Poor Blakely, the runt kitten

I found him dead under momma cat Tuesday. I'm not sure why he died, maybe he did not get enough to eat, maybe she smothered him accidentally. We went to bury him, the kids though they saw him moving as we added the dirt, so they dug him up and insisted that we take him to the after hours vet clinic to make sure he was dead. Yes he was. I was certain he was dead, he had not moved for hours and I could not see him breathing. They reburied him in the yard, under Sara's pine tree she brought home from girls scouts a few years ago as a 12 inch tall sapling. In spite of our neglect and the kids running into it/dogs digging beside it, etc, the tree has grown to 7 ft tall.
