Goodbye again, Sweet Sassy

I just heard from the people I gave my kitten to that she was killed by a car in front of their house this evening. I'm trying not to feel guilty for deliberately finding her an outside home where this danger was real.  She wasn't happy living inside, but at least she was safe.  She was a special cat. They felt the same way and are going to miss her.  It's not their fault -- they gave her a good home and she was happy to be outside chasing mice and exploring her world.  I only wish she'd had more years, and that she hadn't needed to explore across the road, but she was a cat doing what cats do. It's nobody's fault. But that doesn't make it hurt any less.

Goodbye, sweet Sassy. You will be missed.

  1. ...what a shame. I cried silently for weeks after Sable was killed by a car. She was a boat and island dog and did not understand the dangers.
