Fading baby


The human here. I'm sorry, but I'm too exhausted to write for Tia today. I'm having to hand feed the baby that isn't gaining weight, as he lost again overnight when left with only one feed. This means he's being fed every two hours around the clock. I'm finding it very hard, and so is Tia who wails piteously every time I take him away for topping up. I don't know how much longer I can keep this up, but I know I'll go as long as I can. I just hope and pray that he doesn't have some hidden health defect that's preventing him from gaining. Keep praying, folks. I don't know when I'll write again. My priority for the next little while is these kittens, and next to that, I need sleep for myself whenever I manage to snatch some. I'll write every time I feel up to it, and will try and keep mom Trish up to date with what's going on with the little fading baby. Boy do I hope that what I'm doing is enough.






Thank you to all of you who stopped by and left comments, not just in these last few days, but over the last week as well. I'm sorry if I haven't commented back. I've tried with every one of you, but either you have word verification which i can't get past, or Blogger won't accept the comments for some reason. I'll keep trying whenever I have the energy. Know that I read every one of you though. thank you for being so supportive!

We are purring for all of you....we hope that baby pulls through - sometimes a little bottle feeding to get them over the hump helps.

Carly, don't worry about posting or commenting. There are only so many hours in the day, and keeping those kittens topped up has to be more important.

Torie said...

Hi Carly. I hope that the little one does well soon. I'm sure it's hard on you. Is there no way you could feed him in the pen?

Do you know anyone who is close by who could let you sleep for a while while they feed the baby?

Take care, and lots of hugs.

Oh and the comment thing-i'm having the same issue. I find that if you click on the link thing just above where you would normally write your comment. It's something frame it's called. That seems to work. Xxx.

Kari said...

We are praying harder than ever and begging The Lord to let this little boy make it. This has to be such a difficult time for all of you. Let the little one not feel your fear and despair through your hands but your strength and your love for him. You are doing an amazing job. We pray for God to grant you the strength to continue. Bless you.

We are sending some nursing purrs to get the little fella thriving and we send Carly some sleep credits. We have all decided to sleep in the sunshine for you Carly, so you won't need to and you can keep doing the splendid job you and Tia are doing.
