kitty


Last night our cat Kitty was killed by four dogs. At about 2AM we heard scuffling and barking outside our kitchen door. By the time we got there they had dragged her into the street. Just four random dogs loose in our neighborhood.

Kitty was the best. She was there every time I went outside. She never left the porch, she was always there. She followed me around whenever I worked in my garden. She would literally walk me across the street like a seeing-eye-cat over to my friend's house and she'd wait there for me and walk me back.


I don't mean to bring down the tone of your day, I just miss Kitty. She was the best.

Man, that pisses me off, to hear what happened! I'm so sad and mad for you, Cory. Thanks for sharing about how great your kitty was. How terrible that those people let there dogs run free to destroy others' pets. I hope you can get some recourse or something, to maybe at least keep it from happening to someone else's cat. Again, I'm really sorry.

Just Awful. I lost my kitty of 6 years to what sounded like a coyote grab and run. I heard her shriek once through the window and that was all - vanished without a trace. I am less angry though, at my kitty being a part of the food chain than yours being sport for loose dogs. Bad dogs, bad owners.

Sorry for your loss. I wasn't able to really process my missing kitty until I posted some photos and words in her memory. She was a very good kitty.

you should realy call the police or animal control on that one Cory, those dogs need caught, next time it could be some ones child.
It happend up here in Alaska a while back, savage dogs running loose is no joke. Where I grew up, in Montana, those dogs would be running around for about 1 day befor someone would shoot them.

So sorry to hear about your loss, I have had an out side cat meet a trajic end as well, and I understand.
