Ryan's coworker Ryan just inherited his fourth cat. I haven't met her yet, but her name is Freya, and she just lost a litter of kittens shortly after giving birth to them. The other Ryan has a ringtone that sounds like a kitten mewling, and my Ryan says that when Ryan got a text message last night, Freya curled up on the armchair and started making the saddest little noises. My Ryan teared up, and so did I when he told me the story.
Babies shouldn't die.
