I am so sorry to read about your FeLV cat, Bridget's death.  I agree with
everyone else; it wasn't your fault that she died.  
I think I'm going to keep telling myself what people around you told you.  I
tried my best, and something happened. I cried all day up until about an
hour ago.  It wasn't going to bring her back and it wasn't helping me or the
other kittens I need to take care of.  It is so hard to walk into the kitten
room and see the other three kittens looking around for their sister.  I had
to keep them separated because the other three played too rough with her but
I'd take her in their several times a day and allow supervised play time.  
I let them see her body and they smelled her and curled up with her for a
while. I wonder if they understand. My husband is going to burry her

Oh, Kim, I have been through this so many times and so many times I've said
"I killed my cat/tortoise/lizard/snake/whatever." You did not kill her. You
did the best you could at the time with the information you had, and I am so
sorry that you feel this way. It's normal to blame oneself but hindsight is
20/20; a cliche, I know, but so true.
On St Patrick's Day my FeLV+ cat, Bridget, died at the vet. She was there to
be spayed but never made it to the table - they put her under and she died.
Horrible. But what was even more horrible was that I had a premonition that
she would die during surgery, for weeks. A voice literally screamed in my
head. DON'T DO IT, SHE WILL DIE. And yet I did it, and got that awful phone
call from the vet. That night I posted on this forum - "it's my fault, I
killed her." I was so grateful for the assurances from other members that
no, I didn't kill her.....I tried my best and something happened. I am sure
that many other folks will have a similar story.
