I'm sorry my pet,
He cut you open.
But if not for the vet,
You'd have never awoken.

How could I make it up to you,
or even slightly ease your pain?
It's like there's nothing I can do,
My sympathies are in vain.

Still, I hope that you can see,
When you look me in the eye,
Your guardian I'll always be,
For you I'd gladly die. </3
My pet cat Maao was pregnant and went into labor on the 5th of May, but she couldn't deliver normally. By the time we go to the vet (the next day), it was a little too late-the kittens didn't survive.

The four unborn corpses had to be surgically removed from Maao's belly.

That day still haunts me. Images of the lifeless kittens flash before my eyes. I tell myself 'They could've been alive, had I reacted sooner, got her to the vet earlier...'

I suppose waging a battle against Fate is a futile fight.
I'm just grateful to God that Maao's alive and slowly recovering from the surgery. Without maao, I would've been as good as dead </3


I pray that all your Loved ones stay safe from harm's way.

That is a very adorable cat, who is made only more adorable by the fact that she seems to want to pounce on the camera :D ... and her eyes are gorgeous.

I'm sorry to hear about the kittens and the poem was an imaginative and emotional representation of that. I can say I definitely felt your pain as I read it

Oh wow. I am so very sorry. I never experienced anything like that, though I was living with friends who insisted their cat be allowed to have kittens, and then did very little to care care of the mom or the babies. I was terrified something like that would happen, but we lucked out. Your poem is very sweet.

You're cat is so beautiful. I love her eyes. I'm sorry to hear about her little babies though. Maybe someday, if it's even still possible for her, she might have them again. It probably wouldn't be good for her at all though...

You have such a nice poem. ^^ I'm a poet, though, my poetry is cheesy.

A similar thing happened with my mom's cat Mocha. She was about ten or eleven when she got pregnant and went into labor too soon. She had two still-born kittens. :hug: Your cat will survive because she's strong and stubborn (all cats are.)

Eleven years. We were sitting a male cat we had been assured was sterile. As it turns out he was just malnourished as he got our Mocha pregnant after we had fed him up for a couple weeks.
