In Memory......

For those who read my posts on occasion, more than likely have read about "Bill".  Bill (named by the "red headed cupid") showed up at my daughter's door step on a bitter cold night last Winter, looking for a  meal and a warm place to sleep, which she and her family provided for him.  Even tho Bill made himself at home, and always showed up for a meal, and a safe place to sleep when it was too cold or hot , he definitely was an outside kitty.

They never knew if someone moved and left him behind, or  was just left on the side of the road. What ever his story, he was loved and taken care of by his new family - including their spoiled indoor kitty.
 And posted about  here , here, and other posts.
They had been gone from the house for just a short time, picked up dinner to go and when returned found Bill laying on the side of the road. Apparently he was on his way home from one of his adventures, as it was time for dinner and settle in for the night, and was hit by a truck or car.   Thankfully,  "red headed cupid" did not see him.  Bill was buried and the site will be marked another day.
Sweet, lovable, Bill has "Crossed the Rainbow Bridge".

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear this. It's always so difficult to lose a beloved pet, and even worse when it's unexpected like this.

It's so hard to lose a pet, especially one that had adopted you. Hope the family is adjusting well to the loss.
