    Wow, yesterday was shitty. As some of you know I have a grooming shop here on the farm. I also had Bear, a rescue kitty that was pretty old ( we figure 15ish). His time was near but oh God the way-ugh. He's been limping and getting a little slower, but still got around pretty good, although slowly. We think his hearing was going. But he knew the kitty treats were in the grooming shop, and at night everyone got- that's how I checked everyone, gave out meds, frontline whatever. Well yesterday morning he had come over when I went in, and I said " later Bear", I gotta get ready for my 1st client. And usually he would just go off to the side of the building and lay down knowing I would throw a treat out as soon as I could. Well one of my nicest clients came in, dropped off her dog and we talked a few minutes. I have a large window in front and I saw her pull out then back up, and honk, I looked out there was poor Bear, I threw max in a cage and ran out but he was gone. She had ran him over. OMG did she feel terrible, and seeing me standing there holding you crying made it worse. You were a good guy, you deserved better. But I believe it was quick. So Godspeed to the bridge guy, I know you are whole agian and feel young with no pain ever agian. I will miss you "not mewing" ( he would open his mouth but nothing came out). I know your kitty buddy Jr misses you alot too. Love you buddy

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard, but now he is no longer suffering. I know that is easy to say but hard to accept.

    :hug: I am so sorry.
