My beautiful Droosie was taken in a road accident in 21st June, am utterly heartbroken. She was just such a special cat, loads of personality.
The hardest thing is returning home each lunchtime and pulling into the drive. This was her cue for leaping over the back gate and running to greet me. Every day since Monday I have almost expected to see her and then I remember.

However, there is good in the world. Droosie was hit by a van and a woman in the car behind stopped. She then proceeded to knock on nearby houses until she found me. I know therefore that my beautiful calico girl was killed outright, she didn't suffer. Another very kind lady wrapped Droosie in a bag and brought her round to me so that I didn't have to do that job myself.

I have no idea who these two ladies were, they didn't know me and I don't think they knew each other either but I will never be able to thank them enough for their kindness that day.

I took Droosie's body to the local vet who looked her over she was perfect except for a nose bleed, vet said almost certainly a head injury and instant death. At least I know and have an answer despite being heartbroken. I loved her so much.

She was 7 years old, I am looking for the positives, she died doing what she loved which was hunting, she died instantly and didn't suffer, she was utterly adored by us all at home etc.....but it's hard and it is still very raw.

Hello Amanda
Welcome to CC. I am sorry it is in such sad circumstances. Poor you, what a shock.
You are right, she went quickly, doing what she loved. That's small comfort at the moment, but hopefully it is some comfort.
Thinking of you,
