Subject: [child] The last of the outdoor cats is dead
Security: Public
the_child and her mother have lost the last outdoor cat. He was hit by a car during the storm, and died under the snow in the back yard. (He had a safe, warm place, it wasn't the storm which killed him.)

So sorry to hear this. But those outdoor cats can be pretty die-hard about being outside...sigh. Lost too many outdoor cats in my life.

Can't seem to keep a good mouser/barn cat for more than a year...

That's hard to deal with; When my mother's cat Angel died when I was 5, (she was outside, and was hit by a car) My father woke me up so I could tell her goodbye. He found her because my cat, Kato, led him to her body when he got home from work that evening.
