Some of you may have known that I adopted two kittens in March of this year.
Tragically, our beautiful boy, Kaiser, was hit by a car on Saturday night. He was the absolute light and joy of my life and I am utterly and profoundly devastated. The shock of losing a pet so suddenly without being able to do anything has left me feeling helpless and in tatters.
The only comfort I can take from it is that it was instantaneous. He obviously took a big bang to the head, but otherwise his perfect little body was left intact. I just wished his little eyes would close, but they won’t 🙁 I hope he’s not scared, wherever he has gone to, now. We buried him in our garden on the other side of the heat pump unit (he looooved sitting right by the heat pump) and planted some daffodils on top.
Thank the Lord we still have Sasha. She’s a lot different to my Kaiser, though. Timid and shy, and only affectionate on her terms. I think she’s taking it okay, though. She’s a bit of a loner to be honest and does fine in her own company. It’s going to be very hard to adjust to life without Kaiser’s chatty, happy little self bouncing around anymore.
In the short space of not even two full days yet, I have found it therapeutic to talk to people who understand how it feels (namely, cat lovers). There are people out there who don’t understand, and I feel like it’s a shame for them not to know how much love and joy you can get from having a cat (or dog) in your life. Kaiser won’t be the last cat we have, I’m sure, but no one could ever replace him. He was special. He talked to me, waited for me to get home from work and greeted me every day. He snuggled with me at every opportunity and loved to just flop down on the floor in front of me for a tummy tickle. He loved pet milk and cheese and would go crazy for it! He also had the loudest purr and was purring ALL the time. I will really miss that about him. He was so happy and chilled out all the time; it was plain to see he loved life, and I like to think he loved me, too. Just as much as I love him.
Goodbye, my beautiful little black prince. I will meet you at the Rainbow Bridge, one day.

I’m so, so sorry to hear this. I am a huge cat lover and I don’t consider them pets I consider them companions. You’re exactly right when you wrote how much joy they bring to your life. I had to put down my cat last year who had been with me more than half my life and it was devastating. I still think I see her sometimes and I still miss her. I’m glad your poor kitty didn’t suffer.

ugh, my heart breaks for you. that is so terribly sad. im not a cat owner but i have lost dogs who were my absolute everything, just as you mentioned Kaiser was to you. your heart will never be the same because Kaiser has taken a little piece but know that you will eventually start to feel better and every day it will hurt less. i am also glad your little buddy didnt suffer. hugs<3

I’m so so sorry for your loss. This is one of my greatest fears with our cats and dogs…that they would get out of the house and be hit by a car. I can only imagine how hard this must be for you right now. Try to take comfort in knowing that his (too brief) life was full of love.

I’m so sorry for your loss bee xx I had a beautiful little tortie cat who died suddenly a couple of years ago. It is totally devastating and heart breaking. She was a little bundle of fun much like your boy, so playful and affectionate. I couldn’t sit down for a minute without her jumping on my lap! Huge hugs and lots of love to you xxx
