death of an animal, violent 

my dog killed a kitten. it had sneaked into, like, the enclosure of our house where we don't keep dumdum on a leash and we tried to prevent her but before we knew it she'd caught the kitten's mid-body in her teeth and shook it violently

we somehow managed to make her drop it. all of this happened in like 20 seconds but by that time the kitten was.. well, fucking obviously it was too injured to move

we thought the spine was broken and it wouldn't live, but me and my sister, we took it to the vet's anyway. but he wasn't there

it was moving and breathing so we cleaned it up and warmed it and it tried to walk for a bit so for a while we were sure that it'd be in some way disabled but that it'll live. then it started choking on something. it was like that for about 5 minutes, and then it died.

so now i'm stuck in a limbo of thinking what we could've done differently. what i could've done differently. it happened in front of me, if anyone had any chance of stopping dumdum, it was me. or having some semblance of medical knowledge on what to do in situations like these

i have to say that on top of an already god-awful year, watching a kitten die in my hand was the absolute cherry on top

@proust I’m sorry. Sympathy for dealing with that.
