Sad day today. One of my furbabies died!

Not such a happy day here today. When I went out this morning to serve breakfast to Tunble, Violet, Thelma and Squeakers, I was greeted by Squeakers lifeless body on the first step of the porch.

He'd seemed to have been feeling sluggish the last two days and I spied, yesterday, what appeared to be a gunshot/bullet wound in his side. He wouldn't let me touch it but he allowed me to pick him up and hug and love on him. He never failed to show up for mealtimes and "loving" time. He hadn't been dead very long when I found him, so I swaddled him in our traditional "garb" and promptly buried my little boy. He was a sweet little angel and a real gentleman to the other kitties. I'm gonna miss my little Squeakers. Buck and I said a prayer over his fresh grave. I'm so sorry our little Squeakers is gone.

Oh Katie - I'm so sorry. Poor Squeakers - he's not hurting anymore and he's probably sitting on Buck's lap right now!

Awwwww, I'm sorry about Squeakers. I had a cat die on my porch like that--unexpected, obviously injured, and very sudden. It's hard.

I'm going to miss him because he was such an affectionate kitty, but he and Buck did have a special relationship. Still....I'm gonna miss my little "Squeaks." He couldn't "meow" and that's how he got his name. All he could do was "squeak." He was a real sweetheart.

This is sure sad! Please accept my sympathy. Sure sounds like you treated him the best way you could. Not to make a meow sounds sad also. Somebody shot him? What a shock! How many do you have? going to get another one? I have replacements for my dogs but they sure don't replace the ones that are gone. All have unique personalities. Only relief one gets is the memories you had with him. You can be sure you are in my thoughts today. So sorry.
