Sad news about Stripy….

stripy-cat

I found him dead this morning on Sylvan R0ad.  I brought him home and buried him in the front yard.  Stripy joins a lot of other beloved cats and dogs.

I have known Stripy for 2 years and only in the last 6 months did he allow me to pat him.

I have his ‘dance’ partner here, Grayson (Gracie)  They would come out and do this little dance for me before I fed them.  Gracie might be a relative, but she is very small.  Stripy was big, a beautiful grey with white swirls on his coat, a full white breast and beautiful green eyes.

Stripy will be missed by me.  He was part of the reason I got up and fed them before 9am. There are others from his ‘tribe’ and I will continue to feed them.  But Stripy can’t be replaced.

Goodbye, Stripy.  You were a wonderful friend.

    Oh Jane, I am so sorry. I know he was extra special to you. How do you think he died? Was he hit by a car? How very sad, just when you were making progress with getting closer to him. Animals have such a hard time surviving in this world.

    Hi Sherry….you of all people would understand. Hit by a car…probably Thurs. nite considering his state. He was very special to me…quite a personality. I am just numb, Sherry. I got 8 here to attend to, but they aren’t Stripy. He was so beautiful,, and all those chicken gizzards went to good use. Thank you, Sherry. Yes Animals have a hard time surviving in this damn world.

    Thank you, Xenia. At least I know my poor baby was never hungry. He got raw chicken gizzards every time he was fed. He was big and beautiful. I am numb. At least I know now where Stripy is.

    Thank you, Sanaa. Stripy was a very special cat. Wish I could have got him home when he was living. He’s here, now though.

    THank you. Stripy was. He is so missed by me and I think when people know about him…others. We just dismiss the existence of stray cats like they are garbage. Stripy had more heart than most people. He had strength and integrity.
