I'm so sorry to hear that. Please give the child my condolences and tell her (if it helps) that I will be giving my rescue cat a big hug from her tonight.

My sympathies to you all, it's so hard to lose two so quickly.

Oh, that sucks! =(

May I suggest you keep the cats strictly indoors, from now on? There's been studies done--on average, indoor cats live a lot longer than outdoor cats.

I'm so sorry to hear that. Is it simply not an option to have indoor-only cats?

Oh -- I'm so sorry for the_child -- it's hard for us -- it's harder on kids.

If this will help - please share this with her.
