Terrible News – The Gamblers Seven Weeks Old

With heavy heart I have to add to my diary that last week I lost poor Roulette very suddenly. This was of course totally unexpected and very hard to accept but as a cat breeder this is one of those terrible facts that we have to accept.

His brother, Blackjack, has shown no signs of illness and I am not worried about him. Of course after what has happened I am keeping a close eye on him but at the moment I am not worried.

Another good week for both the Gamblers with good weight gains and development. I do wish they would be more cooperative when it comes to weaning as at the moment they are showing no interest in eating solid food. I think at five weeks old they really need to be eating to keep the weight on as they grow. Improvements on the boys feet are slow but I hope as they get older they will improve.

Another excellent week for both Roulette and Blackjack with good weight gains and development. Both the boys moved downstairs this week with their pals Gandalf and Merlin for ‘The Magicians Litter’. Roulette’s foot is slightly better as he becoming more active while Blackjack is not as active yet so is showing less of an improvement in his feet. Both boys are still showing promise as far as show potential is concerned and more importantly their temperaments are developing well and they are both confident little kittens.

    So sad Ross. I could never be a breeder but I expect you learn to deal with the loss.

      You never really get used to it but as you say you learn to deal with the loss.
