Main Question or Discussion Point

I just found him. He was my antigravity cat, he was my rabbit. He had huge rabbit feet and a round face with rabbit ears and was the most loving thing.

Every night when I'd come home he run up to me and flop onto his back and wait to get his stomach rubbed.

The Evo child is coming over later to be with me when I bury him. I can't see to type through the tears right now.

This is him as a baby, the only picture I have.

He is in Kitty heaven now, chasing birds, mice, and an occasional deer to satisfy his lion-sized ego. :wink:

He looks like he was a nice friend. :approve:

I'm sorry Evo! :frown:

That's horrible!

I remember when my dog died when I was young. I was watching TV, and I swear, every commerical and show had a dog in it. It was not fun. It made me sad. It really is amazing how much those little guys can mean to you, you know? Well anyways Evo, I'm sorry for your loss. Don't get too many tears on your keyboard :smile:

That's awful.

p.s. Did he die naturally, or was he killed? (Sorry to ask.)

I'm so sorry to hear that, honey. Been there, and wouldn't wish it upon anyone. I might suggest that you approach death as I do: I never mourn the loss of someone--I celebrate having had him/her in my life. Everyone that I meet has an influence upon who I am. Cats more so than a lot of people...

I'm very sorry too. We get so use to our animal friends company, I know you will miss him very much.
My last house had 20 years of pets burried in the back yard. I ended up makeing a map for the new owners..of where they shouldn't dig.

Bad day all the way around. If you suspect poisoning, you might want to check around for some neighbor's cooling system leaking anti-freeze, or blowing puddles in the gutters --- "once" is once too many.

Having others, though, does not diminish the lack of the deceased. As a for instance: I have 2 brothers and a sister left, but I still miss my other brother.

I'm really sorry for you. It's the great tragedy of having pets...having to let go. But still, that doesn't compare to the joy they give. Hugs!

Poisened you say? By accident, or deliberately (it happens, there a sick people out there, a friend of mine lost a dog that way...)?

This time of year, it's really possible for it to have been accidental. People have all sorts of lawn care stuff and insecticides out in the yards, slug killer in the gardens, and are busy working on cars and boats, leaving fluids lying around, and there's also all the pool chemicals. But, yes, it's also possible it was deliberate. It's a dangerous world out there for kitties.

I wasn't sure what Zz meant in his PF photo contest post, since I had missed this thread.

I'm sorry to hear that, Evo. :(
