We have no pets ourselves but (probably because we don't) the next door neighbour's two cats Sam and George would regularly come to visit- I spent many a happy Saturday night watching Match of the Day with the older one Sam curled up on the rug, the younger one was more wary, but could be tempted to come in and chase a table tennis ball about or similar (I had to stop feeding him cooked ham, as he loved it so much he'd come jumping in through the window). They were lovely little creatures and became a part of our lives.. then early one morning it was us who found George run over in the street outside and had to break the news... the neighbour was heartbroken, so was her grown-up son, I can still hear the tears now. A few months later the older cat died- natural causes but still really hard to take. We found it hard too but only of course a fraction of what its home family did.
So- like others- no point really to this other than to say- really sympathise, and appreciate how these little creatures become part of our lives.
