hit-and-run casualty

Postby Zylah » 10 Aug 2010, 18:21

Yesterday when I was leaving for my nursing final, I was delayed by the discovery of our Maine coon cat, Zoomkitty, dead in the middle of the road. She had gotten out this morning when my mother-in-law to be went out to water the plants; people go 50 on this road habitually despite the 30 speed limit.

Her body is buried near a walnut tree in back of the house. :-(

I'm saddened to hear that your cat died in an accident. Such a sudden loss must be very hard.

Oh Zylah on top of everything else you are having to deal with, your poor cat. Lots of hugs and sympathy to you.

Oh, dear, sissah... another of the many things we need to catch up on... I'm so sorry to hear about ZoomKitty. She was a pretty cat. Hugs all around.
The cat, a creature which combines a high degree of sensuality with a deeply psychic and spiritual nature, teaches us that the physical and spiritual worlds are not separate, but one.

Thanks very much for all your thoughts and condolences, everyone :hug: . Much appreciated! We miss her very much, but such is the way of this realm.

And yes, O Hester, you MUST get yourself over here pronto. *stomps foot*

[Incidentally, for those who kindly expressed an interest in my final, I did get a 90% both on the final and in the class overall; so thanks for all the good wishes and energy.]

Thank you; I think what may be hardest is when I think I see her in one of her old hangouts out of the corner of my eye, and then I go to pet her, and she's not there. :gloomy:
