After just having lost my Teddy, an 11 year old chow, I was looking for a picture to post when I came across this picture of "Cow" (I called him Cow because he looked like a holstein).  Cow was part of my ferel colony but he was driven away by a new male cat that came along.  Cow took refuge across the road, and when he came for dinner one evening, he was tragically run over by a car whose driver never stopped.  A lady happened to be coming along and saw the whole incident and blocked the road with her car to see if she could help Cow.  But he was killed instantly, so fortunately, did not suffer.  Cow was just becoming tame enough where he would let me pet him.  I still miss him terribly and have this picture hanging in my kitchen where I can see him everyday.  This picture was taken in 2003.  He is in a cat bed on top of his house.  Hope the picture will help to cheer you a little bit.

Hi Judy ~

I just saw this in your other thread, and it brought me a huge smile!  I know that when Cow left this earth, he just kept running to the Rainbow Bridge, unaware of what had happened.  What a blessing for him!

Thank you for sharing this adorable picture of Cow, and for taking such good care of your feral colony.

What a beauty - saddens me that people treat animals like paper cups.

Judy, thanks so much for the Easter Kitty In A Basket.  Cow is a magnificent looking cat.  I'm sure you miss him.

We had three neighborhood deer that always hung around the same curve in the road. Everyone up here knew they were there and watched for them.  One by one they were hit and killed by the laborers that our newer residents can't seem to live without and that speed up and down our narrow street all day long.  People are just oblivious.
