Thanks again guys, your kind words mean a lot believe me. I have owned 5 cats over the years and obviously have lost them in time usually after they have had a comfortable life with lots of love and plenty of food  but this time it was worse because she was a special little lady and had bags of personality and she was only 6. I remember the good times and I think we both have already decided to get another.We do have another elderly cat that we rescued years ago.We are even thinking of moving to a quieter road. I dunno, there are terrible tragic events somewhere in the world every day -my little tale is trivial in comparison but , Hitler notwithstanding, animal lovers make the world a better place in my opinion. Thanks again.

i'll just add my condolences, we've always had cats around the house, six at the minute, two of whom have been here about ten years.  they do become a part of the family and are sorely missed when they're gone.  and we've had quite a few knocked down, which is horrible.

That sucks man.  My 3 year old cat (Dweezil) got knocked over last year, but she's OK now.  She fractured her pelvis and was fairly smacked up.  The nearly wifey and me were in a terrible mess.

She's back to jumping on me at 3 in the morning now and chasing voles around the house.

Sounds like your cat was very well looked after and had a comfortable little life before the accident.  At least it's better than a lot of moggies get.
Advice worth what you just paid for it.

I am sorry to hear about your loss Sir, there's no replacement for any pet, each one with their own footprint .  Just last week we lost a beautiful cat, then on sunday the other, nowhere to be found. We are still grieving and shocked.

Thanks gents.Pets bring out the best in people I think and it is gratifying to know that many of you understand and I hope,. Lulusg, that your two turn up. We thanked our  neighbours tonight as they helped me deal with the aftermath which was not pleasant. We are going to be looking at cats needing a home in the next few days and may take on a rescue cat or kitten.

That's a very good and honorable thing to do. Rescued animals are very thankfull creatures. Such a good deed returns itself sevenfold.

I sincerely hope that your two darlings return, somehow safe and well. My thoughts are with you also at this time.

There's nothing worse than not knowing where the hell they are.

Sorry to hear that 38th. I know that feeling too it's horrible. We had a cat knocked down back in the 80's. It came from a farm as a kitten and the mother had given it plenty of hunting lessons so it used to get lots of birds and mice. It used to sit on a garage in between two houses and hook swifts out of mid air and get dragged a few feet from the impact. But in the house it was like butter wouldn't melt. Get another one and you both will feel a lot better!

Best of luck Lulusg-I suppose I can say that I know for sure what happened however unpleasant an you are right, good bunch on this forum. And Johnny, the local birdlife will be happy because Mercedes( that was her name) was an
expert hunter. Mrs 38th and I have been to the rescue centre today and have seen a lovely little female cat.She is on 11 months old and is very timid. My hands are scratched to bits   :) as she was not to keen on sitting on my lap but eventually I had her purring away and relaxed..We have put our names down and have to have a home visit( I have owned cats for 20 odd years so what do I know?). If we get her we will be delighted and then we will build her up and get her confident and maybe later in the year to get another Russian Blue.

My sympathies as well, 38th.  Though some make light of it or think  it's silly, I see more than a few patients every year for grief counseling when pets pass away.  There's little anyone can say to make things better, but in time the good memories will outweigh the bad.  We never really "get over" such losses in our lives, but we do eventually work our way around them and try to continue on.  In January, our beloved Max (a huge Chow/Rottweiler mix) passed away after a sudden onset of seizures.  I tried to save him, even gave him mouth-to-mouth (for which I was roundly ribbed by some of my medical colleagues), but I failed him just when he needed me most.  Anyway, hope things ease up for you in time, 38th, and you've got extra sympathy on this end!

Thats very kind of you thank you.I feel for your loss of Max.We are trying to "get back on the horse" so to speak by getting a little lost soul who needs a home and with luck, will be able to bring "Millie" home in a few days. She is a beautiful little 11 month old cat  with big saucer like eyes that needs a home.She is scared of everything but we will bring her out of her shell.I have to "cat proof" the garden so that she doesn't get near the road. We are both volunteering to become "cat cuddlers" for a cat charity to socialise distressed or abandoned cats.We see that as a good way of honouring the memory of Mercedes. WE both love all animals and hope to be able to get a dog but as we both work full time at the moment, don't think it would be fair. Thanks again for the kind words and I am coming to terms with the loss of my little lady.

my condolences. My cat died on the same day as the tsunami, and that kind of put things into perspective for me. I was still bloody miserable though.

good luck with your new cat 38th, With a bit of luck it will make as good a companion as your old one.
