On May 10 in the evening, my husband found our beloved cat DEAD on the side of road in front of our house on North Lee Street. She had been hit by a vehicle.
You know who you are. She did not stand a chance. You could have stopped and come to our house to let us know what had happened. Maybe we could have gotten her help before it was too late. You could have at the very least apologized!
I just wanted to let you know that she was not just some random stray cat wondering the streets. She did not always like staying in the house. That was why she was outside that night. She thought it was her job to roam the yard and keep us safe from other cats and dogs that may come come through.
She was part of our family. Her name was Tory! She was our princess, our baby girl! She loved chasing crickets, wrestling with our other cats, loving on her buddy Merle who just so happens to be a Golden Retriever and she loved curling up on my lap for a Sunday afternoon nap.
We first got her when she was so tiny that we had to bottle feed her because her mommy had abandoned her. She would sometimes sleep at our feet or even sleep on our feet at night. She was a sweet and loving part of our family that will never be forgotten and could never be replaced!
We are heart broken! She had only been a part of our family for five years. Next time you come down the road, think about how fast you are going and think about our family mourning the loss of our princess, our baby girl, our Tory!
As a Christian, I am supposed to forgive you. That will come in time. Right now, I am hurt and angry and so very sad!!
