  • Oh how sad! :( She has to be told that that's just an expression, b/c cats get themselves into dangerous situations sometimes. Tell her how sorry you are b/c you know how much she loved her cat & how much she will miss it. That she was a great little mama to the cat and that someday maybe she can have another cat to take care of. *hugs*

  • Ok 1. Why does she still have access o the dead cat right now?
    2. Hell her he used up all of his lives and crossed the rainbow bridge.
