Dig R.I.P. Maggie 1998-2008

I'm sad to say but I found my cat of 10 years dead today when I was out looking for her......... She was under a car in the driveway next to us I guess she fell asleep under there and........ got killed. I loved this cat very much and had her ever since I was really young. She was a stray cat and I wanted to keep her but my mom and dad said no but finally they agreed to let me have her. She was a pretty small cat for her age and stayed small but let me tell you she made up for it she was the terror to birds and other small animals in the neighborhood kinda like a mini Hanibal Lector I thought she could withstand anything but I never thought I would see her dead.........




I buried her with this




I really don't know why I just thought it was approiate.




R.I.P. Maggie

I will miss you

Thanks guys. Can someone please answer this for me? When I picked her up there was no blood at all she was just limp why would that be? If she got crushed wouldnt there be blood everywhere? I'm just hoping nobody did anything to her...

Im no cat expert or anyhting but i would think she died of old age. I think her body would appear to be crushed if whe was run over. Maybe it was teh gas form the engine. But i would think it was old age...But ive never even owned a pet so i dont have any prior knowledge or facts to fall back on.
edit: for some reason the thumbs down icon showed up...?? i deleted it. it was a mistake

My dad says there was blood from her mouth so I guess she did get crushed I did not see it at the time because I was so upset.

Well, still i think after a pet does die samething with humans blood can seep form their heads..blood in the body has to go somewhere but again i have no knowledge prior or up too this point to fall back on...Again Im really sorry

That's aweful man. I'd be devastated if anything happened to my cat, Calvin. He's living with my mom right now but I love that cat so much, he really means a whole lot to me. It ws pretty funny when I was little I prayed for a cat that was big, had desighns, and that his name was Calvin, several years later I got just that.

I'm really sorry to hear that. I lost my dog last year at the age of 19. It's tough to lose a pet. She was better then most people I know. Again, I'm sorry for your loss.

*hugs* I've been reading your having a hard time in general, so thinking some good thoughts and prayers for you.

If she was old, I wonder if maybe she went off by herself to pass. Sometimes they do that. We lost 2 young dogs last year, both accidents, and I still miss them both.

That's horrible! I know how it is to find your catdead. My cat was also hit by a car and died some years ago. She was only one year old, the poor thing. And it was her own fault..

My condolences!

In time you should find a new kitten and devote your attention to that. It doesn't make Maggie any less special. It makes a different cat just as lucky as she was to have you. My last cat, Earl, died on the roads a few years back, but I have another rascal now who I care for just as much.

My condolences to you.

I know how hard losing a pet can be. I've lost numerous pets over the years, including my beloved pet goldfish that passed away a few years ago.

I hope you feel better, and again my condolences go out to you.
