We lost our beloved Willow yesterday. I never wanted an indoor/outdoor cat because of the risks but adopting a ranch cat, it was in her blood. She loved exploring and catching birds. She loved running outside. Yesterday, she got hit by a car. I don’t know why it had to happen yesterday, basically in the worst week of my entire life, but it did. And my beautiful, gray, perfect cat is now gone.
She loved her scratching pads. She got so excited when I brought a new one out jumping up to get it before the plastic was even off.
And she loved to snuggle with me. In the morning and evening after she had played outside she was mine. She would nudge my phone if I was on it for attention or bite my hand so she could be scratched. But never on the belly, that was off limits.
She loved looking out the window and watching what was going on. She had different spots throughout the house that were her perches. Willow, you are going to be greatly missed. I don’t think you were in pain as I think it happened in an instant and you were doing what you loved to do.
