R.I.P Zoe

For 14 years you watched Dave and I. You were our "first". Before the kids, before we had a home, before we created our life together. You have been here with us, watching, chasing those pesky mice and running free. Its time for you to live in the stars now ......RIP our beautiful Zoe....RIP xx



Zoe was killed on our road. She was getting older and maybe not as fast as she used to be. I'm ok with it really, I understand the life and death cycle but what I can't understand is.............. Why, when people hit pets, do they just leave them in the middle of the road to be further destroyed? Why can't they just stop and place them off to the side? Thank god I found her on my own. That is not a memory I would wish on my children.

What a crap year you are having. Seems like you could all use some time away.

Oh Leonie, that's just terrible! I can't believe people just leave pets where they've harmed them! I'm glad you found her on your own too. Our first 'daughter' was a cat too and she has passed into the stars as well. I still think of her all the time. Happy memories. Kx

That is shit! Someone hit Zac a few months ago and I heard the bang- ran hysterically down the driveway heart pounding out of my chest - he was fine but they didn't even stop. I went marching up to next door ss their is only one house past ours so i knew where the driver was and blasted them. Went off my head. Then came home and had to lay down.
I am glad you found Zoe too, and yes, alone.

I think you are very brave. I know I will be a mess when I loose either of my boys - a nine year old dog and cat - I was heart broken when my pet turtle died in high school. Poor Zoe. All the best Leonie. x

Aww RIP Zoe. That's so sad...
My nephew and I found a little kitten lastnight that met the same fate. Thankfully someone had pulled over and placed it on the naturestrip. Poor little thing.

Oh so sorry to read about Zoe, and you having to find her.
We lost our cat (Molly) after 14 years just over a year ago - there are still moments I step on a soft toy left underfoot and recoil in horror thinking I have stepped on out dear puss only to remember she's gone.

Tania said...

That is a hell of a kick to the guts. So sorry to hear your sad news L. x

Just today I was telling my husband how awesome my cat was (I had him from 9 til I was 21) and how I still mourned his death.

I'm so sorry that your beautiful Zoe has died. She looked like a beautiful kitters. I hope you treasure all those memories from life with her. She sounds like my kind of kitters.
