    I have a feral cat (Kiddy Sue) that refuses to come in the house at all this winter. She always comes in my house on cold winter nights. I don't know what the hell she's doing half the time. It's like we've grown apart. Stupid cat. I miss her and worry about her freezing to death. I know her life will be shorter than a housecat but she's a free bird and lord knows she can't change. I had her spayed and I keep the fleas off her and I feed her good noms. I had her vaccinated but she's due for it again, I think. She'll probably outlive most feral cats, though.

    Because she's an outdoor cat and feral, I'll likely not know how/when/where she died. She'll just never come around again. I get scared when I don't see her for days. Sometimes I keep my window cracked in case she calls me at night to come open the door or bring her food. She hasn't been doing that lately. She used to appear in my driveway whenever I came home. I'm lucky to see her at all now.

    (((KV)))) Beloved pets. They're here and then they're gone. We love them so much and their lifespans are so short, it's excruciating. The best we can do is give them a family to be a part of and love them while they're here. I'm so sorry for your loss, KV.
