Life and Death in Minature

The Four Kittens The Four Kittens
Originally uploaded by Noel Welsh.

About 2 weeks ago Bree brought home some kittens that had been found behind a shop. They needed socialisation, and looking after; if they stayed at the RSPCA they'd probably get ill and the nurses wouldn't have enough time to give them the attention they need. As we took last week off to fix up things around the house it seemed like a good fit.

You can see them in that photo looking very adorable. Now, two of them are dead, and one is slowly recovering from illness. It has been harrowing. One night we stayed up to 3AM nursing one of them; an hour later it had died.
