One of the cats here just died. The neighbour found it, we had a knock on the door at midnight. Steph, the owner, had to identify it in a garbage bag with a torch. We’re burying little Echo tomorrow.
It was a good cat, it will be missed. I wish I’d let it jump on my lap more, even when I was eating.
Go and pick up your cat or dog and give it a big hug. It won’t be there forever, it probably won’t have a good ending. And you’ll miss it.
