RIP Little Squee

I posted a few days ago in my art thread about the kitten I was getting. The next day, the kitten went missing.

They found her body today. We never got a chance to name her, so we are giving her a name now. She will be dubbed "The Little Squee" because that was what Skyewillow referred to her as when I told her about her and it stuck.

RIP. </3

The Little Squee.







Her mama.



Her two bigger siblings.

I am so sorry for your loss. ): It's always sad to have someone you love...... Go someplace else. At least Little Squee is in a better place now. :'D

If you don't mind me asking, did you know her cause of death?

Thank you.

Her mama was an outdoor cat who belonged to my girlfriend's neighbor, but she wasn't getting enough food, so when Ci noticed, she started feeding and taking care of them and they settled themselves in Ci's backyard. The kitten was already very malnourished and sickly though. All the cats were infested with fleas too. Ci had been handfeeding her supplements and gave her a bath and wormed her, but I guess it was too late. She went missing two days ago out of the blue. Most likely, she crawled away and just hid herself and...died.

She was half the size of her other two siblings, riddled with fleas, and suffering from malnutrition. The kittens are over six weeks old, but they're still nursing (which isn't good for the mother).

The mother and Siamese (Little Squee, </3) were just skin and bones. =/


I'm still kicking myself wishing I'd done more. The night before she died, I tried coaxing her to eat some supplemental milk, but she wasn't as interested as she should have been .... /sigh.

Worms and fleas are the likely causes of Squee's death. ='/

-great big hugs to both of you- I'm so sorry that you lost The Little Squee. At least you tried your best, Ci. That's more than their original owners were even trying to do!!

I have to say, that black sibling looks just like the now missing No-More did when I saved him!

I'm so sorry for your loss... :( At least you know you tried to offer her a home and help. It was just a little too late for her.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is much harder to save a malnurished kitten than it is to save a malnurished adult. Kittens do have more/different requirements when compared to an adult. You did the best you could.
