What a rotten night we had.
I went for a bike ride, returning to find out a beautiful gray cat in our neighborhood got hit by a car and killed. The cops were in our street and took him away in a bag. All the neighbors were so upset, as were we.
This cat came in our yard often, just sat around minding his own business. He never went after the birds. He was just a good cat, a beautiful little soul, now gone.
I was sick to my stomach and still am.
These little creatures just steal our hearts. Never hurt anyone. All they want is food and love.
One of the neighbors named the cat “Buttons.”
Rest in peace Buttons. We loved you!
