Today was a very bad day.
My mother has two cats. She is quite attached to them. She got the cats after my dad died.
One of the cats was killed by a car this morning.
It is a very sad day.
My mother is taking it badly.
I did not take it so well myself. I am upset because of how badly this makes my mother feel. Don't get me wrong Iliekd Buddy and I will miss him as well; however, my sorrow is for my mother not her cat.
My mother loves her cats and they have been a lot of company for her; however, Buddy getting killed by a car just about "ripped her heart out" today.
My kids have taken it pretty well; they really do not understand and they are putting on a brave face for Grandma.
I have never had a pet and I am pretty sure I will never have a pet.
