Bootsie got out of the front door last night and was hit and killed by a car, trying to run back home. Fortunately the kids didn't see it, but I'm just devastated. Poor thing, he was so pretty and lovely. I just hate how violent cats deaths are. The kids were finally healing from our other two cats' deaths, and then this. Too soon.
He joins our Crawford in our garden. :(
