Cashmere and Sterling are the proud parents of 5 kittens. One silver male, one silver female, one golden female and two golden males were born on June 17, 2009. These kittens will be ready to go to their new homes around August 29, 2009.
We regret to say that we lost little Manny Friday night July 17, 2009. Manny was only 1/3 the size of the others and he tried very hard to keep up with them. He roamed the room and played with the toys and his siblings but every day Manny did less. Friday morning he took a few steps and then he had to take a nap. Upon listening to his chest he had the sounds of wish wish while the others sounded like beat beat. Manny must have had some kind of heart problem.
Manny's body temperature started to drop Friday after supper. He was put on a blanket with his mama and the heat was turned on in his room. He passed shortly thereafter in his sleep. He must have only been meant to be with us on earth for that short time. His time was great while he was here. He had his mama, his siblings, lots of toys and hundreds of hugs and kisses thrust upon him. Celebrate Manny's little life and know that he is very happy now in Kittyland and we will be with him eternally. When pictures are published weekly you not only get to enjoy our happiness but you also get to share in our sorrow.
* Manny had an umbilical cord hernia at birth. Our vet believes that the other 4 kittens compromised Manny's developmental growth in the womb.
