hi dessi :>
I'm so sorry to hear that, sounds rough. I can't imagine how hard that must be to be away.
Kinda related story. As a kid we had got a third little cute kitten, Sophia, to our family. We were so happy to have Sophia, it was really comforting to have cats in the house, especially this one. But, one day, the wild cat that frequented our house killed Sophia, because we forgot to lock the backdoor. I remember hear Sophia scream. I couldn't handle it. I was really sad...
Btw, hi I'm Deserted Maniac Island (I'm a boy. I don't know I thought I should say that), nice to meet you people!
and very sorry to hear about how your cat went ; __ ;
