    As most of you know my babies are my pets. Yesterday afternoon Crash my cat got out. I searched for her for two hours last night. Than gave up and went to bed. Figured she would be in, in the morning. She never came. I was really getting nervous and started to go to work. When I got to the end of my road there she was. SHe had been hit by a car. Some nice person had moved her out of the road. We buried her in my mom's back yard. She was the second pet I bought all on my own, first cat. I adopted her in October 1998 from a shelter in WA state.

    Sorry, Jaime. Know that you gave her a second life when you adopted her from a shelter. She will be your kitty angel.

    Wow, she has beautiful long hair for a calico! I have a short-haired one.

    How is the rest of the pets faring?

    How are you doing?

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm doing so so. Steve is doing horrible. He thinks it's his fault.
    Mya keeps pacing and looking out windows. I didn't think to show her yesterday morning that crash had passed.

    She was actually a long haired tabby cat (like a tiger).

    I knew it was a tabby..duh...I think of the fur as calico though. My cat has the same M on the forehead and I was told a long time ago that only one breed has that.

    yeah, Gabby probably needed to see the body. Poor thing.

    My dad ran over my first dog. I was too busy grieving to ever blame him. I was only 7. I saw the whole thing. All I remember is my dad was upset enough to throw a whole container of worms into the lake.

    Oh, Jaime. I am so sorry! I missed this thread and didn't realize what had happened until I saw your post about the new dog in your life. I know how much Crash meant to you. She was beautiful!

    Thanks Christy and Lily.

    Christy I am not getting that border collie. We just don't have the room. Or are you talking about Quinn. She arrived in August. I'll post some pictures on another thread.

    I had misread the other post and thought you were getting him (until I re-read it to post a reply).
