hmm well i don't think there is anything wrong with it. bearing in mind the age of viewers, i think it's wrong to gloss over death and pretend it doesn't happen

oh no,they could have tactfully just said, it had gone to sleep or something, i guess.

Oh is that what happened??
We caught their 'tribute' to it and wondered how they had managed to lose another animal - the poor little thing was only a year old!!

I think bp should be banned from having pets!!!

dear kiddies the cat went to sleep it was a very long sleep it was such a long sleep that the cat went green

the older ones would understand but younger kids watch blue peter too and would be upset, you cant get away from death but i suppose saying it was run over was a bit detailed.

"mummy when will the cat wake up?"

"never.. the bloody thing is DEAD"

Have to say I agree with hyphen - given the age group it's aimed at, I think it's better to tell it as it is rather than gloss over it.

lol cod

spacecadet Fri 19-Aug-05 18:41:13

what literally cod?
lol mud, you know what i mean, they could have just said, it died.

do you think they'll make it into something - a handbag maybe?
sorry... totally insensitive

stuffing its a great idea, mind you given the circumstancers of its death, it would probably take some needlework.
