Wednesday morning when I got the kittens up for their 7 a.m. feeding, Gingerbum was having problems with his back legs. He was unable to walk. We dashed off to the vet. He got progressively worse over the next 36 hours and last night just before midnight I knew he was not getting better. He had lost the use of his back legs completely and was unable to use his bowels. Gingey and I spent a long sleepless night together. He cried and so did I. Gingey was only 22 days old.
When Gingey crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning he was gently cradled in my hands and I kissed his wee head repeatedly.
All of these photos were taken yesterday (October 25).
