RIP week...

Last night on my way back home from watching "The Lorax" with Yanique - which was pretty good by the way- I drove by a dead black cat on the road, very close to our house.

As soon as I saw the black bulk on the road, my heart skipped fearing that it was an animal, then when I saw it was a black cat, my heart sunk thinking it could be our own Shadow.


Shadow
But Thank Goodness it wasn't.

Unfortunately, it was another black kitty that have been around our house before... He was dead.

And that's the thing about outdoor cats, there are much more vulnerable to the dangers of the roads, people and other predators. In the case of our 6 cats, I think that perhaps they don't go very far anymore as we find then hanging out around the house most of the time... where they need there's food waiting for them!

Anyway, we can't really prevent those things to happen and although I fear for their safety I also know that if God allowed us to rescue and care for them I know he is also keeping and eye on them at all times.

RIP little black kitty.

Have a great weekend!

How sad. When we adopted our kitties from ASPCA, we had to promise to keep them as indoor cats due to the dangers. I don't think I could have an outdoor cat, since I'd be beside myself with worry all the time.

RIP Black Kitty! When I got Mittens, I knew for sure I wanted him to be an indoor cat. I live on the corner of a pretty busy street, and had he been an outdoor kitty, I'm pretty sure he'd be dead by now. I can't imagine having an outdoor cat. I think I'd be worried about it all the time!!

I'm sorry about the black kitty and I'm glad he wasn't shadow, but it's still sad for someone...debbie

Having to constantly worry about your cats safety would drive you insane. I think to a point you need to just trust that things happen.

Yes Tom I agree, I am not constatly worried about the cats safety but its always in the back of my mind...

Since are cats are feral and we have two indoor dogs, unfortunately we dont have the option of keeping them inside.

I fed that cat and petted him. I am very sad. I wanted to start feeding him always.
