I know there is a similar post already but I just need to vent. My just one year old lovely cat went out on Wednesday and never came home. Have done leafleting neighbours and posting on local Facebook groups and was contacted last night to say a dead cat had been found in a garden on a neighbouring Street. Have seen a photo and am convinced it's her. DH is going to go and get her when I take boys to their Taekwondo class in a bit. Nowhere in our tiny garden to bury her so he will take her to our vets. I was without a cat for many years and dh finally capitulated and suggested we get her last year. We all loved her and the house seems very quiet without her. Seems so bloody unfair and I can't stop crying.
I'm so sorry, it's heartbreaking when that happens. We lost our 7 year old boy on the road last year and I cried for weeks. Then our new wee one that we rescued was hit by a car (she was already an outdoor cat so I couldn't keep her in) and it broke me. Sad as I am, I can't face having another, because I can't risk it. I'm very sorry about your cat, here's my first ever (very un-MNetty) virtual hug
I'm so sorry for your loss** . We lost our old ginger 7 years ago now and I still miss him. We had him cremated and put the ashes in a large pot in which we planted a lovely little rose in a ginger colour. It flowers so beautifully and reminds me of him.
