Not enough tears

We had a horrible accident today. No flip comments, no stupid plays on words. We had a horrible, horrible accident and I am utterly heartbroken.

Boone died today.

I loved that kitten more than I should have considering the short time we had together and I don't have enough tears or time in the day to cry for him the way I really want to. We didn't see what happened, but we can guess. And we think the end was quick and unexpected and that he didn't suffer. The best we can tell, his neck was broken. There was no blood or gore. And there was no Boone left in Boone when I found him.

I am so very, very sorry little buddy. You were an awesomely weird and wonderful cat. I am just so sorry. We will miss you.

Oh no. that is horrible. We had a horrible time 2 weeks ago losing one of our ducks. I think my kids would want to sell the farm if we lost one our cats.

Thank you all for your sympathy.

Yeah-- I can just about handle the poultry deaths now, but house pets...well... I'm just not that tough.
