Hi to all
Unfortunately I found this forum and am posting in it, in order to relieve some of the immense pain and grief I feel. Last Monday, May 9th, My Cat of 8.5 years was killed by car in front of our house. I'm 38 years old, don't have kids and Dior was truly the love of my life. I have two other cats, Shanti and Lola, and also two dogs .Dylan and Kaya. But Dior was the by far the leader of the whole clan, he was one of kind. The kicker is, he was always and has been strickly an indoor cat. We just moved homes last week in order to get a bigger yard for our dogs, and perhaps a new puppy down the line. And Dior managed to escape. When I got home, I brought my wife a chicken ceasar salad, and sure enough Lola and Shanti were right at her feet when they smelt the chicken. Well I instantly noticed Dior wasn't there, and even if he was sleeping in some remote corner of the house, He would have instantly abandoned his slumbers and joined us. MY wife was also sleeping at the time and I saw a small crack in the glass doors which lead to the back yard, Small, but big enough for a cunning cat to wiggle thru nonetheless. I instantly grabbed my Mag Light and went outside calling his name. We have a 100 meter long driveway filled with plants and flowers on both sides of the road, which leads to the gate and the street. I looked around the backyard for several minutes just praying I would see his little face pop from the bushes ( I'm crying as I type this.) But he didnt show, thats when I walked the driveway and out to the street. I continued to call his name frantically but then my worse fears were realized as I saw a shadow about 30 meters down the road. It was him, he was dead on the spot. The life squeezed out of his tiny frame. I knew he was dead, his once graceful and beautiful body was lifeless.
Since this is my 2nd post ever, I will continue the story after I get approved to post, because its a quite long story , and I really feel the need to get it out, Just typing the above statement has already helped me a lot. Thanks.
