This has been a sad weekend. Our sweet kitty, Tyg, is no longer with us. He did not show up yesterday morning as usual and then yesterday afternoon our neighbor found him on her front lawn. He had been hit by a car Friday night or early Saturday morning.
I know that is a risk of having an outdoor cat, but I will say in all my years of having outdoor cats (decades), we have never had one hit by a car.
We rescued him in May of 2013 when he was 5 months old. 8 years was not long enough with him.
RIP sweet boy. We miss you.
