Well, my son and I came home Friday to a horrible discovery. We had stayed at my parents in town for a few days, coming out to the house after work to feed the cats and take care of my dog, and we had not seen our cat Mister (our siamese tom cat) in a few days. But, since he's a tom who has recently figured out what it is that tom cats love to do, we figured he was off making nice with the neighborhood females. I fed him in his normal spot every afternoon, and the next day, the food was gone. Well, when we returned home Friday, my son and I were in the backyard with the chicks, and that's when my son saw the pile of white fur in the neighbors backyard. It seems he got into a fight with something, and lost. They neighbors don't have a dog, but we have foxes and coyotes in the area, but he's never had a problem before, and he's been an outside cat for months. From the looks of things, he put up a good fight.. not all the fur we found was his, but I just hate that we lost him. My son (14) was super mature about it.. he even insisted on being the one to bury Mister. I was very proud of him for the love and care and maturity he showed during a terrible task. Thanks for letting me share, I just needed to tell other animal lovers about this experience, casue I knew you all would understand.
