UPDATE 5/9/14 @ 11:37 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Only one of those kittens found in a bag earlier this week at a Kanawha County grocery store has survived.

A little girl, named Kate, is at a veterinarians office all weekend so she can have around the clock care.

Her brother and sister both died as a result of the infections they had earlier Friday.

The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, who is helping to make sure Kate can pull through, is asking the public do something to honor the kittens who didn't make it.

According to a post on it's Facebook Page, they are asking that people volunteer to be fosters of other kittens at the Kanwaha-Charleston Humane Association.
