I went outside as usual at 4am today to feed my birds and Scrapper,our guard cat.I fed the birds,but I didnt see Scrapper.I went out front hoping he didnt get hit by a car. I found his body on the sewer manhole out front of our house.His head was crushed and his neck broken. I picked him up and buried him in the backyard under his tree. I miss him soo much that it hurts. I never called him animal,or beast,or creature,but I treated him as an equal to me.I never have treated any animal I ever had as such. I will never ever forget you Pappy. Your pawprints will always be upon my heart.
