This morning our two kittens died. Fiona started to not do well yesterday and struggled through the night. Dickon however was running all over the house yesterday, so his death is a surprise.
My girls are sad. It is alot of work to try to care for kittens that have been abandoned. They worked so hard everyday to feed them, bathe them and give them love. We have had litters of kittens before so we knew the signs to watch for indicating development and tried to follow that. Sigh....
They may have had some internal issues that we did not know about - they were abandoned, after all. Or perhaps they had not been well cared for initially, I guess we will never know.
Tim is out digging their grave, and the girls are cleaning up the space where they cared for them.
Meanwhile life goes on, as it always does. The work of life must continue. Lindsay and I planted our garden on Monday. Four kinds of tomatoes, 3 kinds of sweet peppers, lettuce, bush beans, purple podded pole beans, nasturtiums (both for edible purposes as well as bug repellers), French baby carrots. We will plant our French melons next week as well as our potatoes. It is all a big experiment to see how everything grows. We are trying things we like and a few things new to us.
Lindsay gave a riding lesson this morning. I am working on co-op membership. In a bit I am going to take my ipod and go out to mow. I like this time every week - I get about an hour and a half to listen to good things and think my thoughts!
What are you up to today?
