My lovely Pixie got killed on the road on 28th December, I'm so devastated. I haven't found out what happened to his body as I only found out what had happened as we leafleted the area and had a call to say he'd been run over and his body had gone. I miss him so much he was such a character and my best friend. I nursed him through a FIV crisis when he was 2 and he would have been 6 next month. He was so well and a happy little cat. I'm finding it hard to sleep at night as I cry so much. It's then that I feel his loss the most . He would always follow me up to bed. I still wait for him to come running along the fence and come crashing through the cat flap miaowing loudly to let me know he's home.
I love you Pix

Oh 'Rosiepix', I DO know how you feel.

When little Poppy tottered into our lives, she was painfully thin and sick with enteritis. With help from the vet, we saved her and she grew into a very friendly, loving little cat. All the others took to her, she was such a sweetie. She would peep around the door to see who was in the room, then stand in the doorway and screw her face up to meow. All that came out was a tiny 'eeww'. When she did that she would also flick her tail over her back. One day she vanished, without a trace. We never found out what happened to her.

I have her picture as a screen saver. Her paw is raised as if she is waving. I always say goodnight to her when I switch off the 'pooter. Even now, 3 years later, I still occasionally get that awful sick feeling of sadness, guilt and grief.

My only consolation is knowing that we did save her life. She enjoyed a happy, if brief time with us and someday I hope to see her again. God Bless Poppy. x

RIP little Pixie, your mummy misses you. ((Hugs)) to you Rosiepix. x

I'm so very sorry to hear that you've lost lovely Pixie. I lost my little Peaches to the road last summer, and though it doesn't hurt like it did, I still miss her terribly. Please try to take some comfort in the fact that you gave him a lovely life and a chance that so many FIV+ cats just don't get. You need to grieve right now, but the pain will pass and you'll be able to remember the good times. I planted a shrub in Peaches' memory, and I look at it and smile every day. ((((hugs))))

Rest in peace little Pixie. xx

Lots of love to you rosiepix at this horribly difficult time, I understand the loss and pain your feeling and the flow of never ending tears xx we lost our beautiful penny cat towards the end if last year and I am still hit with waves of grief and guilt. I only just brought myself to cancle her insurance policy this week and cried to the kind lady on the phone.

I would still give anything to see her come bounding down the garden towards me and meow in the morning for her fuss and breakfast. I used to love the sound of her coming crashing through the cat flap too.

I hope you can find some comfort in the fact that you gave your beautiful pixie a wonderful loving home And the independence to live their cattie life to the full xxx

Big hugs to you and much love sent to pixie now playing happily in the sunshine at rainbow bridge until you meet again xxxx

I know your pain:( I have no idea where my cats body is. All I know was the man who found him dead, put him in a bin bag and in the bin and by the time we found this out it was too late and the bin men had been. The whole thing makes me so so upset:(

Oh Joanne I so sorry for you x I am having problems dealing with it all, I'm still hoping he comes home. Nothing final as there's no proof it was him. I'm so angry and upset this has happened he was such a special little cat as I'm sure yours was to you. It's been a month now and I don't feel like I've moved on at all. Today I want to blame someone , I worry in case he's out there somewhere in the cold and in pain. I cry at the drop of a hat, it's so painful, no one should have to deal with the awful uncertainty.
Hugs Rosie

Because of the circumstances of what happened to our babies I think its hard to accept and move on:( and of course you have the added questions of not knowing 100% if was him. I just feel so angry it happened. I mean was the car going to fast? did they even know they hit him? and if so did they just move on and not care? how long was he in the gutter before he was found? why didn't the man who found him knock on a few doors and ask if anyone knew who he belonged to? ah I drive myself insane. Then of course with all the snow around I keep thinking of his body all cold, slowly rotting away=[

Hi Joanne
I don't know how you are coping with the loss of 2 of your kitties in such a short time. It must be horrendous for you. I just keep thinking if only we could turn the clock back, a second or 2 could have made all the difference. Sadly not possible but doesn't stop you wishing.
I hope time heals the awful sadness we feel.
Hugs
Rosie
