitten or cat, from an organisation with healthier animals. This video has truly helped me at an awful time, thank you SO much ❤️

  • One of my tiny neonatal orphaned kittens just passed away after 3 long weeks of fighting. I am devastated. Thank you so much Kitten Lady for all that you do. Your videos have taught me so much in this journey. I went from knowing absolutely nothing about kittens to caring for 2 little orphans. I appreciate this video on grief and mourning. I am going to take the next 24 hours to just let it all out. Then I will learn from this experience and take comfort in knowing that she had a loving home for the past 3 weeks. Goodbye my sweet little Riley. You have taught me so much in your short time on this earth. Rest peacefully little one. You were so so loved.

  • Thank you for calling fosters or cat owners "parents". My hubby and I are making the difficult step from childless to childfree to regain some positivity into a very hard infertility situation and are raising two kittens who had a rough start. We are a family, the 4 of us and it helps to know that out there there are people who understand that one can be maternal or paternal outside the species barrier. Lots of love.

  • We‘ve lost 3 foster kittens this week 😢 came out they had a disfunctional heart. Our veterinarian believes the parents were relatives. We fostered them 4 weeks, did everything after the other passed away 😢 it‘s so hard to realize

  • This is amazing. I lost one of my three foster kittens to parvo this morning. She took a turn for the worst and within 2 hours she passed away. And we had to give back the other two. Thank you so much for this video.

  • I lost my first foster kitten today. I have fostered over 30, and her 3 litter mates are all amazing. They were about a week old when I received them, they all had uri and were on meds. She was so small, and just didn't have the will to thrive. I'm hearbroken. Thank you for this video.

  • My sweet little Jason is passing from (most probably) panleukopenia right now. I was fostering him and his two siblings and it was very unexpected. Looking back on the past few days, there were some small signs. I feel so guilty that I didn’t recognize them. I just keep thinking if there was anything I could have done even though I know there wasn’t. No one knew they were sick. Thank you for this video. I’m torn up right now and it offered some comfort.

  • I am not a foster parent but I lost both of my doggies on the same day 1 year and 6 months ago. I still cry at least once a week for them. It really made me feel better that you said that "many people say their healing process begins when they start helping another animal." I have been wanting another dog with my whole heart since i moved out but ive felt so guilty to get one. Thank you for saying this because I now understand a bit more why I have been so desperate for another animal friend.

  • I adopted a 5 weeks old kitten 2 weeks ago but he died in my hands 2 days ago... It was around 5AM he was with me in the living room with my friends, I put him in my bed to sleep then I went to the bathroom on my way I heard a loud meow then I rushed to the bed he was shaking & crying, while I took him down near his food/potty place then his poop exploded on the wall & he started shaking more & crying, then he died in like 30 seconds, I didn't know what to do & I was shaking, his pupils became so black & enlarged, he was a so timid kitten & so healthy but I don't know what happened till now :(

  • I know I’m 6 months late but how is Mumma Pine? I would be interested to know how cats cope with the death of their kitten. Do they know? Do they ‘pine for their loss’ do they look for the kitten? Do they howl? How can you help a cat that’s lost all its kittens? From a fostering point of view... so so sad for poor little Twinkle 😔

  • i lost a five week old kitten two weeks ago. she was only in my care for a couple of days; i found her abandoned in a parking lot in 90 degree weather. she seemed like she was improving and getting stronger until she had several seizures. by the time i got to the vet, she was completely unresponsive and they told me she wasn't going to come out of it. i had to make the decision to euthanize and i can honestly say its the hardest thing i have ever had to do. i've cried for her every day since. i know i only knew her less than a week but she changed my life. im proud i was able to offer her those last days of comfort and love, and i hope to see her again, in whatever comes after being alive. i love you, spider. i miss you. i'll see you again.

    • I am so sorry.. . Accidents happen... it's not your fault. Just take it as a lesson to be more aware of your surroundings. Be careful giants. Aali-Imran 3:185 كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَآئِقَةُ ٱلْمَوْتِۗ وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوْنَ أُجُورَكُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِۖ فَمَن زُحْزِحَ عَنِ ٱلنَّارِ وَأُدْخِلَ ٱلْجَنَّةَ فَقَدْ فَازَۗ وَمَا ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلَّا مَتَٰعُ ٱلْغُرُورِ Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained [his desire]. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion. My kitten Banana has just passed away this morning. From worm in his stomach. We have consulted a vet, he got better for some days but got worse last night. I pray for Allah to allow me to meet him again someday. He was such a playful kitten..

  • Today our dog (a lab) attacked two of our 2-month-old kittens. One immediately went into a seizure and appears to be at least partly paralyzed. The other's skull seems to have been crushed and she is bleeding out of her eye and nose. My mom tried to give them some ether to put them out of their misery and give them a painless death, but it didn't work (vet is way too expensive and might not even be able to do much for them). They're still alive and suffering and there's not really anything we can do about it. That hurts worse than if they had a quick death. Julius and Moon, you have been some of my favourite kittens we've ever had, and we've gone through a lot. I wholeheartedly wish I could save you, and it pains me deeply to know how much you're suffering right now. I promise to take care of your siblings (yes, all of them) and love them with all of my heart. And if my some miracle you survive, I'm never letting you go. Love you forever.

At least I learned that I should check up on them more often, even trough the night, and even if their mom is there.

  • Just lost my first foster kitten, Milo yesterday morning (RIP my little moonpie). I’ve never fostered before but I have 3 cats (one I got when he was 4 weeks), a work cat (a wild cat that’s been spayed and took me 8 months to get her to trust me) and I have also taken care of a momma cat with 4 kittens who I found homes for (kept 1 of the kittens -my 3rd). Anywho I got Milo about a week ago and his sibling. On our way to Vet a few hours after I got them, the other kitten passed. Milo was so much stronger and so I really thought he was going to make it. The Vet unfortunately gave me false hope as well. They didn’t even mention the Fading Kitten Syndrome to me so I had to idea what to do or to look for. I am so upset with myself that I didn’t get a second opinion and I’m also upset with my Vet. I probably will be switching Vets. But I miss Milo so much. I can’t stop crying and thinking about him. I love this video because she’s right. It’s just hard when your going through all these emotions, the blaming yourself, the resentment for others who should have helped and then being thankful that you got to show that kitten what love was. I just wanted to vent a bit.

  • I've never fostered a kitten but when my cat had babies she just took off. Left my 15 year old self with four little wee ones and sadly three of them died but I refused to let the last one pass. He started very young with eating moist cat food. He lived for 2 year but he was my baby. I would call for him and he'd come running with a meow. One day I woke up to the sound of a yowl and wondered what it was. I went back to sleep and my dad came in saying he got hit by a car. T-T RIP my baby Bobby.

I want to make sure I do everything I can to make sure she will be ok and her babies will be as well. She means everything to me. Please help. I heard that a cat giving birth too young can be really bad and I need to know everything I can possibly do to make it go smoother.

  • I'm a shattered mess today. I've lost 9 this week... I lost one Tuesday after a 3 month battle of internal issue we had no idea what happened. Then lost two on Thursday with horrible FeLv and sickness. Then I lost 5 from that same house, Friday from sickness and FIV. And this morning I lost my baby kitten Kermit. He had a broken his leg at 4 weeks old... I fought for his survival and now at 8 weeks he faded. I have no idea where to go from here. I still have 13 sitting in the kitten room but I don't know how I can handle losing anymore

  • I've never fostered kittens, but I want to one day when I have my own house. I thought of something yesterday though, and maybe this is a weird question, but I can't find the answer: What do you do with a foster kitten's body if one dies? Do you take it back to a shelter, take it to a vet to be cremated, bury it? I guess it depends on where you got the foster kittens from? The only thing that worries me about fostering is kittens dying. I know it will probably happen if you foster enough, and I was imagining like a little dead kitten graveyard in your yard and how horrible that would be, but I don't think what happens.... but I also don't know what happens?

    minmelethuireb2 (Rebekah)minmelethuireb2 (Rebekah)4 months ago
    • It definitely depends on the program you foster for but most often they will take the kitten back and cremate as they would for most deceased animals. I have lost 5 kittens throughout my years fostering and each time they go back to the shelter for cremation (if they weren’t already at the shelter with the veterinarian).

  • The tip about being kind to yourself was major for me to hear. I was raised by abusive parents who insisted that I'm permanently irresponsible and everything bad that happens in my life is my fault. It's so hard for me not to constantly wonder if Funk died because I wasn't a good enough foster godparent, if there was something I did wrong that made him die. I can't torture myself like they tortured me. Little Funk had a good death because I loved him and gave him a warm, soft place to fall asleep with his mama.

  • Thank you so much, Hannah. I just lost a foster kitten after a 10 day battle and it was only my second time fostering - your words of comfort and advice are getting me through this day. Thank you for what you do and for addressing this as it's a part of fostering you don't often hear about and it is a very real part I'm realizing. Thank you so much.

We took care of her through the weekend but lost her yesterday evening. She was so sweet and spunky we thought for sure she would make it. We are so sad. Our neighbor has tons of feral cats and they just keep breeding, we are frustrated! Thank you for what you do!

  • I lost a kitten this morning. He had 'a bit' of pneumonia as well as a herniated diaphragm (from trauma, birth defect, who knows) and such labored breathing, and diarrhea to begin with. he was on antibiotics for a few days and his diarrhea got better and he even played a little and ate on his own. today he just couldn't breathe anymore and began to pant. it was so so painful to see him like that. this is the third kitten i've lost this year and this is the most grief i have ever felt. i cannot stop crying for him. i went through your channel to find something that might help and this was it

  • Thank you so much for this video. I fostered a litter of 3 two week old orphans and lost two of them in recent days. It has been absolutely devastating. I am finding peace in having given them a cozy home for their days, that they knew love, and I am so grateful for having learned from them. Doing my best to not wonder, “what if I did this/what if I tried that,” and instead trust that I did my very best and I’ll be better prepared to help babies in the future. Pouring all of my love into their sister now who is thriving and who I hope will be our success story!! Thank you again. This brought me great comfort ❤️

  • We Took In A Pregnant Momma Cat About A Week Ago. It’s Our Fifth Time Fostering And Our First Time Taking In A Mom- All Of Our Other Fosters Have Been Kittens 4-6 Weeks Old. She Had Her Babies Wednesday At About 1:40 AM, A Litter Of Five. Well, About Six Hours Ago, I Found One Of The Kittens Dead. We Think The Mom Is About Three But A First Time Mom, And She Wasn’t Aware Of The Kitten When She Crushed And Suffocated Him. The Shelter Said We Should Just Let The Mother Be If She’s Breastfeeding Well And If She’s Not Hurting a the Babies, And Since It Happened Over Night, We Weren’t With Her. I Was Absolutely Devastated, And Started Tearing Myself Apart. But I Came Back To Your Chanel And Decided To Take Some Time And Feel The Pain. So I Just Want To Say Thank You For Making This Video And Helping Me Feel At Peace. My Whole Family Is Just Kind Of Wallowing, And That Kitten Wouldn’t Have Lived At All If It Weren’t For You Encouraging Me To Foster In The First Place, So Thank You.
