Thank you everyone..i gave him a burial just like what i will do for my other pets...
I just can't stop thinking of him yet...I just feel maybe i could have done something wrong..maybe i did not feed him the proper way...

Thank you again and bless you and your little critters :)

Really sorry he didn't make it. :( Try not to blame yourself too much, you did a good thing by trying and it's difficult to hand rear babies from such a young age. It sounds like you did your very best.

I'm so sorry it didn't work but you should feel so proud of yourself for coming to the forum, for trying so hard, for really and genuinely caring. You are a good person and your story, although sad, still warmed my heart :hearts:

I raised 9 kittens from 2 days old. Its very time consuming every 2 hour feeds, rubbing each ones bum to have them wee and poop, then keeping them warm in a small tank/cage but not to hot. Yeah very hard gets easier when they got older and there feeding hours get more spaced out.
Made a link website to help new people find online shops, breeders and other links.
Still under construction.
