I had a call from the vet about an hour ago. My lovely boy cat James was hit by a car.

I can't stop crying. I can't believe he won't come home again. I keep listening out for the cat flap. It hurts so much.

Oh no I'm so sorry. Saw on my FB feed earlier a report of a cat hit by a car. It brought it back how we lost a boy cat this way. Heartbreaking.
I'm so sorry. RIP James.

I'm so sorry, all I can offer is a virtual hug. Been through similar very recently. RIP James.

This is the first pet I've had. I didn't realise how much I'd love him. He was so young, not even 3. He slept on my bed.

So sorry OP, we lost one of my mums boys (who I loved like my own) this way a couple of weeks ago, it's heartbreaking flowers

Oh lord what a way to lose him too. I'm so sorry.

It hurts like hell to lose them however it happens.

So sorry. We lost our 2 year old cat the same way in November. DS2, whose cat he "officially" was, was devastated. But you have to remember that a happy outdoor cat (and particularly a boy) will wander; it's impossible to keep them completely safe.Remember the lovely time James had with you.

Wolfiefan Sun 20-Mar-16 21:09:44

He had a lovely home and was clearly much loved. He was lucky. Remember that.
It's hard though. Be kind to yourself.

Oh tippy I am so very sorry. Our lovely cats have a way of taking over our lives to the extent that we suddenly realise that nothing would be the same without them.

I will never forget my little kitten when I was young. A woman from a few doors down knocked at our door one evening. I opened the door and she immediately asked for my mum or dad. It turned out that she found my dear kitten in the road after he was knocked over by a car. I was devastated but she took the time to wrap him up in a blanket, and with my parents permission, let me see him. I will never forget him.

thanksmy Siamese is cuddling up to me right now and I am taking a moment to think of your dear cat

Oh so sorry. Am sure he had a happy life with you and was well loved. RIP James flowers

So very sorry flowers

I'm very sorry, tippy.

timtam23 Sun 20-Mar-16 23:52:20

So sorry tippy, that's very sad news. My boycat is nearly 3 as well and it is such a young age. I'm sure he had a wonderful life with you though. RIP James flowers

Oh my, I am so sorry. Like a lot of other posters it happened to my lovely boy too.
It is dreadful but having him cremated and bringing him back home helped a lot. Benjy is still with us. Be kind to yourself, take care and take a big hug from us all.x

tippytap Mon 21-Mar-16 07:20:52

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

For those who've lost their pets, did you adopt another? Nothing, nothing can replace James, but the house feels so empty.

Fozzleyplum Mon 21-Mar-16 07:31:58

We did. We now have 2 beautiful girl kittens from a rescue charity. This time, we chose girls who had been reared with a foster family, rather than male feral kittens from a rescue that did not have the facilities to handle. I'm hoping that these 2 will wander less.

Yes. I've always had another boy come live with me - and usually fairly quickly. That's not any sort of recommendation, it's just the way I am - the hole in my life is too big to live with and there are so many cats out there just aching for a home to lay themselves of a night.

It's not something I think about much, it's just a given in this household.
