Alice, we did euthanize. It was excruciating because they had survived a
year ~ though small they were healthy. They went downhill quickly as cats
often do, esp FeLV+ cats. By the slowly die off, I meant first one died and
then another and then the mama. Last night we had to make a decision to have
a kitten euthanized shortly after she was rescued from the flood area
because she was so sick, so small and had injuries that would have meant
drilling into her bones and several surgeries to repair. We got opinions
from 3 vets and they all made the same recommendation.

Laurie, if the kittens were in so much pain, why didn't you end their pain
sooner? I told my little kitties right from the start, if they got to a
point where they were miserable, I would help them over the rainbow bridge,
no matter how heartbreaking it would be for me. I can't let them
suffer!!Alice ([EMAIL PROTECTED])
