Please pray for Ria's soul

We lost Ria not long ago, I just got the call from the emergency vet's office. His little body could not take it anymore and he stopped breathing. He had a severe respiratory infection and had serious difficulty breathing.

He was 4 1/2 months old and a sweetheart. He is one of three brothers. We will all miss him dearly...

In a heartbeat, my dear. I truly believe there is a kitty heaven and he is there well and safe and happy, purring away knowing you loved him.

I am very sorry about Ria. It's so hard to lose a pet. I'll be thinking of you and Ria.

Oh Saph, I'm so sorry. Poor little guy hardly had a chance. But his last few days were full of love and affection. And like Katie says, he'll be waiting for you...

So sad. Karen's right. Hardly a chance. But he got warmth and love from his brothers and you, he wasn't alone.
Prayers for the strength and health of the other 2.

Like Katie and Karen, I believe he'll be waiting for you too. Are the other two babies okay?

One is just fine, the other is in between. He has no energy, but tonight has been good for Kass. I brought both of them in the washroom because Kass is a bit congested and I don't want him to get as bad as Ria was. So I ran the shower for almost an hour and sat there with them wrapped in a towel.. I turned the water off, wiped Kass' nose, and he could smell the food I had there for him so he ate it off my finger. He is eating extremely well tonight and I'm really happy.

I think now that both are fed I will go to bed for a couple of hours until it is time to feed them again. Glad I called in and took a sick day tomorrow. I should eat something or drink something.. I need groceries but I spent all the money on the vet bills :(
Will have some apple juice and go to bed. I've only had two slices of pizza and a chai tea all day.
Thanks for the support guys, I'll let everyone know how little Kass and Leo are doing soon.

Leo is running around happy as can be, and Kass is still sleeping away his sickness.

Kass has been eating alot since last night. I got up at 4am to feed them and we sat in the bathroom all together with the steam, and i wiped his nose to keep it from crusting so he doesn't have difficulty breathing. He was also a very hungry kitty at 9am! I am glad his appetite is coming back.

Leo is still a pig, trying to pick out of the can while I finger feed his brother.

I am submitting the claims forms for Ria's passing to the insurance company, they said they will reimburse everything. I need to call the humane society shelter and tell them, and ask for a refund. 48 hours after bringing a kitten home and he passes away...
