pity party minute

Last night was just awful. The kittens are missing and most likely dead. I last saw them playing around our deck about 3 in the afternoon. No trace of them now. We choose to live in a secluded area that includes many predators, but the coyote problem has gotten out of control. They are not supposed to come close to the house. We've only had the kittens three weeks and now they are gone. They had brought such joy to us, especially because everything seemed so uncertain. I just feel like everytime we have just a little bit of happiness it gets snatched away. I know I have many blessings in my life and I am grateful. But damn. I feel so helpless I can't go look for the kittens I can't help around the house. I have to depend on DH for everything and he is not the best caretaker. I keep telling myself things could be worse. Be thankful. Crying is not going to make it better but it seems like all I can do.

I have lived in rural areas with pets and it's hard when they go missing. I hope they are back soon and unmolested by coyotes. Kittens tend to have good instincts, so my hope is that they have holed up under your porch.

I'm so sorry - it's heart breaking when a pet is missing. I'm hoping your kittens are safe somewhere.

Oh, this is so sad. I am so sorry.

You must be so worried. That does sound scary. I do hope the kittens are using their survival instincts. Kittens can move lighting fast so I am hoping they've run for cover and found a safe hiding place. I hope they come home to you soon!
