After a day of joy…a day of sadness.
Dashiell’s sister, Junie-Purr, had a singleton kitten five weeks ago. She was very sick with pneumonia during her pregnancy and needed emergency antibiotics. Then, suddenly, last Friday, Meg found Junie dead in her bed cuddling her kitten. She isn’t sure what caused it, as Junie seemed to be doing better, but she has sent Junie’s body to Tufts Veterinary for a necropsy to find out what happened.
Yesterday, Bugsie, Dash’s little niece, started refusing to eat.
Meg cuddled her and kept her warm and tried to get her to eat whilst watching the Inauguration.
Later in the evening, little Bugsie seemed to be perking up a little. She cuddled Meg and they watched the Inauguration Celebration together. Then they went to bed.
Unfortunately, this morning, little Bugsie was gone. She just wasn’t strong enough. Meg’s vet says it is likely she was damaged from the strong antibiotics the ER vets had to use to save her mother. Her little gut was not able to handle solid food, and her little bones were soft.
My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend has stopped running today. Sleep well in Tuonela, dear, sweet Junie, with your beloved kitten Bugsie.

We are sorry for the loss of these loved – and loving – friends,
Thank you Koshka. While my precious Bugsie was frail, she ate better before we cuddled & my spirits were somewhat elevated. Junie loved her little Bugsie with her whole life, as did I. At least they are a dual star in the sky now. Does not help my broken heart.

I’m so sorry to hear this. 😦
Oh! I am so sorry for your loss. Junie AND her baby daughter, Bugsie. So incredibly sad. I never know what to say at a time like this except that I’m sure you will all be together again one day. But that’s not much consolation right now. I am so sorry for their human mama.
