Some time this morning or last night Nastymaus (the cat lady living with Ettena's family) gave birth to five beautiful little kittens.
Tonight one of those five small beings died of menginitis. According to Ettena's the sister, the young cat baby cried with agony all day long and, in the end, pus was shooting from her head.
She didn't even open her eyes in her few hours of existence. All she ever experienced in her short life was the unthinkable torture she had to endure.
Do you think you had a lousy day? Believe me, mine was lousier. But all the things we worry about are trivialities built upon the millions of layers of icing we put on the cake of real life.
Today, this little kitten has had the lousiest day of us all.
It brings me on the verge of tears to think that it should be the best day in her entire life.

Well, she didn't bite me, so either she's not it or I'm just lucky. :-)
She had a bunch of baby kittens back then (April 2001). They were located in a bunk bed in a room at the end of the floor at Ettena's place. Unfortunately I don't remember what Mama Cat looked like.
