Yesterday was a sad Feral Friday. Our outside friend, grey striped kitty, got hit by a car and ended up on his side in our driveway yesterday afternoon. He was friendly, probably someone's pet who was an outside-only cat, or someone's former pet turned out on his own. He never let us pet him, or come very close, but he once jumped on our grandpa's car and looked in at him when he came to visit! So he had to have some positive experience with humans at some point in his life. He was probably somewhere between 2 and 5 years old. He visited us at least every other day, eating from the food on our back deck.
Rest in peace, grey striped kitty! We'll miss you!
Mommy saw his body in the driveway when Grandpa drove her home after work last night. Daddy buried him with Skylar & Spooky, while Grandpa held the flashlight. We watched with Mommy from inside the house, through the back window.
