The last little kitten is well loved if nothing else. Both parents dote on him (not sure of gender) constantly. The kitten seems to be doing alright, and remains warm and fairly plump (is nursing). I'm still praying hard and crossing my fingers hoping this little one makes it. Here is another family photo.
Yesterday we held a little funeral for the three lost kittens. It was "Iris Day" and #1 suggested that we buy iris flowers to plant over each kitten as a memorial. Unfortunately, the plants were pretty expensive ($8 each) at the store, so we bought one and I cut it into three. I hope it survives, at least with all of the rain it stands a better chance. We chose "Rare Treat" which is supposed to bloom white flowers with striped purple/blue edges. We gave the kittens honorary names to remember them by. The little hairless white one that was stillborn is Arthur (back marker), the hairless blue and white one is Alvin (middle marker), and the white rex coated one is Arya (front marker).
