One of my cats Small (aka Mindy) was reversed over by the next-door neighbour today, it was pretty horrible, the neighbour ran to get me and she was twitching in a pool of blood with her eyeball hanging out.
She was DD's cat (luckily DD was out when it happened).
I just feel very sad, she was such a lovely and sweet natured little cat, always happy to have a snuggle on the sofa.
We just have her big fat git of a brother now (why do only the good die young?)
DD wants to bury her with the Christmas stocking we bought her, which is making me feel very weepy.
That's a nice idea. How old is your DD she sounds very mature. Almost the exact same thing happened to my dads cat and I, at 25, was in floods of tears for about 2 days when he told me. Your poor neighbour also. Hope you're all ok x
DD is seven, she has SN so I was expecting her to take it extremely badly, but though very upset, she's better than I expected.
The neighbour was distraught, she was all dressed up for a Christmas lunch, I gave her a big hug and told her it absolutely WASN'T her fault and to go and have a stiff drink.
We ran a dog over once that leapt out of a van window travelling in the opposite direction and straight under out front wheels, I was traumatised for weeks afterwards so I understood completely how she felt. Have popped a card over to say for her not to worry and that we in NO way blame her, accidents happen (especially with cats and cars).
