I wasn't sure whether to post this in obituaries, How are you feeling or here. :(

As most of you know, I have been following the kitten cams and late last year, ten feral kittens were rescued (The Jungle Kittens). They had all sorts of physical problems and medical issues: roundworm, tape worm, ringworm, upper repository infections and in one case, pneumonia. It was a long battle to get them healthy and ready for adoption. A few of them nearly didn't make it, but finally they were able to be adopted and they all went to great forever homes.

Two of them, Jaguar and Siberia, were very closely bonded and it was hoped they would find a home together. They did, even if it meant they went due south from British Columbia, Canada to Washington, USA.

Everything seemed fine, but Jaguar wasn't himself over past week or so and his brother couldn't understand why his pal couldn't play with him. Jag was taken to the vet and diagnosed with Feline Infectious Peritonitis, a fatal disease that is (as I understand it) a mutation of a disease that a lot of cats are exposed to. It's a case that some a very few cats develop this fatal form of the disease.

We heard about this yesterday. His new family were determined to give him as much love and make him comfortable in the time he had left. Sadly, that wasn't very long and Jaggy Jag passed away today. :(

I am truly amazed that these kittens went through so much. Had they not been caught then not one of them would have survived.

It's a credit to Shelly the foster mom and the support she received from Dr Ferguson the vet and LAPS, the shelter Shelly works for that these kittens grew to be such amazing young cats.

I am very sad to hear about Jag, but am thankful that he knew so much love in his short life. I'm also glad that he didn't suffer for too long.

RIP Jaguar the Jungle Kitten.

Me too. Thankfully, the family already had two cats and Jag and Sibs had settled in nicely with them. But they really were very close.

Awww. So sorry about Jag. :( Doesn't seem fair after all they went through to get them healthy.

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
