Oh my gosh, I'm just horrified imagining you finding your best friend this way. I am so, so sorry. I've witnessed a deaf stray dog being backed over by a truck. He was also napping in the driveway in the sun and that was just an awful experience for me. It's just a horrible situation. I'm sorry you are having to suffer twice, the fact that she was run over and the fact that you are left without your kitty after almost 20 years together. I'm very sorry for your loss. It will be a difficult road ahead. As Dawn also wrote, be kind and gentle with yourself. Come here to help you grieve. It's an up and down process with no rhyme or reason as to why we cry and sob some days and seem to be getting through the day ok on other days. There are so many wonderful people here to help you get through it. Marlen was one the 1st people who wrote to me and comforted me. We all struggle together. Marlen has the experience of having had her pup taken away suddenly and very tragically as well. I had a little more forewarning, but I was still very angry about my loss. The anger has subsided to be replaced by sadness as well as happy memories. Just know that you aren't alone...
