Fretful Friday

A few days ago we received the sad news from Finland (East) that Sampo's lady cat Nippe had given birth early to three dead kittens. This was very distressing for everyone, but as we all know and must respect, Nature knows what is best and these kitties were not going to be able to live.  Nippe's human took her to a feline specialist vet and to great surprise, there was still one living kitten inside her. Here is the X-ray and you can see a curled up little spine.
Now we are pleased to say that Nippe has settled and is doing very well, so we have hope that this little kitten will not be born until the due date which is at the end of next week. Please cross paws that all goes well. This little son or daughter of Sampo is miraculously still alive - could we dare to hope that it will make it ?

We are purring our hardest, even the Human. We are hoping against hope that one baby Nippette or Samp-son can stay where he belongs till the right time comes. XOXOXOXO all around.

So sad to hear about the three baby cats. We hope the remaining one will be born healthy. Lots of purrs for Nippe and her baby cat.

I just read back after reading today's post. I didn't realise that Nippe had already lost three kittens. I am very sorry for the loss for her and her family and for you also.
